2015 UPUA Candidates Announced, Includes Four Executive Tickets

The candidates for the Executive of UPUA’s 10th Assembly have officially been announced. According to an email from Head Elections Commissioner Meeten Doshi, five executive packets were checked out and four were returned to officially file for candidacy. The 2015 Presidential race will include three familiar pairs, while a fourth ticket includes two candidates new to UPUA.

Current UPUA Vice President Emily McDonald heads one presidential ticket and is joined by current At-Large Representative Terry Ford as the Vice Presidential candidate.

Shannon Rafferty, current At-Large Representative and Student Life Chair is also seeking the presidency, and will be running alongside Gokul Sundar, who currently serves as a Co-Director for UPUA’s Freshman Council and has served on the Assembly in the past.

College of Communications Representative Ryan Belz leads another presidential ticket into the election, and lists current At-Large Representative Zach Longstreth as his running mate. Belz has made waves for himself in UPUA since he first started, and is fairly well-known for his controversial career in student government.

The final executive ticket features Hamsa Fayed as the presidential candidate and Dylan Sundy as the potential vice president. Both are newcomers to UPUA.
