Kate Lewis (on behalf of Alex Blackwood)
I’ve been JRO for 2 years and Green Machine Manager. I attend all the committees. Manifesto point 1: rewrite the election rules. This needs to happen because of a change to the Devote system. * demonstrates knowledge of elections software * . Manifesto point 2: Create a document that outlines all the positions.
Method 1 shpeel
Kate Lewis (on behalf of Jack Stevens for Senior Frep)
I was a frep this year. I enjoyed it much and fulfilled the role thoroughly. I would put an emphasis on welfare in fresher’s week. Would introduce time at racecourse for sports. Emphasis on societies and freshers’ fair. Relevant to me because I felt that I was too slow to join them myself. Propose a 2nd meal in the week for those not on the meal deal. Lasting experiences open day and frapping, as well as disappointing rugby career.
Please go online and vote, method 2 environment rep
*difficulties over 5 people trying to run for 1 position *
Nothing better than the smell of JCR confusion in the air
Situation is resolved by Alice Winstanley running in abstentia
I grew up in Wales near Liverpool so I like the environment. We/I will work tirelessly to save the environment.
Alice is elected.
Reminder to vote.
