BACKGROUND I’m a third year medical student seeking re-election to represent all undergraduate students of the Faculty of Medicine & Dentistry at Students’ Council: including those in the Dental Hygiene, Dentistry, MLS, MD and Radiation Therapy programs.

Throughout my time at this University, I have served in previous roles including Vice-President of the Medical Students’ Association (MSA), GFC Councillor, FA Chief Returning Officer, and member of my faculty’s Academic Appeals Committee, among other roles.

TRACK RECORD For the last 2 years, I have been an active member of Students’ Council, championing multiple changes to institutional practices and bylaws. In addition, I have attended 100% of the 47 meetings of Students’ Council since May 2015 and personally drafted 15 pieces of successful legislation, including changes to elections bylaws and increased Faculty Association autonomy. I’ve been a member of Bylaw Committee since 2015 and Chair during the 2016/2017 term.

PLATFORM I pledge to: 1) Continue fighting for fiscal prudence within the SU, particularly regarding big-ticket items. 2) Continue improving and modernizing SU bylaws, while ensuring legislation is actually followed. 3) Continue liaising and maintaining contact with the MSA regarding relevant FA concerns. 4) Continue promoting a culture of compromise at Students’ Council.

Thank you for your time and consideration! On March 22/23, vote Brandon Christensen for Medicine & Dentistry Councillor!
