president alongside Business
senior Michael Proppe, current
Shokar was elected as an
LSA representative for CSG at
the end of her freshman year,
and was elected vice speaker
at the beginning of this year. In
December, she transitioned to
her current role as speaker of the
Dishell and Shokar come
from different backgrounds, a
strength of their partnership
that both candidates empha-
"We have two very different
social identities, and that's some-
thing really amazing that no
other platform has," Dishell said.
"Together, our party is diverse
in itself, and we represent more
of campus," Shokar added.
Both candidates also noted
how their differences have
helped them in their decision-
making over this past year in
"We encourage each other to
think differently and challenge
each other," Shokar said.
"We always consult each
other before making decisions,
and that's something that's been
really great," Dishell added.
Dishell pointed to the estab-
lishment of the Night Owl bus
route and model for student
input build during the search for
the University's next president
as just a few of this year's suc-
cesses of CSG.
He added that their expe-
riences as CSG leaders place
Make Michigan at an advantage
moving forward with future
initiatives. They have already
established relationships with
various administrators and
departments, a process Dishell
said usually takes a few months.
"We really want to build on
the relationships we've made,"
he said. "We want to move on
from that to accomplish even
more next year, already having
those relationships in place."
One of those relationships
that Dishell and Shokar want
to build on is CSG cooperation
with the Athletic Department
policies for both football and
basketball. They said they want
to work on developing an
improved reserved seating sys-
tem for football - a result of
negative student responses to
the new general admission seat-
ing policy. They also discussed a
proposal to have a student ticket
exchange phone application for
Shokar ran last year as a can-
didate with FORUM, an oppos-
ing party in this year's election,
but has since shifted to Make
Michigan. She said that her deci-
sion was based on Make Michi-
gan's platform, not politics.
"It's not really so much a
switch. It's more that I joined
Make Michigan because it has
the platform of ideals that I
believe that Michigan really
values," Shokar said. "It's about
what I want to work on, and how
I want to go about making the
changes I want to see on cam-
The platform Shokar spoke
about includes Make Michigan's
"five pillars": student-focused,
healthy, safe, diverse and inno-
One of the initiatives that
align with their "healthy" pil-
lar that Dishell and Shokar
addressed was a program that
focuses on the mental health of
"Mental health is something
that's really overlooked here,"
Dishell said. "It's time we come
together as a community through
a peer support network."
Make Michigan proposes
peer groups of 12 to 20 students
that will meet on a weekly basis.
Senior leaders who are Counsel-
ing and Psychological Services
and the Program on Intergroup
Relations trained for counseling
would run the groups. Dishell
said he hopes if instituted, the
program will set a standard for
other colleges across the nation.
"Not everyone has an amaz-
ing day every day, and there are
definitely times we all can think
of when we would have liked to
have a network of our peers that
we could go to where we didn't
feel awkward because there was
a staff member in the room, or
we weren't embarrassed about
what was going on," he said.
Regarding Make Michigan's
"diversity" pillar, Dishell said
he hopes to increase coop-
eration between CSG and the
LEAD (Leadership, Excellence,
Achievement, Diversity) Schol-
ars Program run by the Alumni
Center, a program that grants
merit-based scholarships to
diverse students who exhibit the
qualities listed in its name. He
said he hopes to work with the
program to increase minority
Moving forward in the cam-
paign, Shokar said that keeping
voters informed of their experi-
ence and accomplishments over
the past year in CSG is key.
"Having a conversation is
important, but taking actiononit
and really making the difference
on that item is really what we're
about," Dishell added.

"There is no greater privilege
than a life spent in service, and I
know how fortunate I have been
to spend my life as a Member of
Congress," he said. "I have done
my best for the people who live
here - my neighbors, my friends,
those who supported me and
those who didn't."
Dingell added that his health
was not a factor in his decision
and cited disillusionment with
Congress in general as his main
decision to step down.
"This Congress has been a
great disappointment to every-
one, members, media, citizens
and our country," Dingell said.
"Little has been done in this Con-
gress, with 57 bills passed into
law. This is not Heinz packaged

On Monday, legislators around
the state and nation, including
President Barack Obama, Vice
President Joe Biden and Sen. Carl
Levin (D-Mich.) responded to
Biden, who has worked closely
with Dingell during the 2009
auto-industry bailout, expressed
his high regard for the most
senior member of Congress. He
lauded Dingell's deep respect and
care for his constituents and fel-
low members in Congress, as well
as his advocacy for legislation
that has helped make the United
States a more "just, fair and free
"John has always been more
than Mr. Chairman to me," Biden
said. "He's been Dean, the longest
serving Member of Congress and
one of the most effective in our
history. There's never been a col-
league I've admired more."
In January, Biden praised
Dingell's work and passion for the
auto-industry in his address at
the Detroit Auto Show.
Levin commended Dingell for
his determination and generosity
toward Michigan residents, add-
ing that he has known no better
person in government during his
tenure in office.
"Everyone who cares about
Michigan has benefitted from his
tireless advocacy for our state,"
State Rep. Jeff Irwin (D-Ann
Arbor) noted how recent disunity
and bickering in Congress added
his input as to why the Congress-
man decided to retire. He said
money corrupts the original prin-
ciples Congress held at the start
of Dingell's career.
"What has happened in Ameri-
can politics is that money, partic-
ularly big money from corporate
interests, have come to so domi-
nate political discourse that there
isn't a lot of room left for elected
officials in Congress to come
together and work out difficult
issues," Irwin said.
LSA senior Meg Scribner, chair
of the College Democrats, spoke
to Dingell's status as a prominent
Michigan political figure.
"Congressman Dingell is going
to have a great legacy, not just for
the number of years he served,
but for the legislation he was
involved in," Scribner said. "His
accomplishments, the Endan-
gered Species Act and Affordable
Care Act among them, will con-
tinue to impact Americans long
after he leaves office."
Scribner said she could under-
stand Dingell's frustration at the
sense of partisan gridlock that
he cited in his announcement
as impeding social and political
Though she could not specu-
late about his retirement plans,
Scribner said she's sure Dingell's
presence will be missed on the
Capitol Hill, and that he'll always
be involved with Michigan poli-

leads to Wolverine
win over MSU
By DANIEL FELDMAN
Daily Sports Writer
With seven minutes left in
the first half of Sunday's Michi-
gan men's basketball game, Zak
Irvin streaked down the court
with ball in his hands. Instead of
pulling up from behind the arc,
the freshman guard drove to the
Climbing in the air toward the
hoop, the swingman unleashed
a dunk - a rarity for the 3-point
marksman. As the Wolverines
began to claw back from an
11-point deficit in their eventual
79-70 win, one thing became
apparent in that fast break:
Michigan was ready to run,
whether Michigan State liked it
Outscoring the Spartans 14-0
off turnovers, it didn't matter
that Michigan State outscored
the Wolverines in the paint
thanks to 54-percent shooting
from the field.
"I think (turnovers were) the
difference in the game," said
Michigan State coach Tom Izzo.
"They got turnovers. They got
touchdowns and layups, and we
Committing just three turn-
overs, compared to 13 by Michi-
gan State, Michigan didn't just
outscore the Spartans - the
Wolverines outwore them.
After a 21-4 run spanning
more than seven minutes in the
second half, Michigan reached
its biggest lead of the game. With
Michigan State players bent over
in exhaustion, the 16th-ranked
Wolverines (11-3 Big Ten, 19-7
overall) made up for a slow start.
"I could see a couple of their
players bending over," said soph-
omore guard Glenn Robinson II.
"I told our guys this is what we
train for. Some of our guys have
been here the whole summer.
This is our moment. I thought we
did a great job of responding to
that and I thought we had alot of
Though it's easy to look at the
calendar and note that Michigan
had a week off between games
and Michigan State had a late
game Thursday at Purdue, that
wasn't necessarily how the Wol-
"I don't know if that's an
excuse," said fifth-year senior
forward Jordan Morgan. "We
played five games in 13 days -
everybody goes through that.
I think it was our energy more
than anything. We had it all
game long. I think that may have
made it overwhelming.
"I don't know if it was neces-
sarily that we outlasted them. I
just think our energy level kept
everybody encouraged (and)
Extra rest or not, Robinson
made sure that his teammates,
and more specifically Morgan,
saw what was happening to the
"A couple of us noticed (their
fatigue)," Robinson said. "I told
Jordan (Morgan) to run the floor.
Even if he doesn't get the ball,
we'll have spot-up jump shots."
That was the case in Michi-
gan's second-half run to open
up the game. In the 21-4 run, 14
points came on open jumpers -
with four more coming on shots
at the basket - by sophomore
guards Nik Stauskas and Caris
Forward Adreian Payne
remained in the game the entire
duration, with the exception of
the initial Stauskas 3-pointer,
and Michigan took advantage
of the Spartans' best big man
playing his sixth game back
since missing seven because of
a sprained foot. Though Payne
posted a double-double, it was
clear he wasn't near the force he
has come to be known as over
his four-year career at Michigan
"He looked just dead to me,"
Izzo said of Payne. "I mean, a
couple times we wanted to get
him out, but we didn't want to
use a timeout. ... The poor kid,
I thought that was part of it. I
think he's not used to taking over
the team like a month ago."
Though Izzo was willing to
acquit Payne and guard Keith
Appling's fatigue due to linger-
ing injuries, the same couldn't
be said for the rest of the Spartan
With the Wolverines control-
ling their destiny for the Big
Ten regular-season title, Michi-
gan needs to have a repeat per-
formance of Sunday to keep its
stronghold of first place.
