Daley wins SGA elections

? The polls closed and the votes are in. Junior Connor Daley was elected the next SGA president, and junior Samantha Holland took vice-president March 22. Daley won by 300 votes with runner-up Mike White raking in 409 votes, said Melina Chaouch, member of the election committee. “I think it was really really awesome,” Daley said. “I’ve given quite a bit of time to UVM, and I’m excited to give more.” In his platform, Daley said that as president, he plans to make advising better, advertise more service opportunities for students, create an on-campus compost site and de-politicize SGA. Daley is a history major, cross-country ski instructor and member of the President’s Student Advisory Board. Holland is a neuroscience and psychology double major who ran for SGA to get more involved and see positive change, according to her platform on the SGA website. This election was the second most voted election in SGA history with 1,492 students participating, Chaouch said. Even with more than 10,000 undergraduate students, the most voted election took place in 2010 with only 1,510 students signing onto the Lynx.
