School president, senior class vice president races still contested
After Blazers completed casting their votes for Student Government Association (SGA) positions on Tuesday and Wednesday, the new officers for the 2009-2010 school year were announced today during second period.
Election results for the SGA presidential race between juniors Alex Bae, Sibyl Brown and Andrew Hyder and the vice presidential race for the class of 2010 between juniors Karre Lawson and Olayinka Oladiran have been withheld due to ongoing disputes over misconduct.
The results of the election were petitioned because some candidates allegedly violated election rules by offering "incentives" to voters. The candidates contested the petition because they allegedly did not receive a copy of the election rules and were unaware of policies banning this practice. According to Bae, a reelection for the two positions will be held sometime in the next three weeks.
The election results are as follows, according to current SGA president junior Sibyl Brown:
Vice President: Mady Nadje, junior
Secretary: To be appointed
Treasurer: Naimisha Mahesh, junior
Class of 2010:
President: Tamara Taylor
Class of 2011:
President: Christina Stiles
Vice President: Hannah Ho
Class of 2012:
President: Nebiyu Fitta
Vice President: Bruce Yuen
