In what turned out to be a not-so-close race, CalSERVE swept all four executive positions in the ASUC elections. Roxanne Winston won for president, Krystle Pasco is the new executive vice president, Dionne Jirachaikitti prevailed in the external affairs vice president race, and Carlo de la Cruz will serve as the academic affairs vice president come fall semester. But, lest we forget, there’s a bummed loser for every shining victor bedecked in laurel leaves and busty women. Student Action failed. The SUPERB referendum also failed. Sorry, guys.
According to preliminary tabulations, Student Action did much better in the senate, where they landed eight seats. Eight of CalSERVE’s senators also placed. The co-ops managed to shoehorn in one representative, as did Squelch and the Berkeley College Republicans. Matt DeMartini won the student advocate post, which pretty much goes without saying.
Our trusty Daily Cal news source says that the last time a single party controlled all four VP positions was during the 2006-2007 term, when Student Action had the cast-iron monopoly on the executive offices. Ah, how the tables have turned.
