Hi, my name is Rob McGarry and I am running to be your president on your Fanshawe
Student Union. I am a lifelong Londoner and I am currently in my third and last program at the college - the postgraduate corporate
communication and public relations program. I am a graduate of both the broadcast journalism program and television news
My pledge to you is simple: ensure that you know what the Fanshawe Student Union is and what it can do for you, and that the
message is being effectively received. With all the communications-related programs I have taken, I know the importance of
having good communication.
I dont want to make commitments and promises that I cant keep, and the ones I have made are fairly attainable ones. I kept
my promises as your VP Internal and currently as your Language and Liberal Studies rep. whether it was adding more clubs here
on campus, or expanding our environmental efforts in various ways, its always been a promise made, a promise kept.
Lastly, the most important part of my campaign is you. Youre the ones I hear from and want to continue to hear from
throughout the campaign and beyond.

Facebook group, and remember to vote on Fanshawe Online from March 15th at 9am to March 18th at 2pm.

VP External and Academic Affairs
This year as your VP Finance Ive had the opportunity to help many of you, and create a lasting change for students at
Fanshawe. Ive done this locally at FSU as VP Finance as well as provincially on the board of the College Student
Alliance. But above all else Im a student in the digital post-production program. My work has always been a
result of being a student here at Fanshawe and as I near graduation I want nothing more than to serve in your name as
your full-time FSU President. My office will always be an open door for students to come to when they are in need of
You can see what Ive accomplished this year, and what I plan to accomplish next year on my

fellow students who have helped me along the way. I owe it to all of you to do the very best that I can as FSU
President (fingers crossed!).
Thank you for reading and voting!
Hello Fanshawe Students, my name is Bruce, I am a candidate for the office of V.P. External & Academic Affairs. I am a
mature student in my first year of a two year diploma program called (Police Foundations/Law and Security Administration).
I come from a career in Television Broadcasting, that spanned some 15 years, all of it in London. I have attended Fanshawe College
previously (Television Broadcasting), it was a wonderful experience and being given a second chance to attend the College I feel that
I really want to give back in some practical way.
The office of V.P. External & Academic Affairs seem to fit my personality well in so much as I enjoy working with people
and would thoroughly enjoy finding solutions to problems (that seem to plague students). Scheduling seem to be a problem
wayyyyy back when I first attended Fanshawe.
I promise to give you a hundred and ten % effort and if given the chance I will represent Fanshawe proudly.
My name is Malcolm Philp, and Im running to be your VP External for the 2010-2011 year! I was born and raised in Ottawa, Ontario, and
after doing some touring around, I decided to move to London last year to come to Fanshawe College. I am currently a student
in the Construction Engineering Management program.
If I was voted in as VP External, I would be responsible for handling and helping students with academic appeals by
guiding them through the appeal process while also being a source of support. The VP External position would also be
responsible for representing Fanshawe students on college committees, and to make sure that the students voice is
heard in all aspects of the college life.
I believe that I would be a good candidate for VP External because I will stand up for the students voice in all aspects
of the college and be a source of support for anyone who needs help. I have experience on student councils representing
students and solving any issues that they had quickly and effectively.
I hope all of you will consider me for the position of VP External for the 2010-2011 year.
With a year of student union experience as the VP Entertainment, which has been very cool, Ive already learned how the
board works and made friends with plenty of college staff around campus. Ive been given a rundown of what is involved with
the position by our current VP Finance including three main areas: awards, bursaries and scholarships.
Im looking forward to a great year serving you as the VP Finance.
Once a year, as a student you get the opportunity (or tedious task to some) to choose the upcoming
years Student Union - that time is now. Im Veronica Barahona and Im running for the VP Internal position for the
FSU. The Internal position does a number of things such as raise money and awareness for the Shinerama (Students Fighting
Cystic Fibrosis Canadas largest post-secondary school fundraiser) around Fanshawe during Orientation Week, assist with
awareness weeks (alcohol awareness week, sexual awareness week, volunteer week, clubs week etc.) and help clubs get started and stay
organized throughout the year. I personally think I would do a lot with the position, I have worked to raise money for organizations
such as the Childrens Health Foundation in London as well as the Childrens Aid Society in London - Im passionate
about making a small but significant difference and Im hoping that I can generate that same attitude with all of
you! This year Im running unopposed but Im going to campaign as though I do have competition because I should totally work
for the title... so starting March 10th until the 18th youll see me around campus, come up and ask me questions
and then make up your mind whether you think I deserve a YES vote or a NO vote. Get informed, make a decision and VOTE
MARCH 15th - 18th on FOL or at a designated voting station around campus; the outcome of the election is in your hands!
Hello interrobangers and interrobangees, Im taking this opportunity to introduce myself. My name is Joe Ayotte and Im a
first year Music Industry Arts student here at Fanshawe as well as a graduate of Mohawk Colleges Pre-Media & Entertainment
Earlier this year a friend in second year, Vice President of Entertainment Andrew Payne, let us know that the Fanshawe
Student Union offers students the opportunity to run for the office of VP of Entertainment each year. When I looked into it more, I
found that the duties of VP of Entertainment are similar to the duties Ill be responsible for when entering the
real-world music industry, including arranging contracts and event organization. Since I found out about this opportunity Ive picked
Andrews brain about the position and I feel that Im the right person for the job.
As a Music Industry Arts student, Im continuously learning more about the entertainment industry. Ive learned the importance of
contracts and how to work out a fair deal. Im also learning the responsibilities of band management as well as the expectations
of the performers. In Pre-Media and Entertainment I learned the importance of communication and organization in the workplace. All of
these skills are vital to making sure that Fanshawe has quality Entertainment for everyone!
I love meeting new people and hearing their opinions, especially on things like music! So if you see me in the hall or in the
Out Back Shack, dont be shy, say hey!
The names Howes, Derek Howes! And I plan on being your next VP of Athletics! Some of my goals for next year are to bring the
student body together and provide as much as possible for them to meet the students needs. I want to get more of the student body out to
varsity games and improve the numbers on the intramural program at Fanshawe College. I also want to get the word out on the many
bursaries for all the varsity athletes.
I have been working in the Athletics Department for 2 years now. I started out as an athletic technician assistant and have
moved my way to the athletics assistant. I also graduated from the Recreation and Leisure program in 2009 and did my co-op at
the athletics department at Fanshawe College. There, I ran the mens and womens intramural volleyball program. I
also play for the mens varsity volleyball team. I play right side and power and if you dont mind me saying, I can
hit a mean attack line ball! I am currently in the Police Foundations program going through to hopefully one day, serve and
protect! I am an active student on the campus and helped run the OCAA Mens Basketball Provincial Championships this past
weekend. I am very outgoing and laid back. I come from London, Ontario and am very serious on becoming the new VP of Athletics. I hope
to see you all out at Forwall Hall for my speech on Tuesday, March 16th!
