2014 Fall Election (Sept. 16-17)
Note: Candidates will be listed in random order.
Freshman Senator Candidates
I started MSU Billings at the ripe age of 15 ½. Although my degree is in Biology, I have lots of experience in leadership and hard work with humanities, as reflected by my service as an Eagle Scout in the BSA and my time with the Shepherd Lions Club, among other activities. My goal as a Senator would be to make better access, presence, and community relations with connections students, diversity groups for students, and more inter-major activities to bring together the campus, even more than it is today.
I want to ensure that MSUB continues to offer a variety of services to students. As a Freshman, I’ve already used services such as the Jacket Shuttle and I’m anxious to learn more about the school. I also think it’s important for off-campus students to be given a chance to participate in campus events.
Hi, my name is Chelsie Coomber. I am a freshman majoring in Business Management. My goal for college is to get involved on campus and make a difference. I want to serve the students on campus and make MSUB one of the best college experiences for everyone.
Senator-at-Large Main Campus Candidates
I am running for Senator-at-Large. I have always enjoyed being involved and active in school. Currently, I am a Jacket Student Ambassador and chairperson for JSA’s Community Involvement. I also have three jobs on and off campus. I am interested in representing every student and their issues. I know what it is like to be a student who works, goes to school full time and pretends to have a social life. I think our college should work for us and I’d like to hear what you think would improve your experience at MSU Billings.
My goal in running for Senate is to incorporate the Honors program and its values into everyday activities at MSUB, as well as helping students find opportunities within the Honors program. I also wish to make an impact on how incoming students learn about offered courses and class registration. All students should have every opportunity to understand their programs at MSUB, and to be able to fit their classes into a schedule that works for them and lets them graduate on time. I want to be a voice for those students.
I am currently a third year student and have been involved on campus since the beginning of my freshman year. I have been involved in the Residence Hall Association, the Experience Leadership Project and Dance Club. If I am elected as Senator-at-Large, I will do my best to represent the interests of the student population. I have developed an effective work ethic which I will bring to ASMSUB. Thank you for taking the time to vote for your senate representatives.
Hello, I am a student like anyone else on and off campus, currently in my third year. I spend 12 hours or more at our college being involved with classes, clubs, volunteer events, tutoring and athletics. Within these experiences, I hope and pray to represent and serve all students with wisdom and discernment. Thank you for reading and partaking in your Student Government. May God Bless You!
If I am chosen to represent MSUB in student senate for the second year in a row, I can promise dedication. I am not only dedicated to MSUB but I am dedicated to the student, faculty, and staff. I am dedicated to providing a safe and secure campus. I will strive for equality and the comfort of individuality among all students on our campus. I am dedicated to the excellence that MSUB strives for. Vote for me and you will be provided this dedication and hard work.
My hope for becoming a Senator-at-Large is that I may, in my own small way, represent the student body and improve the lives of said body. Moving into the future, MSUB will definitively progress and change from what it is right now into something altogether better than it was before, and if elected I will do my part to aid in that change. So let’s make some things happen.
City College Senator Candidates
As a City College Senator, I would be the voice of the students at City College and represent their interests in the student government. My efforts would focus on building a better communication bridge between the main campus and the City College. Chiefly, I would support providing opportunities for our students to better succeed in the classroom and in their fields of study, i.e. availability for daycare, scholarship awareness. My support for the 9/11 memorial’s maintenance and future is firm, for it is a key element to our unique identity.
Hello, my name is Joseph Wyatt and I am originally from San Luis Obispo, California but have resided in Billings since 2007. Since enrolling at MSUB I have been a student volunteer for the BPD Crisis Prevention Program, City College Career Day and the Industrial Advisory Committee. I also have been a student representative for the Phillips 66 Citizens Advisory Council. Being a non-traditional student, I feel I can be an excellent voice for the City College students and programs. I also would like to continue the positive and growing relationship between both campuses. Thank you for your vote.
