On March 26, Tom Soussou and Sean Dolan won the Student Government Association election for president and vice president. The results of the runoff election between the Soussou/Dolan ticket and the ticket of James Capurro and Juliana Moccio were announced on that afternoon outside of Connelly.
The first round of the election took place on March 21 and 22. The two other tickets in the original election were Chris Major and Gabrielle Bruno and Justin Knoebel and Marla Mollenkamp.
For Senior Class Council, Maggie Smith was elected president, Minn Kim will be vice president and Katie Bayeux was elected class representative. Doug Jadis won for president of the Junior Class Council. For Sophomore Class Council, Shant Marootian won for president, Adi Alphonso was elected vice president and Win Su will serve as the class representative.
Laura Boisclair was elected engineering senator and Joseph Brady, Ryan Gatti and Robbie Stover all won for the VSB senator position.
There were 1473 votes cast in the runoff election for president and vice president, which was about 200 less votes than the first round of voting. When Soussou and Dolan heard the results, Soussou said “I was really surprised, really shocked in a good way.”
Soussou is a junior chemical engineering major and has served on the Dining Services committee of SGA for the past two years. He is also a student representative to Physical Facilities Committee for the Board of Trustees and is the president of the Hellenic Student Association.
Dolan is a junior economics and political science major. He was on the community affairs committee of SGA during his sophomore year and is a member of the Special Olympics committee and the Blue Key Society.
The duo is ready to get started, with the ideas they outlined during the campaign.
“We ran on realistic ideas and real change,” Dolan said.
One of these ideas was to modify the Wildcat Newswire emails that students receive daily. They would like to change the Newswire so that all students could choose what type of information they would like to see. Students would be able to change the filters throughout the school year. Soussou and Dolan have discussed the proposal
