Election Results


Election transparency with results

Tristan: Numbers should not be released

Brittany: Other schools release the numbers, been worried about transparency
before, should be civil on this discussion

Ishaya: Faith in Rich and Kyle with results, should use office they are in as
reference because they will not always work in there

Cody: Doesn’t question Sydney’s election win, real world does share results

Nick: In real world representatives aren’t elected within same pool of people,
SGA should focus on what’s best for Simpson students to be
Transparent, voter turnout is already low and SGA should focus on that
instead of numbers for transparency,

Emma: Numerical results will be effect winner and the lose, controversy will be
stemmed, bully from the results being released will happen, indifferent
to which way SGA chooses but needs to move on to help Simpson

Courtney: effects all students, not just SGA officers, should trust office since
students are in the effort when they are hired

Cody: Never thought about “ranking” senators by winning margin

Lewis: Rich and Kyle’s office are already being trusted with other
responsibilities from the college

General Discussion

Politics/Political Activity

Sydney’s recommendation: SGA should be open to discussion of issues, SGA
should stay in facilitating/educating role to help get information to the groups on
campus that need/want it

Britney: SGA should be advocates for students and be able to take action on

Sydney: Agrees, but wants SGA wants to stay neutral in general

Nick: Make sure advocating for all students, not just liberal/conservative issues,
agree a topic could come up SGA should act on, don’t want to be involved on a
partisan effort

Casey: SGA should educate, if SGA does advocate on a issue pair up with
another organization on campus

Emma: Main goal of SGA is to work with organizations on campus and should
always partner with or create a group to partner with

Britney: Maybe have a Simpson Day on the Hill

Nick: Advocacy could work on this issue
