THE NEWS

  • With election season in full swing, New Haven’s two candidates for Ward 1 are operating at full speed to win Yalies’ votes this November. Republican Paul Chandler ’14 will challenge incumbent and Democrat Sarah Eidelson ’12. Ward 1, which includes Yale undergraduates except those living in Morse, Ezra Stiles, Silliman and Timothy Dwight Colleges and Swing Space, has not seen a Republican candidate run for the aldermanic seat in 20 years. With under two months until the election, both candidates are stepping up campaign efforts.
  • Though construction crews have been diligently working on the corner of 1 Broadway throughout the summer, a tenant has yet to pick up the prime retail location. There are currently three construction companies working on the project, refacing the facade, improving the windows and walls and repairing the roof, according to Tony Santangelo, general manager of one of the companies, Universal Preservation Group. Though the construction companies are hard at work, they are completing only general repairs and not working for a specific tenant, according to Santangelo and representatives from University Properties, which manages Yale’s commercial properties.
  • The women’s volleyball team spent the weekend in the nation’s capital competing in the Pentagon against strong teams across the nation. Playing in the Service Academy Challenge, the Elis (4–2) faced off against two of the national service academies, Air Force and Army, as well as No. 8 Stanford. The Bulldogs prevailed over Air Force and Army by scores of 3-0 and 3-1, respectively, but fell to the Cardinal in three sets.
