Senate candidate Jason Schaffer said that being a senator means to directly represent a diverse population of UNM students and responding to their needs and wants. Schaffer, a sophomore double majoring in political science and economics, said the Associated Students of UNM is a great way to get involved and help students out because he is very interested in all student organizations around campus. He said he is a resident assistant in the dorms and he’s gotten to see how things work around campus and his desire to get involved helped him decide to run for Senate. Schaffer said he wants to help senators become more connected with student groups and keep contact with student needs and support them, instead of just allocating funds to them and then leaving it at that.
