URSU diligently reports on itself(???)
Candidates faced questions, criticisms and kudos at forum
This past Thursday (March 10) candidates running in the URSU General Election answered questions and discussed pressing topics as the campaign heads into its final week. Thursday’s event will be followed by another similar event Tuesday March 15 before the voting period begins. Candidates presented their platforms and students voiced their concerns, developing into an enthusiastic and democratic debate.
While current URSU Executives had to explain their actions and defend their decisions, those seeking to unseat them were forced to evaluate the feasibility and affordability of their platforms and the practical ways they plan to keep their promises. Dozens of students gave congratulations and criticisms, as those who attended heard spirited debate and insightful questions. What few interruptions there were resulted in further analysis of the topics at hand and allowed the audience more opportunity to voice their concerns.
Look – we've met URSU's current communications rep, and he's a nice-seeming dude who also clearly takes his job a bit seriously, since URSU has seen a sharp increase in news postings and press releases over the last month.
But this seems a little off-base. No offense, URSU communications rep, but this is kind of our job? Readers, you can head over to the Carillon's Twitter feed if you missed last week's all-candidates forum, and if you want coverage of this week's forum (tomorrow at noon in the Riddell Centre multipurpose room) there'll be an online-only story about it as well.
