Meet the Leonardi 2017 executive ticket
Get to know the Leonardi 2017 ticket, one of two tickets running in this year’s Undergraduate Student Government elections on the West campus. Attilio Leonardi, business data analytics sophomore, is running to be the USGW president, alongside vice president of policy candidate and global management sophomore, Daniel E. Rule, and vice president of services candidate and biology junior Paul Max Putnam.
What are your policy and platform ideas?
Attilio Leonardi: “First we will be trying to double the childcare subsidy at West campus. This will help students with children pay for daycare. West campus has a high percentage of adult students returning to college and want to help them cover their daycare costs. This will come out of PAB funding.”
Paul Max Putnam: “The childcare subsidy, we already have one on this campus but we would be increasing it to allow for daycare or childcare for children while (students are) in classes.”
AL: “We will be doubling the professional development budget and expanding it to include graduate exam preparation books. We also will be increasing the Professional Development budget to $500 per student.”
“Thirdly, we will propose a research fund from the West campus. This money will come from a USG event spending cuts and a minimum cut of 75 percent to the PAB budget. We will also set a minimum budget for the marketing of events so that student engagement can be prioritized.”
