Rebuilding the GDI Movement
Christian Duque offers some very good advice on how the GDI/Independent movement on the University of Florida campus might be able to rebuild itself after several disappointments.
In particular, picking a first-year honors student to run, as he suggests, would be something new and dynamic – and establish an unpredictable new element to the election (all good things for the independent movement). Additionally, the suggested candidate has “credibility” by virtue of being in the Senate, while being new enough not to be tied down to the “System” or corruption.
If they pick someone serious (an accounting major perhaps) for treasurer, the Indies can roll the dice with this first-year and focus their attention on a strong senate slate for LS, Grad Students, Engineering, and some small colleges.
Seriously, I think a younger candidate could spark more interest than a joke party or an “experienced” person who’d probably compromise on the issue of FBK and corruption.
