The finance committee and rules and judiciary committee of Student Congress met Tuesday discuss how upcoming legislation should reform the way student groups are allotted money and appoint new officers to student government.
Student Body President-elect Bradley Opere recommended three officers to be approved by Student Congress — Harry Edwards for student body treasurer, Jared Picot for student body secretary and Wilson Sink as director of state and external affairs.
Sink ran against Opere in the election for student body president. Opere said he recommended Sink because of the strengths he demonstrated throughout his campaign.
“My perspective as I ran throughout the whole campaign was that despite everything, all our differences in platform, I ... respected what Wilson had to bring: his platform and strong points,” he said.
“And I think that having Wilson come in and work with us speaks to us extending a good hand and moving beyond, you know, any issues that happened during the campaign.”
