Deane, Tyler for senior class

Duo has a feasible, wide-ranging platform

Liz Deane and Justin Tyler have the vision and personalities to effectively lead the class of 2011 through its senior year.

Their platform provides an exciting balance between social events and philanthropic endeavors. Deane and Tyler’s passion to create both a fun and productive final year for seniors is obvious and inspiring.

 Deane and Tyler’s social platform provides a good mix of alcoholic and non-alcoholic events. Senior class socials should extend beyond bar nights, and Deane and Tyler are the candidates that will make that happen.

 Senior trivia nights and movies on the quad are two examples of enjoyable events outside of the bar that will unite seniors.

Deane and Tyler’s plan to create a seniors-only advisory committee to the chancellor is also a great idea that will provide Chancellor Holden Thorp with valuable insight from experienced UNC students.

And their philosophy on service is to connect seniors to established organizations, rather than try to start many new projects that will struggle to get off the ground.

Furthermore, Deane and Tyler demonstrated a rapport in their endorsement interview that was unmatched by their opponents and will undoubtedly foster a close, productive working relationship.

Deane and Tyler’s platform, motivation and passion simply outmatch their competition.

Sean Kiernan and Elizabeth Monier, while certainly capable, did not show commitment to the balance between philanthropic and social events the way Deane and Tyler did.

Further, their idea for senior bar nights to be open to students 18 and older will not resonate with the senior class and defeats the purpose of “senior” bar nights.

Tyler Aiken and Justin Webb expressed their desire to ensure that they have an accurate understanding of the senior class’ wants. However, some of their ideas — notably a senior job fair — seem unfeasible. And their platform was not nearly as comprehensive or as tenable as Deane’s and Tyler’s.

Deane and Tyler are the best choices for senior class officers. Their drive, personalities and ideas separate them from the field.
