The national election is finally over, but the City College election season is almost underway. On April 4-5, students who are enrolled this semester will be able to vote for their future Student Associated Council members. The new leaders will stay in office for a year, beginning July 1, 2017.

Before the election, students may hear the candidates’ campaign speeches on Tuesday, March 28, and Thursday, March 30, from noon to 12:50 p.m. in the Quad. This will be the first opportunity for students to learn about the candidates. Next week on April 4, there will be an election promotions barbeque (also in the Quad) from 11:30 a.m. until the food runs out.

The candidates’ names and their political platforms are not public information until March 28. Requirements for joining the Student Senate are that you must be enrolled in at least five units, maintain a 2.0 GPA or greater, avoid academic probation and attend training.

Interim faculty coordinator for Student Leadership and Development Deborah Knowles would like to encourage students to participate in the school’s democratic process.

“Students have an opportunity to have a strong voice, and yet only a handful act by voting,”  Knowles said.

The Student Associated Council on campus is made up of two bodies: the Student Senate and the Clubs and Events Board. The Student Senate includes a president, vice president, treasurer, president pro-tempore, and secretaries for the offices of legislative affairs, public relations, technology and sustainability, as well as up to 20 senators. The council meets weekly to make decisions about issues around campus.
