The De Anza Student Body Senate appointed eight new senators to fill vacent seats Wednesday, Oct 12. Fifteen candidates competed for eight positions on the senate. Joshua Alfaro, Arya Suprana, Carlos Duran, Ola Elatta, Desiree Humphers, Alejandro Torres, Sara Elizeiny and Tri Le were selected as new senators.
The canidates introduced themselves and expressed their desires for the upcoming school year, along with the committee they wished to join. The candidates also expressed why they wished to be senators and explained their experience which merits them the position.
Senators asked prospective candidates what they wished to change and propose to the higher ups on campus.
The majority of candidates appeared to be unprepared, listing recurring themes which ranged from generic complaints about parking and Wi-Fi to ideas about senate marketing and a lack of on-campus events.
One candidate proposed a “Bread and Circuses” style DASB, where food and events would be the new priority of the senate. This was met with deep skepticism.
Despite tensions and inefficient communication, the Senate analyzed each candidate in depth.
In addition to the presentations and forms, what ever other senators knew of each candidate’s history and work ethic was taken into account as well.
The examination process involved asking candidates about how they would achieve goals and whether or not they would continue their work for the college if they were
elected.
The Senate based their decisions on how the new candidates presented themselves.
