John Richardson beat out Chris Clark for Student Association president by a margin of just 34 votes Thursday night.
Richardson, a sophomore, earned 50.6 percent of the vote to Clark’s 49.4 percent.
“It was a close race, but I’m excited to get started,” Richardson said. “We have a lot of big things on our plate and we can’t wait to get the ball rolling.”
Ted Costigan was elected executive vice president over Amanda Galonek with 53.7 percent of the vote.
“Students want a fighter and I’m answering to that call,” Costigan, a junior, said.
The student body also approved a referendum to create an instant runoff voting system by 61 percent.
