SGA ticket announced
Correction (4/17): Becky Wiacek is the SGA’s Director of Student Groups, not a senator. Also, there are only 18 of the 25 senatorial positions open for this election.
After a long string of contested Student Government Association elections, there is only one ticket running for the SGA executive board this season.
Current SGA Vice President Kevin Kutner, who will be running for president, heads the one ticket, STREAK.
“I’m running for SGA President because I know I’m able to make a positive impact on Towson’s campus, as well as be the best representative on the state and local level for Towson students,” Kutner said in an email.
Becky Wiacek, the SGA’s current director of student groups, is running for vice president, Joanna Enoch is up for treasurer and Bayan Rustom is running for the position of attorney general.
Kutner said Gayon Sampson, who is the current SGA chief of staff, will be running for the same position this year. However, Sampson’s name was not listed on the official list of candidates given to The Towerlight by SGA.
“I’m extremely excited to officially announce my candidacy for president, as well as the candidacy of the incredible leaders that are on the STREAK ticket,” Kutner said in the email. “I picked my ticket based on the qualities of the individuals and how they would fit in to their position. Having been on SGA the past three years I’ve seen the types of people that succeed on the executive board and what it takes for them to be great.”
This is the first election in recent years that has been uncontested. It is currently unclear if this is the first ever uncontested election, however.
Despite the lack of executive- board candidates, there are 42 candidates for senator. Currently, there are 25 senator positions in the SGA, but only 18 of the positions are open for this election.
Elections will be held on April 22 and 23, with the winners being announced on the 23rd.
