Sheila Walsh (COL ’14), is the sole candidate for the senate seat representing the townhouses.
Sheila Walsh (COL ‘14) is a Government major running unopposed to represent townhouse residents in the senate. She writes to Vox that she is “running for re-election to the GUSA Senate in order to advocate for fellow students as the university begins implementing changes resulting from the most recent campus plan agreement.”
Walsh wants to “prioritize the integration of what’s likely to be a new advisory board for Campus Ministry into the institution’s existing funding structure.”
In addition to the experience of running for GUSA Vice-President last spring, Walsh points to her leadership in pushing for reallocation of money collected by the Student Activities Fee.
“The most important accomplishment of my last term was the role I played in the SAFE Reform referendum by which the student body voted on how to allocate $3.4 million of the defunct SAF Endowment,” she wrote. “As a result, the SIPS Fund was established, Georgetown Energy is installing solar panels on GU Townhouses, and additional square footage will be renovated in the New South Student Center.”
