Skidmore News Endorses Dylan Quinn for Junior Class President
The Skidmore News announces its endorsement for Dylan Quinn as Junior Class President. After hearing from him and his competitor, Hannah Zinker, the Editorial Board feels optimistic about Quinn’s potential in the SGA. He offers concrete policies to improve Skidmore internally in addition to improving its image. By increasing student community service involvement, Quinn believes students can better the Saratoga community and commit to an altruism that will have positive affects for Skidmore’s national competitiveness. Quinn also expressed his willingness to work hard for a diverse range of students, which The Skidmore News found especially convincing given his involvement on the Executive Board of the Honors Forum and with the athletic community as a former Varsity Baseball player. Quinn also spoke about his idea to create more late night options for students, such as a small convenience store in the Northwoods parking lot or a re-opened pub in Falstaff’s. He believes that with Junior Ring completed, the Junior Class President will have time to focus on other priorities. The Skidmore News is optimistic that Quinn, a self-proclaimed “political outsider,” is capable of increasing transparency and introducing new priorities to the Student Government.
Editors Note: Dylan Quinn served as Sports Editor for the Skidmore News in the Spring of 2016
