SGA releases breakdown of election results

The Student Government Association has released the detailed results of the senate and executive board elections that took place April 17–18.

According to a post by Dominick Recckio, SGA vice president of communications, on the Ithaca College SGA Facebook page, IC All That won the executive board election with 459 votes out of 1,224, or 37.5 percent of the student vote. IC Success and IC Connect, who ran against IC All That, won 29.65 percent and 28.26 percent of the vote, respectively. Fifty-six respondents, 4.57 percent of the vote, voted no confidence in the executive board election.

The voting percentage breakdowns of each senator election were also released on the Facebook page.

In a previous story published April 24 in The Ithacan, it was reported that SGA president Cedrick-Michael Simmons said the breakdown of the election results would not be released, “because there is no function or benefit in doing so.”

In his post, Recckio said the SGA has made the decision to release the results in a response to an editorial published May 1 in The Ithacan, which said by not releasing the detailed results of the vote, the SGA is not being transparent as a governing body of the college population. Recckio said the SGA disagrees with the comparisons made between SGA and the college administration in the editorial, but that the SGA is willing to uphold transparency and respond to such criticism.

“Part of our job as student leaders is to hold each other accountable, and to respond accordingly in the service of the student body,” he said. “Unlike the current administration, we are willing to serve the campus community by attempting to acknowledge what is taking place, and then reconcile or bring resolve to issues of disconnect.”
