SGA Senate ResultsBy Heather Buchanan | 03/12/2015 10:21pm
Forty-three University of Alabama students were elected to the SGA Senate in Tuesday’s election. The election results included no senator chosen to represent the Law School and a tie for the sixth College of Engineering Seat.
A run-off election between Alexandrea Friar and Jethro Torczon will be held Thursday to determine the sixth Engineering senator. Other senators elected to the Engineering Senate are Cassie Clifton, Jack Grantham, Kever Lewis, Reid Ruggles and Jon Vincent.
Kelli Knox-Hall, SGA Elections Board Advisor, said the Elections Board is addressing the lack of Law School senatorial candidates.
“The Law School did not have any students apply in advance to run for the position but there were a few write-ins that garnered enough votes for a seat,” Knox-Hall said. “The Elections Board is working on contacting the individuals and certifying their credentials for the position. In addition, the Board is confirming their willingness to serve in the position.”
Knox-Hall also said four of the six the Graduate School senate seats were still empty after elections. The Graduate School elected two senators, Rebecca Rose Lutonsky and Landon Nichols, Jr. Knox-Hall said the Elections Board will handle this situation similarly to the situation in the Law School Senate
