I plan on serving this University as your Student Government Vice President by pushing for better mental health resources the University offers especially during such a trying time with the COVID-19 Pandemic. I also plan on working with students and administration to better explain the process of fully reopening the University so that our students can return to having the Bobcat experience. I also believe, as a united Bobcat family we should push for even more opportunities to better our inclusivity on campus so that we may all come together and experience TXST for what it fully has to offer.

CAMPAIGN AGENDA
It is imperative more then ever that the students have Texas State University have the capability to voice their ideas to their representative body. My campaign agenda is to expand the ways students may voice their opinions on campus. There are three main components in this action: 1) Posters and fliers all over campus sharing a link students may use to send their ideas to. 2) A set team of senators to go through x amount of opinions. 3) To let all senators know what the most pressing issues are. I fear that not many students know of the senate, and if they do, that they feel no relation to it. To give them the potentiality of voicing concerns with this new campaign, we catch their eyes and their minds.
