Benjamin McDonnell
I am standing for Ramsay and Ian Baker's hall rep because I believe that together, we can change our halls for the better. My main policies are:
- Recycling Bins for every kitchen
- Reducing our carbon footprint
- Being able to use the East gate into Ramsay
- Decreasing food wastage in the cafeteria by allowing students to take leftovers away in tupperware
- Increasing international student integration by organising internal social events
- Organising an end of term party for our halls

If elected I intend not just to introduce these policies, but more importantly to listen to YOUR ideas because I am YOUR representative and I will campaign actively and loudly for what you all want.

I have prior experience in leadership and representative roles from school where I was my yeargroup rep for 3 years running. I also have good negotiating skills, something I believe to be crucial when trying to get what you guys want.

I am NOT running this campaign for personal gain, I am running it because I genuinely care about improving the lives of those around me and find doing so immensely rewarding, if you vote for me I promise you one thing.
YOUR VOICE WILL BE HEARD!
Amélie Clark

As hall rep, my priority would be to make both Ramsay and Ian Baker enjoyable for all, enhancing our university experience. I will make sure that all voices are heard, regarding all matters of life in our accommodation.

Making our spaces more environmentally-friendly is my main concern. A crucial starting point is to install another bin in kitchens, separating recycling and general waste. Other projects include collaborating with the cafeteria to produce less waste from meals: serving smaller portions but being able to go get seconds, allowing students to collect whatever is left over after meals and donating the rest to the soup kitchen down the street.

Another subject that I wish to touch on is to make Ramsay and Ian Baker more integrated socially. Hosting formal events such as nice dinners or balls alongside barbecues during warmer seasons, game nights as well as parties will help integrate residents in different blocks of our halls. These events will help us get to know people from Ramsay and Ian Baker who we might not have a chance to regularly interact with.

I am an approachable and open person, and wish to be the voice of any issues raised by you. :)

I have loved my time in Ramsay halls so far, although as we all know it's not perfect and I am passionate about improving it.

I have tried to speak to as many people as possible over the last week or two in the effort to try and get a good idea of what people would most like changing and have kept an account of every issue mentioned!

I have a condensed (really I have kept it very short) summary of some of the key issues and my particular ideas about how to change them in my manifesto and I would really appreciate it if you would check it out.

Either way, I'm looking forward to explaining a few of my ideas in much more detail if you're interested in hearing them and will be running a free coffee and hot chocolate meeting session on Monday evening.

All the best,

Henry
