UP executive slate platforms
John Harrison York | President
York’s platform for President is based on uniting the student body through programs that encourage them to engage in the St. Louis community. The founder of Engage360 and last year’s Vice President of Programming, York says he wants to enable students to do the things they’re passionate about.
MaryPat Sinclair | Vice President of Programming
As Vice President of Programming, Sinclair—this year’s sophomore class president—wants to concentrate on the big speakers and events that students say draw them in. She also plans to expand the Social Programming Board to collaborate with other bodies, like RedAlert and the North Side Association.
Mamatha Challa | Vice President of Administration
Challa says she plans to make the internal structure of Student Union more efficient and effective so that the body can better serve the students it represents. The former Speaker of the Senate says that her familiarity with SU will enable her to better direct resources within student government as Vice President of Administration, and she plans to make the Rat—the former home of Subway—a gathering place for students and student groups.
Cody Katz | Vice President of Finance
Katz, the UP slate’s candidate for Vice President of Finance, wants to use Student Union’s 2.3 million budget to “engage and benefit” students. With experience as last year’s Vice President of Public Relations, Katz says that he wants to stay engaged with student opinions by hosting idea bounces for funding and publicizing individual appeals of SU funds.
Amanda Signorelli | Vice President of Public Relations
Signorelli has seen SU from the other side as a leader of the College Democrats, and as Vice President of Public Relations, she wants communication between Student Union and its constituents to be a “two-way street.” She plans to hold focus groups and create a centralized event calendar to ensure more dialogue between SU and the student body.
