SGA Elections Represent Importance of Democracy

by News Editor Ashley Remkus

Elections are vital to a healthy democracy. Once every four years, voters can kick out the president, and every two years they can replace Congress.

The best benefit of democracy on campus is students elect their representatives every year. While student government elections may seem less important than those on the state and national levels, the impact they have on the campus community is huge.

Last year, SGA began hosting “Meat the Candidates,” an event that allows UNA students to ask questions and interact with the people who will represent them. Seeing the GUC Loft packed with students eager to learn about the candidates brought a smile to my face.

As candidates look to the new year, I hope they will remember those students they made promises to. UNA students deserve the best leadership.
