Next, we interviewed each candidate separately, asking the same questions, and printing their unedited responses.Finally, we ask you, before voting, to review their answers and choose well--you will hear of them all year long. Thomai Epllng Assistant editor f ' i i ! ' . 1 . ' Johnnie Rawllnsonfne College Times Gary S. Winterton "EDGE" candidate for Student Body President CT Why do you want public office? Gary The past year, h nas been exciting to be involved in helping the students, bringing issues and their ideas up front. Listening to them. Voting on them. Trying to find the best way to resolve their concerns and I have really enjoyed that. And so I am interested in seeing UVCC progress. Use my talents and my abilities to solve student issues and student concerns. CT Explain your agenda for the presidency. Gary My agenda would be to take the issues that are in the process of being worked, complete those, and bring other issues such as testing center, student fees, parking that the students feel are very important up to the table and move them through. Continue progressing the school towards four-year degrees and a four-year college. Trying to solve one way or another See EDGE PARTY, page 9 Kenneth C. Patey "X" candidate for Student Body President CT Why do you want public office? Ken I had the experience of trying to get funds for an organization I represent and as I tried it out and realized how hard it was, I realized that it wasn't just the organization which I was representing at the time, but also pep band and athletics and all campus clubs and organizations. I began to realize that if we had creative saving instead of creative spending, that we could help out these clubs and organizations. I like to see this become a four-year college, and it is not going to become a four-year college unless we can make the clubs and organizations better so that they can be accreditable to be a four-year college. You help the clubs and organizations and you help the departments. I saw how hard it was for the little guy to get his voice in, and it didn't work. Student government is kind of like a business. I am the owner See X PARTY, page 9 Student fees support activities, alumni and computer labs Rob Buchert Staff Writer It may cost a little more to be a UVCC student, if students vote in favor of the new student fees. But the benefits may be worth it. The activities fee increase would go to fund student clubs. To provide money to the organizations in the future, the student government set up the "Students Discretionary Fund" says Student body President Kelly Bitters, "It will be solely for the purpose of giving back to the clubs and organizations." The increased computer fee $3 to $5 will go to update the campus computers in the open labs and in instructional areas. Bitters says that Lucille Stoddard, vice president of academic affairs came to the student government and asked that students help pay since it would be available to all in the open labs. The alumni fee would go to the On the ballot: A $2 increase in Student Activities Fees A $2 increase in Compute Lab Fees A new 50C Alumni Fee A new 50 Testing Center Fee Discontinuation of a $1.50 Library Fee Discontinuation of $4.50 Secondary Student Insurance Fee UVCC Alumni Association which has existed for only two years. Being so new, the association needs money to get started. The fee would further the growth of the association, which exists, according to the associations fee proposal, "for the purpose of supporting UVCC and making it a better school." With student investment "the Alumni Association will build a base, become strong, and then give back to the college," according to the proposal.The new Testing Center fee would make it possible for the Center to extend its current weekday hours and remain open on weekends. There presently isn't the funding to do so. Students will be asked to vote for or against the removal of the current library Fee. Three years ago the library approached the student government about help with the purchase of books that year, really a responsibility of the state says Bitters. The fee was formed but never taken off after the requested year. The $4.50 insurance fee covers all students up to $10,000 for any injury sustained on campus or during school activities. It's a secondary policy, meaning that it is effective after a primary policy, or as a primary policy if the student has no other insurance. Currently 60 of the claims made on this are from the athletic department, 35 from trades and the remaining 5 from the rest of the student body. If the fee is voted out the coverage will have to come from some other department, which means money from students in another way.
