Candidates for Student Association Executive Cabinet will present speeches today, Feb. 14 in the Iles P.E. Center at 11 a.m. Following speeches, voting will open to narrow those running for SA president from four to two.
Those speaking will include the four presidential candidates: Tiago Ferreira, Mark Galvez, Eveling Grajales and Delaney Harris, and the sole candidates running for Executive Vice President, Luis Moreno, and Social Vice President, Maddy Thomas.
In order to vote in today’s primary election, all students taking at least six credits–including those studying abroad–will receive an email with a personalized link to submit a ballot.
The final two candidates for president, in addition to those running for vice president positions, will be available to the public on Tuesday, Feb. 19 in a press conference at 7 p.m. The event will be held in Thatcher Chapel and students are invited to ask questions about the candidate’s plans if elected.
Eligible students were notified by the office of Student Development last week on Tuesday, Feb. 5 that their platforms were approved. In order to run for office, students must meet certain criteria including a GPA requirement and “maintain a record of good citizenship,” according to the student handbook.
Last week the Southern Accent ran the platforms for all candidates which can also be found at southern.edu/accent. The Accent will continue up-to-date coverage on all three of its social media platforms (@sauaccent on Instagram, @Southern_Accent on Twitter, @the.southern.accent on Facebook.)
