Yeah, I think thats a screwed up thing to do on Student Focus' part.
But Student Focus is NEVER unethical in their campaigning!
Not only is that screwed up, I'm sure there are supposed to be protections against that sort of thing.
Thanks for bringing this to the community's attention.
Anyone in Student Focus or L.E.A.D. is a douche as far as I'm concerned.
Rob Roy is the man. If I was still a student, I'd totally be voting for him.
"If I was still a student, I'd totally be voting for him."
my sentiments exactly.
during the last elections, one of the slates put flyers up all over our complex. i was going out on an errand, so i didn't touch the one on our door. when i came back, it had been replaced with the opposing slate's flyer.
I think a huge F.U.C.K. banner needs to be created and strung up in some major area of town.
Who, me? OK, I'll send the email. But I'm nervous. Is it really against campaigning rules?
i'm so glad that you posted this. i saw student focus flier my apartment today too and i noticed that there were no Friends Urging Campus Kindness fliers after they left. I wasn't sure if I should be angry, because I couldn't be sure it was them, or that anybody took them down at all, but I was almost positive. Now i'm enraged. Somebody needs to bring this up to public attention. never has there been so little in the way of ethics on student focus' part and they should be ashamed in themselves. so they know they're going to lose, so what? they deserve to, and they should go down with dignity.
AIM IM with smileysapana
rob roy: Sapana?
rob roy: I just wanted to say I am very upset
rob roy: I spent six hours last night walking around Davis putting up flyers for my slate
rob roy: when i saw a student focus flyer I left it up
rob roy: because I thought it would be messed up to take it down
rob roy: you guys put in hardwork and I respect that
rob roy: But I saw a post in the UCDD LJ community that someone from Student focus walked around and put up there flyers while taking mine down
rob roy: other people from my slate put up flyers also
rob roy: while not disturbing focus flyers
rob roy: THIS IS NOT SERVING WITH INTEGRITY
rob roy: Sapana, I think you are nice
rob roy: but that yellow shirt has spoiled your reputation
rob roy: Student Focus is going to rue this day
I have big poster paper and paints and brushes I'll donate to your cause and help make big posters to put around too if you'd like.

Is there anywhere online that lists the campaign rules? Just curious what they are...
I'm guessing that if they are online, they might be found on the elections committee website, perhaps.
Now that you mention it, I'm curious.
I saw Ami Vora and another person who Ami says was Kai Savaree-Ruess. Ami also admitted that she had been at Wake Forest with Kai today, but denies taking down any fliers. While I didn't see Ami or Kai take any fliers down, I was only at the dumpsters for 2 minutes, and in those 2 minutes the fliers were gone.
SF uses lots of people to help flyer. I really doubt it was any of the candidates. When I campaigning for senate all the people running for senate and exec office all agreed it was really wrong to take down others materials, but some people didn't get that message even when explained to them. Sapana is a good friend of mine and would never do this kind of campaigning.
that may be true, though ami and kai were actually at my complex. ami told rob this herself.
SO LAME! I spent 4 hours in the rain last night putting flyers on doors...we didn't remove any of their flyers. I'm amazed at the lack of respect.
Yeah...it would have been perfectly fine to just pin up their flyers right next to the ones that were already there. The fact that this has happened all over town and not just in a couple complexes is really making me angry. There's no way Focus is getting any of my votes.
Tell the paper there is still time to publish it in the AGGIE! Also taking down flyers is against the solicitation laws in Davis.
