As is being reported in the Daily Universe today, the proposed initiatives of the candidates running for office in this year’s BYUSA elections may actually happen, assuming of course that both teams running for the presidency actually make it through the election process without triggering some little-known technicality.
Candidates John Romney and Jason Linford, who were unexpectedly disqualified after winning last year’s election, are pleased that the BYU administration gave them the option of having their proposed initiatives pre-approved by the ASB this year. “Last year, we were proposing that we have an open nomination process and wider access to election results,” remarked Linford, “but this year we are glad to know that the administration is helping us keep our goals realistic, like putting a calendar of events on the BYU Homepage.”
The other candidates, Summer Price and Devon Glassman, were also pleased with the administration’s interest in their platform. Price said, “It is just good to know that the Lord’s university is being lead by men and women with such an interest in all aspects of student life. Why, if it weren’t for them, Devon and I might have campaigned for a student government with actual power on campus? Who knows what might have happened then?”
