CCSC Election Results: A Sue Yang Victory, etc.!

Written by


The results are in: Sue Yang is your new CCSC president, and Cliff Massey and Aki Terasaki have won their respective class council races.

Massey defeated incumbent president AJ Pascua with 64% of the vote, while running mate Eve Phan won the vice-presidency over current 2010 rep Valerie Sapozhnikova. It was not a clean sweep for the Clear Party, though, as Party Party rep candidate Maximo Cubillette will join Clear Party candidates Asher Grodman and Lena Fan as senior class representatives. Current BSO president Ruqayyah Abdul-Karine was the only Clear Party candidate not to win, though she too would have won if the Council had not implemented instant runoff-voting this year.

At the 2012 level, it was a clean sweep for Access Columbia, led by presidential Aki Terasaki and vice-presidential candidate Sarah Chai. They will be joined next year by Kenny Durrell, Brandon Christophe, and Jasmine Senior.

The rest of the candidates ran unopposed, including Yang’s Action Potential Party (Sarah Weiss, Deysy Ordonez, Sana Khalid and Nuriel Moghavem) and incumbent 2011 president Learned Foote’s ticket. The rest of the results, and more helpful graphics, after the jump.

    This just shows you what a powerful grassroots movement can accomplish at this schools. Sky's the limit guys. Keep up the good work.

      I don't think it proves anything. This is student government and not a major political movement. Relatively speaking only a handful of students actually voted. I think all it shows it what can happen when a bunch of people write obscene things about anyone they want when they can hide behind the internet.

  21. Normal Person

  31. Someone Tell Me

    What has CCSC or ESC done in the past 4 years besides buckle to administrative pressure (ie 40's and Lerner Pub)?

    Off-campus Flex and Pass/D/Fail have been floating around for YEARS and administrators finally got around to doing them, so don't give me that garbage.

  32. Asher
