On Monday, Nov. 24 at 9 p.m. in the Gowen Room in Wilson Commons, Senator-at-Large and senior Alvin Lomibao was elected Deputy Speaker of the Students’ Association Senate. He will be succeeding junior Kierstin Hughes. Due to Lomibao’s new position there is a vacancy in the Senate as he will no longer hold his position as a Senator-at-Large.

The Senate’s Constitution mandates that seven to 26 people are elected to Senate per term. Nineteen senators currently serve, according to Lomibao, but that number will soon drop with students studying abroad.

The deputy speaker assists the speaker of the Senate in all duties relating to the organization of the SA Senate and its initiatives. The current speaker of the senate is senior Harrell Kirstein.

Other positions are also available in the SA government, including chairperson for the Communications and Public Relations Committee and the City Cycles Coordinator on the SA Projects and Services Committee. These positions will be filled by the end of the semester and the Senators will start in January.

Schneier is a member of the class of 2011.
