My name is Yash Nagpal, a Biology/Political Science double major running to be YOUR next Internal Vice President with the Isla Vista Party!
During my time in AS, I’ve had the opportunity to work on many platforms I ran on, such as adding better bike parking structures (ex. at the library). I am the first & only senator at UCSB to ever address the concerns of our outdated dining commons system by starting a discussion with HDAE (phase 1 of this large project).
As one of the few students in the past few years who has run with two different campus parties, I want to ensure that party politics never prevent AS from carrying out the work we do! Throughout my current term, I have always voted for what I believe in, rather than voting along party lines. I am an issues-based voter, not someone who blindly votes along party lines
