News Brief

President needs special friends
Want to be a president, but fear being assassinated? Then a vice-presidency may be in your cards.

Nominations for the four VP positions on the University Students’ Council are now open and applications can be picked up at the USC office in Rm. 340 of the University Community Centre, said USC speaker Julie Cassidy. The deadline for applying is Friday, Feb. 20 and applications must be returned to the USC office, she added.

Any Western student can run for the positions, which include VP-student affairs, VP-education, VP-finance and VP-campus issues.

“They are elected internally by the old and new council,” Cassidy explained, adding the campaigning process is composed of meeting with councillors and pressing their case as to why they would be the best VP. “The voters (USC councillors) should all be very educated on the topic.

“They essentially set the tone for the year,” Cassidy stated. “They impact and influence the programming the USC does.”

“I encourage people to talk to current VPs and find out what the positions entail,” she said.
