Casting opens for Muppet show 2010

Nominations for VUWSA’s 2010 executive closed last Thursday with the big surprise that current president Jasmine Freemantle is not seeking re-election.

In an interview with Salient last week Freemantle played coy with the prospect of a second term, saying she was strongly considering her future. She did say that if she didn’t run she would support a “strong and sustainable” successor.

Salient’s guess is that this is current Vice-President (Administration) Max Hardy.

Alan Young has hedged his bets by nominating himself for three positions, including president and vice-president.

Many of the catagories have only one candidate, meaning No Confidence will be a strong option for many VUWSA voters this year.

No nominations for the positions of Vice-President (Administration), Queer Officer and for one of the publications committee reps were recieved. This coupled with No Confidence’s strong presence means some positions will probably be co-opted until VUWSA is able to hold a by-election early next year.

Because nominations closed right on deadline, Salient is unable to provide man­ifestos or interviews until next week’s issue.

We will be updating the Salient website for more details over the next week.

    Unless a woman runs for AVP the entire VUWSA presidential team will be men. How surprising. I’d rather have Freemantle than 3 men, not that either of those options appeal to me.

The shade of Pasifika Brown is Bold and Brilliant. So is being a Woman and Fa’afafine

: Proud. Because I am a woman. I am a fa’afafine. I am unapologetic for that. Brown. Because my skin carries the stories of thousands of brown women who came before me. Pasifika. Because I know this is my culture. This is tradition. I know that there has been, and will always be,
