Pl. Schlupp
------------
Br. Bagwell: He's a smart guy. He's not an upper-classman yet and doesn't know everything about his major's classes yet but he's comfortable with working with people and will help you find him. He would be able to continue Br. Boles 1-on-1.

----------

-----------

Br. Talaese
-----------
Br. Senkowski: He is great at cooking but hates dealing with people.
Br. Talaese: It is one of the things I'm good at. I've been thinking about it. I was unethusiastic about it, primarily because of the last time I cooked Chapter Dinner. Thank you whoever nominated me. I'll cook anyway.
Br. Rowe: Even he doesn't win, I would like him to help the Steward. He's a good cook.
*Br. Boles: As a memeber of meal plan, what will you be doing?
*Br. Talaese: Being in charge of it. What do you mean>
*Br. Boles: Will you work with people reasonably and come down on people who don't?
*Br. Talaese: Of course.

Br. Senkowski
-------------
Br. Talaese: Vote for Senkowski. I don't want to do it but I would be heavily involved. More often then not he would help me cook. He's also more senior and knows how it should be run. He can correctly delegate.
*Br. Boles: My concern is availability. How often will you make an effort to show up?
*Br. Senkowski: Since a lot of things have been done last minutes lately, if it's done well, scheduling before hand would be done and late dinners shouldn't be a problem.
Br. Senkowski: And more cookies.

Br. Wilson
----------
Br. Rowe: Steward is one of those offices that takes a lot of delegation; Sam is good at that. If you don't delegate, you will burn out by the end of the semester. And since he's leaving at the end of the semester, he will groom someone else to hold his position.
Br. Stone: I think it's important that Sam has a position. Steward is a position that an idiot can run, so he can do it well.
Br. Roberson: Steward is making sure food is there, making sure people are there to cook and clean, not to cook. I think he can do that.
Br. Bagwell: Steward will be working with House Manager on buying items.
Br. Lavelle: Steward needs a car, and as far as I know, he doesn't have a car.
Br. Boles: I am willing to help Steward in getting him to move.
Br. Senkowski: There have been great Stewards in the past that haven't owned a car.
Br. Kincheloe: You will be managing food, finances, and people. If you feel motivated, revamping the system that it works will be great. It currently needs a lot of work. I don't endorse anyone specifically. I don't think that there is a problem.
Br. Wilson: I don't own a car but the main point is to get everyone organized. I've been here since Br. Eyster. I know what he did to make sure it went down. I do need help with getting groceries and such. I feel that any one of us can do it. If I get elected I will make sure things run for the next person.

Br. Bruce moves to close debate; seconded.
Br. Bruce calls to question; seconded.

Br. Wilson wins Steward.
