Transcript l^ommiimenT to Student Goyermenf \ss<Hi«it An A: ssociaiiom o ems G ovem It was a tumultuous year for the Student Government Association. While the 39th administration entered office on the promise of cleaner elections it was to be swept up in an election controversy of its own. SGA President Dawona Miller and Vice President Jon Quintanilla took up the reins after winning a landslide election and hit the ground running by working to update the Election Code, help create a grade replacement system and sponsor a live cougar at the Houston Zoo to be named Shasta. One of SGA's biggest accomplishments during Fall 2002 was the creation of a fall commencement ceremony for College of Liberal Arts and Social Sciences students. SGA senators also took a trip to Austin to lobby legislators for more research dollars. They were successful in their efforts, but Gov. Rick Perry pulled the plug on the bill when he vetoed it. Throughout the year SGA members held town hall meetings, usually in public places around campus, so students would have an opportunity to meet their representatives and voice their concerns. Through legislation they managed to have several bus stops added at high traffic ares. Both Miller and Quintanilla, who served together on the student council at John H. Reagan High School in Austin, easily won re-election in Spring 2003, although they faced little competition. Miller was later accused of forging election documents and Quintanilla testified against her, splintering their friendship. — Ray Hafner The results are in SGA President Dawona Miller celebrates an expected win in her re-election bid as results from the 2003 elections are announced as challenger Nick Somarakis looks on. Miller led the way for the Student Voice Party but wasn't without her controversies once the campaigning was over and her new term began in April. Photo by Lorrie Novosad For the people...
