Vote for Igor Tregub for Senate, #131
[Disclosure, Igor is one of my fraternity brothers, but after reading this, I think it will be obvious that this reccomendation is not based on any personal relationship.]
A while ago I asked Senators to submit information on what their goals were coming into this year, and how they had done accomplishing them. Igor was the only Senator to respond to me with an e-mail discussing what he had managed to achieve this year. This shows his extreme dedication to the job and the responsibilty he shows that makes him an exemplary public servant. Whether you are Student Action, CalSERVE, or something else, Igor Tregub is someone that you should be proud to have as a representative.
Regarding the other Senators lack of responses, that is completely in line with all the evidence we have seen that shows that ASUC Senators do not take their campaign promises seriously. There is zero accountability in the current system, and none of them seem at all interested in seeing that change. I think next year, a coalition made up of bloggers, the Daily Cal, and independent and third party candidates could make prior performance salient enough to have an impact. For this year, it is too late for any broad changes, but Igor's devotion to accountability and service should earn him your vote.
For those interested in Igor's self-reflection on his performance, I have included his response to my intial questions. You can download it below. He broke down his experience into the following categories:
1) Outreach to student groups
2) Outreach to housing communities
3) Outreach to Engineering and Northside
Igor has an indepth discussion of where he succeeded, where work must still be done, and other projects he undertook that he feels benefitted the school. Seriously, anyone who places this much weight on his performance as a Senator deserves to be reelected. Download the file and see: IgorTregubCASR.docEmail This Post!
