Today, the first Associated Students of CSU presidential election debate will be held in Lory Student Center Plaza from 11:30 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. Each of the four campaigns will have an opportunity to discuss their platforms and overall vision for the student body for the 2014-15 academic year.
Elections Manager Lexi Evans will be moderating the event and asking questions and invite passing students to do the same.
At first, the event was planned to have speakers and microphones, but because of concerns from library staff, electronics will not be used to project the candidates voices, according to Evans.
During the debate, the student government Elections Committee will also hand out buy-one-get-one Chipotle cards to students on a first-come, first-serve basis.
This is one of two debates happening during the ASCSU election season. The second will take place Wednesday, April 2 in the LSC Theatre at 7:00 pm. The Rocky Mountain Student Media Corp., the parent company of the Collegian, will be moderating the debate.
On Thursday at 7:00 p.m., the Elections Committee will again meet in the Warner College of Natural Resources building in Room 100. The committee will continue to discuss issues surrounding the current election cycle and is open to the public.
