Tristan Fielder greets Brian Valadez at one of the candidate’s campaign tables. Fielder and his running mate gave students coffee and snacks while they discussed issues on campus.

Tristan Fielder and Emily Hecox are running for Student Body President and Vice President, respectively, and are campaigning about the many issues they wish to change at ASU if they win.

Fielder said he and Hecox have been in the Student Government Association for two years and have served in executive positions this past year.

"We’re running because we know we have the ability to create a better Angelo State, and we feel that we need to ensure that experienced and qualified individuals get the available leadership positions in SGA to preserve its integrity and progress," Fielder said.

Fielder said they are going to make many things happen if they win the election.

"We are going to make scantrons free again for all students," Fielder said. "We are going to reevaluate our university’s parking system. We’ve developed many other plans that address environmental, Greek life, multicultural and athletic issues."

Fielder said they will represent and communicate with all segments of our student population, "where SGA had failed to in the past."

"All of the major changes we are planning to make will prove to create a better Angelo State for all students now and in the future," Fielder said.

Fielder said winning this election, for them, will ensure the integrity of SGA and "slingshot our university into a period of rapid progress."

"Being able to make our proposed changes would mean a much better ASU for all current and future students," Fielder said

Fielder asked for students to please look out for the all student emails with the voting link that is going out soon. The voting will be open on April 11 and 12.

"Please exercise your right to vote, as your votes will directly determine the success of Student Government Association next year and whether or not the changes we have proposed will be able to happen," Fielder said.

Victoria Galvan, junior and member of SGA said she think Hecox and Fielder and doing well in the election so far and that they are very qualified for the positions they are running for.

"I’m not saying who I am voting for but I’m just saying they are qualified for the position and they deserve it," Galvan said.

Galvan said the two have put in a lot of work into the Student Government Association.

"This is why I think they deserve it," Galvan said.
