Transcript CLEAN Sweeps Up Students give Hoglund's ticket a mandate Throughout his campaign, CLEAN presidential candidate Paul Hoglund urged a "CLEAN sweep" of the Student's Association elections. He almost got his wish as Campus Leaders: Enthusiastic and Acting Now took 36 of 39 seats in the SA election held March 7 and 8. This year's elections attracted "I'm excited about it. I may take a vacation, then I should be hard at work." —Paul Hoglund, SA President-Elect 1,904 voters, down 27.8 percent from last year's record turnout of 2,635 student, Elections Commissioner Vikrum Bhatia said. In a runoff election held March 13 and 14, Hoglund won 57 percent of the vote over Michael Danke. SA newcomer, Lee Flemming, of the Representative Student Leader's ticket, squeaked by with 51 percent of the vote over Hoglund's running mate Yahya Saeed. CLEAN claimed Senate-at-Large positions 1-8 as well as Student Service Fee Planning and Allocation Committee Positions 1-4. The party took all colleges except for the College of Pharmacy, won by New Direction's Michael Ohelendt, and Social Science Position 3, won by Social Science Independant nominee Shannon Wilkie. "We're ecstatic," CLEAN Campaign Manager Damien Kauta, who won SSFPAC Position 1, said, "We feel like students have given us a mandate to carry out our plan of action." Current SA President Mikal Belicove, who got 159 votes in his reelection bid, said he got more votes than he expected. "When you con sider that we (Belicove and Senator Robert Miklos) did no campaigning and virtually no advertising, I'm surprised," he said. R&R nominee Michael Redmond said he felt that a few things in his campaign could have been changed. "I suppose if I hadn't been accused of running a smear campaign, things i would have turned out differently. Or if I had chosen a better (party) name. Last year, no one liked acronyms; this year, everybody did," Redmond said. "Thank God," Dinke presidential candidate Tim "Thor" Coker said of the campaign's end. "I hate to admit it, but I'm pulling for Danke. Kind of a lesser-of-two- evils thing," Coker said. CLEAN's Mark Burge, who won Senate-at-Large Position 7, said he hoped that all the parties, despite their differences, could rally together. "Students on almost every ticket have geniune concern for the university and I hope that we can pull together on common ground," Burge said. For a few of the losing candidates, however, rage was the order of the day. "It's a . . . pity that the outcome is this way," Independent Alternative Vice Presidential candidate Andrew Monzon said after he received only 92 votes, It just goes to show you that the SA elections will always be a tokenistic, hellish popularity contest. Don't blame me. I tried." "I guess if I had gotten Scott Streater to vote for me, I wouldn've won," he said, in reference to The Daily Cougar reporter who voted nine times in last year's SA elections and wrote a story detailing the ease with which anyone could cast multiple ballots. CLEAN requested recounts on one "I found out who my friends are. People asked me how they could help." —Lee Flemming, Vice-President-Elect of the positions they lost. "One of them is understandable since the pharmacy guy (Curry Demery) barely campaigned at all, but we lost Social Sciences Position 3 by one vote/' Kauta said. CLEAN Candidate Gene Simeon and RSL's Scott Sonsalla lost with 61 votes each to Social Science Independents candidate Shannon Wilkie's 62 votes. Coker said he thought a recount was a bad idea, "I think it's pretty stupid. If you lost, you lost," he said. Belicove said a homogeneous SA could prove detrimental, but only time would tell. "When you have candidates of the same philosophy and a party and all of them win, you're bound to run into a stalemate," he said. -Frank San Miguel 54 RE!"" APE
