Editorial: Moving on from USG elections

By The editorial board • March 27, 2017 • 6:05 A.m.

Last Monday, March 20, two and a half weeks after polls closed for USG elections, the full election results were released. Irma Valverde and Lysette Johnson were elected as president and vice-president respectively, while Seeya Sodani was elected as Comptroller. This long wait was the result of an ongoing trial wherein Valverde brought several charges against fellow contender Andrew Stern. The trial, and a subsequent appeal by Stern regarding its outcome, spilled over into spring break and beyond.
