Last Thursday those who attended the meeting voted on which candidates FotF will be endorsing for the upcoming AMS and Board of Governors (BoG) elections. Most (if not all) candidates running for executive positions in the AMS and the Board of Governors include “saving the Farm” in their platforms. It has become very clear in election debates this past week that only a few of the candidates can articulate what that means and have the political experience to make the farm a priority for the AMS this coming year.
Having a strong AMS executive and BoG student reps. is essential for university affairs and decision making regarding the farm and other important issues at UBC (especially development!). For more information about the structure of the AMS and BoG, candidates’ platforms, debate schedules and election details please visit the AMS website.
If you are an undergraduate or graduate student at UBC, PLEASE VOTE!!! These elections are important. Click through for our endorsements…
