Ingoglia: Election losers have winning ideas

Junior Matt Ingoglia, a Hatchet columnist, calls on candidates to consider some of the proposals of candidates who did not win in the Student Association elections.

Another February, another bitterly contested SA election. Assuming the JEC sifts through the alleged mountain of violations and does not disqualify anybody, Jason Lifton will ascend to the presidency by a margin of about 51 to 49 percent, and EVP candidates Logan Dobson and Rob Maxim will advance to a runoff from a race where all four candidates received at least 20 percent of the vote. Though contested races are nothing new in a school full of budding politicos, these numbers illustrate one of the most competitive elections in recent memory.
