I got the chance to work with Chuck Wilson at the Engineering and Computer Science Association (ECA). When I heard he was running for VP Academic and Advocacy of the CSU, I was hesitant, not because he couldn’t do it, but because the ECA would lose its most prized possession. Handling academic affairs is the language of chuck’s soul. His passion for student life is nothing short of unbelievable. Student leader and engineering guru, Chuck really made a nest in the engineering world of undergraduate student life. I have no doubt that Chuck will prove to all the undergraduates that Concordia can excel in academic affairs. This opinion isn’t to tell you to vote for Chuck Wilson for the CSU, it’s to tell everyone who can hear me that the CSU needs him. I am very excited to see what Concordia could be, and who better to show me than a born leader?
At the behest of ASFA I have been requested to promote some of those running for CSU this coming election. In a sea of zealous buffoonery that is student politics, there does stand one magnificent exception to this generalization, and that is Alexis Suzuki. In my past years of experience dealing with ASFA, there has been a constant trend of naivety yielding a lack of efficiency and a decline of respect for the group as whole from the science student population – this year turned that around. This years executives were extremely efficient and professional in all of our dealings with complete transparency and practicality in terms of actions/decisions made by the executive in question as per each endeavour that we faced together. When I say this, I am thinking of the activities of Alexis Suzuki and Laura Gomez, both of whom have done a fantastic job of keeping their opinions in check and doing their best to keep their decisions/actions/statements at an objective level that is absent of any form of bias or subtext. While Laura is not, to my knowledge, running for anything in terms of the CSU, Alexis is running for and should be elected as the VP of Student Life. Alexis has been both transparent and objective in her actions (including response to criticism), in all of her presentations and decisions made in her position as the VP Communications of ASFA. All in all, people always wonder why the people that should be running student goverment never run for set positions, well one of them is now. Vote for Alexis for the CSU’s VP of Student Life, its the smart thing to do.
