     HERE IS A LITTLE LETTER ABOUT THE OTHER CANDIDATES!  REMEMBER....
               WITHOUT A DOUBT...VOTE JENNINGS AND GROUT!


Dear Fellow Classmates,
     We would like to introduce ourselves to you.  We are the alternative.  Our 
names are Samantha Grout and Audrey Jennings, and we're running for President 
and Vice of the SGA.  We are both Juniors, and are actively involved on campus.  
We both are striving for change on the UVM campus and want to put the pieces 
together to create a unified UVM community.  
     How?  Well, first we want to state that for us, the most important people 
on campus are the students.  Without student input, talking with Sororities, 
Fraternities, Club Officers, and Advisors, we wouldn't have put this together.  
We gathered ideas from other colleges, their students and their SGA officers and 
mixed it all together to create our platform.  The suggestions that we received 
made us excited for change.  Then we decided that the best way to share our 
ideas and our enthusiasm was to run for SGA offices.  Here are just some of our 
ideas for change...
     One of our favorite ideas is the creation of the CORT system at UVM.  That 
is the Clubs and Organizations Representative Team.  It is for officers of Clubs 
and Organizations across campus to get together in one room, each club with one 
representative to discuss Club issures.  Funding, spirit, projects, events, and 
fund raising are just some of the issues.  This would allow clubs to have a 
direct link with the SGA. The Vice President of the SGA would sit as chair of 
the CORT, and the representatives would discuss issues during the monthly 
meetings.  The Vice President would report back to the Senate.  This would 
create a close link between the clubs and the SGA.
     We also support another great idea brought to us by one of you--the idea of 
increasing the number of senators in the senate by 5.  Four of the new positions 
would be appointed by the ALANA community in a closed election.  One position 
would be filled by an appointed member of the GLBA community.  This is how 
Loyola increased diveristy on the senate.  THe positions would remain appointed 
for a set time period, most likely five years.  Once the appointments are not 
necessary and the voice of the ALANA and GLBA community are being heard during 
the common elcetions, the appointments will be terminated.  We agree that this 
is an important issue and feel the UVM community will benefit and become more 
unified from it.  
     Here are a few more ideas that we will briefly throw at you:
****On line course evaluations created by students.  If you want to know about a 
course or a professor, look it up!  No censorship by professors, faculty, or the 
administration!
****Involving Graduate students in clubs and organizations!
****Increase funding for clubs!
****On line test archives...want to know the type of test your professor gives?  
Look up the test s/he gave last year!
****Home/Web pages for all clubs
****Get instantaneous SGA updates for your organization over your clubs personal 
email address which eliminates old paper mail and wasted trips to the box at the 
SGA office
****We will fight against mandatory Deferred RUSH and promote the Greek 
community!
****Challenge the administration to be seen on campus.  You know, come to the 
round room for lunch...WE DARE YOU TO STEP OUT OF WATERMAN!
****We believe and care about off-campus student housing rights, we will fight 
for you!
****We believe spirit can be found at UVM and look forward to working with 
students and the Greek community to bring back UVM pride!
THESE ARE JUST A FEW OF THE IDEAS BROUGHT TO US BY YOU!  You are what counts at 
UVM.  That is why we believe in STUDENTS FIRST!

We hope that you, our peers, see that we do care about you and UVM.  We hope to 
guide UVM into the future with on line voting and hope to cherish the past with 
enhancing spirit and tradition.  It is possible to have the best of both worlds 
we heard that from all of the students we talked to across campus!

Remember......

     WITHOUT A DOUBT...VOTE JENNINGS AND GROUT!
