Elections

 

 

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.

 

AF:

 

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.

 

 

AF:

 

Please go online and vote, method 2 environment rep

 

*difficulties over 5 people trying to run for 1 position *

 

Sam Jones:

 

Nothing better than the smell of JCR confusion in the air

 

Situation is resolved by Alice Winstanley running in abstentia

 

Alice Winstanley:

 

I grew up in Wales near Liverpool so I like the environment. We/I will work tirelessly to save the environment.

 

Alice is elected.
