2660 vote for Student Officer candidates
Elected candidates “overwhelmed”

The unpredictable results of this year’s Guild Elections were announced last night at the Liverpool Hope Creative Campus.

Harry Anderson was revealed to be this year’s LGoS President, alongside James Coe, Emma Sims and Alex Ferguson.

Nine candidates ran for the Student Representative Officer positions this year, with 2660 votes taken for these positions. 14% of the electorate.

The Student Trustee positions were taken by Harriet Hey, Emma Hart and Jonathan White, with 1523 votes made.

The LGoS Delegates elected to attend the National Union of Students Annual Conference in April are Matthew Smyth, Margaret Henderson, Nissim Massarano, Ste Smith and Tania Smith.

Post-result emotions

We caught up with the new Student Representative Officer team amidst the chaos.

Harry Anderson was almost too overwhelmed to speak, as he said himself: “Literally overwhelmed, I can’t think of what to say.”

James Coe was “Absolutely over the moon, can’t believe I’ve got the opportunity to represent the students, and Harry will be a great president.”

Emma Sims said “Mind blown, I’ve never actually felt like that!”

Alex Ferguson wrapped up his feelings with some speedy improv: “Guild or not to guild? Guild.”
