Temple Student Government announced today the results of the election, officially naming Raysean Hogan the assembly’s next student body president.
Hogan ran as a part of “Owl Evolution” along with Priya Patel, the vice president-elect of academic affairs, and Juan Galeano, the vice president-elect of student affairs.
“Owl Evolution” ran against the “Building Temple Tradition” slate which included Ryan Feldman, Mawata Dunbar and Paolo DeVito.
“Owl Evolution” received 2,201 votes compared to the 1,083 votes that “Building Temple Tradition” garnered.
This year’s vote total was slightly down from the 3,306 cast last year. This year’s election total also ends the three year trend of increased voter turnout that began in 2003.
Hogan, a risk management and insurance major, is currently president of the Main Campus Program Board. Patel is a member of the Business Honors Student Association and is the director of fund-raising for Phi Beta Lambda. Galeano is the current TSG diversity affairs co-chair.
The candidates from “Owl Evolution” will be officially sworn in May 1.
