At SGA’s first Senate meeting, senators voted to appoint Cory Maran as SGA vice president. In light of Alex Henderson’s resignation two weeks ago, Maran sought the position by submitting a letter of intent and assumed office yesterday.

While the bill to appoint Maran passed by unanimous consent, the new vice president told senators, “I hope to gain all your respect even though I didn’t originally run for this position.”

Maran, a current senior, was a senator his freshman and sophomore years. He left the organization after his sophomore year, because of internal reasons.

“It just didn’t feel right,” Maran said. “There was a lot of internal bickering¬†among senators who were passing meaningless bills.”

Maran explained how senators used to pass motions to end debate periods without actually debating the legislation in order to get out of Senate as quickly as possible. He also mentioned how some bills were merely rubber stamped. In doing so, he said he thought the organization lost its integrity.

While Maran left the organization for issues he saw in SGA his freshman and sophomore years, he said this year will be different. He attributed internal issues to a failure in leadership, but said this year’s council and board are motivated to make changes.

Maran said, “I am confident that this new class of senators and this council/board are committed to their purpose in SGA and serving the students the best we can.”
