Andrew Clark was named the new student government president of the West campus on Monday.
“I’m glad we can move on from the drama now; it’s time to go to work,” said Clark, now president-elect of the Associated Students of Arizona State University at the West Campus.
His campaign, and that of his opponent, behavioral science junior Gary Galvan, was marked with campaign misunderstandings that led to an ASASUW Supreme Court hearing that threw Galvan out of the race. The court’s ruling was later overturned, and Galvan was allowed to continue in the election, which ended Friday.
“I put [the election] in God’s hands” Galvan said. “I’m glad it’s over, and now it’s time to come together.”
Clark said he hopes to work with ASASUW Justice Mark Beauchene and current President Ryan Caracciolo, who is also a candidate for the Arizona Federation of College Republican Vice Chair of Communications, to discuss student fees and how to use student funding more appropriately.
