Candidates Connor Le and Bhawna Vaswani were elected Vice President of Internal Affairs and Vice President of Student Allocations in the final night of elections for Associated Students of Michigan State University.
Just prior to the meeting being called to start, VPIA candidate Logan Baker pulled out of the race for Vice President of Internal Affairs, leaving Le, a history and political science sophomore, as the only person running.
“We’re out there making great strides tonight because I believe this is the first time in recorded history that there is an Asian American identifying as VPIA," Le said. "I hope to continue making history throughout the 60th session.”
After taking a quick recess, the next election of the night was for Vice President of Student Allocations, with three candidates ready to step into the role.
“I'm committed to building stronger and healthier relationships by reaching out to (other ASMSU representatives) and listening to their concerns and working on the improvements that they might expect.” Vaswani, a biochemistry and molecular biology sophomore, said.
Now elected, Vaswani plans to promote transparency, accessibility and inclusivity in the funding process.
"I believe that (by) providing clear and concise information with examples of acceptable documents with details, we can make the following process more manageable for all organizations,” Vaswani said.
