Election results for next year’s SGA Executive Board hit social media outlets last week announcing Brian Choplick as President, Ashley Anderson as Vice President and Kory Mills as Treasurer.
“There are still a few weeks before I will be sworn into the position, which means more of the current SGA Executives,” said Choplick. “While I hope to one day earn the same admiration that they have, let’s focus on thanking these individuals for the service they have provided to our great university. As for me, I’m ready to get down to business for the student body.”
Current President Eric Bergenn said that he is happy to have Choplick filling his current role.
“I endorsed president-elect Choplick’s campaign so I’m obviously happy,” said Bergenn. “The only thing I’ll ask of him is to continue to be a strong leader and make sure this group keeps on making decisions that matter.”
“I am thrilled with the results of the election and can’t wait to start working with Choplick and Mills to maintain the professionalism of the SGA,” said Anderson. “I hope to improve the lines of communication between the students and the faculty and administration of CCSU. I want more students to know that they have an organization devoted to hearing their concerns and helping to make differences on their campus.
Liz Braun, current Vice President of SGA, said that she has confidence in Anderson.
“Without a confident, organized, resourceful and dedicated Vice President, the organization would lose its efficiency,” said Braun. “I have seen all of these characteristics in Anderson. I’m excited to see someone just as organized and detail oriented replace me, who also has great ideas on how to make the role of VP her own.”
“I’m honored to have been elected by the student body as the next Treasurer of the SGA,” said Kory Mills. “I know that together with Choplick and Anderson we can make CCSU a better place for all. I am really looking forward to next year and can’t wait to help students and their clubs.”
Current Treasurer Nick Alaimo said he is happy overall with the new Executive Board.
“We are leaving in a good position and Kory will do well,” said Alaimo. “He has been on the board and understands the finance committee and will adjust very well to the leadership position. Eric [Bergenn], Liz [Braun] and I will help them out and make sure that there will be a good transition.”
