Transcript ResipeNtial Life, anp 440usinc The Residence Halls Association weathered leadership shuffles and election controversies this year while doing its best to promote resident community through a variety of events. Russell Payne won the hotly contested election of April 2004 by a slim two-vote margin, prompting opponent Karl Hearne to request a recount and question more than seven ballots that were not clearly marked. Complaints also surfaced about possible ballot tampering and the replacement of campaign signage. The recount upheld Payne's victory, and he served as RHA president from June 2004 to January 2004, when he resigned to pursue a political future in Austin. Vice President of Administration Jermaine Lewis was promoted to president to fill the void and President of Special Events Ashley Glaw took on Lewis's former role as vice president. Cougar Place Hall Council President Chris Crane won the elections of April 2005 but was disqualified after failing to submit the required financial disclosure to the RHA Election Commission within 48 hours of poll closure, violating the RHA Election Code and mak ing him ineligible to serve. Crane fought the disqualification in a lengthy appeal that delayed the naming of a new president for two months. His opponent Joel Kissell, who lost by a margin of 47 votes, was ultimately named RHA president for the upcoming year in late June. Despite election controversies, RHA took care of business this year. Many campus residents got their wish for a new food service provider when Chartwell's seven-year food-service contract expired in May. Chartwell's had long been criticized by campus residents for inconvenient hours, overpriced food and poor selection. Aramark will take Chartwell's place in late 2005 and promises to change services and make $2.2 million in renovations. Beyond the change in food service, RHA held several community building activities, including a free barbecue for residents and movie nights in Cougar Place. On-campus residents were better off for their presence as liaisons to the administration and community builders. Story by Rachael Seeley 28
