Today, it is my distinct privilege to announce that WRGW News - a division of WRGW/GWRadio - will host and moderate the 2010 WRGW News - Student Association Debate for the very first time in the station's 81-year history.The debate will be in two parts, the first featuring EVP candidates Jon Binetti, Logan Dobson, Josh Goldstein, and Rob Maxim and the second featuring SA Presidential candidates Jason Lifton and Xochitl Sanchez. Pliner, along with Assistant News Directors Dan Keylin and myself, will ask the candidates questions in a typical debate format.
We are excited for this wonderful opportunity to serve and inform the GW community this election season, and it is my hope that this will become an annual tradition for many years to come.
But more importantly, we'll be allowing you, the students, to ask questions of the candidates. They can be about anything: what do you care about? What bothers you about GW, or the way the SA works? What do you want next year's administration to do for you? It is important to make sure the candidates are aware of your stances on the issues so that you can hold them accountable and make them earn your support.
Even if you don't have a particular question you'd like to ask, this debate is still an excellent opportunity to find out about the candidates and their platforms before going to the (online) polls on February 24th and 25th.
And if you can't make it to the debate in person, you can listen live and follow our live blog of the event.
Hope to see you there,
Assistant News Director
