Refuge Elections: The Candidates

There are exemptions to be given out? Sorry, I didn’t read the rules. Or any details. Or anything really.

If given exemptions I imagine I’d sell them to the highest bidder for personal gain, naturally. Ones estate doesn’t pay for itself. To do anything else would be socialism. I should know. I’m the Socialist candidate.

Looking forward to this campaign! great energy among the refugees and together our pooled ideas can do great things!
When will we be having debate threads? With questions posed to the candidates? @pushdraw @Randy

nest memberships for all, they should not be controlled by private companies & for profit

(I think the other guy thinks @pushdraw is @djpie.)

I see it as another opportunity to do some good. Rather than ask for a monetary donation for the remaining spots, I would ask anyone interested in acquiring an exemption to volunteer in their communities. It doesn’t have to be grand gesture, just something to improve the world around you. Anyone who submits proof of legitimate volunteer work is added to a random drawing.

So many great ideas to pool together, why not have greater representation than just one person. We could even have three or five elected officials who can all champion their ideas to each other then vote on which should be implemented.

I almost titled my post “Student Body President 2.0” but I figured that wouldn’t get many clicks.

A drawing of what? Like a tree? A horse? And who’s doing this drawing? Who’s paying them? Do you expect to get that for free too?

I just made this thread to keep things together…I know a debate was mentioned to and acknowledged by Randy yesterday…

I’m sure he is deep in the process (read: at the beach and/or napping) planning a Presidential Debate

I’d be happy to step up and facilitate if given the power, but that is to be discussed

Love it! Join me and we’ll campaign for this together!!

Hahaha funny! I do know who’s who though! :grinning:

Hey. It’s Dougal McGuire, right.

I used to know a few McGuire’s over Mayo way. Great golfers on account of the 6 fingers. Any relation?

Mark, you know I love you, but this is the pandering and unrealistic “free vending machines” student council speech we’ve all heard before from the popular kid running for office.

I am currently holding roughly $7000 of Refugee funds in my PayPal account. And an additonal 90ish mailing addresses and misc. user data that some might find valuable.
Does anyone think that is enough leverage to buy me enough votes to win the election?

I believe only feasible candidates would be allowed in the debate. Better luck next time.

At worst it could get you a spot in the NIT, I’m sure

You should invest it

Nice to see you’re already in the spirit of open debate and free election! Must feel threatened already! I welcome all candidates, bring on the debates

Very small world! My parents were Mayo people and big golfers, great part of the world! Hope to see you out on the trail
