Vox loves GUSA elections. Full of semi-self-conscious pageantry and hilarious demonstrations of Hoyas’ varying skill levels with Final Cut Pro, the February presidential elections always offer a good laugh during the doldrums of winter. This year is no different.
GUSA senator Daniel LaMagna (COL ’13), or DJ LaMagnz as he is known in these parts, has launched a juggernaut of a campaign for the presidency. With men’s basketball player Markel Starks (COL ’14) as his running mate, LaMagna has already distinguished himself from other GUSA candidates by submitting the smallest budget proposal of any candidate (a mere 48 words long, including the 10-word title) and asking if candidates are allowed to visit the bathroom during the presidential debate Sunday night.
LaMagna launched his campaign a few days after his competitors in order to avoid being lost in the noise, but if his campaign is anything like this Youtube video and his debate performance, he won’t have any problem standing out from the crowd. We won’t spoil it for you, but we’ll say that LaMagna’s campaign manager Ziad Jawadi (COL ’15) is clearly a graduate of the Mark Block school of videography.
