SFS Decision 2006


Its once time to elect new officers for the SFS, and the Nominations are in! Let's take a look at who's who, and who's going to be who:

President

This year we have two eligible candidates running for the office of President. The incumbent Mike "XIV" Anastasia, and newcomer Jon Adler. Anastasia is a popular president who could easily carry this election on his own merits, but Adler provides stiff competition as a popular and well-liked student both within and without the SFS. Who are we going to see victorious in this election? XIV by a landslide, because Jon Adler has found himself in the uneviable position of running for President while being the only candidate for Treasurer. Will Adler find somebody else to run against him for Treasurer in 2006, thereby increasing his chances for the Presidency? We'll find out.

Vice President

The Vice Presidential race looks to be the big question this year, with two popular candidates running for the office, and that's not counting the incumbent running for re-election! Jeremiah Chaplin is running for election in 2006. This is a big race for Jeremiah, because as a Junior, this is his last chance to snag an officership in the club. Running against him is Micah Gaulin-McKenzie, the incumbent Secretary of the SFS. Jeremiah is well-liked throughout the club, but Micah carries the lucrative and very important Trowbridge demographic (with one notable exception.) Off to the rear is current Vice President Adam Nakama, who has been embattled in several other organizations. The intrigue stirred up by Mr. Nakama's writing and service may hurt his chances in the controversy-sensitive SFS, but we have underestimated Adam before.

Secretary

Vice Presidential candidate Micah Gaulin-McKenzie runs against Monica Kolb for the seat of Secretary. Micah certainly has strong support here in all sectors, having admirably served in the role in the past. Monica, though, has demonstrated an aptitude for post-meeting emails which may win her support in her bid, and her presence would bring a female influence to the Officers not seen since the LaChance administration.

Treasurer

No contest here -- Jon Adler is the only candidate. There are some rumblings that Jeremiah Chaplin may enter the race late if the Vice Presidential competition turns against him, but these rumors should be disregarding until such time as a nomination is made. Either way, this race seems to going nowhere fast.

Librarian

Librarians depend heavily on which board is chosen, but Josh Wilcox, Amanda Strnad, Monica Kolb, Jeremiah Chaplin, Stephanie Colby,
Richard Desilets have volunteered for the two positions available. The upcoming librarians are certainly looking at a difficult job ahead of them, as the current librarians will be leaving a facility so full of book that the long-stand "5 Dollars or 5 Books" policy has been suspended. That, coupled with the on-going cataloguing project promises to put a heavy workload on the incoming librarians.

Calls for 2006

So who looks in line for positions in 2006? Here are my initial calls:

President: Mike "XIV" Anastasia by a landslide (a virtual default).
Vice-President: Micah Gaulin-McKenzie inching out Jeremiah Chaplin for the win.
Secretary: Monica Kolb by default.
Treasurer: Jon Adler by default.
Librarian: Jeremiah Chaplin and Stephanie Colby

How will this race develop? We'll find out. Stay tuned for additional coverage of SFS Decision 2006.

actually, i disagree...I believe that the Vice-President will go to Adam Nakama. from what i have heard, he has been one of our most active vice president while still having an active president, and nobody (to my knowledge) has anything against him.

But, will Jon Adler's smear campain show up again and swing the vote in an entirely different direction?

Like I said, the Vice Presidential race is going to be the most interesting one. Adam is hurting in a lot of ways, but as you point out, he does have a large support base. We'll see how it fairs this year.
