3 more SBP candidates become certi?ed

Nash Keune, Joe Levin-Manning and Greg Strompolos joined three others Monday morning as official candidates for student body president, after gathering the required number of signatures to get on the ballot.

Number of signatures acquired by each certified candidate:

  • Hogan Medlin 1,891
  • Shruti Shah 1,344
  • Greg Strompolos 1,024
  • Monique Hardin 1,018
  • Nash Keune 1,018
  • Joe Levin-Manning 1,013

Only three candidates were originally certified, but the addition of Keune, Levin-Manning and Strompolos brings the field to six, the same number that ran in last year’s election.

That election led to a runoff between the top two, a likely scenario in this year’s election.

Monique Hardin, Hogan Medlin and Shruti Shah were all certified by the Board of Elections on Thursday when they gathered more than 1,000 valid signatures of support required to get on the ballot.

The other three failed to get the signatures, but were allowed 24 hours to collect more and re-submit them, under Student Code regulations.

Each of the candidates needed fewer than 80 additional signatures to get on the ballot. Keune needed only two.

The six candidates will now begin campaigning in full force and will face off in the Feb. 9 general election.
