Tonight, Fairfield students will have the opportunity to meet the the 2016-2017 Senate candidates who will serve as each class’s representatives. Meet the Senate Candidates Night will be held at 5 p.m. tonight in the lower level of the Barone Campus Center.
At the event, each of the senate candidates will read their personal statements, and then the students will have a chance to ask the candidates questions to get to know the candidates further.
The FUSA Senatorial Election will take place next Tuesday, March 1, where students will be able to vote for five candidates from their class to represent their class as senators. The candidate with the highest number of votes will become that class’s president.
This is the first year that the Senatorial Election is being held separately from the Presidential Election, and effort by FUSA to allow students run for both the presidency and campaign to be a senator at the same time.
The Class of 2017 and the Class of 2018 have four and five candidates running for the senate, respectively, while the Class of 2019 has eight candidates competing for a spot in the senate.
