Henry Sims is running for office
At first glance, the best part about the upcoming Georgetown University Student Association elections is that someone named Ace Factor is running for student body president. How can he lose with a name like Ace Factor? I mean, for more than 18 years, a band called Ace Factor has been Central Florida's Premier High Energy Dance Band, Perfect for all Nightclubs, Weddings, and Corporate Parties. !!!!
But a closer look at this week's Hoya story announcing the candidates reveals an even more alluring ticket. That would be the ticket of Jed Feiman (COL '12) and Henry Sims (COL '12), Sims being the reserve center on the Georgetown basketball team.
He isn't exactly a superstar, averaging 4 points and 3 rebounds in about 15 minutes a game. But he has a certain cache, in that there's no chance in heck I'd be writing about Jed Feiman's candidacy if he was running with, say, Ace Factor.
"Henry and I are two student leaders from very different areas in the Georgetown community, and we've come together to unite the campus," Feiman told The Hoya. "Our opponents remind us...of the same GUSA candidates year after year, and we think we offer something new."
Indeed. Plus, by reading Sims's Twitter feed, I think he could come up with a platform many students would support. For example:
* Just took the best nap in the world! It was truly awesome.
* I now know how to make banana pudding and..... Well that's it lol I'm nice tho!
* If I was a professor I would not give any hw or readings. All learning would b based on experience alone lol. And the final would b a class trip to Vegas and have as much fun as possible. And if I don't feel like ur having enough fun. U fail.
That's like an electoral cash cow right there.
