The Candidates for ASB President
Hi! My name is Courtney Hatch and I am running for ASB President.
For those of you who don't know me, I am 5' 4", with brown hair, brown eyes and my astrological sign is Aquarius. I also have red-hot tiger blood coursing through my veins.
I am a very hard worker, a strong leader and a dedicated student. I love this school!
I believe, I have the enthusiasm to make this next year amazing! Enthusiasm is excitement with inspiration, motivation and a bit of creativity. Enthusiasm is the sparkle in your eye. Enthusiasm is an irresistible surge of will to have fun! Enthusiasm makes cleaning toilets feel like heaven. Enthusiasm turns boredom to stardom. Enthusiasm, that's what keeps me going!
I was extremely proud to serve as your Junior Class President this year. I loved bringing spirit to our school through cheer and making you laugh through drama. I will listen to your suggestions and make sure that you, the voter, have a say in what we do next year here at Costa Mesa High School.
Now, you know that this year's ASB President, Alyssa Hatton, is one of my best friends, and I love her, but let's admit it, the economy hasn't improved, global warming is getting worse, the federal deficit is still growing and there were lots of natural disasters around the world. There needs to be change!
That is why you should vote for me, Courtney Hatch for ASB President. I'll bring that change! And what you should do Mesa is bring your ID cards tomorrow and VOTE HATCH for ASB President!!!!! And as always, "Go Mustangs!"
Hello Mesa, it’s that time of year again, where students like me, Eddie Villegas, run for ASB candidacy.
This school year has been filled with much excitement and I’m truly grateful for being given the opportunity to be your junior class Vice President, due to all your support.
This year I’m back, and running for ASB President, in case you didn’t know, the ASB President is in charge of handling/leading all the meeting and amazing student leaders. Because the job is so big, it means all grades can vote, that includes this year’s 8th- 11th Graders.
My mission is simple to use all resources available (such as my experience as this year’s Marching Band President, GSA President and being a southern California Youth Leadership Trainer) to make our school be the best it can be, whether that means improving student communication (between the ASB and various groups), better events, or an overall better school surrounding.
This year, I have worked and succeeded in fulfilling my promises, and if elected ASB president, I will do the same and much more. After all, this is your school, Costa Mesa, and it should offer the best years of your life, that includes those of you who have 4 years left and even those of us who have one year left, my goal is to make it the best, but I can’t do it without your support. So please feel free to ask me questions, so I can incorporate all you ideas.
Remember to bring your ID cards tomorrow and come vote either at Nutrition or Lunch. Thank you and remember, have you Got Ed?
