Since working as UCF Student Government’s Governmental Affairs Coordinator, Zak has been able to render important information to expand the student body's interests at the local, state, and federal levels of government. Zak has a level of fluency and understanding of government that is unmatched in this race. To ignore the actions of government at a public institution is inconceivable, which is exactly why our team have developed a basic action plan to promote both our civic engagement efforts on campus and our advocacy efforts in Tallahassee concerning pertinent legislation to the student body.
Our campaign will prioritize the importance of relaying student interests to relevant leaders in Central Florida and the movers and shakers of politics in Tallahassee. while the most desired results in politics can often work slowly, our campaign can assure the student body that we will remain steadfast and our commitment to delivering on a necessary agenda concerning governmental affairs and civic engagement.
