Longest endorsed by both RHA and GLBTSA Groups

The Gay, Lesbian, Bisexual, Transgender and Straight Alliance endorsed Tim Longest for student body president Thursday night, said Swati Rayasam, an executive board member for the group.

The Residence Hall Association also endorsed Longest, said Hans Peng, president of the organization.
Longest said he would fight to secure gender-neutral housing options if elected.

He stressed the importance of inclusion in campus organizations.

Both groups held their debates Thursday evening. At each debate, candidates answered questions from a moderator and then from organization members.

Candidates discussed budget and tuition issues, as well as the controversy surrounding Amendment One, which would place a ban on gay marriage in North Carolina.
