Mulhausen wins Senate secretary election

Sophomore Eli Mulhausen, one of eight candidates for Student Senate Secretary, has won the special election for the post.

Mulhausen received 95 votes, or 26.5 percent, according to Vice President junior JC Weinberg, who announced the results during the weekly Senate meeting Thursday night. Voter turnout for the election was 25.4 percent.

Mulhausen will now fill the position vacated by junior Justin Steele, who stepped down from his post earlier in the term due to a course schedule conflict. Steele would not have been able to attend Executive Committee or General Assembly meetings.

Freshman Nafeeul Araf: 63

Junior Kristal Romero: 47

Senior Claudia Brooke: 42

Freshman Molly Loudon: 39

Freshman Ojo Gbenga: 38

Freshman Payton Rose: 30

Junior Saskia Pellnat: 2
