Senate rejects Dugan-Pozas Garza campaign appeal
Observer Staff Report | Thursday, February 13, 2020
Student body vice president junior Patrick McGuire announced in an email to campus media Wednesday that the student senate declined to overturn the appeal of an earlier Election Committee decision.
“The student senate has concluded their hearing of an appeal to an Election Committee decision and decided not to overturn it,” McGuire said in the email. “The Election Committee’s original decision shall stand.”
McGuire announced the senate’s intention to hear the appeal on Tuesday night. The appeal regarded a sanction placed on the Dugan-Pozas Garza ticket early Tuesday for two violations relating to ethical behavior.
The appeal postponed student body election results indefinitely. Now that it has been resolved, Judicial Council should be free to announce the results since there are no known pending appeals or allegations.
Even so, results will not be announced Wednesday night, Judicial Council president junior Halena Hadi confirmed in an email.
