En­dorse­ment: Is­abelle Oke

The McGill Daily - - Olde Elections -

Oke’s work with AMUSE, as well as her ex­pe­ri­ence as a Floor Fel­low and as part of the BSN make her a prime can­di­date for this po­si­tion. The VP Uni­ver­sity Af­fairs port­fo­lio re­quires di­rect re­la­tions with the ad­min­is­tra­tion, which Oke also has ex­pe­ri­ence in bar­gain­ing on be­half of AMUSE at the level of the ad­min­is­tra­tion. Her ini­tia­tive to reach out to more stu­dent groups in a more or­ga­nized fash­ion would be a wel­come ad­just­ment con­sid­er­ing many stu­dent groups feel cur­rently alien­ated from the SSMU.

While Dow has a back­ground in stu­dent pol­i­tics with his work in EUS, his lim­ited ex­pe­ri­ence with eq­uity would be a con­sid­er­able dis­ad­van­tage in a po­si­tion which re­quires heavy knowl­edge and ex­pe­ri­ence of both these is­sues. His stance on po­lit­i­cal is­sues is also dis­heart­en­ing, given that the VP Uni­ver­sity Af­fairs is the only ex­ec­u­tive other than the Pres­i­dent who would ad­vo­cate for stu­dents re­gard­ing po­lit­i­cal is­sues at the Uni­ver­sity level.
