So, the stud gov crowd is all a-whirl with discussion of who is running for Student Body President (SBP) this coming January- and, of course, who’s on who’s campaign. From the best of our sources, there are three confirmed candidates:
1. Mario Benavente
2. Mary Cooper
3. Rick Ingram
4. Cierra Hinton
It’ll be interesting to see how all this plays out. A few folks in Student Congress want to raise the signature threshold for SBP candidates from the current 1,000 to 1,500 possibly even 1,700, so it’ll be interesting to see if any candidates fall short- if it’s only the three or four mentioned above, I doubt it’ll have much impact.
But if one or two more come out of the woodwork, someone’s not going to make it.
UPDATE: Confirmation that Hinton is NOT in the running.
FURTHER UPDATE: Hinton herself confirmed that she is running.
