Student Government appointed four senators to Cabinet positions and voted to postpone the Boreing-Becerra election campaign investigation during the Oct. 1 Student Government meeting.
During the public forum, College Democrats members voiced concerns over how senators would vote on the Election and Integrity Committee Act, a legislative piece to create a committee to investigate election allegations against the Boreing-Becerra campaign. The constituents said it is important to have the investigation so students can stay informed.
The committee legislation was postponed due to an amendment proposed by Sen. Kelly Torpey to put a 30-day limit on the investigation and allow Vice President Alison Castillo to choose who stands on the committee. Both the amendment and the legislation will be voted on at the next meeting.
Four senators were appointed to Cabinet positions, including Director of Programs Alex Plunket, Director of Diversity and Outreach Diana Aldermae, Director of Government Affairs Alexa Browning and Director of Student Services Bodie Fry.
