Why your vote matters

  1. 1. Why your vote matters<br />It really does, yo<br />
  2. 2. What’s at stake<br />270 staff members<br />Well over a hundred years of excellence<br />Control of Manning, Hermans and other catering.<br />
  3. 3. How leading scientists have determined most voters will make their decision<br />
  4. 4. Importance of decision v thought put into the decision<br />Weight equals four cars, eight hippos and 6000 meal vouchers<br />One of those tiny novelty pianos <br />
  5. 5. Introducing Tim’s campaign<br />Tim’s independent<br />Thoughtful<br />And honest<br />He has spoken with staff about the viability of each one of his policies.<br />Tim has not breached the spending cap, actually intends to fulfil all of his policies and will never invade Czechoslovakia.<br />
  6. 6. Why this campaign is less visible than other campaigns.<br />Tim’s typical discretionary budget each week<br />5$ pizza and a can of drink from Sutekh<br />0.00$ spent on books, clothes, computer games, live music, event attendance or transport.<br />0.00$ Spent on blow<br />Once I found a fifty dollar note, that was pretty cool.<br />Tim is actually, certifiably, genuinely poor. Quite possibly the poorest candidate in the race<br />That should not make a difference to whether he gets elected or not<br />
  7. 7. There’s a vicious cycle here<br />
  8. 8. You can break the cycle<br />Just read what’s about to come up. It’s not flashy, it’s not funny, there will be no more pictures, but it really matters.<br />
  9. 9. Bars and catering<br />The university wants to take over bars and catering on campus.<br />Why is not clear, most probably for profitability.<br />If we lost the bars and catering we’d lose a major source of income, and thus financial independence.<br />
  10. 10. How this plays out, pt 1<br />Everyone says they oppose the loss of Manning and Hermans, but Tim has a plan.<br />The university can’t just waltz in and take the place, they need to force us to give it to them<br />How would they do that?<br />
  11. 11. How this plays out pt 2<br />At the moment we get 3.56 million dollars in support from the university under the service level agreement. Our total budget is over 20 million.<br />If the university were to try to force us to give over the bars and catering, their best bet is to threaten to cut the money they give us<br />
  12. 12. We can make up this extra cash<br />If we attract more members to the access program. Access members pay us money, and then buy more things from us throughout the year.<br />But we need a plan to reach out to new potential access card holders.<br />
  13. 13. Here’s how we can<br />Identify constituencies who do not buy access cards, create benefits targeted at them and market directly to them.<br />Most of the ideas I have are almost cost neutral, the rest are cheap.<br />
  14. 14. The plan…<br />
  15. 15. In sum<br />We all get cheaper services.<br />The union’s position is strengthened.<br />Students who otherwise wouldn’t get involved benefit from the union.<br />Victory for all.<br />
  16. 16. If you liked this<br />Think about voting 1 Tim ( at least consider it.)<br />Tell your friends about these ideas<br />Post this video on your wall<br />
