||Hello! My name is Gemner Sandoval and I am a student a part of the Bethune College community. I would like to run for Executive Vice-President of Bethune College because as a constituent and a previous member of council, I have grown significantly and thus, become aware of what needs to be improved within the Bethune College Community. Currently, there is a disconnect between Bethune and Lassonde students. If elected, I would work hard to foster and facilitate growth between these two groups. I also believe that improvements can be made regarding the equity and inclusion for all marginalized groups within Bethune. The JACS and JCR should and will be a space that is clean, functional and open to all. As your Executive Vice-President, I would work directly with my peers to improve the transparency between Bethune College and its constituents, while also working fervently to ensure that all feel welcome within our college. Thank you!
||I want to run for Executive Vice-President because I believe that I can make a meaningful impact on Bethune in the upcoming year. I would like to mainly focus on the JCR as the JCR not only impacts the Bethune Council but it impacts a wide variety of constituents. I want to upkeep the rental system we have in place that aids a lot of students throughout the year, and also expand the system as well by adding more items and advertising about the system itself.
My goal is to make Bethune the best college at York. Create a respectful, yet fun and safe space in the JCR would be a great start in my mind. If I'm elected, I truly think I can make the changes necessary to aid Bethune's journey to being number 1.
||HELLOOO! Some of you may know me and some of you may not! Either way, I want to elaborate on why I am running for Executive Vice President. I have been on council in my first year as a first year representative and loved the experience. My goal for bethune’s council is to give students an opportunity to become more involved within the community. I want to organize and carry out different activities, projects and events, as a team! I want to help organize meetings, goals and deadlines, making sure everyone is getting involved. I will strive to continue to make improvements in our college, for every student here at Bethune. I will listen to your concerns and work hard for you. One of the reasons I'm running for Vice President for the student council is because I want to give back to the university I love so much. I want to be that friendly face for new students coming in and a defender for students already here. SARAH FOR VP!!! Thank you!
||I am running for the position of EVP for three main reasons.
1. I feel as though I know majority of the people who come by jacs and jcr and I spend a decent bit of time there so for the sake of maintaining these areas it should not be an issue.
2. I would like to contribute in integrating new council members with the rest of the BCC
3. After a year as general member I would like to continue representing the students or bethune within council meetings and bethune events.
||As the only individual running for this position with a high council experience, I believe I can do what is best for both the incoming council and the constituents of our college. I have learned a great deal from my experience as O-Chair and can apply my knowledge to assist all positions to give the Bethune community the best impact for the incoming year. With the 50th anniversary incoming, I hope to use the budget fix all the current issues that are present in our spaces such as smell, malfunctioning equipment and extend as much assistance as possible to the people. I aim to outreach Bethune to all peoples and communities to create the most diverse and inclusive environment possible by setting forth strict rules to ensure that peoples of all backgrounds and identities are respected and welcome. I also wish take measures to assist with mental health to the best of the Council's ability. Throughout this past year, I had also done, as much as I could to improve the safety of our community by stocking the first aid kit, and providing the past EVP with all the necessary first aid material. I have worked as much as possible with all positions of council and know in depth of the responsibilities and tasks of their positions and can be of great assistance when needed, and can provide insight to ensure they can do their tasks with ease and do what is best for the community. As the Bylaws have just been implemented, I will also enforce the concerns of the community to apply the changes the community wishes to see to ensure the council operates with honor while keeping the interest of individual positions as well.
