Damian Sanchez

Senator At-Large

My name is Damian Sanchez, I am currently a second-year student majoring in Molecular and Cell Biology serving in the position, as senator, in ASUCM. I want to give students, an experience at UC Merced that they will not forget. For instance, I would like to fund clubs so that they have enough money for activities that they wish to do throughout the year. Events such as Treats and Beats and Cowchella are main events that a UC Merced student looks forward to every year, and I do believe that it does bring the UC Merced community together. I would also like to help stabilize the senate budget. In recent years, large amounts of money have been allocated to fund clubs and organizations and I am going to take a much more conservative approach to solve this issue. To simply put it, the senate needs to be more cautious about what is being funded, so that both the students enjoy their experience and the senate has enough money for funding or other purposes. Another goal of mine is to give all clubs similar treatment. Each club deserves the right to be funded, no club is more deserving than another and I hope to fulfill that during my time in office. As a result, I hope to provide students of the UC Merced community an opportunity to explore the campus by joining different communities and ultimately, bring all of the students, faculty, and organizations together.
