    A Girl for YUSU Pres

    Given that the incumbent has made it even more of a cult of personality tham before (its not just ego, he’s been really ineffective).

    Its sad to see that given the relative lack of attention given to the other posts, only one woman is standing for YUSU Pres in a field of nine.

  9. People always complain about not having a female president in so many years, yet hardly anyone enters the race. Don’t buy a ticket you don’t win the lottery.

  11. Daniel Whitmore was probably one of the worst academic officers I’ve ever seen during my time at York. Imagine what he’d be like as president.

  14. Without sounding biased towards any candidate but what has Dan Whitmore actually achieved in terms of academic officer? Cass and George seem to have done a job well done and deserve the opportunity for re-election but Dan…

    Please, no. Just no.

    If Tom A-C or Andy Lake, people pretty well known for being gigantic assholes, win the election than I will vomit. In envelopes. Which I will then sign and address to the new YUSU pres.

    Smiling Politely

    Josie is by far the most grounded candidate running for prez, her campaign is sensible and thought-through…refreshing when compared to her egotistical competitors.
