As you all know, today is the beginning of ASUW elections. As an intern, service learner, and advocate for washPIRG I am pleading with you to vote yes for washPIRG! As mentioned in the Daily today, washPIRG works on many public interest issues such as fighting hunger and homelessness, bringing cleaner cars to Washington, and working hard for the reduction of textbook prices. Also noted by the Daily, voting for washPIRG is voting for choice. Our winning this election will keep our OPTIONAL $3 donation box on the registration page of myuw. Voting yes does not mean that you yourself are commiting to donating, you are simply making it so that any student, if they so choose, will be able to donate and give us the funding we need to continue our work.
WashPIRG is a NON-PARTISAN public interest group. We take all volunteers and all suggestions. We do our work for you, the students, and our surrounding community. We hope to make the world a great place, but if we don't get the votes we need, there will be no more washPIRG. This funding is crucial!!
PLEASE VOTE YES FOR WASHPIRG. WE ARE DEPENDENT ON IT!
