Results to the LSA Student Government election were released Friday afternoon, formally announcing LSA junior Nicholas Fadanelli as president, and LSA junior Ryan Gillcrist as vice president. A total of 13 candidates ran for 13 LSA representative positions, and they were all elected.

Both Fadanelli and Gillcrist ran unopposed, but they said they are excited about their future in the position as president and vice president, respectively.

“We are both ecstatic about the results and we are very excited to be able to work next year with the rest of LSA Student Government and with the newly elected representatives to continue our mission to try to put students first,” Fadanelli said.

Fadanelli also said he is looking forward to working with the newly elected representatives, noting that most of the newly elected representatives already have experience working with LSA Student Government.  

“I feel a lot of the newly elected representatives have been in other positions in LSA Student Government up to this point,” Fadanelli said. “I think the vast majority of them are highly qualified, and I’m looking forward to working with all of them on all of the initiatives they brought forward to, at the very least, amplify the voices of LSA students.”

The LSA Student Government results were released hours before the Central Student Government election results, which are expected to be released by midnight Friday.

Fadanelli said he has talked to the leaders of the Movement and eMerge parties about academic reform and tuition, respectively, showing his desire to foster a positive relationship with whichever party that wins.  

Regardless of the results of the Central Student Government election, Fadanelli is hopeful he will form an effective relationship with the elected officials.

“Whoever ends up winning, I wish them the best of luck, and I hope for whatever happens next year the LSA Student Government and Central Student Government are able to have a strong working relationship together,” Fadanelli said. “Working together is in the best interest of the entire student body.”
