The Gazette critiques USC prez candidates’ debate
The three University Students’ Council presidential candidates faced off in their first public debate yesterday. Here’s The Gazette’s thoughts on the candidates’ debating skills:
Josh Safer Chris Reynolds Tom Stevenson
— clearly the underdog candidate — appeared confident and well-prepared — appeared down-to-earth, genuine and calm
— lack of USC leadership experience is apparent; he — spoke extremely passionately — portrayed a relaxed, laid-back and no-nonsense persona

— aside from a few witty one-liners, Safer didn’t — occasionally lapsed into using catch-phrases
engage much in any actual debate and rhetoric rather than explaining details
Yesterday Reynolds and Stevenson went head-to-head on several hot issues. Here’s what they had to say:
