Mahdi Mazeh is an LSA freshman who plans on representing you on Central Student Government. As a current “Hill” resident, Mahdi realizes some of the disadvantages students living on the Hill area are forced to face. He hopes to help increase the amount of dining options Hill residents have to choose from, and increase bus transportation to and from the Hill. And no, he does not enjoy being called Tarzan.
Mario is a sophomore civil engineering major running to represent you on the Central Student Government Assembly. He wants to fight for a weekend Commuter North/South route, an academic holiday on Election Day, and affordable and open source textbooks. In addition to being passionate about advocating for change on behalf of his fellow engineers, Mario enjoys mango smoothies, games of euchre, and building autonomous boats. Most importantly, he is neither Italian nor a plumber, but acknowledges that it would be awesome if he were.
Marita wants to reform the University's SafeRide service due to its limited availability by working on an initiative to have the University partner with Uber or Lyft to subsidize and provide a more accessible and reliable transportation service at night because not every student can afford to order services like Uber or Lyft. This initiative ensures that every student will have an actual SAFE ride regardless of their economic background. Another issue she wants to work on is to make eco-friendly menstrual products accessible and for free in all restrooms in the University to be inclusive of all gender identities.
