Griffin said he and several other candi
dates favored refunding unspent money to
students by means of a fee decrease.
As a graduate student, Griffin said, a
' major goal of his is supporting activities that
would benefit graduate students.
Finally, Griffin said: "I can vote fairly and

Gunter said that he wanted a rape

Brown said that he viewed the budget
process as the most important task for the
CGC and that his experience last year as
a CGC legislative assistant would serve him
well. "I helped write some bills, worked with
the executive branch and did administrative
things," he said.
Brown said he wanted to set up a meal
card co-op on North Campus, citing the
success of a similar program on midcampus.
He also said he had ideas about how to spend

Student Government at the end of the year.

some of that money to getting Chapel Thrill

Parker said that the CGC should pay more
attention to the ratings of the qualitative
committees and that "the budget process is
not the place for political statements in terms

Barker also said the CGC should devote
more time to campus issues. "They spend
too much time debating and pronouncing
on issues that don't really affect UNC."
"My experience as business manager of
the Course Review has given me a lot of

said. "New insight is the only way to make

housing situation as areas of concern. "I'm
