Listed below are statements from
candidates running in the campus-wide
Michigan Student Assembly elections,
held today and tomorrow. Candidates
were asked to give a statement as to why
theyare runningforthe assembly. Their
comments are in their own words.
Candidatesnotincludedinthispiece
were unavailable for comment.
Independents
Craig Greenberg, LSA: Currently
the Michigan campus is divided be-
tween many different types of students.
The MSA's politics adds to this divi-
sion. We need to change MSA and
make it more responsive to students'
needs so it can unite the student body
instead of further dividing it.
Mark Rabinowitz, LSA: One of
any major aims is to help end the student
apathy. One thing I've planned to do is
hold open conferences every month with
students.
Abdalmajid Katranji, LSA: My
main focus is to get a lot of the student
minority groups together and have a
more united campus. I'd like MSA to
fund these groups more and support
them more. I'd like everyone on cam-
pus to feel they have a vested interest in
the U of M community.
Adam Hebert, LSA: I'd like to
make MSA more responsive to stu-
dents' needs instead of the agendas of
the political parties that are in power
* ightnow. I'd also like to improve com-
xnunication so students know how
(heir money is being used and how it
benefits them.
- KamalNainani,Engineering: I'm
running to get more involved with the
university and to get the student body
Smore involved.
Lorne Gearhart, Rackham: I'm
running to raise the visibility of MSA
and to bring back some of the represen-
tativeness of MSA so we can have one
united student voice toward the admin-
istration. I'd like to have ways students
fan contact MSA reps. and make our-

selves more available to students.
Mark Chasteen, LSA: I think we
need to have an assembly that is more
active in representing student concerns.
One thing I would like to do is work
toward coordinating student organiza-
tions that wish to work against the code.
I'd like to get their views on the code
and possibly workout a strategy to fight
it effectively.
Edward Le Conteur, LSA: Uof M
may have a lot of problems, but I will try
to fix them from the inside out - no
face lifts.
Brian Kight,Engineering: I'd like
to see MSA continue to become more
responsible and professional when rep-
resenting student interests. I opposeany
attempts by the administration to im-
pose policies that violate student rights.
I am in favor of a fairer MSA funding
process and more money for student
organizations.
Henry Loh, Engineering: I stand
forgiving as much funds to engineers as
possible - and I oppose the MCC
funding.
Trooper Sanders, LSA: What
MSA needs to do is targeta few specific
goals in a specific time period and then
move on to other issues. If students saw
the efforts of MSA materialize then it
would seem to be more relevant to
them.
Lisa Silver, Music: We need some
kind of sexual harassment, sexual as-
sault and cheating code, but students
should be the ones to vote on the code.
We cannot have anything enacted with-
out the student vote.
Progressive Party
Erika Gottfried, LSA: I would
like to hear different perspectives in the
student government. I plan on doing
this by tabling in the fish bowl and
going to different student groups on
campus to see what their concerns are
and bring their concerns up in the as-
sembly.

FONTANA, Wis. (AP)-Leading
Republicans said yesterday the party
cannot afford a war over abortion ocr"
leadership in the wake of its presidential
defeat and urged a rebuilding effort
anchored on conservative fiscal poli-
cies buttolerantofdiffering social views.
As Republican governors played
host for an assessment of the 1992 elec-
tion and its impact on the party's future;°
outgoing Missouri Gov. John Ashcroft
inched closer to entering a crowded'
race for national party chair.
That contest was a major subplot of,
the Republican Governors Association
meeting on Wisconsin's Lake Geneva,.
the GOP's first gathering since Presi
dent Bush's loss two weeks ago. Everi
as they pledged to work with President-'
elect Clinton, the Republican gover-
nors and GOP congressional leaders
agreed to work together on a "loyal
opposition" agenda.
As they looked ahead to 1994 con;
gressional and gubernatorial elections,
the Republicans were given polling data
showing that voters view the GOP as
the status-quo party, see it as the "pro-
life"party on the issueofabortionrights
and by wide margins believe Demo-'
crats will do a better job addressing'
health care, education and the environ-
ment.
Several GOP governors have sug
gested that the harsh tone of thesummed
Republican convention and the party's
anti-abortion platform were major fa $
tors in Bush's defeat. With help from
Vice President Dan Quayle and Repult
lican congressional leaders who per;
sonally oppose abortion, the governoi
are trying to nudge the party toward;
more inclusive position on that issti
and a more moderate overall tone.
"It doesn't take a math wizard td
figure out that we're not going to wi't
many elections if we devote ourselve
to creating litmus tests for party mem*
bership,"said Senate Republican leadg
Bob Dole of Kansas. "The Republican
Party must be the party of the big tent.:
Ashcroft said the national party
should not try "to dictate how our cons
stituents should stand on any one issue'
and needs to "let our people tell the
national party where to stand, not then
reverse."
Another candidate for the part}
chair's post, GOP strategist Haley
Barbour of Mississippi, told the gover-+
nors, "We need our heads examined if
we let abortion be the threshold issue of
Republicanism. ... We are not going tc
cannibalize our party over any one is
sue."

Jeffrey Alexander, LSA: I'veread
and understand basic MSA issues and
problems and I want to have a voice in
what goes on. When there's only 8
percent student voter turnout, there is a
problem. I want to increase student
awareness.
Marteal Singleton, LSA: I think
there are a lot of issues that need to be
addressed. There are many great steps
that have been made such as changing
Columbus day to Indigenous Peoples'
Day, butMSA could become even more
of a student voice.
Mercedes Rubio, Rackham: MSA
has a negative image because certain
groups are not legitimized on campus. I
thought I could bring in a different
perspective because I am Mexican
American, so it's not just black and
white.
David Allison, Rackham: If I am
elected to MSA I will try to make sure
that people like Chief Daryl Gates are
not paid $10,000 in student tuition

money to come to the U-M and defend
their racist behavior.
Nancy Afr, Medicine: My goal if
elected would be to ensure adequate
health care for students. TAs and fel-
lowshipstudents. A second focus would
be campus safety, specifically working
with SAPAC and Safewalk.
Conservative Coalition
Mike Christie Jr., LSA: I feel the
MSAhasbecome too political. It's time
they stop their agenda for social reform
and return to encouraging productive
student activities on campus.
Ryan Boeskool, LSA: Seeing how
the Greek system is the largest group on
campus, I'd like to strengthen the ties
between MSA and the Interfraternity
Council and the Panhellenic Associa-
tion so when MSA finds a worthwile
goal these groups will be able to work
together.
Tracy Robinson, LSA: I think

MSA should take a more active role in
communicating with theadministration
about what students need to improve
their education here.
Jacob Stern, LSA: See Jacob run.
See Jacob win. Vote for Jacob.
Jeff Parker, Education: I would
like to have a lower MSA fee and fund-
ing for all student groups.
Mike Fagg, Rackham: MSA has
incredible potential to help students and
I would like to be there to realize this.
Tim Morales, LSA: I am running
because a lot of issues are being ig-
nored. They spend too much time on
issues that do not relate to students.
They focus on national issues like Co-
lumbus day instead of student issues.
Michael Lee, Medicine : I am
personally running for Medical School
Rep. to improve health issues. I want to
look into improving UHS.
