The results are in!

Before the Gubernatorial debate, candidate Alexandre (Alex) J. Coker thought it was going to be a closer race. In his first interview after the 829-375 loss to Governor Brent T. Knipper, Coker said he thought the race was really close before the debate, but a lot of the jokes and a lot of the humor that Mr. Knipper brought definitely changed the atmosphere. Cokers response to Knippers golf metaphor ignited a small battle of words and applause. Coker wanted to be seen as a candidate with a serious, straightforward attitude about the issues as opposed to Knippers more lighthearted approach. If we were campaigning [in front of] actual politicians, [they] wouldnt approve of all the jokes and no substance, he said. Coker suffered one of the largest losses in recent Buckeye Boys State history. Despite this, he said he would not change anything about his campaign. Continued on page 4

Boys Staters exercise their basic rights

by Cody Wintermute Tuesday kicked off a day long election fever that brought the efforts of the delegates campaigns to a head. The day began with the city and county elections as well as the state primaries. At least they would have if a computer glitch hadnt crashed the network, delaying the polls by almost an hour. Despite this hiccup in the system, the polls still saw a 100% turn-out among the population. As the Boys Staters were brought to their polling areas, they were greeted with a silence that took hold of the people in the room. No voter dared to speak during his participation in the most basic right of democracy. During the first round of voting this morning, city government (minus city council) and the state-level positions were selected. Later in the day, city councils and county roles were chosen. Over sixty candidates were running on the dual ticket for governor and lieutenant governor, but after the voting that list was narrowed to just four individuals: Alexandre Coker and Tyler Freeman on the Federalist ticket and Brent Knipper with Colton Haller for the Nationalists. A full list of the State primary victors can be viewed in the Offenhauer Towers Plaza as well as the Falcon Heights front window. With all of the elected positions now secured by capable individuals, the true Buckeye Boys State experience can begin. We can finally see elected officials in their natural environments of decision-making, leading, and budgeting. Hopefully, every young man here will be able to find himself in a role he enjoys and contribute to the success and spirit this week has left to offer.

Public Safety for the city of Stockner. As for his political convictions, he plans to keep it up and refine [my] issues, and hopes to use them at a later date in his life.

I feel like I had a strong enough argument with a lot of support behind it, and, like I said, again, if we were in front of real politicians I feel they would actually consider my issues. Cokers stance on education differed greatly from Governor Knippers. Coker put forth a plan to have the State take 75% of taxpayer money to spend on individual students while reserving the remaining 25% to provide school administrations with resources. Coker also suggested putting a 1% tax on cigarettes, alcohol and gambling, a position Knipper vehemently opposed. Even with the intensity of the debate, Coker wishes the governor well. I feel like [Knipper] is going to do just fine. He went on to call Knipper a really good guy. Alex Cokers time at Buckeye Boys State will be spent working in public service. He was chosen to be the Director of Public Service and
