SGA Presidential and Vice Presidential Campaigns

Nicole Bradley is running for SGA president in 2013-14.

Nicole Bradley & Harrison Hadland

When I was a freshman at St. Edward’s University, I met two people who really stood out to me; the soon to be president and vice president of the Student Government Association (SGA).  Their passion for the university and pride in their positions sparked something inside of me and motivated me to join the association.  After two years as a senator, I am happy to report that spark has not subsided.  Today I am a senior psychology major and communication minor who wants to make SGA my number one priority.  I am hoping that you, the student body, will see my potential and desire to run the association and elect me to serve as your SGA President. 

As a senator, I have worked on initiatives such as researching a tobacco-free campus, creating a more student-friendly SGA, and working on appeasing the removal of December graduation.  I am especially invested in finishing the development of a unified class ring and ring ceremony, improving communication lines between administration and the student body, as well as reaching out to student organizations.  As president, I want to be a representative of the student body and take action with administration to make St. Edward’s an even greater community.

My name is Harrison Hadland, and I am sophomore Political Science major. I have devoted my two terms as a senator towards strengthening Student Government Association’s (SGA) ties within the St. Edward’s University community and encouraging collaboration and partnerships with other student organizations. This includes advocating for and now developing an official class ring and ring ceremony alongside Transitional Experiences Council, registering voters with College Democrats, throwing an on-campus Halloween Party and Haunted House with the Residence Hall Association, advocating for a Green Fund alongside Students for Sustainability and sponsoring a study hall with the Health and Wellness Center. I also helped craft legislation to require senator visits to student organizations to discuss campus issues.

I now pursue the office of vice president to continue to expand the organization’s reach and effectiveness. I will do so by being at each orientation during the summer, increasing the number and activity of non-officer SGA members, instituting greater organization and structure within Senate and working diligently to increase communication between students and the administration. Finally, I want to continue the tradition of working with motivated students and organizations to affect change, address issues and build a stronger community here at St. Edward’s.

Octavio Sanchez & Michael Cimino

Are you tired of poor parking? Are you frustrated with the rising tuition costs and fees? You are not alone. My name is Octavio Sanchez, and these are the types of issues that inspired me to run for 2013-14 Student Body President.

My goal as president is to first and foremost empower the students to reach out to the administration. It is with your voice that we can grab the administration’s attention and influence change on our campus. As president, I will take into consideration every issue, big or small, and present them to the administration.

Through my leadership, the Student Government Association will strive for the best solutions possible. I will diligently work to internally reform the Student Government (SGA) to better suit your needs. In accordance with student needs, I hope to increase communication from the bottom up; it is important to me that the student body has a say in the major decisions of the University. I will do this by implementing a freedom of speech zone, keeping all SGA members accountable and cultivating meaningful relationships with the administration.

Remember a vote for Sanchez-Cimino is a vote to empower students!

I stand for many things, chief among them being responsibility. Responsibility is that quality our parents drill into us when we’re little and pray that it sticks to us in some way. Responsibility was important to me then and it is important to me now because without it people would not be motivated to help others, do their jobs or perform kind acts to others. Responsibility is more than about doing your fair share, it’s about doing what is right not because it is your job, but because it is the right thing to do.  My name is Michael Cimino, and I want to be your vice president of Student Government Association (SGA).  

If elected, I promise a Senate body whose sole responsibility will be the well-being of the students, who we are here to serve. In the words of Uncle Ben, “With great power comes great responsibility,” and that is how I will choose to run this office.
