only one seat to independent candi-
dates in each of the student govern-
DAAP, the other major party
involved in the election, won five
seats on the assembly but was
unable to defeat MAP in any of the
races in which the two parties went
"I guess Zack Yost just knew a
couple more people than I did,"
DAAP presidential candidate Mari-
cruz Lopez said.
DAAP's presidential ticket of
Lopez and Sarah Barnard garnered
500 more votes than DAAP's ticket
last year. Lopez and Barnard won
25 percent of the vote - compared
with about 5 percent last year.
Although that increase may be
the result of DAAP's status as the
only opposition party in the elec-
tion, Lopez said she was optimistic
about her party's future in the after-
math of the passage of November's
affirmative action ban.
"I just think that this campus is a
lot more politicized because of the
events of the last year," Lopez said.
One of the independent candi-
dates who won, LSA junior Tim
Hull, took the fourth highest
weighted vote total for an LSA seat
in MSA - despite receiving only
the 12th highest raw vote count.
This means that while Hull may
have received less votes than the
other winning candidates, those
that did vote for him rated him
very highly on the 1 through 10
Hull attributed his victory to a
desire for a different voice in a can-
didate field that featured only two
parties: the powerful MAP and the
radical Defend Affirmative Action
"I'm a distinct, unique voice on
the Assembly," Hull said. "The one
concern I've had is that MSA is kind
of homogeneous. There's one type
of person on MSA."
Yost said he was prepared to
tackle the perceptions of sameness
and slow-moving bureaucracy that
have characterized MSA.
The first part of his - and MAP's
-new plan is the creation of an MSA
internship program. This would
bring young students and incoming
freshmen into a development pro-
gram familiarizing students with
the way that student government
works at the University.
The plan is the brainchild of a
reorganization committee estab-
lished in January to battle the
web of bureaucracy that can slow
the assembly to a halt. The idea is
to scale back the number of com-
mittees and create a more vertical
chain of command that leads to the
"There's too much information
to communicate back and forth,"
Yost said. "The system we have
now doesn't work as well as it
Along with the new infrastruc-
ture, the new guard of MSA plans to
focus on the new leasing ordinance
that pushed back the lease-signing
date this year, he said.
MSA members will meet with
the City Council Wednesday to
evaluate the ordinance and address
issues like the loophole that allows
residents to sign waivers that place
their houses on the market before
the appropriate period has expired,
Reisinger said his goals focus on
the continuation of the programs
already put in place, like a revital-
ization and expansion of the study
abroad program to include more
places and to accept transfer cred-
its from more programs.
"It's probably one of the most
complained about programs at the
University to us," Reisinger said.
Although he was accused of
crashing a rival party's website
in last year's presidential elec-
tion, Tony Vuljaj, the MAP can-
didate for the Business School
MSA seat, defeated DAAP oppo-
nent Sarina Shah with 135 votes
to Shah's 79.

every hour in preparation for a final,
14-minute long dance. Aside from
that, music is constantly playing but
dancing is optional. Participants are
required to stand - but not dance
- for the whole 30 hours.
There are constant games, sports
and arts and crafts to pass the time.
Participants also have access to
computers, study tables and snacks.
Even though Dance Marathon
doesn't require perpetual dancing,
there is aban on caffeine.Sodas,ener-
gy drinks and coffee are prohibited.
"We don't want people crashing
from it," said LSA senior Ashley
Borre, who sat on the Dance Mara-
thon steering committee.
"I'm doing well now, but there
was a half hour period when I was
crashing," said LSA junior Shannon
Riley around noon yesterday, the
event's 26thhour. Riley, who stayed
awake by playing cards, was par-
ticularly moved by the singing of
12-year-old Logan Shayna.
Riley said Shayna's rendition of
"Aint No Stopping Is Now" made
Monday, March 26, 2007 - 7A
Shayna was one of many children
and families who had benefited from
the money raised at the event who
stopped by to thank the participants.
While organizers don't plan to
change the format of the event,
Dance Marathon External Direc-
tor Steve Crompton wants a more
diverse group of dancers.
"We want to expand to more
areas of campus and don't want to
limit ourselves to students looking
for a group to join," Crompton said.
Still, Dance Marathon hasn't
experienced any slowdown in
people who want to participate
- so much so that the marathon
may be approaching its capacity.
Borre spoke of a potential lottery to
choose participants in the future.

many people in one room," she said.
"We want to take as many people as
we can. It's just aspace issue."
She said students may have to
raise more than the $250 now
required in order to increase their
odds of participating in the mara-
