In the opening sentence of John F. Kennedy’s inaugural address, he states, “We observe today not a victory of party, but a celebration of freedom symbolizing an end, as well as a beginning signifying renewal, as well as change.” Kennedy’s quote characterizes my viewpoint on the transition that has undertaken the Student Government Association for the 2008-2009 school year.
Recently, several uninformed colleagues have expressed to me their discontent with the lack of publicizing of the outcome of this year’s SGA Elections. As Vice President Elect and with observance of the purpose of SGA to serve as “the official voice of the student body,” I would like to alleviate my fellow colleagues’ discontent by orienting the student body on the outcome of the 2008 SGA Elections.
