SPRING 2020 SPECIAL ELECTIONS CANIDATES
Dominique Ocampo | Running for Secretary
Aloha fellow UH students!
My name is Dominique Ocampo and I am a Senior at the University of Hawai’i at Manoa. I am under the Travel Industry Management school and I am majoring in Travel Industry Management with an emphasis in tourism and transportation. I am also from San Diego, California and served as a club president in my high school years. I enjoy adventuring the world, volunteering, taking photos, sharing my creativity & eating tacos. I am running for ASUH Secretary because as a senior, this is my last year and I want to make my mark by using my voice to make UH Manoa an even better place to grow for those who come after me. I will accomplish various duties that include helping with the overall direction, supervision, and coordination of the student government. I am also committed to represent students and what is best for all.
Marcus Holbert | Running for Senator of College Arts and Sciences
My name is Marcus Holbert and I am running for the Senate seat of the College of Arts and Sciences. I am currently in my final semester at the University of Hawai’i and plan to graduate in May with my B.A. in Comparative/ World History. I am running for office because I want the opportunity to serve this student body and give back to this amazing school before the end of my undergraduate career. One of the main issues my campaign will be focused on is the rising overall cost in attendance, meals, books, supplies, housing, and events around campus. The average cost of attendance is currently priced at roughly $28,613 with a $50,645 price tag for out of state students. I believe these costs are too high, and as your Senator I will do everything in my power to keep these prices from getting more out of control. I am also the only candidate who has worked in the U.S. Congress in Washington D.C.. I spent a year interning and studying under Congresswoman and Presidential Candidate Tulsi Gabbard. I am the only candidate with tangible Washington D.C. credentials and will bring that experience into office with me. I promise if elected to lead with Aloha and do everything I can to fight for
we, the students.
