  Senate: Brent KettlesPDF files may take a moment to load

Kettles speaks first and foremost about student advocacy guiding his potential role on the senate. He domineers conversation, is charismatic and well spoken. It is not hard to see he could indeed be a strong voice for the students to the other senators--senators Kettles feels are more student friendly than their Board of Governors counterparts.

  VP Op-Fi: Joel LockwoodPDF files may take a moment to load

At the top of Joel's list is the MacEwan Student Centre redevelopment--he put forth many solid, realistic and specific ideas that could help make it a great place to come for lunch, study, relax or anything you please, citing seating comfort and a lounge or two as preliminary goals. His plan to implement a better Campus One Card has failedin the past, but Lockwood suggested expanding the card to non-university run businesses and possibly off-campus sites.

  President: Nick VuckovicPDF files may take a moment to load

Nick Vuckovic's pledge to lobby for Harvey Weingarten's impeachment is certainly a polarizing stance. Our own panel was fairly evenly split, with some agreeing Harv has done nothing to better the undergrad experience, while others see Vuckovic' s campaign pledge as a publicity ploy and an unrealistic goal. Vuckovic himself played down his vow to fight for a new U of C president, saying it wasn't the lynchpin of his campaign, but an important goal nonetheless.

  Senate: Matt TrottaPDF files may take a moment to load

Soft spoken and with a slightly wavery voice, one wonders how Trotta fared over his last year as Senate representative. Occasionally awkward in his articulations, Trotta seems like an unlikely choice to represent the often strong viewpoints of the general undergraduate population.
