Students split in support of Sanders

January 19, 2016

Alan Friederwitzer, is an 18-year-old college student, but he’ll be voting for a 74-year-old Jewish man in the upcoming election. And he hopes you do too. Bernie Sanders, a self described democratic socialist, even has an on-campus club supporting the candidate — Owls for Bernie, with Friederwitzer acting as the club’s president. Through organized viewing parties, promoting in the Breezeway, getting students registered and fundraising, the club hopes to get Sanders elected. “There are issues only he can tackle,” Friederwitzer said. “Whatever you are — conservative or liberal — we should all agree that we need less corporate involvement. We need military expenditure reform, criminal justice reform, Wall Street reform … and these should not be debatable.”
