He will probably walk a hard line, Smith adds, refusing to back down from demands that the University agree to a minimum standard of living for its workers.
"For [McKean] to sway on that...wouldn't make much sense," Smith says.
But, he adds, "I don't think he'll hold tight to the number. If a comparable plan came up that would have as universal an effect as the living wage, he would support it."
If McKean owes his seat to PSLM backing, then Milikowsky says he knows how he wound up as the non-PSLM representative.
"I think the people in SAC who elected me were conservatives," he says.
Milikowsky says he will represent undergraduates' interests, including the demand that a living wage won't be funded by tuition increases.
