President – Bryan West

While he may not like to hear it, Bryan West is the candidate of the old guard.

Like many frustrated students who… Continue reading President – Sonia Bloomer

This clear lack of caring shows he is in this race since he saw no one else running initially. He will most likely simply take his free parking pass and go to… Continue reading Senate – Brett Pearce
