Quinn/Feghali Ticket Distributes Pink SWAG

Pink was the theme last night in 102 Thomas, as Maggie Quinn held a second campaign meeting to rally support for her bid for UPUA President.

Quinn, accompanied by VP candidate Gina Feghali, reiterated much of what was covered at her campaign kick-off last week. “We are the most student-centered ticket,” Quinn said. “That is our focus.”

Their platform is outlined on the campaign website, but the candidates mentioned several of their key positions. In particular, Quinn focused on “The Stupid Drink” program, which promotes non-abstinence alcohol-related education using social media and other non-conventional teaching techniques. A similar program has seen success at Syracuse University, and as Quinn put it, the program aims to “advise students not to have that stupid drink — the one between ‘I’m good’ and ‘Oops.'”

The ticket also promised to continue many current UPUA initiatives, including T.J. Bard’s six-points for change. “As a member of the executive board [as the current UPUA Press Secretary], I have a really great working with T.J.,” Quinn said. “I will continue to work with T.J. next year with six-points for change.”

Pink t-shirt distribution followed a recap of campaigning rules (Side note: It’s nonsense that you can’t wear a campaign t-shirt in the HUB. Even if you’re just walking through the HUB for class wearing a shirt, the candidates face a violation.). The first UPUA presidential debate is set for tonight at 8 p.m. in Alumni Hall.

Onward State will have live coverage of the UPUA debate tonight, as well as comprehensive profiles of all three presidential tickets as Election Day approaches on March 28.
