Candidate Statement

My name is Austin Montelius and I am excited to announce my candidacy for CLAS Staff Council. As a graphic and web designer with over six years in CLAS, I am well-aware of the challenges faced by staff members, and I will advocate for their welfare. If elected, I plan to advocate for the following issues:

  • Advocacy: Every staff member is vital to the success of CLAS, and I believe everyone's voice should be heard. If elected, I will work to ensure that all staff members are represented, and their concerns are addressed.
  • Compensation: I believe staff members deserve to be recognized for their hard work and dedication. If elected, I will push for fair and equitable compensation that rewards staff members for their contributions.
  • Well-being: It is crucial staff members feel valued, supported, and empowered in their roles. If elected, I will work to promote a positive and inclusive work environment that fosters the well-being of all staff members.

I am committed to serving CLAS and making it a place where staff members can thrive personally and professionally.
