Voting closed tonight for the 2017 Associated Students elections. We’re here in Montezuma Hall surrounded by tons of students who are excited to see who their elected representatives for the next year will be. Armed with campaign T-shirts and stickers supporters for all A.S. candidates anxiously awaited the results of this year’s election after voting closed March 17. We spoke to supporters and candidates to see how they felt just minutes before winners were announced. I’m a little nervous about tonight. Um, I think it’s gonna be an extremely close race Um, there’s four great candidates out there for president and I believe that, you know, it’s going to come to whoever put in the most work and you know, the people who put in the most to their campaigns and I truly believe whoever it is is gonna have the best interests of students. It’s gonna be close. I’m super proud of what me and my team have been able to accomplish over these last two weeks and I just couldn’t be more proud of all of us and really, the effort we’ve given to this campaign and trying to serve students so I’m really excited. The elections committee named all the college and committee representative winners but when it came down to the top executive positions, one thing was clear: Team Transform had won it all. Emotions ran wild among their supporters, filling the room with cheers. Despite the tears of joy, the newly elected A.S. officials said they are ready to get to work. Oh my god, first thing I’d want to do is get this diversity talks these– the– series that I want to bring, implementing tangible TED talks like, people that are nationally recognized diversity speakers. Bring them to our campus. Kind of diversify where we want to go how many you want to bring I want to initiate that series starting orientation. Starting August– August when students get on campus, I want that to be starting. I want those conversations to be had. I want the organizations be a part of those conversations and really understanding, like, what issues are going on so students have peace of mind when they come to San Diego State. Those who did not win said they still feel confident about SDSU’s future. Our movement doesn’t stop here. It’s never been just about winning exec. It’s been about showing that there’s a voice for all students no matter what happens. Whether we’re in those positions or not, we will make our goals happen as a team. I still think I’m definitely going to be involved next year. Um, we’re just going to have to see. I’ll have to look at the different options but I’ll definitely still be involved. Because even, like, a lot of the goals that I had running, I still want to make those happen even if I am not VPUA, but I still want to make those happen. For The Daily Aztec, I’m Mackenzie Boss.
