What are your policy and platform ideas?
Ryan Leith: "The main three pillars of our campaign are engage, excel and empower. It's three parts for the three different people. We want to focus on these things both separately and together."
"Excel was mine, which is focusing on utilizing other campus' USG's to excel in our lobbying efforts. Also that means trimming down the bureaucratic parts of our government, changing the bylaws so that it's less jumbled up."
Jade Nicole Yeban: "Engage is the part that goes along with my priorities. We need to make resources more available to students, and then really change the way USGD outreaches and engages with the student body. I think that it could be done better, a lot of students don't know about what USGD does and we have the power to do that."
Jackson Dangremond: "We hope to empower our students to use their voices to make changes on university and state wide levels. We really aspire to be a resource for students, and we really want to provide meaningful support for them. We believe that the best kind of leaders are not the ones that stand in the front of the people and tell them what to do, but those who stand behind them and their efforts to enact change themselves."
