The Crimson Endorses Hayward-Zhang

As of tonight, The Crimson officially endorses Hayward-Zhang for the ’09-’10 UC President and Vice-President. Although the policy platforms of the Bowman-Hysen and Hayward-Zhang tickets are very similar, we believe George J.J. Hayward ’11, a Crimson editorial writer, and Felix M. Zhang ’11 have a track record that proves they will implement their proposals. Hayward’s accomplishments include obtaining cell phone service for AT&T users in the Quad, erecting ATMs in the Quad and the MAC, and persuading administrators not to reduce the shuttle schedule. When he ran for UC Representative, Hayward promised such results—and he delivered. As UC President, he ostensibly will do for the entire student body what he has done for his current constituents. More after the jump.
