Meet the Anderson 2017 executive ticket
Get to know the Anderson 2017 ticket, the only ticket to be running in this year’s Undergraduate Student Government elections on the Polytechnic campus. Julia Anderson, a history and english junior, is campaigning to be USGP’s next President, alongside Jacob Phillabaum, an engineering sophomore running for Vice President of Services and James Larson, an engineering junior running for Vice President of Policy.
What are your policy and platform ideas?
Julia Anderson: “We’re going to be restructuring the budget and eliminating one of the committees … we’re replacing (the) outreach committee with appropriations … I want USG to be more accessible to students and I want it to serve the purpose that it’s meant for. I think that USG has been run pretty well this past year, but I would like, when I’m President, for it to function more as students come to us as students coming to us for something they want fixed or if that want to see something on campus. We hear their needs and their problems.”
“I want USG to be pretty transparent for students, and I want more students to be involved and feel comfortable coming to us.”
Why are you qualified for the offices you seek?
JA: “I’ve been very involved since I came to Poly. I was the student lead of Changemaker for a year, and I’ve been working at Changemaker for two years now. I’ve been in Student Government since I was a sophomore, as a Senator and Chair of University Affairs.”
