Marcus Ireland, a junior studying political science, criminal justice, and philosophy, with his running mate Caleb Munce, a junior studying political science also announced their candidacy.
President McNary said she is looking forward to this upcoming election.
“I know that they’re both very knowledgeable about SGA, and I think that they both chose really good running mates as well,” McNary said. “I think it’s going to be competitive, and I think it’s going to be really exciting to watch.”
Ireland’s campaign slogan is “I’m for You.” Ireland said he is looking forward to what the campaign will bring.
“I’m excited to see what changes come to Senate overall, not just the Presidency,” Ireland said. “I think that people should have more interest in the student government… it really is the students’ voice.”
Sorbe’s campaign slogan is “A New Era.” He said voters can expect to see new ideas within their campaign.
“We’re experiencing a transition in USD presidents; it’s a huge time in USD’s history,” Sorbe said. “Madison and I are really looking to carry on the legacy of USD and start our new traditions Coyote strong.”
