WSA Election Results

The WSA election results have been announced.

Harik beats out Emerick for presidency

Danielle Harik defeated Josh Emerick to become WSA President. She got 56% of the vote.

All the candidates for college senator on the ballot were elected.

The nonbinding referendum on the SAF tax increase passed with 65% of the vote. About 7% of Western students actually voted. That means that about 5% of Western students voted to support the SAF increase, 2% opposed it, and 93% did not vote. This is hardly a mandate for higher taxes. The more concentrated interest groups that receive the SAF turned out to vote. Hopefully, the Board of Trustees won't go along with them.
