Quinn/Feghali Ticket Kicks Off UPUA Campaign

In front of a nearly full Osmond classroom, the first official campaign event of the 2012 UPUA election season came to be. With her campaign staff donned in pink, Maggie Quinn and running mate Gina Feghali launched their presidential campaign and unveiled their platform to an audience that included dignitaries of the likes of Smeal Representative Elias Warren.

During a short presentation, Quinn reiterated that she has the best track record of proven success of the three executive tickets. Quinn was the VP candidate on the failed Travis Salters presidential ticket last year and served as the UPUA press secretary this past year.

Quinn’s VP candidate, Gina Feghali, also addressed the audience. Feghali is a representative from the College of Communications and was recently selected to the Lion Ambassadors. Feghali may have already coined a campaign slogan on her twitter — #Quinning — but we’ll have to wait and see exactly how much quinning she’ll be doing during the next two weeks leading up to the March 28 election.

Their campaign platform, which fills 9-pages (President T.J. Bard still gets the last laugh with 17), can be found on their website. Onward State will have a comprehensive profile and analysis of the Quinn/Feghali candidacy later, but one thing is for certain — after a long wait, UPUA election season is officially here.
