Slogan:

Vote 4 David Ravitz

What have you done for the school already (including involvement in SGA)? 

Class Vice President; chairperson for blood drive; Varsity Basketball, Soccer and Volleyball

What are you hoping to change at East? 

I would like to get the students more involved.  It feels like nobody participates in school wide activities.  

What is your main priority? 

I really want to try to get the students more involved and hear what they have to say.  I am representing the students, so I should do what they want.

How will you accomplish these goals? 

As VP, I will try to set up meetings with administrators and teachers.  I also would like to meet with other students to see what they want done. 

Do the decisions of SGA affect the school?  Would you consider SGA involved in student life? 

SGA makes many decisions that affect all of the students.  I would like to get SGA more involved with students, but it is already heavily involved.

What do you like about East? 

I like the environment here at East.  The kids are great and the extracurricular activities are spectacular.

How are you different than other candidates?  Why should we vote for you? 

I can relate very well to other students.  I have very good leadership qualities and have good listening skills allowing me to figure out what other students want.

What extracurricular activities are you involved in? 

Varsity Basketball, Soccer, and Volleyball;

Blood Drive

; Sports Debate Club

What’s something most people don’t know about you, but you would like them to know? 

I am a very good leader.  I have been the captain of many sports teams and have the ability to lead a school.

Do you think East has enough school spirit?  If not, how would you, or would you not, address the lack of spirit? 

East does not have enough school spirit.  Although many people have showed up to a few events, it is not enough.  More “cool” activities need to be held.  Also, more people should try to attend athletic games.

Why did you decide to run for vice president? 

I want to be involved in making decisions for the school and have an understanding of what is going on.

What does the vice president actually do? 

The VP plans many activities and is one of the representatives to represent the whole student body.
