Hey friends. As the weekly poll to your right (–>) will indicate, the WSA presidential election is open as of midnight last night. You can vote over at the WSA voting site. Wesleying’s policy for the past few years has been not to take sides in WSA campaigns (with the occasional exception of Giant Joint’s), but we’re always glad to post your own pitches as long as they steer clear of mudslinging villainy. Arya and Zach, do take note: our email is staff(at)wesleying(dot)org; we’ll post your pleas.
The following pitch was sent to us by Bartin Menjamin ’75, who wishes to remain pseudonymous, in support of Wesleying’s own Anwar Batte ’13, who has a history of winning WSA elections by write-in consensus. Wesleying offers no comment:
My dear fellow Wesleyan alumni and you crazy commie current students. With all of the press regarding current WSA Presidential and Vice-Presidential front-running pairs Zach/MariAryah/Sam (the establishment candidates), I felt it prudent to inform you that an entirely unofficial write-in campaign is underway to elect the real Giant Joint, sir Anwar Batte ’13 himself, to the WSA Presidency. If you’re planning to abstain from voting or voting for some other unoffical candidate because you think its pointless, or you think the WSA doesn’t matter, then I implore you to consider voting for Anwar, the real WSA outsider. He’s such an outsider he doesn’t even know he’s running!
Also, consider writing in Jake Blumenthal ’13 for VP. He’s never won an election he actually ran for, so maybe he’ll win one he didn’t!
Sincerely, Bartin Menjamin ’75
