Sport Clubs Endorse Peirce For Platform That Is `Far-Reaching'

The Sports Clubs Program formally endorsed candidate Annie Peirce for Student Body President at a meeting Feb. 5.

The Sports Club Program is one of the largest group on campus, consisting of 55 individual clubs with over 2,000 members campuswide.

The decision to endorse Peirce came after a Jan. 25 forum open to all SBP candidates and sports club members. Of the eight candidates, Dustyn Baker, Justin Young, Eric Johnson, Charlie Trakas and Peirce attended.

After listening to each candidate's platform, students asked questions and voiced support for certain candidates.

Based on feedback from the individual sport clubs, the Sport Club Executive Council has chosen to endorse Peirce. Peirce's platform was the most far-reaching and has the potential to impact all student organizations, including Sport Clubs.

Peirce's platform includes "increasing funding for all University sport clubs." She was the only candidate to specifically address sport club issues, and the council feels that she is the most qualified and best-prepared candidate in the field.

The Sport Clubs Program wholeheartedly supports Peirce and pledges at least 100 votes to her.
