with optimism. LSA Rep. Kym
Stewart resigned from the assembly
because she said she wasn't comfort-
able with the direction MSA is head-
I think this will be a rebuilding
year for MSA. They will be rebuild-
ing internally and I am more into the
external aspects," Stewart said.
"The restructuring will be great
because the new people will not be
stuck in a set process and they can
question things," she added.
LSA Rep. Shari Katz, chairwoman
of the Voice Your Vote Commission,
said with so much change in leader-
ship the assembly will have to work
even harder this year to get every-
"A lot of the leadership is graduat-
ing from the assembly, but a lot of
excited new people have come in. It
will be a challenge for the current
leaders to continue the standards of
the previous representatives," Katz
"Hideki is trying really hard, but it
will take time for him to learn every-
thing. The entire assembly needs to
unite to accomplish our goals," she
Assembly Treasurer Siafa Rage
said he is confident the assembly
will continue to do well.
"I think this new assembly will
work efficiently. There should be
less confrontation on the assembly
than there was when Bram was run-
ning things, because Hideki doesn't
have affiliations with any of the
organizations that Bram was criti-
cized for," Hage said.
Vice President Jim Secreto said he
believes Tsutsumi will be an effec-
tive president, especially when it
comes to reaching out to students.
"I admit it will be a very large
challenge to continue the success of
MSA and achieve his platform, but
because of the dedication he has
shown through his campaigning,
MSA will succeed," Secreto said.
Tsutsumi said he hopes the assem-
bly will be able to work with him to
accomplish his agenda.
"I'd like to get them all to be
behind my platform, that's what is
most important for me. I'm going to
do my best to get them to help me,"
This summer, Tsutsumi plans to
spend time taking classes, running
the summer MSA meetings and
meeting incoming freshmen during
"I want to speak to the freshmen
so all students will know me in the
fall," he said.
"I want to talk to them because
they don't know anything yet. I
want them to know that the student
government does stuff," Tsutsumi
Once classes begin in the fall,
Matt Nolan, communications chair-
man, said MSA will be doing many
different things to try and get stu-
"We'll have big things happening
at Festifall, and the Voice Your Vote
Commission will be really active try-
ing to get students to register to
vote," Nolan said.
Nolan said it is important for
freshman to get involved early on
because there is a. "higher likeliness
they'll stay involved."
But Tsutsumi said he wants every-
body to be interested in joining
"I don't just want to talk to fresh-
man," Tsutsumi said. "It's important
for anybody to get involved."
