David Adewumi A No-Show For First Debate

David Adewumi and his running mate Sri Pisupati decided not to attend the first of the two UPUA Presidential Debates on Monday night held in Alumni Hall. The other three tickets (Bard-Lennartz, Salters-Quinn and Grimes-Wentz) were present for the event.

Adewumi, who ran for the presidency last year, is thought to not be attending because of a meeting he already scheduled for his initiative, ONEPSU, which will be taking place in Thomas Building at 9:00 p.m. He did not inform the UPUA Elections Committee of his absence until right before the debate which is why his spot was left empty as the debate started. Adewumi and Prisupati later released a blog post and tweets explaining their absence.

For Lewis, UPUA Legitimacy Was Key

When people looked at Hillary Lewis, all they saw was a sorority girl. How could they know that she was a savvy political veteran, with experience dating back to elementary school? That she'd been the president of her middle school? That to her, the seemingly insurmountable task of making UPUA a legitimate student government wasn't just an aim, but a reachable attainment? Now, Lewis can look back and smile because she earned the last laugh, but, five years ago, it wasn't so easy to turn the other cheek.
