  1. Representative Report
    Sean Stuart

This past week, Sean has met with Washington Bus rep., Sean Jacobsen about voter registration, reviving Bulldogs Vote Club, Voter Registration 101 training, what is needed to give Washington Bus permission to be on campus, Voter registration field plan, and tabling around campus about voter registration. He also has worked on a plan for Civic Engagement Town Halls, and discussing a potential partnership with UW Bothell and Lake Washington Tech. for a Candidate Forum regarding the 45th LD special election/ state senate race. Plans were put in place for Constitution Day, Tabling voter registration at the Welcome Fair, drafting items for the legislative agenda survey, and reviewing of the ASBC bylaws. Next week, the focus is on official hiring of OSLA Policy Coordinator, meeting more with Sean Jacobson and Maria Leininger, as well as shifting focus of the voter registration service learning plans, drafting legislative agenda survey questions, and assisting with the new bill ASBC.Bill.2017-18.3.

Erika Lamothe
I’ve been focusing on the website and have updated our team page, it is a little finicky so I need to fix the layout.

Get a signature from LaMeshia regarding the tri-fold. Not sure if we should get started on it yet because our team is no longer full or complete.

I plan to draw up ideas for our logo to refine it and re-visit our brand identity. I want us to be more about the students and less about the faculty and staff. I want to ensure ASG is student friendly, trustworthy, and respectful of students’ needs.
