Where’s Your Plan?
Admittedly, I am a trim-the-fat, anticipate-needs, kind of budget hawk. I tried this at UF as a Senator just before the Voice campaign, and I also used that philosophy in crafting BOCC’s first $360,000 budget.
So, I admired Susan Henriques for her tenacity in her campaign to be very forthcoming on her website and to provide comprehensive, believable goals for the Finance office. She certainly is one of the more knowledgeable candidates to run for Treasurer.
But, I think I’m more bullish about Lola Bovell. Unite has posted her plan to balance the budget. It is concise, reasonable, and quite achievable. It cuts the fat out of SG’s budget so it doesn’t have to cut the budget of other student organizations, but makes the cut out of unnecessary expenses. I LUV IT!
I will say this, it took them a while to get on their feet, but it sure looks like Unite is on a roll now, and just in time, too.
Can I get started on the Lola for President buttons?
