Student Center Gov. Board elections come to close
November 19, 2008 8:02 PM
The Student Center Governing Board elections are over and unofficial results are in.
Three students will join the board next semester to fulfill their two-year terms after the current board members officially ratify the results on their December 4th meeting.
Jacqueline Mendez pulled in the most support with 841 votes, Tyler Cornfield took the second seat with 700 votes, Paloma Dudum-Maya won the third seat, and a closely contested race, by 31 votes.
“It’s the largest voter turnout we’ve had in years,” said Lori Hostetter, secretary of the SCGB “Last year we got about seven or eight hundred votes… really low; almost equivalent to what the first place got this time.”
The Student Center Governing Board is responsible for the day-to-day operations of the Cesar Chavez Student Center including its facilities, services and programs such as negotiating vendor leases.
The board consists of 15 members: eight students, five that are elected and three that are appointed by ASI. Members of the faculty, administration and alumni fill the other seven seats.
Also running were Felipe Rivera, Philip Fabian, and Eyal Chistik. Fifty-five write-in candidates took in a total 66 votes.
