Sol G. Writes, We’re Harvard. Let’s Vote Like It!

Harvard University
Maxwell Dworkin, Room G115

33 Oxford Street

 6:30 PM.

Be there. Bring your ID.

We are having elections. Yes, “us”. You and I. I’m going to mention that I am running for a post: in the interests of full disclosure, yes. I am. But I’m not going to talk about that part here, because that wouldn’t be fair. Also, I plan to volunteer if I don’t win, because it is more important that we get involved… similarly, it’s more important THAT you vote, than HOW you vote.

And that’s what I’m asking you to do, as a fellow student served by the same student government.

There are a lot of extremely motivated, personable, capable people running for posts. I was privileged with the opportunity to meet most of them at campaigning meeting; I’m always thrown by how real enthusiasm shows through. These are people who want to help, who want to get out there and make changes for us, the students, because they ARE students.

So Extension School students: You are part of Harvard. We have a student goverment to represent us. Friday night, come out and vote. Bring your ID to the meeting, get a ballot, hear the speeches, and vote. It matters, because you matter. By having a strong student government, we have the ability to see our issues voiced and acted upon. We have people to speak to, who can speak for us.

I’ll see you there. I don’t care who you vote for (and as soon as possible, will link to the information for EVERY candidate, so that you can see them all!) I’ll see you Friday. Yes, there will be an option for distance students. Again, please use it!

As for me, I’m going to use the opportunity of running for candidacy to campaign relentlessly for you to vote for someone, anyone, because what I really want is to see people there. All of you. Show us all just how much Harvard is OUR school, too! Gather your classmates, get out the vote, come over on the 6th and speak with the ballot. The goal is to have more students voting than ever, and to be a voice for our own representation.

Make me proud!!
