Council Senator Project Updates

    In order to write an update on these projects, the Guardian repeatedly contacted the following campuswide senators: Karen Liang, Carlos Molina, Amanda Malamud, Kirk Freeman, Ashton Cohen, Brad Segal, Matt Bradbury and Clinton Rodriguez. Of these, Brad Segal, Matt Bradbury and Clinton Rodriguez responded regarding their projects. 

    Brad Segal stepped into his role as campuswide senator on March 14, after the resignation of former senator Annie Yu. Segal said that he received funding for his senator project the same night he was appointed into his position. 

    His event, a film screening of “Haiti: Where did the Money Go?” in conjunction with the UC Haiti Initiative, intended to highlight the misuse of funds donated to post-earthquake Haiti. 

    Segal was recently re-elected as a campuswide senator for the 2012-13 academic year.

    For his senator project, Matt Bradbury focused on the formation and growth of voter registration org Student Voter Access Committee, which was started last year by SOVAC Executive Director Arshya Sharifian. Bradbury has integrated SOVAC into the Associated Students, enabling the organization to work during freshmen move-in weekend and register 1,700 new voters. 

    Bradbury said that he is currently working on the internal reformation of A.S. Council, specifically by adding more committees to increase council’s division of labor and specialization. Bradbury also played a large role in A.S. Council’s election code revisions, which were completed and implemented during Fall Quarter 2011.

    Clinton Rodriguez worked on freshmen senator recruitment by attending Marshall, Muir and Revelle College orientations and staying active on the official 2015 page for incoming students to advertise for the three open council positions. 

    Rodriguez also partnered with the Inter-Fraternity Council to create a tailgate for Greeks, with the assistance of Associate Vice President of Enterprise and Operations Brian McEuen and Associate Vice President of Athletic Relations Aurora Lopez.
