“After serving in the United States Marine Corps, I never could have imagined feeling such a strong loyalty and connection to another institution until I became a student at UCF,” Milich said in a Facebook post.
“When you love something you want to see it become the greatest version of itself, and it is for that reason that I am running for Student Body President,” Milich continued.
Milich is a business management major and his involvement on campus includes Senator for the College of Business Administration, President of Phi Delta Theta 2014-2015, Chairman of the Golden Rule Review Committee and Greek Campus Leader of the Year 2015.
Sarlo is a political science major and President of College Republicans, a sister of Alpha Xi Delta, Field Director for Americans for Prosperity, Communications Director for Paulson for Mayor and a field director for other multiple consulting firms.
The Jake & Elaine campaign is running on the following platforms:
-Quality of life
The team is not affiliated with the Black and Gold Ticket or any SGA party. Jake & Elaine have chosen to be completely independent.
“We do not answer to any party, we only answer to the students,” Milich said.
Milich has already been fighting for a more transparent SGA as a Senator.
The SGA presidential candidate filed a resolution asking the state legislature to make clear that SGA records are not protected by FERPA. After his resolution was killed behind closed doors, Milich filed a court brief.
Voting will begin March 28-30 on MyUCF.
