Student Council Platforms

Editor’s note: This article was initially published in The Daily Gazette, Swarthmore’s online, daily newspaper founded in Fall 1996. As of Fall 2018, the DG has merged with The Phoenix. See the about page to read more about the DG.

To allow students to discuss and debate each platform, all are on individual pages. Links to each platform are below. Any names without links are because those candidates did not send the Gazette their platform.

  1. At some point, will candidates please stop saying unreasonable things? If you’re going to suggest a policy change, do not pull it out of the air- make sure it can be implemented. It just makes you sound ridiculous.

  2. Daily Gazette,
    Thanks for doing this. I was about to vote when I reaized that I did not really know what all the candidates stood for. The 15mins or so I spent informing myself was well worth it.

  3. what?? disproportionate promises make politics what it IS!

    who remembers obama’s speech from 2 weeks ago? “Then we’re going to the countryside, then we’re storming DC, then we’re hitting the cities.” Woah dude, let’s take a break from those Rockstars.
