Interim Student Senate Vice President junior JC Weinberg has won the election for Senate Technology Committee chair by a wide margin. This was the second special election to fill an executive position this term.
Due to a scheduling conflict, former Technology Chair junior Johnathan Ebbers stepped down from the position last week. The special election ran from Monday to Wednesday, and Weinberg won with 100 votes, or 66 percent, over his only opponent, sophomore Senator Phil Bennett, who garnered 35 votes.
Weinberg will continue to serve as interim VP until spring term, when VP junior Michael Gasparro returns to campus. Weinberg will consequently serve as Technology chair.
Voter turnout for the election was 10.7 percent.
