Concordia students turned out in record numbers to give the moderate “Evolution” a resounding victory by more than double the number of votes over the radical leftist “Clean Slate” in this year’s CSU election. The tally was 2,260 votes for Evolution, compared to 1,097 for Clean Slate and less than 300 for each of the remaining slates.
More than half of council’s seats went to moderate candidates as well (although note that this year’s president, Sabine Freisinger, was elected to council, as well as a few of her buddies.)
All in all, this is a very clear message from Concordia students about what sort of union they want running their school next year. And it can only mean good things for the future and reputation of Concordia.
Update: It seems that the actual numbers will be slightly different, due to what the Link refers to as “misplaced tally sheets”. Updated numbers will be announced Monday, but the CEO says they will not affect the results.
Also, the first threats from the sore-loser leftists are starting to crawl out of the woodwork, for example, this comment on the Link’s site. They can’t be happy about losing the election, but I would have hoped they’d at least be more graceful about it.
