Student Government Elections yields thrills and disappointment.

SC4 Student Brian Heidt, had a beaming smile on his face last Wednesday night when he was told that he had won the position of Treasurer for SC4’s student government. Brian, who was a write in candidate, won the position with 96 votes. “I’m just thrilled that I won,” Brian said happily.

The Student Government Elections took place in the SC4 Cafeteria on Tuesday and Wednesday of last week. Unfortunately, the election only yielded just over 100 votes, making it the lowest vote count in SC4 history.

The second write in candidate, other than Heidt, was Jessica Fye, a write in for Secretary who took home the position with eight votes.

Unlike the other positions, the position for Vice President featured two candidates. They were SC4 students Eric Merril, who ended up with 51 votes, and Steven Dilloway, who won with 20 more votes.

After the votes were tallied, Steven said, “As a student of SC4, I have a new found respect for our community’s access to learning. After enrolling for four semesters at SC4, I understand what it takes to be a successful college student. With that said, I believe that I am more than capable to be a representative of the student body. All in all, I look forward to working with the student government an attempt to better the SC4 environment.”

Last but not least, the position of Student Government President went to candidate Sean Lathrop. Sean ran unopposed for the position. Sean had this to say about his 94 vote victory: “I am severely disappointed that no one is running against me. I feel that Michael Keith could have possibly been a better president than myself. But since he was unable to run it makes me feel that this is a hollow victory for me.”
