It is my pleasure to announce that Swamp Party has officially set its Spring 2014 campaign platform.
In building this year’s platform, we sought to combine both the students’ needs with the expertise of our candidates.
It is our belief that this process has yielded a platform that is comprehensive, dynamic and truly seeks to serve all students here at the University of Florida.
Since Swamp Party was founded in Fall 2012, its leaders have worked tirelessly to improve the lives of the students at the University of Florida, and this year’s platform is an excellent representation of this.
We have taken what we have heard from students and come up with four main categories to focus our platform on.
These categories consist of student life, academics, safety and transportation and student organizations.
Each category was molded to ensure that we are able to meet the multitude of students’ needs across campus.
From now until the election on Feb. 18 and 19, our candidates will be out every day helping familiarize students with our platform.
We urge all students who are interested in finding out more about our platform or who have questions to come ask a Swamp Party volunteer!
A more comprehensive list of our platform can also be found at swamppartyuf.com.
As always, we are together for tomorrow!
