record turnout for LSA-SG is due pri-
marily to the dedicated campaigning of
candidates. "I think that those of us in
LSA-SG who have campaigned have
campaigned very hard," she said.
In addition to being approached
directly by more candidates, many stu-
dents have realized what LSA-SG is and
what it can do from the government's
involvement in projects like a survey on
the consistency of graduate student
instructors and the "Stop the Hate" cam-
paign, Tronstein said.
Such exposure in turn influenced the
vote total, LSA-SG presidential candi-
date Gwen Arnold said, because "just
the fact that our name is out there more
means more people will vote."
Tronstein said the record turnout will
force the election winners to focus on
student issues and collect student feed-
back for LSA-SG projects, many of
which advocate reform of academic pro-
grams in the College of Literature, Sci-
ence and Arts.
MSA also enjoyed a high voter
turnout this election. The 6,858 ballots
received surpass last year's number by
77 and was the second highest total ever,
behind the election record of 7,840, set
in the Winter 2000 elections.
In addition to the hours spent by can-
didates campaigning and urging people
to vote, the high voter turnout may be
due to the fact that three of the eight
executive officer candidates - Students
First candidates Sarah Boot and Dana
Glassel, and independent presidential
candidate Matt Stone - are members of
fraternities or sororities.
Panhellenic Association President
Monica Rose said all Greek community
members are highly encouraged to vote
by their chapters, but candidates in the
Greek system have the advantage of
being able to mobilize large numbers of
"They have friends and contacts in
a lot of the chapters. They did a great
job promoting their individual par-
ties," Rose said. "You've got a really
good base of people to go to for votes.
When you're really active in the
Greek community, your name's
already out there."
Barring any difficulties with the
online voting Website, unofficial results
announcing the winners of each election
will be e-mailed to candidates today at
noon, and these results will be con-
firmed by midnight on Sunday.

is still setting the amount it wants to

The agreement was reached after
several colleges suggested that their
tuition increases would be especial-
ly high this year if they saw cuts in
their state appropriations.

even threatened a 28 percent
This agreement was made in

When state revenue projections
were revised last year, in light of
the downturn in the economy, there
was a fear among legislators that
education funding would be cut.
Most state departments, with the
exception of higher education and
K-12 education, saw cuts.
Julie Peterson, the University's
spokeswoman, praised those
involved for not cutting the Univer-
"In a normal year, we'd be dis-
mayed to not be getting an increase,
but we understand the tough budget
outlook that's facing the state," she
said. "But in real terms," she added,
"it's a loss to the University because
our costs go up."

Posthumus also lamented the fact that
this year the Legislature was not able to
give higher education institutions an
increase in appropriations, but he said
he credits the 55 percent increase they
have received from the state in the last
10 years as helping to keep tuition lower
than it would have been.
He favors language in the appropria-
tions process which penalizes universi-
ties for raising tuition more than they
should with cuts in their funding.
"Everybody else has to control their
budget. So do the universities."
Touching on the subject of those
who are uninsured for health care,
Posthumus' solutions are to first,
increase the number of Michiganders
employed, and second, to provide
incentives to small business to offer
their employees health insurance.
"A lot of the uninsured are employ-
ees of very, very small businesses."
Posthumus got his first experience in
politics managing Engler's first cam-
paign for the state House of Representa-
tive and has followed him up the
political ladder ever since. But Posthu-
mus isn't afraid to acknowledge that,
being conservatives, they agree on most
policy questions, though his approach
to governing is slightly different.
"My priorities are going to be differ-
ent from Governor Engler's in part
because Michigan is different. In the
1990s, this state was in deep economic
trouble." Now, he said, the state is
weathering the national economic
recession relatively well.
"I believe in building a consensus,"
he added. "I'm a unifier. I set a vision
of where we need to go and then bring
people together to accomplish it"
Although many of the other candi-
dates favor a restructuring of state
departments, such as merging the
departments of Environmental Quali-
ty and Natural Resources or splitting
the Department of Community
Health into separate departments
concerning public health and mental,
Posthumus is holding off on any
promises to restructure.
"You shouldn't lay out a bureaucrat-
ic structure and fix your vision and
policies around it," he said. "A leader
should lay out a vision of where he or
she is going to take Michigan, lay out
the policies they are going to put in
place and, based on that, then develop
a structure around that."
"I'm not wedded to any present
structure, nor am I wedded to any
He also promises to direct extra
resources to early childhood develop-
ment and reading initiatives and to
help impoverished communities
improve their sewer infrastructure,
which he outlines in his "Marshall
Plan for Water."
His opponent for the Republican
nomination is state Sen. John Schwarz
of Battle Creek. Seeking the Democ-
ratic nomination are former Gov.
James Blanchard, U.S. Rep. David
Bonior of Mt. Clemens, state Attorney
General Jennifer Granholm and state
Sen. Alma Wheeler Smith of Salem
Township. The Democratic and
Republican primaries will be held
Aug. 6, and the general election will
be held Nov. 5.
