Student Government Association (SGA) President Ryan Fox was elected for a second term, beating Amanda Sabia, Vice President of Academic Affairs, the SGA senate announced Thursday night.

The final count was 1801 votes for Fox, 1704 votes for Sabia and 371 votes of no confidence.

According to the SGA record of past presidents, which goes back to 1960, Fox is the only SGA president to be elected for a second term.

“I’m excited,” Fox said. “I’m excited for another year. I’m excited to have another opportunity to finish off things we started this year that we knew were going to take longer than a year.”

Sabia said the campaign experience was beneficial for her even though she didn’t win. She also said she held her campaign to the highest standards and integrity she could.

“I truly believe that I ran a cleaner, more constructive campaign,” she said.

She denounced the Fox campaign’s use of chalk paint. She said an administrator told her she could not use the chalk paint, and when Sabia asked Fox to remove his paint from campus, she said he responded with, “I don’t care what you think is fair.”

Fox said he was alerted by the administration after his campaign had done its painting and said the paint will wash away in time.

“I think he’s going to the same he did this year,” Sabia said when asked how she felt Fox will lead SGA next year. “Though his slogan of ‘Taking action and getting results’ is great and and all buzz-word like, he has take action and taken credit for a lot of the results.”
