This year features an all-male contest for executive president and vice president, a departure from the gender diverse tickets of the last three years which saw two female executive presidents and one female executive vice president elected.
Daniel Stroie, GSB ‘17 and Elisha Simon, GSB ‘17 are running for executive president and executive vice president, respectively. The duo launched their website this afternoon. Stroie is the current VP of Finance and Simon is a GSB ’17 Senator.
The opposing executive ticket is comprised of executive president hopeful Sebastian Albrecht, FCRH ‘17, and vice presidential hopeful Matthew Santucci, FCRH ‘17. Albrecht is currently a FCRH ’17 Senator and Santucci is the VP of Fordham College Rose Hill.
Both tickets were made official to The Fordham Ram on Friday, April 8.
Five out of ten positions are contested, as well as most all senate positions. Last year, only seven of the nine board races were uncontested, including the executive ticket: Ashley Domagola and Nicholas Sawicki, both FCRH ‘16.
A Meet the Candidates is scheduled for Wednesday, April 13 at 6 p.m. and the 2016 USG Debate scheduled for 8 p.m., both in McGinley 237. Polls open on Thursday at 9 a.m. on OrgSync and close Friday at 5 p.m. As of Monday evening, the USG website had not updated its website with 2016 election information. Election results will be posted on social media.
