Shifting support

Letter to the Editor | Tuesday, February 10, 2009

Last night, the results of the election for student body president and vice president came in. Although we were not able to garner enough votes to win the election or enter a run off with another ticket, we thank those of you who took time out of your day to vote for us. Even though we did not win the presidency and vice presidency, we will continue to look out and support the interests of the student body and alumni here at Notre Dame. For those of you who do not yet know, there will be a run off election between the Schmidt-Weber ticket and the Burdick-Sanchez ticket. Because of the similar concerns and platforms, we write this letter to endorse the latter campaign. Thank you to those of you who voted for us, but now we ask that you cast your ballot once more in favor of Laura Burdick and Derek Sanchez. We feel that as president and vice president, these two students will advocate on behalf of students and bring about the necessary improvements that actually matter and affect the student body. For that reason, we offer our endorsement to the Burdick-Sanchez ticket. Thank you again for voting.
