USU Election Campaign Period about to kick off!

As some of you may know, the USU election period kicks off next week on Monday 9th May. By now you've probably seen some serious Facebook activity occurring around specific campaign groups. Get involved, join the groups and check out each candidate and what they stand for.

Over the coming weeks our 10 candidates will be getting their faces and messages out there. If you want to get up close and personal with them, make sure you open our Candidate Booklet coming out with this month's edition of The Bull. If you want to know more, come to our Candidate Soapbox happening this coming Tuesday at 1pm. Watch them defend their policies, address the rumours and sweat it out.

Election Day is on May 25th and it will be a grand occasion. Stop by a booth, vote, collect your meal voucher and enjoy the festivities. The USU is last remaining independent Union in the country. Why is that important? Over the past decade, Student Unions around Australia have had their independent sources of income removed, effectively transferring the control of the student experience on campus to University Administrations. Your USU is the last independent Union that gives genuine control of the student experience to actual elected students. So, make sure you pick the candidates that you feel are the most capable of running the largest, oldest and best Student Union in the country, because it's a big responsibility!

Stay tuned for more blog posts!

David Mann
USU President
