Ragland-Smith Wins UPUA Elections

After two stunning weeks of campaigning and one boom-box filled day of voting, the results are in. Christan Ragland will be the president of the Fifth Assembly of the University Park Undergraduate Association.

I fortunately got a chance to speak to candidates David Adewumi and Christian Ragland to give me their thoughts on their campaigns.

According to Adewumi, “We knew we were coming in as the outsider. There was a big gap for us to make up and did the best we could.”

Adewumi also stated that he still feels quite strongly about the issues he brought up during his campaign, and that he felt they ran the campaign as best as they could.

Given that there were many Ragland-Smith supporters, it was a bit tricky getting to talk to Christian Ragland about his victory, but I managed to get a few words with him:

“I am very excited and emotional about this win. I had a rough sophomore year and now to become President in my senior year, it just feels great. I have come so far. I am ready to go for duty starting tomorrow!”

We here at Onward State would like to congratulate Christian Ragland and Colleen Smith and look forward to the start of their term.
