Nick Gumas and Avra Bossov were the big winners during Thursday night’s SA election results.
Gumas, a Junior from New York and current Columbian College SA Senator, beat fellow SA Senator Daniel Egel-Weiss (U At-Large), a Junior from Chicago, 74-26%.
Bossov, a Junior from New Jersey, was able to capture the EVP Office by winning 59% of the vote compared to Junior and Elliot School Senator Chris Stillwell who received 23% and Sophomore Paul Lisbon who received about 15% of the vote. Bossov will now move to the Senate after spending the last two years as a member of the SA Executive Cabinet, where currently she is the Deputy Chief-of-Staff to SA President Julia Susuni.
Other major winners included Liz Moses, who became the next Program Board Chair by beating Avery Jaffe 60-40%. The race marked the first time in many years that there had been a competitive race for the position.
Omeed Firouzi won re-election as an Undergraduate At-Large Senator and current Columbian College Senator Ben Pryde will fill the other seat that had been held by Egel-Weiss. Both Firouzi and Pryde beat out William “Willy” Hanna for the two seats.
With no Senators running for re-election, the Columbian College will have six new Senators next year. This includes Victoria Goncalves, who was the top vote getter, along with Nancy Mannebach, Damonta Morgan, Sean Kumnick, Casey Syron, and Thomas Falcigno.
The School of Business elected two new Senators tonight with Christina Giordano and Carlo Wood beating a pool of three other candidates for the two seats. Meanwhile, Varsha Sundararaman won re-election as an Elliot School Senator and was again the top vote getter in the school. Caroline Bourque and Sherin Nassar will be joining her in the Senate.
The Engineering School will have a new Senator with the election victory of Zachary Graybill.
Gumas, Bossov, and the new Senate will officially take office around May 1st.
