2009 Campus Policy Survey: Sarah Bratt

Sarah Bratt: (-35, -45)

Personal Issues Score: -45 Economic Issues Score: -35

Student government should:

Healthy Eating: Encourage students to make healthy choices by funding discounts and subsidies for nutritious foods. Create new awareness and education programs promoting healthy eating.

Club Funding: Spend more on club funding only with grants or external funds, not student fee monies. Retain the Appropriations Board.

UAPD & Red Tag Program: Protect students with cameras installed in residence halls. Support a stronger police presence on campus.

Free Speech: Pass an official resolution of reprimand when a publication like the Daily Wildcat prints an offensive article or a campus group hosts an offensive event. Attempt to prevent offensive speech by expanding diversity training and social justice programs.

Spending: Expand student services and programs (Legal Services, Safe Ride, Sustainability, A-Town, Bear Down Camp, CatsRIDDE, etc.), even if it means increasing student fees or creating new ones to pay for them.

Job Support: Maintain current support for student employment.

Concealed Weapons: Pass a resolution condemning any attempt to pass legislation allowing concealed carry of handguns on campus. Mobilize students to lobby against such legislation.

Elections Code: Expand the reach of the ASUA elections code to prevent collective campaigning and de-facto parties and regulate new technologies like Twitter.

Pride Alliance & WRC: Retain both programs within ASUA and maintain their funding.

Textbook Prices: Fight rising textbook prices by supporting stronger government regulation of the textbook market, and launching advocacy, awareness, and lobbying programs.
