Andrew Taylor (D) - VP for Governmental Affairs
Running as a Democrat, I want to be as transparent and open about my identity. Having served on Legislative Affairs Council, I have worked in a non-partisan capacity for Western before and know what it means to represent all students.
But as a Democrat, I’ll advocate for the same values of supporting higher education, environment protections and equal rights for all people.
If elected, one of my biggest goals is to increase participation in local government by making the local liaison position full time. At both the city and county council level, Western can give input to relevant issues for students, like Rental Safety Standards, coal terminals and other community issues.
