            • Mayor’s Race
              • How do we decide which mayor we’re supporting?
                • Student survey? Maybe an online one that could be published in the weekly campus newsletter email so that all students would have an opportunity to fill it out?
  • CCS table outside of the library to get visibility and get information from students in regards to what they’re looking for in a mayor, aka further surveying
  • Mayor’s Race event in April, more official actual event would occur closer to this date
    • Possibly movie night with a fraternity/sorority?
  • In mean time get surveying and conversation going
  • There are a lot of candidates, (ex: Nadia Ramsey, former judge) so there is a lot of research/surveying to do
