Let me introduce Javier Solas, who is running for president of the student council. As than Liu, last year's president, said " I can't imagine voting for anyone but Javier. He's clearly the best-qualified candidate. Nearly every other member of last year's student council has endorsed him, as well. Most of you know that when Javier arrived in this country a few years ago, he didn't know a word of English. Now he speaks English fluently. Shouldn't that determination be rewarded? Not only that, but Javier is an Eagle Scout and the editor-in-chief of the school newspaper Hi ability to lead is an unparalleled vote for Javier.
