For part of my position as representative in the TCU House of Student Representatives, I must be part of a committee outside of House. My committee is Elections and Regulations, which I love! It's awesome to be the group with the final say in almost everything.
But during election season, it is so stressful! If the races are contested, we have so many fines and complaints and problems to deal with. Today we had an hour and a half long meeting to deal with all of this stuff.
Something that surprised me during the meeting was that somebody said they hated all of the politics/didn't like that we were acting like politicians. But isn't that what we are? Technically, this is politics on a smaller scale. Yes, there will be people choosing sides on campaigns and endorsing others.
Isn't that the whole point?
But unfortunately, politics have gotten a bad name lately. Politics don't have to be bad! They can make things better if used correctly!
What do y'all think?
