Presidential Ticket

Candidate Statement:

Sac State wants to “redefine the possible,” but it takes more than one person’s voice to make a difference. We need campus-wide collaboration and community backing to move forward with change. My name is Noah Marty, and I am teaming up with Donna “BasicTaq” Walters to make this happen. As the current Associated Students, Inc. (ASI) Vice President of University Affairs, voting member for the California State Student Association, former Vice President of Outreach and current Political Director for student organizations both here on campus and statewide, I have gained experience at multiple levels of student government and club leadership. I’ve also held a position at every level of ASI, starting as an interested student, then committee member, next an intern, then a staff member and committee chair, and now in my current role as an Executive on the ASI Board of Directors. I’ve seen this organization from every angle and want to ensure our student leaders have the support they need to succeed. With Donna’s experience as ASI’s Interim Executive Vice President and current ASI Director of Business Administration, a 2020 Dean’s Award Recipient, and major player in bringing a thriving esports scene to our campus and the Big Sky Athletic Conference, she not only knows what is needed to reduce barriers and create environments where student voices are actively heard, but she puts ideas into motion and takes action to represent the underrepresented. We are the most qualified team, because in our current roles we are both already actively making improvements to campus life and higher education. As the new ASI President and Executive Vice President (EVP), we will be able to further our efforts and create larger spaces for all students to be heard. Whether representation means advocating at the Capitol to expand support for housing and homelessness, reform financial aid, or taking student feedback directly to the highest levels at Sac State, we will work to support all Sac State students’ needs equitably. As your President and EVP, we will always welcome questions about our roles in ASI and our efforts to promote inclusivity. We plan to implement policies to provide better support for student clubs and organizations so that student leaders can successfully grow their communities. We will increase both academic and career opportunities by working towards addressing impaction, increasing access to alumni networks, and providing strong leadership to the college directors on our ASI Board. We are dedicated to continuing our efforts towards advancing the support of basic needs and student safety initiatives by collaborating with more departments across campus. Finally, we promise to engage our campus members through a larger and more active ASI presence, and ensure all our business is as transparent as possible to our students. On April 15th and 16th, we ask that you vote for us so that we can continue to strengthen our collective voice, enact the change that is needed for better representation, and serve all Sac State students equitably.

Candidate Statement: 

My name is Coleton Matics, and I am running for Vice President of University Affairs. For the 2019 to 2020 academic year, I was elected as the ASI Director of Health and Human Services. In this position, I organized events and meetings for the students within the College of HHS, and sat on several committees dedicated to the safety and well being of students.

Through CNSA, myself along with other delegates represented our university at the state level in Visalia. At this conference, we voted on by-laws and propositions that affect students nationally. Through my experiences here at CSUS and in the medical field, I have seen first hand how beneficial it is for students to have the basic resources and information necessary to direct them towards a path of success. As Vice President of University Affairs, I will strive to put on career centered events for all colleges at Sac State and work to provide students with the basic resources they need in order to succeed. I believe in order to properly represent the students at Sac State, effective communication between the board, departments, and student body is necessary

TREVOR ROBINSON

Position: Vice President of Academic Affairs

Slogan: We Deserve Better

Candidate Statement: 

I decided to run to be your Vice President of Academic Affairs because I felt that this university was far short of realizing it’s true potential. I believe we can greatly improve this campus in part by electing people who understand and have suffered the same issues we’ve been facing. I’d like to think that I am one of those people. For the last two years, I have been an active student at Sacramento State. I have lived on campus, attended several university events, and met a wide range of unique individuals. Through this time, I have been disappointed with the lack of outreach from our student government, and frustrated with aspects of many student ran programs. I will not lie and claim that I will solve everything and make this campus a paradise, but I do promise that if you elect me I will always remember to listen to you, the ones who put me in my position, and that I will help push for the changes that you need. I will not put the best interests of the board of trustees, or faculty, or anyone else before you, my fellow students paying thousands of dollars for the resources this university is supposed to provide. So if you feel the way I do, and you put your trust in me to represent you, I think together, we can make this university a much better place than it is now. Thank you for your consideration.

Over the past three years I have been involved with Circle K International, where I am currently serving on the Executive board and have been elected to serve again in the 2020-2021 term.

And as an orientation Leader at Sac State, I am resourceful with connections and always willing to roll with the punches. Also being involved with clubs on campus have made me realize that ECS students are less involved in campus activities and also less aware of the resources being provided by campus which is helpful for marketing and can help them to be DIVERGENT. My aim is to make sure ECS students are aware of the opportunities knocking at their doors. And to achieve the same I want to involve the students not only in tech clubs but also in campus committees and other activities.

Hello Fellow Hornets My name is Maanvee Mehrotra, and I am running to be your next Director of Undeclared Students.

Director of Graduate Studies

Candidate Statement: 

My name is Robert Moon, and I am running to be the next Director of Graduate Studies. I am a first-semester graduate student in Communication Studies who did my undergrad at Sacramento State as well. Despite being a graduate student, I am also a high school dropout who has overcome challenges in my life. After graduating from Modesto Junior College, I welcomed my beautiful daughter into the world. As a high school dropout being here at Sacramento State has been a great opportunity for me. On campus, I am part of the Anime & Manga Society and the Japan Club. I also spent the last two semesters writing for The State Hornet. Spending the last two semesters with The State Hornet made me realize that I wanted to be more involved on campus. As the next Director of Graduate Studies, I hope to make a difference at Sacramento State to help current and future graduate students. With this semester’s difficulties related to the coronavirus, it’s more important now than ever to make sure that your voice is heard on campus. If elected, I will make sure that the concerns of graduate students are heard to the best of my abilities and I will always be available to my fellow students. If being a part of The State Hornet taught me anything it taught me that students have a lot of concerns and don’t always have the information necessary to understand the issues at hand. I will do my best to make sure that Sacramento State remains welcoming to all students and especially graduate students. Vote Moon and together we’ll reach for the stars
