                                SGA PRESIDENTIAL CANDIDATES
Editor's Note: The Davidsonian asked the candidates for Student Government President to respond
to four questions regarding their candidacy.
     (1) What are your qualifications for the job of SGA President?
     (2) If elected, what will be your primary interests/goals as SGA President?
     (3) The SGA President is the leader, but still part of a team. If you are elected, how do you
plan to pursue your own personal agenda as well as work with the SGA body as a whole to get
things done?
     (4) Why do you want to be SGA President?

Editor's Note: The Davidsonian asked the candidates for Student Government Vice-President to
respond to four questions regarding their candidacy.
     (1) What are your qualifications for the job of SGA Vice-President?
     (2) If elected, what will be your primary interests/goals as SGA Vice-President?
     (3) As SGA Vice-President, how do you plan to work with the SGA President and the SGA
body as a whole to get things done?
     (4) Why do you want to be SGA Vice-President?
