Secretary of Legislative Affairs Melody Jimenez was appointed April 20 as the potential City College Student Senate 2016-2017 president after winning a Senate vote over two of her peers.

Jimenez said she is looking forward to the possibility of serving as Senate president.

“I think ‘excited’ is a good word for me to use,” Jimenez said.

Two candidates were nominated alongside Jimenez: Husham Haroun, who previously has served as secretary of technology, vice president and senator; and Raymond Concha, a current senator who was recently elected to serve as vice president in the fall. Jimenez was appointed from the pool of three nominees after winning the Senate’s majority vote.

“I think she is very deserving of it,” Haroun said. “I’m driven, but not as driven as her.”

The meeting was designed for Student Senate members to nominate and vote for candidates for Senate President, while allowing for input and questions from other students who attended. The appointment process for a Student Senate president was necessary because no student candidate ran for president in the recent elections held in early April.

Concha said he expected to be considered a potential candidate for president, given how low the voter turnout was.

“I was kind of counting on it being bigger, but it didn’t happen,” Concha said.

Ansel Chan, current Senate vice president, ran the meeting in President Marianna Sousa’s absence. Chan explained that, at a previous meeting, the Senate voted against the idea of allowing the vice president to fill the role of president. The Senate decided instead to allow students to nominate candidates, one of whom is appointed through a Senate vote. Interim President Michael Poindexter has the final say in confirming or denying the Senate president after the 2016-2017 board reviews him or her.

Upcoming events were also announced at the meeting, including a May 5 Clubs and Events Board vs. Senate competition at People’s Day, according to CAEB Project Coordinator Georgia Sherman.
