PRIDE!Kent to elect new leaders

Christina Stavale

PRIDE!Kent will be holding elections for the position of president at its meeting tonight.

Last semester’s president, Colleen Eltibi, will no longer be serving as president this semester. Former Vice President Leora Rzepka is serving as interim president, and said she will be running for the position permanently. If elected, the position of vice-president will also be open to members.

Rzepka said all members who attend are welcome to vote and run for office. She said anyone wishing to run for office should be prepared to give a few sentences about what they could contribute.

The group will also discuss issues in the lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender community and plans for the new semester. Rzepka said the board would also like to hear feedback from members.

“Last semester we had Queer Dodgeball and Queers on Ice, and we had a decent turnout, but a better turnout would be better,” she said.
