Student Association Sen. Nick Polk (U-at-Large), chair of the rules committee, announced Sunday evening that he will run for SA president.
Polk, a sophomore, said if elected, he will make the SA an open and transparent organization.
“I have always worked to ensure that the SA is an organization that supports all students and student organizations, advocates on their behalf, and is a body that strives to be open, transparent, and seeks to inform the student body about everything it does,” said Polk in an email to members of the campus media. “It is with this same attitude that I plan to approach my campaign and hopefully, my presidency.”
In an interview with The Hatchet, Polk said if elected he will work on smaller, more tangible goals.
“Just looking back at the past couple of years there are so many plausible goals that have made GW better,” said Polk. “GW Reads, 4-RIDE improvements, Colonials Invasion, mandatory spending roll over. Anybody who tells you they know how to reduce mandatory spending is lying, believe me I’ve tried.”
Candidate registration begins Monday morning.
