Students say SBA should address concerns

By Perry Brothers

New Editor

and Jenniler Smith
(."dmpro Editor

Ifhistory is any indicator, only
a fraction of the student body will
vote in the Student Government
Association elections that begin
tomorrow. Last year's turnout was
considered high even though
nearly 21,000 students stayed
away from the polls.


According to .1 Kentucky Ker—
nel poll of 75 students, it's because
SGA does not address the needs
and concerns of its constituents.

“The SGA should exrst to help

students get what they want from

the L'niversity," said Lisa I'Iobson,
.i biology sophomore “For exam—
ple, student prograriis and cariipus
safety. It should benefit all stui
dents, not just specific groups, but
the University as a whole. I can't
think of a thing they've done this
year that's benefited me."

So what issues should SUA
tackle to benefit the students?

Seven recurring issues surfaced
during the student interviews:
campus safety, parking, tuition
increases, financial aid, liood Ser—
vices, residence hall policies and
S( SA spending.

Campus Salety

lIobson said safety is one of her

primary concerns. She stressed


I can ‘t think of

a thing they’ve

done tbisyem'

that’s benefited
me. ’

the need for more
phones and better
lighting on campus.

Lexington Commu-
nity College social
work freshman Delmar
Black also said she is
concerned about a lack
of adequate campus

“The safety of caiii—
pus should be
improved N I have
heard friends say men
have chased them at
night," she said.
“There isn't enough
lighting. I don't even

mess around here at night."

.lennnifer Brack, an undeclared
LCC sophomore, attends
evening classes. She


said she feels unsafe on

However, Trent

Instead of adding new lights
and phone boxes, \Vinlock said.
the candidates should consider
finding ways to prevent and deter
vandalism of property on campus.
Ile said he knows many people
who have had their cars broken
into and vandalized.

Smiling, happy Chaney thinks ticket has ‘a lot to otter'

By Brenna Reilly
Sta/f I'Vrm'r

It is very rare to see Shea Chaney without a smile
on his face.

“My friends always tell me that I'm always smil-
ing. I like that," said Chaney, a Student Government
Association presidential candidate.

Chaney, who grew u ) in tiny Pine Knot, Kv., just
outside Somerset, said t at’s because he‘s usually in a
good mood.

“It takes a lot to get me in a bad mood, but once
I’m in a bad mood I'll just to for the problem and
try to solve it," Chaney said w ile drinking coffee at a
downtown coffee shop.

He grew up in a traditional nuclear family. Ilis
parents have been married for 27 years. Ilis brother,
Chad, is a sophomore at Eastern Kentucky Universi—

“I love the way I was brou rht up, and I hope I can
give my kids the same kintfrif environment,” the

rst—year law student said. “I have the best )arents in
the world. They are so supportive of everyt ing I do.
They are never pushy."

Being involved in politics is nothing new to
Chaney — he was president of his high school senior

“I wasn’t quiet in high school by any stretch of the
imagination," he said. “I was pretty involved with

Although Chaney has run for offices in high
school and college, he said this election will be his
last. It's the negative aspects of campaigning that
bother him.

Chaney wants to be a lawyer. He said he wants to
combine two ofhis interests to make his career.

“()ne of my biggest things is I‘m an environmen-
talist," Chaney said. “\Vhat I want to do is get an
environmental law consulting company, where I
could help companies meet environmental regula-

Althou ’h he doesn't like everythin about cam-
paigning, he has learned a few positive t ings.

“((Zainpaigning) gives you an extra confidence. I
feel like I could go up and talk to anybody now, abso-
lutely anybody," Chaney said.

Chaney has fun joking with people about his
unusual first name.

“It‘s always fun to tell people I was born in Shea
Stadium in the middle the ninth inning ofan All-Star

ame," Chaney said. Actually, his full name is
i Iichael Shea, “but Michael is my dad, so I go by
Shea. My mom is the only one that calls me Michael

Chaney said the reason he is so active is he has .i
lot of energy. “I'm always up for doing something. I
hate sitting around and being bored."

Also, he said, he is known for being spontaneous.
He often does things on the spur ofthe moment.

“We left for Mardi (iras one night. \Ve were at
Steak Fest at like midnight and were, like, ‘Iley. let's
go to Mardi Grits.‘ we took off. \Ve packed that
night and left," Chaney said.

One of the main reasons he decided to stay at UK
for law school was his friends.

“I’m happy. I really like my life like it is right now
— I like UK, I like the school, I like my friends," he

\Vhen faced with a problem Chaney said he
always takes a direct approach.

“I like to hit things head on," he said. “I think it's
always better to have a confrontation early than to
have one late and let it fester around for a while. I
think if you let problems simmer, it just makes them

Althou h Chaney has been involved with SGA
since his fgeshman year, he said he never planned to
run for president.

“It's something I never thought I would do, but I
really think that Heather (Hennel) and I have a lot to
offer,” he said.
