“He’s got the most shit in there … he’s got the warmest shit … and he’s got a fuckin’ ice table,” quoth a drunk student at a Village A rooftop party, where GUSA executive candidates Arman Ismail (COL’11) and Tucker Stafford (COL ’12) seem to have filmed most of their second campaign video.
In a message from the “Arman Ismail and Tucker Stafford for GUSA 2010″ Facebook group, Stafford explained, “This is a new short vid shot just to keep the good times rolling and to remind everyone to keep spreading the word as elections are on this Tuesday Feb 23rd!”
And to remind everyone to “vote for the big sexy,” of course.
In case you missed it when we added it on to our post about Ismail and Stafford’s first video, GUSA alum Matt Stoller (COL ’08) also tipped us off to the existence of a video of Ismail doing a delightful impression of Heath Ledger’s Joker.
If GUSA presidential election season were like the Christmas season—and it’s not—GUSA candidate surveys would be like family togetherness, and GUSA campaign videos would be like presents. The former are nice, the latter, delightful.
Nothing will ever meet the awesomeness of former GUSA executives Ben Shaw (COL ’08) and Matt Appenfeller’s (COL ’08) “Vote in a Box” video or the goofiness of David Dietz (COL ‘10) and Tyler Stone’s (COL ‘09) “GEORGET OWN IT“, but we’re amused nonetheless by Arman Ismail (COL ’11) and Tucker Stafford’s (COL ’12) “Believe 2010.” Vox hopes there are more videos to come.
It’s that time of year again. Vox has sent the 2010 version of its annual Georgetown University Student Association Candidate Survey to each of the four Presidential and Vice Presidential hopefuls and we’re posting their (usually long-winded) responses as we receive them.
This year, we’re asking candidates things like what they think of club funding reform, how the University has handled the 2010 Campus Plan, and how they’d evaluate President Calen Angert (MSB ‘11) and Vice President Jason Kluger’s (MSB ‘11) time in office. (Or in Angert and Kluger’s case, their own time in office).
Up today is current Senator Arman Ismail (COL ’11) and running mate Tucker Stafford (COL ‘12). NB, they have declined to answer “How would you characterize Angert’s time in office?”
What are three things you’d try to accomplish as GUSA execs?
One of the issues that we plan to address is the transparency of GUSA. In putting together this campaign, we discovered just how hard it is to get important information from GUSA. Sometimes it is impossible for us to get the information we need, and when we get information we need it is sometimes so complex that it is hard to interpret. We plan on not only making it possible for a student to get a hold of any GUSA paperwork but also to be able to understand it. We will simplify the information coming out of GUSA (particularly with budgeting) so that students can know where their money is going.
We also plan to make the students’ experience at Leo’s a better one. We will take measures to pressure Leo’s to ensure that there are enough utensils for everyone. In addition we will address the concerns of those who have medical or religious dietary restrictions. Sometimes food is not labeled properly, so some students are unsure what is in their food. We will ensure that all food in Leo’s is marked properly.
