INDEPENDENTS RUN AS COALITION
IS: End lare party control in MSA

(EDITOR'S NOTE: This week the Daily
will publish a series of articles examining the
political parties, independent candidates, and
issues surrounding the April 8 and 9
Michigan Student Assembly General elec-
tions. These articles will focus primarily on
presidential and vice-presidential candidates
and ballot proposals for student con-
sideration.)
B y LISSA OLIVER
and MITCH STUART
The party running the largest slat of
candidates in the Michigan St jdent
Assembly elections is the same{ ne that
advocates the abolition of tpe current
system in which large parti s dominate
the Assembly's membersKip.
The Independent Stu ents (IS) party,

established this year, is a party that
isn't - at'least according to party
chairman Mark Lazare, who said, "The
only reason we decided to run as a
coalition is we all do have one thing in
commyon. We want to break up the party
sysem."
AS presidential candidate Bob Redko
added that the group is "using the
..ystem to tear the system apart." .t
ACCORDING TO Lazare, the group is
not a party in the traditional sense. "We
decided not to take a stance on any
issues, except preferential voting.
Basically, we want to give the indepen-
dent students a voice. (Under the
current system) the students aren't
being represented, the two parties

(which currently make up the majority
of the Assembly's membership) are
being represented and are bickering
back and forth."
IS members are opposed to preferen-
tial voting because most feel such a
voting system discriminates against
independent candidates. A referendum
on this year's ballot is intended to
measure voter preferences on whether
the system should be abandoned.
According to vice-presidential can-
didate Peggy O'Dell, IS believes MSA
should be concerned with both campus
issues and those with a wider impact.
"Lobbying on a state or federal level is
very important," she said, "but it
shouldn't take away from the campus

issues."
O'DELL SAID each IS candidate
represents a different segment of the
student population, and thus will have a
better chance of representing their con-
stituents than some other party can-
didates who she said are drawn from a
smaller cross-section of students..
Redko said, "We're going-to mobilize
a large portion of the student body that
has not been mobilized before."
Although there are only 11 available
representative seats for LSA, IS is run-
ning 18 candidates. Redko said IS cour-
ts some candidates who had tried to run
with another party, but had been
"rejected"' because the party already
had a full slate.

Redko said one of the major faults
with the current system is, "When
people aren't elected, they're closed out
of MSA."
Redko said he would solve this
problem by retaining f a list of can-
didates and inviting those who were not
elected to participate in committees or
in some other way.

questioned whether Adams, who has
overseen the development of the
project since last term, had fully
examined all funding possibilities.
Initially, Canale and Adams asked
Brinkerhoff to supply up to $15,000 in
University matching funds to renovate
the ,glassed-in juncture of Angell,
Mason, and Haven halls.
BRINKERHOFF agreed to this ex-
penditure on the condition that MSA
approve its portion of exactly one-half
of the projected cost. (The budget for
the project would be $20,000, but there
would be a ceiling of-"$30,000, Canale
said.)
Last week, the Assembly declined to
commit funds to the project, but did
resolve to support an unspecified
degree of renovation for the area.

No Fishbowl funds

Brinkerhoff said his refusal to fund
more than 50 per cent of the project was
based dn the fact that any renovation
would help support student program
ming in the Fishbowl, which he said
would make student funding ap-
propriate.
'The Assembly may be asked to vote
on the proposal next week, Adams said.
CANALE, commenting on the heated
discussion that took place on the Fish-
bowl issue at last week's MSA meeting,
said, "We have to limit the arguments
to the potential of the project and the
potential for the growth of MSA."
Adams said he would go to the
student architect coordinating the
Fishbowl design for more data to
present to MSA.

Adams said he will not abandon the
plan until he has "put up the biggest
fight possible."
