Braun wants USC continuity
By Aaron Wherry
Dave Braun is one of seven candidates vying for the USC's presidential office next year.
Braun's plan also includes expanding the USC's involvement in Campus Advantage, an organization made up of several university councils which aims help save students' money. "Campus Advantage has the power of 100,000 students. This will get students the best deal on cell phones, the best products and the best savings."
TV Western is also a priority for Braun, something he said must be repaired, not terminated. "Mend it, don't end it," he said, adding more resources are needed to ensure TV Western can effectively communicate with students and fulfill its potential.
Instituting these ideas would take strong leadership, he said, adding he can provide such leadership. "I'm a strong leader. I have the ability to lead others and inspire confidence in others and I'm still more optimistic than I've ever been," he said. "I effectively communicate with different groups around campus, with administration and with different levels of government."
Still, he admits, council could have done a better job of communicating with students. "I think in the past we haven't done a good job of communicating with students. We need to do more."
