LET THE BATTLE BEGIN.
It’s that time of year again - the part time officer exec elections in SUBU. The executive committee is made up of a fantastic group of student volunteers who meet once a week to discuss student issues. Louise, Murray, Sophie and I couldn’t possibly represent all the 18,000 students we have here at BU - which is why we need the executive committee. We expect them to talk to students in between our weekly meetings and report back any issues or concerns they hear. We also like them to get involved with campaigns and become ambassadors for SUBU.
Running in an election is a great experience. I loved walking around uni with a red bucket, full of red sweets, with red balloons, as part of my Ruby Red campaign when I ran in the full time officer elections.
It’s no easy task walking up to students to ask them to vote for you…especially if they look at you with a blank expression as if to say “who are you? what are you doing? please go away and leave me to eat my lunch and talk to my friends” So to all of those who are running - keep at it, you’re doing a great job!
It’s important to consider who you believe can best represent you and your views before voting. Please read the candidates manifestos here or watch their videos/read their manifestos and vote for your new executive committee here.
Happy Voting! :) Love Ruby x
