The candidates for this year’s Simon Fraser Student Society were announced this week. Four current board members will be running in the upcoming general election, as well as several first-time nominees, and a new slate of seven hopefuls, calling themselves Renew SFU.
The presidential race will be one of the most hotly contested of the six executive positions, with four nominees in the running. Lorenz Yeung, current member services officer, Arry Dhillon, current at-large representative, Kayode Fatoba, and Renew SFU candidate Ashleigh Kolla will all be vying for the top position.
The position of treasurer only has two candidates: Michael McDonell from Renew SFU and current external relations officer Kevin Zhang.
Current president Jeff McCann will be running again, this time for university relations officer against Aleks Besan from Renew SFU.
The positions of member services officer and internal relations officer will both be votes of acclamation, with only one candidate running for each, Humza Khan and Renew SFU candidate Craig Pavelich, respectively.
The election will be held online from March 20 to 22.
Update: As of March 7, Arry Dhillon has withdrawn his nomination for president.
