Letter to the editor: D.O. right to endorse Kelly
On principal I don’t like to say it too much, but … I agree with The Daily Orange that Ryan Kelly is the best choice for SA President. As an involved senior on this campus, this is the third election I’ve been able to vote in. Starting with Andrew Lederman in 2003, Travis Mason in 2004, and Wayne Horton in 2005, the D.O. has successfully endorsed and picked the winning candidate for the last 3 years, fully explaining their endorsement and helping undecided students on campus figure out who to vote for.
The lack of coverage this year for the election was rather disappointing compared to last year’s pages of stated support from students, but it does not diminish the importance of The D.O.’s presidential choice. The D.O. assembles a board each year, individually interviews each candidate, and debates who deserves The D.O.’s support.
Monday’s editorial board article, ‘Realism makes Kelly ideal SA president’ points out an important difference between these two ready-made leaders, saying Kelly has ‘concrete ideas’ while Correia has ‘less-defined conceptual plans.’ It is also stated that Kelly’s prior knowledge of SA will allow him to ‘begin work immediately.’ If anything has been certain the last three elections, it is that those presidents with concrete ideas and an ability to begin work immediately have been the most effective.
Even if it’s just for this topic, listen to The D.O. They’ve done the research on the candidates. Keep the progressive change of SA alive, vote Ryan Kelly for SA President.
