MSA
Continued from page 1
personal views, Paul said S4M is con-
tinuously "working to improve life
on campus for all students." Recent
party accomplishments include the
sponsorship of last week's Ludacris
concert and a new student group out-
reach campaign aimed at strength-
ening the relationship between MSA
and other student groups. Issues
that S4M is continuing to advocate
include the improvement of North
Campus transportation efficiency
and the ability to use Entree Plus in
Angell Hall.
S4M is running a full slate for
LSA-SG elections and has candi-
dates running for all but one of the
open MSA slots.
DAAP has not slated any candi-
dates for LSA-SG but has chosen to
focus exclusively on MSA elections.
DAAP's civil rights-based platform
is focused on defending affirmative
action and combating racism and
sexism.
Rackham student and DAAP
member Katie Stenvig said the
party is also campaigning to "stop
the racist fraud" of the Michigan
Civil Rights Initiative, which has
been accused of obtaining sig-
natures for a ballot measure that
would ban affirmative action in the

state under false pretences.
Stenvig cited the passage of an
MSA resolution supporting the
state Board of Canvassers' right to
investigate whether MCRI's sig-
natures are legitimate and MSA's
actions in support of the Lectur-
ers' Employee Organization and the
Graduate Employees Organization
as two of her party's most notable
achievements.
Collin McGlashen, a Rackham stu-
dent and director of MSA elections,
isn't projecting a "historically high
turnout for this election" but said it
is hard to make projections because
of irregularities in past elections.
This lack of consistency was seen
in this year's spring elections, when
the number of voters dropped from
2,153 in last year's fall elections to
only 1,367.
McGlashen acknowledged that
this fall's elections seem less visi-
ble, with little competition between
the two main parties and less pub-
licity than has been seen in previ-
ous years.
McGlashen said the assembly is
publicizing elections as much as it
has in the past by sending out mass
e-mails to students and giving notice
in local publications.
But he added that "advertising is
usually done by candidates them-
selves. There is only so much (MSA)
can do."

TICKETS
Continued from page 1
distributed free to students
based on credit hours and the
number of years they had held
season tickets.
This year, Bodnar sent out an
e-mail announcing there would
be no donation and that all stu-
dents, including those seated in
the bleachers, would have to pay
for their tickets.
The Athletic Department
expected the negative effect
the withdrawal of the donation
would have on sales, Bodnar
said.
Although Education senior
Dave Stuart, president of the
student fan group Maize Rage,
said he was disappointed that
the donation was withdrawn, he
said limiting season tickets to
students who pay for them will
create a better fan environment.
"Honestly, it's important to
get the real fans here ... to get
the people who really want to
be here in Crisler," Stuart said.
"We really want those who bleed
maize and blue to be sitting on
this wood."
The high expectations at the
beginning of last season, cou-
pled with the poor results that

"To me, it's just not worth spending
($130) on a team like that when
the games aren't exciting."

- Eric Meer
LSA sophomore

followed, may also have played
a role in lower ticket sales.
Coming off an NIT win in the
2003-04 season, Michigan lost
two starters for the majority of
the season. Guard Lester Abram
was out with an injury, while
guard Daniel Horton missed
time due to an injury and a sus-
pension. The team finished with
a 13-18 overall record, going
just 4-12 in the Big Ten. The
Wolverines closed the year by
losing 13 of their last 14 games.
"To me, it's just not worth
spending ($130) on a team like
that when the games aren't
exciting," said LSA sophomore
Eric Meer, who didn't renew his
tickets this season.
Meer added that weekday
games are inconvenient to attend,
pointing to the Friday- and Sat-
urday-night model of hockey as
a more student-friendly system.

Last year, Michigan hosted nine
games and will play eight games
at home this season.
Michigan coach Tommy
Amaker said he was unaware of
the sharp decline in sales and
said he hopes his team's per-
formance this season will draw
fans to Crisler.
"If we can create a buzz with
what we're doing and how we're
playing, hopefully we can get off
to a good start," Amaker said.
"Now, we have to do a little bit
of our job on the court to make
(fans) want to be a part of it,
and I'm sure they will once we
get things going in the direction
that we think we will to start
this year off," he added.
Season tickets can no longer
be purchased. Single-game tick-
ets, as well as Big Ten packages,
can be bought at www.mgoblue.

DETROIT
Continued from page 1
support Hendrix because of his visit to the
University and the efforts of his daughter to
campaign on his behalf.
Anderson- said Hendrix's efforts in appeal-
ing to students are more impressive than
Kilpatrick's age. She said she was impressed
with Hendrix's founding of Next Generation
Detroit, a group that involves young people in
the rebuilding of the city.
"He speaks directly toward the need of
improvements for Detroit and what part the
youth will play in that," Anderson said.
Carter also said Hendrix made a strong
impression on her when she met him during
his University visit earlier this year. She said
she will be supporting Hendrix in today's
election.
LSA junior Jawuan Miguel Meeks said he
will vote for Kilpatrick today. He said the
media coverage of the current mayor has been
too focused on his downfalls and has not
given him credit for his goals and accomplish-
ments.
"I don't believe in changing horses in the
middle of a stream, and I don't think Kilpat-
rick has had enough time to accomplish what
he has set out to do," Meeks said. "I am will-
ing to give him four more years to realize
this."
Education junior Matthew Gillery will also
be voting in,.Detroit today. He said he sup-
ports Hendrix because of the candidate's role
as a deputy mayor under former Mayor Den-
nis Archer.
He added that Kilpatrick's emphasis on
housing for the poor will not help to rebuild
the city but that Hendrix will focus on bring-
ing new business to Detroit.
"It's time for us to have a leadership that's
going to look forward and look at innovative
ways of bringing business to Detroit," Gillery
said.
Students can find information on their poll-
ing sites at www.detroitvoter.info.

CITY
Continued from page 1
that could have a significant impact on
students in Ann Arbor and voting for one
candidate or the other could determine the
future direction of these issues.
For instance, many candidates have

expressed uncertainty about a housing
ordinance proposed by the mayor that
aims to control the housing rush that
usually takes place in early fall when
students try to lease the most desirable
properties.
In its current draft, the ordinance puts
limits on landlords and requires them to
wait a certain amount of time before show-

ing and leasing property.
Among the candidates running in today's
elections, Stephen Rapundalo (D-Ward 2)
has been one that has expressed support for
an ordinance that would try to buy students
more time when signing a lease.
Another issue of concern to students is
the newly created committee composed
of two Council members appointed by

the mayor and five student representa-
tives appointed by the Michigan Student
Assembly.
The committee was formed in hopes of
improving communication between stu-
dents and the Council.
Both Rapundalo and Leigh Greden (D-
Ward 3) have been the most vocal about
their support for the committee.
