GSC Secretary Position Still Unfilled

By Benjamin P. Gleitzman

The position of secretary for the Graduate Student Council remains unfilled following a sparsely attended special election meeting of the Council held on Wednesday.

Jehanzeb Noor G, a mechanical engineering student, was elected treasurer, filling the third of four officer spots on the Council. Noor, who was the only nominee to apply before the emergency election meeting, beat Obrad Scepanovic G, an electrical engineering student, who was nominated from the floor during the meeting.

Both secretary and treasurer positions were left vacant following the original GSC election held on Wednesday, April 5, where Eric G. Weese and Shan Wu were elected Graduate Student Council president and vice president, respectively.

When asked to run for secretary following his loss as treasurer during the special election meeting, Scepanovic said that he had not thought about running for the position but would consider it.

An election for the position of secretary will be held at the next meeting of the GSC.

Unlike in the Undergraduate Association elections, in which all undergraduate students may vote, only GSC representatives, committee officers, and current officers are eligible to vote in the Council’s elections.
