After two intense weeks of campaigning, Mike Kwon and Jennifer Sanchez have been elected as the next Associated Students Incorporated President and Executive Vice President.

Kwon, who is ASI’s current executive vice president, garnered 68.28 percent of the campus vote. He campaigned against Ricardo Perez, ASI’s vice president of external affairs.

Sanchez, who ran against three other candidates, received 58.55 percent of the vote. Her nearest competitor was Laura Castro, who received 33.96 percent of the vote.

Kwon and Sanchez’s platform centered on bringing a university garden and food bank to campus to combat food insecurity, working with clubs and organizations to improve student life and introducing an outreach program to better market ASI’s accomplishments to the student body.

Both candidates campaigned as a team and endorsed each other for office.
