By Lambda Staff

On Feb. 02, the Students’ General Association election candidates participated in a candidate debate in the Laurentian University student centre.

Candidate Abraham King, who is running unopposed for the position of Vice President, Policy and Advocacy, did not attend the debate. In an online interview, King stated that he “couldn’t make the debate” but encourages students to “feel free to approach (him) or send a message voicing any questions or concerns” via Facebook.

When asked to comment on his candidate platform, which cannot be found online, King stated that this is “part of his campaign strategy.” He continued on to state that, if elected, he plans on making “Laurentian not just a great school, but an awesome community so that students can really enjoy the Laurentian experience. How I plan to accomplish this is to work efficiently with the SGA executive to tackle any issues and also generate new and creative ideas to make Laurentian exceptional. Laurentian University is already a great school but I feel we have the potential to be much more.”

The 2016-17 SGA elections will take place on Feb. 8 and 9, between 9 a.m. and 5 p.m.
