Join WSPN’s Chloe Zilembo as she interviews the Class of 2027’s recently elected president and vice president about their campaign strategies, goals for the upcoming school year and fundraising ideas.

WSPN’s Chloe Zilembo sat down with the Class of 2027’s recently elected president and vice president to discuss their strategies for their election, their future plans in office and their fundraising ideas.

Note: These interviews were edited for length and clarity.

President Max Rainville:

  1. What problems do you hope to address?

    The freshman class voice is not heard, so I want to give us that voice. I want us, as a freshman class, to have an equal voice. I also feel that there are too many circumstances of people not being included or not being able to be social, so I want to be able to be a good bridge for everyone across social groups, sports and all different backgrounds.
  2. What was your strategy for the election?

    My strategy for the election was to target different groups of people who I think would be interested in voting for me. I tried to make a connection with the people I was talking to through my speech by saying some things about myself and then giving a guide of what freshmen should expect in the year to come. I mostly targeted the people that I was either already friends with or familiar with, so I already had an edge with them voting for me.
  3. What are you planning for the future?

    I am trying to create different events throughout this year. I have to be aware of getting fundraising for our sophomore semi-formal dance and starting to plan what that is going to look like. In the future, I am planning to get the freshman class their own dance, but it might be tough.
  4. What fundraising ideas do you have?

    I have many fundraising ideas, especially for the semi-formal dance next year. I am planning to start a fundraiser by selling sweatshirts and different clothes. I am also planning to do a bake sale, connection through a restaurant and raffle. There will be many fundraisers to come throughout my freshman year.

Lexi Roman, Vice President:

  1. What problems do you hope to address?

    I hope our sophomore semi-formal tickets are cheaper than they were this year, because this year, they were pretty expensive. I hope to make a change for the better and unite our grade.
  2. What was your strategy for the election?

    I used posters and fliers and I also gave out Munchkins to everyone, which I think also helped.
  3. What are you planning for the future?

    I am planning on doing a fundraiser for a charity to support our local community. I could [also] try to get a dance for freshman year, but that might not happen because we would have already had to start fundraising.
  4. What fundraising ideas do you have?

    I have the idea of doing a bake sale and the executive board collectively had the idea of selling merchandise.
