Elections Administration Committee

Timothy Billing

Hello Huskies,

A year ago, I was just a Dick’s Drive-In worker, and now I am asking for your vote to be the next ASUW President.

Throughout my three years of working with ASUW, the lack of transparency, accessibility, and accountability has led students to feel that ASUW is disconnected from the student body. As the current Speaker of the ASUW Student Senate, I have worked to combat this disconnect by increasing outreach efforts to Residential Communities, Greek Councils, and a variety of classes to show off the work that senators are doing and encourage student involvement.

Now, it is time for all of ASUW to start connecting with students again.

As your next President, I promise to:

  • Conduct a campus-wide survey in my first month of office to identify ways that ASUW can improve in serving students.
  • Host a weekly “Coffee Hour with the President” to give students a space to tell their stories, voice concerns, and offer them opportunities to advocate directly to administration.
  • Work with the ASUW Vice President to send out campus-wide emails connecting students to resources within ASUW and giving updates to provide accountability and transparency about our work.
  • Establish a cross-campus leadership summit separate from the Washington Student Association to identify ways ASUW can more easily collaborate with other Washington state universities on shared issues.

My past work in ASUW has been characterized by issues brought to me by students hoping to see change. I have worked to create off-campus housing assistance, advocated for hiring a dietician at Hall Health, and pushed for increased emergency aid during the pandemic.

One major issue for students is accessibility, including long wait times to receive disability accommodations. I will work to address this by advocating for:

  • The creation of a task force to analyze DRS operations that includes student representatives from the Student Disability Commission.
  • Increased funding of lecture capture technology, and I will work to develop a plan for implementation to hold administration accountable.

I won’t have all the answers, but I’ll be a resource, build community, be transparent, and advocate for students. By conducting outreach and creating actionable plans, we can improve ASUW’s relations with the student body and continue to tear down the barriers that suppress student voices.
