SGA freshmen election

After two days of voting, the five freshmen who won Student Government Association positions were announced the evening of Sept. 9.

A total of 407 votes were cast, and leading the way was John Jose with 135 votes.

The votes ranged from 135 for Jose to six for the write in candidate, Robert Hornung.

“I have big plans for this school,” Jose said. “I want more campus involvement and make the campus a better place.”

The other four freshmen who won seats in the SGA Senate were Daniel Morales (127 votes), Griffin Frank (124 votes), Michael Curtis (112 votes) and Erik Pederson (110 votes).

“I love to be involved with the school community and I saw SGA as a great way to do that,” Frank said. “I bring a unique leadership style and the connections I already have made to SGA.”

But not everyone could win a seat on the senate. With 15 freshman running and one write in, some had to fall short.

“I put it out there and it didn’t happen,” said Chaz Edwards, who finished seventh with 92 votes. “I might run again in the future, but we will just have to see.”
