The number: 191. That was the total amount of votes needed to surpass the runner-up for president of the Student Government Assembly at Santa Rosa Junior College. Second-year student and DACA recipient Eduardo Osorío Juárez, collected 321 votes en-route to the presidency.

SRJC officials tallied the votes for SGA election results on Monday, revealing Juárez as the new SGA president after he collected exactly 50 percent of the 642 total ballots the student population cast.

Runner-up Dori Elder collected 190 votes and Riley Shepherd finished behind her with 131 votes.

Juárez, 22, who works with various departments on campus such as the Office of Student Equity, Students Affairs and the organization Movimiento Estudiantil Chicanx De Aztlán (M.E.Ch.A.), aims to make SRJC a safer and healthier institution.

“I have been here for a year and a half and I noticed that we like to hear about sustainability, a sense of community and school spirit, and I would like to work towards accessibility towards the students’ success,” Juárez told the Oak Leaf on April 13.
