Tania Allan – President 

I have attended Assiniboine Community College for almost a year now. It has been a privilege to build relationships and meet many students from different programs, cultures, ages and life experiences. My goal in running for President is to create a space for your voice and ideas to be heard. To advocate for your concerns. I want to bring about stronger unity and community amongst all of ACC’s locations. To bridge gaps between Student Council, Student body, and Administration. Most importantly, if elected, I promise to work hard to support you and all students. To serve you with honesty, integrity and in your best interests at all times. #yourvoicematters.

My warm and outgoing personality makes other feel at ease. I am always open to feedback.

Mikayla Lojek – President

Hey, I’m Mikayla (Interactive Media Arts) and I’m running for president. My main goal: be there for all of you and get us all ready to take back our lives after we come back to ACC! You know, I care quite a lot and I will do my absolute best to make the school a better place for us and all the people that come here in the future. But if you don’t know me, I don’t want you to just trust a stranger, so let’s change it: I’m from Poland, my parents’ cat is currently taking over my old room, and I’m always up for some apple pie. But most importantly – I care about my fellow-humans. That’s the whole agenda. If you want me to spend my days coming up with ways to make your time at ACC better, vote through email on Wednesday and Thursday, March 25 and 26!

Matt Lucero – VP Finance

My name is Matt Lucero and I am a Practical Nursing student at the Victoria East campus. I am running for Vice President of Finance. My not-as-awesome-as-you-are experience that will help me be a useful part of the council include my being the Health and Human Services Representative at ACC for the school year 2019-2020 and my previous job at a large financial institution.

My goal, if accepted into the council as Vice President of Finance, is to make sure we continue to allocate Student Association budgets properly with the same or even better oversight. My plan is to head the internal budget and finance committee we established this year and work with representation from the rest of the student body. I am excited to be able to bring my skills and knowledge from my previous work experience in and outside the ACC Student Association.

Above all, I am a simple man and I want to make things easy for others. I have taken feedback from students like you, built teams, and brought projects forward to the school. The ideas and concerns you have had has even reached to the highest level of the school’s administration. I am confident, as Vice President, we can continue to accomplish better things.

Vote Yes for Matt Lucero as Vice President of Finance.

Bio –

An average, simple, diligent guy. I am currently in the nursing program but also had a rewarding career as a manager in risk management (fraud prevention ops) at a bank. I would like to marry the two, nursing and operations management, someday and have a bigger positive social impact.

Problem solving, teamwork, leadership skills, among others I have picked up at my previous lines of businesses prepared me to be on the council. My one year experience in the ACC student association will be the biggest factor. My experience on the council should help the next council with their day-to-day operations, planning, and general events.

My goal is to have a measurable positive impact on students. This year, among many of the programs and events I have been to in support of the student body, I am most proud of our initiative (spearheaded by my team) to install more hand-sanitizers across the campus.

Goal-oriented. Like a math problem, there are many ways to solve a problem and there are plenty of variables to consider first as well. I like to understand a problem first before acting on it.

Team Player. No man is an island, never is that truer while sitting on the student council that works for a large student body. Working with others will make sure you have input from multiple sources and makes the work seem more fun to do.

Project Manager. There will be multiple departments you have to talk to and meetings to be had but everything will fall into place if you plan things ahead. I like my spreadsheets and use them extensively for managing tasks, milestones, and goals.

Robert Hirst

Hello, my name is Robert Hirst and I am running for the GLBT2SQ+ Rep. Unlike predecessors before I am not here to give you lofty promises that I can not fulfill. If you don’t know me personally, I am sure you have seen me around the school (hard to miss lol). I hope that my actions speak louder than words.

I decided to run for GLBT2SQ+ Rep in this election because I have lived 22 years in the GLBT community, and frankly I have seen, done, and heard a lot of things others may have not. So I am not shocked easily. But that’s besides the point. I love ACC for it provided an opportunity for growth when I didn’t think it was even possible. Through ACC I have met some of my most beloved friends and made connections that I hope never fall to the wayside.

My only goal or promise I would make to you regardless of my designated constituency is that I am here for the students. I want to represent my community first off, but secondly, I want to be that person that people feel they can approach if they are struggling. I may not have the magic solution, or even be able to rectify the situation. But I am here. I promise that I will do my best to represent the GLBT2SQ+ community and others who don’t necessarily identify.

Being that the GLBT2SQ+ is about the way one perceives themselves within relationship to others I personally take more of a liberal stance on this. Meaning the GLBT2SQ+ communities’ flag is the rainbow which I feel represents a spectrum. As a spectrum I believe all should be included if the desire is there. Personal reasons aside I know that agreement may not always take place, but I think if we can sit together and discuss our reasoning rationally that’s half the battle.

This introduction to myself and my goals are my main campaign. You may not see posters, or flyers. You may not see me on social media promoting myself. This is not because I do not care, nor is this because I don’t want to reflect my commitment to the student body. Rather I feel if you do not know me, and don’t care there is little I can do to sway your opinion. I hope all will vote next week when the time comes. I would be flattered and elated if I was elected, and I would enjoy giving back to the school that has already given so much back to me. I realize that some of you will look at this introduction and choose not to read my lengthy discription. That’s okay with me too. My last comment is I hope everyone who is attending ACC reaches their goals and reaches for the stars. You can do it. Thanks.
