It’s true. Supervisor John Cook, a “Tea Party favorite,” currently represents the Braddock District of Fairfax County, which includes the campus of George Mason University. John Cook OPPOSED allowing students to vote on campus at our new polling place, University Hall. The College Republicans opposed this too!
On November 8th, 2011, we have the opportunity to elect sensible, progressive leaders who care about public higher education institutions such as George Mason University. Here’s how:
