Student Government Association (SGA) President Andrew Hare stepped down from his position on August 23. The resignation was due to undisclosed personal reasons. Vice President of Finances Chase Slenker said that responsibilities are being shared among the other officers to better distribute the workload. Slenker will be speaking at the SGA Open House in place of the president.
Slenker also shared that there are only 10 sitting senators, with 18 open seats in the senate. Along with the presidential ballot, there will be senate positions available to anyone who is interested. When voting, if you’re interested in joining the senate, you can write in. Slenker said that this year is very much dedicated to rebuilding SGA, and part of that includes filling out senate positions. It is a low-stakes, high-reward position, with a minimum requirement of attending one monthly meeting and one biweekly meeting.
SGA elections will be held on Monday, September 18. The presidential position will be on the ballot. Until election results are certified, the interim president is Kennedy Holt, whose official position is the Vice President of Internal Affairs, the VP of Internal Affairs is next in line after the president. Holt has been presiding over SGA meetings as interim president.
