By: Matt Head, OTV Station Manager


Veteran members of Student Government will throw their names into the ring for the upcoming spring elections.

Carlo Fassi and Mike Naughton will run for president and vice president as Red Party candidates. Current Student Body President Matt Brockelman introduced the running mates during an event in the ballrooms the evening of Jan. 18.

“And now members of the student body, I have the high privilege and the distinct honor of pronouncing your future student body president, Carlo Fassi,” Brockelman said.

Fassi has served in Student Government since 2009 and is currently serving as the senate president and interim Budget and Allocations Committee chair after Charles Galanti, the former committee chair, unexpectedly stepped down.

Naughton currently serves as Brockelman’s chief of staff and is a former Osprey Productions director.

“We have this experience,” Fassi said. “We know what’s currently going on and we can take what’s currently going on and make it even better next year.”

No other candidates or parties have officially announced plans to seek the seat yet.

The spring elections will be held March 6-7.
