Student body election results

From TNHonline: Richard Peyser and Christina Caiazza were announced as the incoming student body president and vice-president on Friday, April 23 at noon in the student senate office. The pair received 747 votes, beating out four other pairs of candidates in the election. Voting was held Tuesday through Thursday on Blackboard. Students Jeffrey Jett and Gregg Moody received the second-highest total number of votes with 567. Other candidates were Sarah Kelley and Chris Chagnon (546 votes), Bekah Hawley and Michael Sanchez (393), and Jeff Moyer and Robert Wilson (391).

I'm not here to brag, but maybe I have a career in covering politics, because that is pretty much the exact order I predicted earlier this week. Okay, I didn't list an exact outcome, but I did say it would come down to Peyser/Caiazza and Jett/Moody.  I also said that Kelley/Chagnon were the third best option due to their poor goals. I indirectly said that Moyer/Wilson and Hawley/Sanchez didn't have chance.

I would like to congratulate Richard Peyser and Christina Caiazza for their victory. I wish them the best of luck next and I hope they can continue what Richard started this year as VP.

Also, the blog now has a fan page on facebook. Check it out, we're hoping it will help provide a source of communication and connection to our readers. We are trying to get a better feel of our audience and the campus as a whole.

That is all for now, I'm off to Boston for the Red Sox game tonight. Have a good weekend UNH.

Stay classy, not UMassy.


  1. only 2000ish students voted?

  2. It's because nobody gives a shit about student elections. It's pointless high school shit, everybody has better things to do.
