UPUA Holding Executive Ticket Town Hall Thursday

Update Thurs., March 21: The Executive Town Hall event has been postponed to 8 p.m. “out of respect for Ocaze Ocagie and to accommodate those who would like to attend the vigil in his memory.” Ocagie was shot and killed by police Wednesday as officers attempted to serve him a mental health warrant. The vigil in his memory will begin at 7 p.m. at the Allen Street Gates.

Original story: We’re well into the University Park Undergraduate Association’s annual election season, and the next event on the docket is the Executive Ticket Town Hall. The event, which replaces the debate that would be held with more than one ticket running, will be held at 7 p.m. Thursday, March 21 in 302 HUB.

The sole executive ticket this year consists of presidential hopeful Laura McKinney, who’s the current vice president of UPUA, and her running mate Jake Griggs, who is the current UPUA chair of governmental affairs.

The pair has said that while they would favor a competitive election, they’re focused now on hearing student opinions and developing the best possible platform to work on during their terms.

Questions will come from the audience during the Town Hall, as well as from submissions via Twitter.

UPUA Election Day is Wednesday, March 27. The polls will be open from 7 a.m. to 10 p.m., and students can vote online.
