Lawless has the gusto for office
By Mike Murphy
Mike Lawless is one of seven candidates vying for the USC presidential office
Lawless also said he would conduct opinion polls to gauge student attitudes about the USC's performance. "There are problems on campus with how much people care about this council. This would be a way to find out why," he said.
Another Lawless platform promise includes be the implementation of a system of comprehensive year-end reporting for council, that would make it clear to students where the USC has spent student money.
Lastly, this presidential candidate said he would like to launch a mass promotional campaign encouraging Western alumni employers to hire students graduating from Western. Lawless said the USC tries hard to ease students' transitions from high school to university, but does little to help students moving out of university and into the working world.
"It will benefit students. It will give them that extra little push," he said.
Asked what makes him the hardiest survivalist on election island, Lawless said his energetic disposition and extensive experience put him over the top.
"I think I've got an energy that's unmatched," he said. "I've got a wealth of experience at every level of university government."
Lawless added he is someone who consistently makes things happen. "Anything I've ever said I'll do, I do."
