Moving on from disqualification

In the most recent issue of The Paisano, the article entitled “SGA VP candidate disqualified” discussed the results of the Student Government Association (SGA) elections, including my disqualification from the race due to use of university email.

Though I am obviously not happy with how the elections ended, I am moving on. I encourage all those who voted in these past elections (as well as those who did not) to do the same. Most importantly, I encourage my supporters and the supporters of the other candidates to embrace this new administration.

At the end of the day, we can either sit and quibble about what could have gone differently, or we can move on, taking advantage of everything that this new direction has to offer.

Student Government is empowered by the involvement of students, elected positions and otherwise. It is only through the support of each and every student at UTSA that SGA will be able to reach its full potential and fulfill its creed to serve as the official representation of the students at UTSA.

In closing, I would like to offer my sincerest congratulations to Xavier Johnson, Charles Miles and all the other incoming SGA officials. I know that you will do great things for UTSA in the coming year.
