Meet the Candidates: Troyjea Kellup

Troyjea Kellup is a political science freshman running to be a senator for the College of Arts and Sciences. She has not held a previous role in SGA.


What role do you think the Senate should have in determining how elections are run?
I think they should have a more prominent role when it comes to elections.

Should senators be required to hold bi-semester town halls with the constituents from their college?
I don’t believe it should be required. However, I think it is a good way for senators to be more involved with their constituents. It is a great and direct way for the senators to learn about exactly what their constituents’ ideas and concerns are.  

If a large portion of the student body thinks their senators aren’t representing them properly, what should the students do?
The shoulds should suggest ways in which their senators can best represent them.

Why are you running for this position?
I am running for this position because I would like to become more active and involved in college and make my time here enjoyable, and hopefully provoke changes that too make my constituents’ time enjoyable.

If elected, what do you hope to accomplish as a senator for SGA?
If elected, I hope to accomplish changes that last a long time, so we have a stable body of government to refer to.

Why should students vote for you?
Students should vote for me because I plan to faithfully execute my duties to them as their senator. I will listen to their voices and find new and more efficient ways to respond to their needs.
