O’Toole & Concepcion Announce UPUA Executive Campaign

It’s officially UPUA election season.

On Monday, Nora O’Toole and Giselle Concepcion launched a campaign via Instagram to become the next president and vice president of the University Park Undergraduate Association. Currently, O’Toole, a junior, serves as the speaker of the assembly while Concepcion, a sophomore, is the chair of the governmental affairs committee.

Currently, it appears that O’Toole and Concepcion are the only officially announced executive ticket for the 2023 election. The 2021 and 2022 races featured uncontested elections for president and vice president, but it remains to be seen if history will repeat itself.

On the campaign’s website, O’Toole and Concepcion outline information about their own qualifications to lead the student body, as well as the focuses of their campaign.

The home page of the site reads, “We value a collaborative community for all.” What appears to be the campaign’s official logo is rooted in three values: resilience, renewal, and reform.

Currently, the campaign has a small handful of priorities listed. These include sustainability, mental health, sexual violence prevention and awareness, internal reform within UPUA, and making their services more accessible to students.

Students will have the chance to vote for president, vice president, and other UPUA representatives on Wednesday, March 29.
