There is one empty Senate-at-Large seat, one empty Class of 2018 representative seat, two empty class of 2019 representative seats, an empty Athlete seat, no Class of 2019 Vice President, and no Class of 2020 Secretary, accounting for seven empty SGA positions that can be filled in the fall alongside the entirety of the positions allocated to the incoming class of 2021.
In addition to becoming the new Treasurer for the Class of 2020, Senator Jacob Vitali was named Parliamentarian for the fall semester.
“Being named the next Parliamentarian of Student Government Association is an absolute honor and a privilege,” Vitali said. “My appointment comes at a time SGA needs strong leadership to deliver very real changes to our campus community. I will do all that I can to ensure that students of all backgrounds are included in my decisions, especially as we consider amendments to our Constitution and By-laws. I am immensely excited to be working alongside President Giffen, EVP Munoz, and CVP Cook to truly make this organization representative and inclusive of all. I know that our collaboration will see solutions to the problems we have heard so much about.”
During one of the few contested races, Trevor Wheelock beat the incumbent Adazae Shepard-Edwards for SGA’s Greek Seat. Wheelock is a member of the Pi Upsilon Pi fraternity.
Senate-at-Large had six newcomers, with Fabby Street being the only Senator to return to her position this fall. Senators LaJuan Allen and A.J. Cote did not appear on the ballot this election.
“I want to thank all those who supported me as I took out nomination papers, ran, and eventually earned the Senate at Large position,” Andrew Baillargeon, a senate newcomer, said. “I will strive to fill the position to the best of my ability. Right now, my primary interests are in improving student relationships with ARAMARK as well as improving SGA’s public image to the student body. I am well aware that there is a lot of work to be done, but I couldn’t be happier to accept that and get down to business.”
New Student Trustee Stephanie Collins and Commuter Seat Drew Burdick won their positions through write-in campaigns. Both positions lacked balloted candidates.
