9. What is something nice that you can say about your colleagues that you’re running with/against?
To be quite honest, I have too many nice things to say about all of them to limit it to 300 words! They have all been wonderful co-candidates and it’s been truly great getting to know each of them more. On our private chat platform, we all have a private room that we can talk to each other and discuss the election or any questions we have with our Elections Committee liaisons. It has also been a good place to find encouragement to continue working towards the end of the election season. We have had several light hearted conversations about procrastination and how we promise to do better the next week (spoiler alert: we haven’t yet). We’ve also had serious discussions about the questions that we have answered over the past three weeks. Overall, it has just been a great experience running with each of them and I’m happy to say that I’ve made three new friendships with the organization. I am also very happy to say that I am confident the OTW in great hands no matter who among us is elected.
