After weeks of anticipation, the results are in for the Associated Student Government elections.
Brett Baker was elected student body president and Jason Moore was elected student body vice president. They were both elected with about 58 percent of the vote over challengers Courtney Strange and C.J. Morgan in this week’s runoff election.
Baker is ASG’s chief of staff and Moore is a senator. Courtney Strange is the current president of the College Democrats and C.J. Morgan is the Liaison to the San Marcos City Council. “I hope C.J. and Courtney stay involved. They have done a lot of good work for the university,” said Alexis Dabney, student body vice president.
A three way race earlier in the month decided the two tickets that would face each other in the runoff election.
“It was an interesting few weeks. Everyone worked hard and did a really good job,” said Dabney.
“We had a lot of qualified candidates, so it would have been good no matter what happened,”she added.
Baker and Moore will take office on June 1 to serve for the 2008 to 2009 school year. According the Baker and Moore’s campaign, their goals for the 2008-2009 school year is to empower students, build bridges between the university faculty and the students, and take Bobcats to a new level of excellence.
January is the start of a Texas Legislative session, bringing an opportunity for state and university relations. During the last legislative session, the Associated Student Government worked for the passage of the Athletic Service Fee and for implementation of tax-free textbooks.
The Baker and Moore ticket was endorsed by many campus groups including: Student Foundation, Inter Fraternity Council, Pan-Hellinic Council, Ducks Unlimited, Texas Trophy Hunters, Greeks Advocating the Mature Management of Alcohol, and Bobcat Fans Magazine.
