ATLANTA (AP) - Republican

junior Courtney Ratkowiak was
appointed managing editor. She is
currently a senior sports editor.
Ratkowiak said she looks for-

increase the Daily's online cover-
age and accessibility.
"By the end of next semester,
we hope to have the new website
up and start targeting students
more," she said.
Ratkowiak said she also hopes
to improve internal matters like
training new writers.
Business School sophomore
Jacob Smilovitz, who was elected
managing news editor, said he
wants to make the paper's cover-
age connect with the student body
more than it currently does.
"We will make sure the Daily
covers the issues that affect the Uni-
versity's current students and future
graduates that give not only a sense
of a life in Ann Arbor, but also pre-
pare our readers for a life outside of
the campus community," he said.
McCain carried Georgia with
52 percent of the vote on Nov. 4.
Martin planned to campaign
with prominent Georgia Demo-
crats, including U.S. Rep. John
Lewis, as he soughtto rekindle the
strong showing by African Ameri-
can voters in the general election

Buckley, who drew 3.4 percent.

editor, was elected to lead the
LSA junior Andy Reid will
assume the role of managing
sports editor. Reid currently
serves as a senior sports editor.
Public Policy junior David Wat-
nick was elected managing arts
editor. Watnick is the current
music editor of the arts section.
Engineering junior Clif Reeder
and LSA junior Zachary Meisner
were elected co-managing photo
Reeder said he plans to add more
online content like slide shows to
make photos more accessible.
LSA sophomore Maureen Stych
and Angela Chih, a School of Art
and Design freshman, will serve
as co-managing design editors.
Other positions, including
the incoming magazine editor,
copy chief, online editor and
multimedia editor, have not
yet been finalized. Those spots
will be nominated by Graca and
appointed by the Daily's senior
