Results! (prefunctory)

Posted by: | January 25, 2008 | 21 Comments

    Fire Hydrant should have stayed in the BoG race like in previous years.

    I wonder what it would do to voter turn out if we threw all of these out and started all over again…
    oh wait- i don’t wonder- i know that it would be catastrophic for this year and next… seriously guys, know when to pitch a fit and when to have another beer.
    but that’s just my and 3 jugs opinion…

    I am so upset that that incoherent scatterbrain RodrigoFerrariNunes beat Erin Rennie. At this rate I will never finish my homework

  8. Gina Eom on January 25, 2008 9:15 am

    Oh, the work dynamic between Lougheed and Duncan will be of great interest even from continents away…

    Alex got 723 votes, 164 votes clear of 4th-place Hydrant. Let’s hear it for legitimacy!

    I gouge out my eyes for happiness!

    Gina, you haven’t been around for a year. Things and people change, and you haven’t been here to observe it. Please reserve your comments–especially if they’re not constructive.

    The responsibility of being an AMS executive also has a very sobering effect. And since Mike and Alex know that they’ve come to loggerheads in the past, they’ll probably feel duty bound to not let that happen again. Similarly, it’s so obvious that Stef Ratjen may not immediately fit in with the exec (in ideological terms) that there will likely be a big effort by everybody to find common ground and produce a good working relationship.

    I was so hoping Nate would win! He’s such a great guy with creative, innovative ideas and he’s by far the most hardworking candidate to campaign for the position. Too bad people do not appreciate his effort. Instead, they make up a porn poster to promote other candidates….He should appeal!

  14. Mike Thicke on January 25, 2008 5:37 pm

    I’m sad that Nate didn’t make it. So close! But congrats to Alex and all the other candidates. I’m looking forward to learning about the other “massive irregularities” in the campaign besides the VP Admin thing.

  15. Jacob Cosman on January 25, 2008 6:22 pm

    Yeah, so assuming that there are 40,000 AMS members, and everyone who voted at all voted for President, that’s about a 7% turnout. So… not that terrible really compared to other schools. Actually about three times the SFSS turnout last year, as a proportion of students.

    It is a little worrisome how some of those elected haven’t had such a great time working together on petty student government in the past. Hopefully that won’t impede the whole decision-making process though.

  16. Gina Eom on January 25, 2008 6:43 pm

    I am really disappointed that the VP Admin race has to reboot itself – the hard work that went into campaigning of the candidates who didn’t break regulations…. My heart goes out to them.

  17. Blake on January 25, 2008 6:52 pm

    Wow.. that was very close. I barely got elected. Special thanks goes to those last 13 people that voted for me. Ice cream is on me.

    It’s really unfortunately that only 5 of us could be elected to Senate. Most of the candidates this year were qualified for the position. I really hope that Philip, Colin, Eileen, and Aidha try to get elected as Faculty reps.

    i would like to see more non-constructive comments from gina. when youre in politics (even student politics) you should try to develop a thicker skin. whiny butt hurt does not play well with the public. you won, so go have a beer.

  19. ainge on January 25, 2008 7:19 pm

    also, i’ll join the chorus of disappointed nate crompton fans. i joke about my years-long pro-hydrant voting, but i couldnt bring myself to do that in one of the few races that had someone worth voting for. whats so great about this alex lougheed guy?

  20. Patrick on January 25, 2008 10:55 pm

    Quoth the Eoin:

    “A thousand people voted for Freeman? Who ARE these people?!”

    Clearly those people did not attend the debate.

    Holy wow was that a Duncan landslide… Like, just wow.

    Looking forward to the VP Admin rerun, gonna have to do some thinking on what to do.
