Hi there! I'm Max Flynn, and I am running for the position of President of our Students’ Union. As a College Chair I have already had the opportunity to meet and work with some amazing people and create unforgettable memories. Throughout my time involved with the Students’ Union I have seen many positive changes and I want to develop these further to try and provide the greatest student experience ever.
My goals for the year can be split into three large policy groups; student events, affordability and health.
We all know with over 200 societies at York and a collegiate system, York has lots of great student events on offer but I believe YUSU can do much more to support and publicise them. I will:
York is not a cheap University to study at. I believe YUSU can be doing a lot more to hold the University to account and reduce costs for students. I will:
Mental and Physical Health
York is going through a mental health crisis, while recent news of the 500k of funding can help alleviate this long term, I believe we need action NOW. I will:
Why am I different from the usual YUSU candidates?
Over the next few weeks, you'll be seeing a lot of all the candidates around campus. We'll be in your lectures, on your doorstep and asking to vote for them as you walk around campus. The difference with me is that I won't stop once the campaign's over.
If you elect me as President, I won't vanish behind a desk as soon as the Summer ends. I'll keep up the campaign energy all year, taking the time and effort to talk to as many students as possible, to get to know you all, and understand your needs and concerns. I promise, if you vote FLYNN 4 THE WIN, you won't regret it!
