PRIDE!Kent postpones elections due to numbers

Mariana Silva

PRIDE!Kent’s board of directors decided to delay the election for the organization’s next board members yesterday at the Governance Chamber.

The board decided the number of members present wasn’t enough and postponed elections until 8 p.m. next Thursday.

Instead of the usual 30-plus members attending a Thursday night meeting, only 12 were present to vote yesterday.

Members of the board believe Flash Fest yesterday was the main cause for the low number of voters.

Next Thursday, members will receive ballots where they can mark yes, no or abstain for the names chosen by the board.

When most members say yes to a nominee, he or she is automatically elected. If members say no, the board allows the members to choose between the applicants for the position. If nobody applied for the position, the new president has the right to nominate somebody for it.

PRIDE!Kent will announce the nominees for the positions today via Facebook.


President – Max Harrington, Trae Ruscin

Vice president – Brandon Miketa, Amanda Fincham

Programming director – Martonyo Caddiell

Allies hair – Christina Mazzone

Secretary – No applicants

Treasurer – No applicants
