Hector Romo and Vincent Perez won the vote for  student body president and vice president Wednesday night by 57.5 percent.

    Eight hundred and eighty-two students voted. 

    Perez said he was pumped about winning and ready to move forward.

    Romo plans to do that by completing the projects he started as vice president with former Student Body President Austin Osmanski. 

    In this election, 67.4 percent of the students who voted chose to not allow concealed handguns on campus. The newly elected student senators will write their recommendation to Representative Drew Darby, Romo said.

    The duo plans to fill the senate seats, a goal Romo set during his tenure as vice president.

    Romo said they plan to continue to increase SGA's transparency and promote the True Blue campaign.

    "Come talk to me whenever," Romo said.    He said he also plans to fill the student spots in the Student Fee Committee and other such committees.  

    "The students in those positions are good students, but they aren't the type of students we need," Romo said. "We want outgoing students."

    He said he wants students to understand why they pay those fees.

    The student body voted in 12 senators, and the new student senate will meet Monday at 5 p.m. with President of the Senate Vincent Perez. A single senator needed five votes to take office. 

    

Will Boaz and Laura Perez won 34.1 percent of the student vote with 293 votes.

    Sixty-nine students voted for Jessica Shepard and Will Franke, making up eight percent of the vote.
