SGA candidates to face off in Wednesday debate

Mike Stunson

All five candidates running for Student Government Association executive offices will participate in a public debate from 7 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. tomorrow in Downing University Center outside the food court.

The candidates will answer questions by moderators from the Herald and will take additional questions from students in attendance.

President Colton Jessie said the debate is always a good thing to have for students to get a better feel for the candidates.

“The people who are running know each other really well,” Jessie said. “They know each others’ strengths and weaknesses, so it should be interesting.”

He said the candidates won’t know what questions will be asked, but he expects questions will revolve around the DUC renovations as well as tuition increases.

“We will be discussing issues everybody in student government thinks about and what students want to know,” he said.
