UA Q&ABy Harel Williams and Rose Grabowski
UA Coordinating Committee Members
I just found out that elections for class of 2007 officers closed online at midnight last night -- but I so desperately wanted to write-in the new Walker Noodle Bar as my class VP. Is there any way I can still do this?
--Touched by a Noodle
You are correct that online voting closed last night, but the election is not over. There will be a voting booth in Lobby 10 from 9 a.m.-5 p.m. today for undergrads to vote for both Senate and Class Council elections. Your Noodle Bar may win yet.
Yo, keep this on the DL. I’m running for a UA Senate position, but I’m afraid I’m going to lose. But, let’s say I offer to perform some “favors” for certain “members” of the election commission. Would that seal the deal?
--Whatever It Takes
Unfortunately, bribery of any kind is against the election code and simply immoral. However, if you do lose, we’ll be sure to put your “talents” to good use. For example, there are various committees one can join such as the nominations committee and the public relations committee. We would personally recommend the PR committee to a creative individual like you who’s willing to go the extra “mile.”
A few weeks ago I read the section of your column that explained the role of the sexiest man in the UA (i.e. Pius Uzamere II, UA president) -- but what about the sexiest woman? Who is she and what does she do?
Funny you should ask because we happen to have a very powerful and extremely hot woman in the UA, Ling Wong, who is speaker of the Senate. This is basically parallel to UA president, with the president being head of the executive branch and the speaker being head of the legislative branch. You can catch Ling in action at Senate meetings every other Monday starting Sept. 15.
Does anyone actually ask you questions? It seems like you guys just make this stuff up at 2 a.m. before a deadline.
Unfortunately, we have received very few actual questions to date. Maybe students feel they can’t match our sarcastic wit, but to be honest, all the questions we created ourselves have been based on actual questions received in person, albeit “spiced up” before going to print. E-mail us questions. Seriously. We can’t be this creative all semester.
