Officer elections voting pays off for lucky prize winners

Prize winners for Officer Elections voting revealed

Voting for your NUSU Sabbatical Team is the best way to ensure your views are represented on campus, but for four lucky students, casting their votes meant that little bit extra this year.

Georgia Wisker, Mohammad Ali, Teto Seitshiro and David Wilcox each won £100 worth of Eldon Square vouchers for participating in the recent Officer Elections.

The prize draw was conducted by Lindsey Lockey (Director of Memberships and Democratic Services) and will help towards a third term shopping spree for the winners.

In total, 19,692 votes were received on March 12th as six new Sabbatical Officers and four Part-time Officers were announced. The new team will begin their respective roles this June, as they look to implement their manifestos.

Here are your Officers for next year:

Sabbatical Officers

President: Raff Marioni

Education Officer: Jonny Hall

Activities Officer: Sophie McDermott

Athletic Union Officer: Maggie Elstob

The Courier Editor: Louise Hall

Welfare and Equality Officer: Jack Green

PTO Officers:

Part-time Officers

Adam Warner, Lauren Sykes, Charlotte Boulton and Jamie Cameron

Remember there are still four PTO positions to be filled. Voting will open on Thursday 17th May and takes place at that week’s Student Council event.

Head over at 5:15pm for Candidates’ Question Time and to cast your vote.
