STALL NGS
Continued from page 1A
to the assembly," said Walter
Nowinski, Michigan Progres-
sive Party vice presidential
candidate. "She rarely says
anything of substance during
her officer reports and she has
a habit of abstaining on most
roll-call votes.:
He said Stallings's ability to
lead has been undermined by
Levine on several occasions.
Levine has asked MSA Gen-
eral Counsel Russ Garber, not
Stallings, to lead at least one
meeting in his absence. Levine,
though, has also passed the
gavel to Stallings.
But S4M party chair Rob-
bie O'Brien was quick to come
to Stallings's defense, saying
doubts of her leadership abili-
ties are "absolutely ludicrous."
As proof, O'Brien rattled
off a list of her achievements,
including her work to improve
campus safety and her empha-
sis on MSA student outreach.
While Levine attests that

Stallings was qualified to suc-
ceed Benavides because of her
work on the budget commit-
tee, Stallings had no student
government experience prior
to her sophomore year - not
even in high school.
To focus on her late start
with the assembly is to ignore
the work she's put in since this
fall, she said.
Stallings noted her "Diag
Day" event this past fall to
introduce herself, MSA and
its resources to University
students. She added that her
biggest goal this past year has
been student outreach.
O'Brien and Levine have
more to say about Stallings's
accomplishments than she
does. O'Brien talked about
Stallings's involvement with
MSA's housing website and
her work promoting an ordi-
nance to push back lease dates
that the City Council is voting
on tonight.
Stallings is vague about her
agenda if she becomes presi-
dent - she offers ideas but

avoids specifics.
O'Brien said with the state-
wide vote on November's ballot
initiative to ban some affirma-
tive action programs in Michi-
gan, it would make a statement
if the student body president at
the most prominent university
in the state is a black female.
Stallings said that despite
her belief that the race and
gender of the MSA president
should not be a factor, her
identity would make groups
feel less excluded from and
better represented by MSA.
Outside of MSA, Stallings
busies herself with her pre-law
fraternity and is involved in the
campus chapter of the NAACP
and Black Student Union.
While it looks like she's
got it all together, Stallings
and S4M will face a tough
challenge from MPP and the
two other groups during this
week's MSA elections. Some
say Stallings is the prettiest
face in S4M, but it looks like
the election could be an ugly
fight.

FOX
Continued from page 1A
articulate politician. Her answers are well-prepared
as she strongly emphasizes a need for change in
MSA and sticks by the MPP platform - some-
thing she says her main opponents, Students 4
Michigan, lack.
Fox has not always opposed S4M; she used to be
one of its representatives. Back when the party first
started, Fox was a prominent member of S4M's
progressive wing. Then, she offered to jump ship
when she heard that Nowinski had started MPP.
"Since being with Students 4 Michigan, I've
really liked a lot of the things that Wally (Nowin-
ski) has been about, and I really like the idea of
having a platform. I like the idea of accountability,"
Fox said, explaining why she switched to MPP.
Nowinski jumped in to finish answering the

question. During their joint interview, he interject-
ed often. The pair answered questions like an old
married couple recounting their first date.
"I co-founded the party in November or Decem-
ber just kind of on the feeling that MSA parties, they
should be parties and have a platform," Nowinski
said.
So far, MPP has voiced objections to MSA's
alleged mishandling of November's Ludacris con-
cert. The progressive party's campaign includes
promises of cheaper textbooks and improved hous-
ing.
However, S4M's vice presidential nominee, Jus-
tin Paul, has other theories about Fox's defection.
"She didn't like the inclusiveness and demo-
cratic style of Students 4 Michigan," he said. "She
decided to do what she has done the entire time on
MSA, which is to create a way to support her own
agenda"

Paul said one of Fox's faults is that she comes to
the assembly with a predefined agenda.
"With (MPP), she has found her ultimate source
of support by filling the slate with people that fol-
low her ideology," he said.
Fox clearly has specific goals.
"We plan on being the Michigan Progressive
Party not just in March and not just in November,
when the elections are going on," said Fox. "We
plan on sitting down with our candidates and say-
ing this is the progress we've made on our platform,
this is how we're doing in our timeline, this is how
we can be doing better, this is what we're doing
great right now ... making sure everyone knows
their resources."
Nowinski said Fox is one of a small number of
assembly members who shoulder most of the work-
load. He said she is one of about 10 students on the
assembly who "do about 80 percent of the work:'

DEBATE
Continued from page 1A
campus" she responded.
Fox again voiced concerns
about S4M's lack of party stances,
saying MPP would use "clear goals
for clear results."
Fantuzzi shocked the crowd
three times during the debate.
First, he admitted to not being

familiar with the Statement of
Student Rights and Responsibili-
ties, the document that acts as a
the code of conduct for University
students. This elicited a series of
whispers throughout the crowd,
which was mostly made up of the
respective parties.
The document, commonly
known as the Code, is controver-
sial amoung those in student gov-

ernment because some see it as
dangerous tp students' rights.
Next. SCP candidate quoted for-
mer President Ronald Reagan amidst
groans and disdainful chuckles.
His final comment won Fantuzzi
a positive crowd reaction when he
pointed to the other three parties
in the debate and said, "There's a
choice between a party with radi-
cal ideas (motioning to DAAP), a

party with bad ideas (motioning
to MPP) and a party with no ideas
(motioning to S4M)."
The crowd erupted with laughter.
The debates were co-sponsored by
The Michigan Daily and Wolv-TV.
Due to a technical glitch, the
debate will not be broadcast on
television. However, podcasts of
the debate are available at www.
