This week, in what may have been the longest senate meeting on record, GUSA held elections for Speaker, Vice-Speaker, Chair of the Intellectual Life Committee, filled a vacancy in the Finance and Applications Committee, and approved President Nate Tisa’s (SFS ’14) nominations for the executive cabinet. Following elections, the Senate approved the 2013-14 GUSA budget and ended the meeting by passing an initiative to strengthen GUSA’s relationship with Student Counseling and Psychiatric Services (CAPS).
Personnel changes, essentially
Former senator George Spyropoulos (COL ’14) was elected speaker of the senate and Sam Greco (SFS ’15) was elected vice speaker. Both had been heavily involved in GUSA and left behind their
seats former positions for what Senator Cannon Warren (SFS ’14) described as “scheming” underclassmen to fill.
Senator Shweta Wahal (SFS ’16) took Spyropoulos’s place as chair of the Intellectual Life Committee and Senator William Bowers (COL’16) filled Greco’s spot on FinApp. Following the elections, the Senate affirmed Tisa and Vice President Adam Ramadan‘s (SFS ’14) nominations for the executive cabinet. (A full list of cabinet nominations can be found on GUSA’s facebook page.)
The Senate expressed enthusiasm over their selections, and, as usual, ended the proceedings very pleased with themselves.
