Results from the ASUP run-off election indicate that Kathleen Burks has been elected to serve as director of communications, and Brandon Wester has been elected to serve as director of finance.

Last week, students voted Sitara Nath and Michael Gallagher to be next year’s ASUP president and vice president. Their opponents Alex Peterson and Carrie Fitzgerald received 37.8 percent of the vote, compared to Nath and Gallagher’s 61.2 percent. All candidates for executive board, including presidential and vice presidential candidates layed out their platforms for students at Speech Night
