The staff editorial is the majority opinion of the editorial board of The Murray State News.
After speaking to the respective candidates running for the role of Student Government Association president, The Murray State News is endorsing Jeremiah Johnson.
No other candidate is as qualified or experienced. In a time of economic uncertainty, students need someone who knows how the system works. Johnson is proven in his willingness to stand up to the University on behalf of all students and by bringing as many voices to the table as possible. He has been ever watchful to make sure administrative policies do not steamroll students in the process of running this University.
After sitting down to talk with all the candidates we would like to thank them for their time and wish them luck on their efforts.
Dylan Gerlach’s ideas on saving energy and campus safety were original and positive. We especially liked his ideas on how to get the University more involved with the city.
Chase Brasher has the wonderful notion that students should have a place on city council in the future. The idea of SGA sponsoring voter drives were insightful and something this campus needs.
No matter the outcome of this election we want to see all three stay active in the SGA. All have something great they bring to the table and it would be a shame not to have them involved in campus life. We encourage all voters to make an educated, objective decision on who they think the best candidate is. As for us, we have made our choice.
