Candidates

Sean Synnuck
For those of you I haven’t met I’m Sean. I’m from a small Welsh town so relate to getting used to a new city for the first time.
Having done a foundation, I lived in halls last year and was a department rep. I believe this is one reason why I’m the right candidate for this role as I’m both accustomed to making the most out of the short time we spend together (it really goes as quickly as they say) and have experience working with university management representing students. I’m used to committee and governors meetings, coordinating with other representatives, and most importantly listening to those I represent to put across everyone’s opinions, not personal beliefs.
I intend to foster a sense of community within our halls, aiming to organise events like a common-room christmas party or a garden easter egg hunt. Not only as outlets for our excitement about the holidays (and a break from lectures), but as great opportunities to meet other students.
In light of issues previous residents faced; disruptive building work, leaks and collapsing ceilings resulting in successive rent strikes, it’s essential we have a confident, outspoken representative working constructively to defend our interests.

An essential conviction of mine is doubtless the interdependence of each person's contribution to society.That is the reason why social initiatives are inseparable part of me.
The experience is very essential so as a past board member of some non-governmental organisations I am used to having a lot of responsibilities and dues.
I have taken part in several socially significant events to raise awareness of main issues.This proved utterly important for me and I came to the conclusion that every voice is valuable and can make a change if heard by the right people.
Teddy Favre-Gilly
I want the house to become more of a community. Rather than everyone being tucked away in their kitchen, I want to make the garden a more attractive place for everyone to come eat, meet and drink!

For those who don’t know: the elected house rep gets £2,000 off their rent.

I will campaign for a house budget to spend on the garden, buying blankets and paraffin outdoor heaters for the coming winter months, table umbrellas for the British rainy days and a barbecue for the new weekly tradition of Campbell BBQ. What’s more we’ll source some Shoreditch-style decorations such as barrels, bar stools and fairy lights to make the garden feel more like a pretentious trendy drinking establishment and set up a projector for movie nights.

The budget will also fund a Christmas lunch with crackers, hats, turkey etc and a big Easter Egg hunt when the time comes.

We’re in this accommodation for a whole year together, so lets make the most of it. This budget should benefit the many!

Come to the first of many BBQs on Monday 17th, for free dinner and a feel of the future for our hidden gem of a garden.
