Candidates open up to students

The Associated Students of Linfield College General Election came one step closer to voting after a Q-and-A session for the candidates on March 5 in the Fred Meyer Lounge.

The official presidential candidate is junior Nic Miles who is a mass communication major.

The two vice president candidates are junior Susana Fajardo,  an anthropology major, and sophomore Jennifer Derke, philosophy major.

The Q-and-A session began with questions from ASLC Secretary Clara Martinez and Dan Fergueson, director of College Activities. They asked general questions to all three candidates concerning issues like safety on and off campus, diversity and getting international students more involved on campus, and their definitions and experience with leadership.

Next, the candidates were all asked specific questions pertaining to their applied positions. They had three minutes to answer and were to discuss topics like their goals, their anticipated challenges, and were asked to evaluate the current president and vice president.

The question and answer session concluded with questions from current ASLC President Rachel Coffey to Miles and questions from current ASLC Vice President, Bradley Keliinoi to Derke and Fajardo.

Voting for the ASLC General Election will be held online from 10 a.m. to 7 p.m. March 13. All students will receive an email with a link to the online ballot where votes will remain anonymous.

The results will be announced later that evening. Any questions regarding the voting process can be directed to Martinez at
