Aaron was vocal about his opinions and strived to open up honest communication and debate within the senate. This past year's Senate had one of the most active senate sessions, and this is in great part due to the initiatives Aaron sought and the legislation he pushed through.

With Aaron's vast experience on writing legislation, understanding budgets, collaborating with organizations, and being a strong voice of students, he hopes to continue the legacy of Student Government by facilitating fellow Senator's ideas into action over the course of the coming year and creating higher levels of acoutability.
