SBA Election Results

Daniel Rosenthal, President (61.56% of the vote)
Roland Chang, Vice President (52.56% of the vote)
Lauren Prieb, Secretary (write-in candidate)
Natalie Ronollo, Treasurer (write-in candidate)

Thanks for everyone who came out and voted, double thanks if you voted for me. Your support will not be forgotten, I promise you. For my part I am sorry I could not have done better for those of you who cared about the issues my campaign raised, but am proud at least that we were able to garner a non-zero number of votes.

That said, the people have spoken, and in so doing have indicated what they want the goals of the SBA in 2009-2010, so, good luck to the new SBA Exec Board!

So the SBA is still a popularity contest and the executive board will continue to hoard their private parking spots? I guess the people get the "leaders" they deserve.

For the love of Pete, what is with the parking spot obsession? In past years the SBA spots have been donated to PILA and sold at the auction. I don't get what the big deal is.

SBA exec. board members seem to get free spots. 12 f was the only person who said that he would end this.

Past SBA presidents have tried to change this policy and were unable to do so, it has to do with Parking Services and things beyond the law school. So the parking spots are not and should not be an issue.

Sorry for the loss. I voted for you. Guess it is a popularity contest

9:51 = SBA exec board member. The fact previous presidents failed shows the ineptitude of the standard SBA exec board member. And, yeah, I'm sure they worked really hard to find a way to deprive themselves of their little perk.

It's really sad how little faith people have in the SBA exec board. I'm glad you put yourself out there, Andy, but I know that this exec board will get a lot of great things done. I wish people would see beyond the fact that someone is popular, and consider that they are motivated and qualified as well.

"It's really sad how little faith people have in the SBA exec board."

Why do you think that is? Past experience doesn't give us any reason to expect otherwise.

"I wish people would see beyond the fact that someone is popular, and consider that they are motivated and qualified as well."

As do I because inevitably these SBA elections are nothing more than popularity contests. If the same people keep occupying the top SBA positions, I'll continue to expect the same results.

P.S. 2:50 = SBA member

What is this "SBA" everyone is talking about?

Please. SBA has not, and will not, be able to accomplish the things people desire them to. Free coffee? No. Not going to happen, certainly when the school can piggyback off of Greenberry's. Reduced tuition? It'd be nice if that were possible, but try telling professors they're not going to get paid as much. See how that goes over with them. And don't forget, with the market tanking, the demand for admission to law school and b-school.
At the end of the day, the SBA is much like student government was in high school. Which shouldn't be a surprise, given that we have lockers, a cafeteria, etc.

One of my friends was an SBA exec. The parking spots aren't "free", they pay for them. So does NGSL. And so does Virginia Law Review for that matter. Yes, they have spots too. The conspiracy continues!
