Metropolitan Community College President and Board of Governors
United States of America

The position of Student Ex Officio is Metropolitan Community College's way to get student voices, opinions, and interests to the Board of Governors. This important, student-elected position has a strict set of campaign rules that all candidates must follow, or they risk disqualification.

Andrew Anderson, a candidate who campaigned mainly at the Elkhorn Valley Campus, was in clear and blatant violation of the rule that states candidates are not allowed to campaign within 100 feet of the designated polling computer on election day.

Because his behavior was not reported within 24 hours of the closure of the polls, he was not disqualified, and won the position of Student Ex Officio by default.

These rules were clearly set forth in the election memorandum, however students who witnessed his behavior are appalled that this candidate who so clearly accumulated many of his votes by cheating is now representing the student body.

We, the undersigned, witnessed Andrew Anderson breaking election rules by campaigning within 100 feet of the polling computer at the Elkhorn Valley Campus on Tuesday, November 14, 2006; election day for Student Ex Officio.

Though the memorandum specifically states that complaints must be filed within 24 hours of the end the of election, we nonetheless feel that his candidacy should be disqualified.

Moreover, because he was named Student Ex Officio by default and because many of his votes came as a direct result of his breaking the rule, we call for the immediate and thorough revokation of his title Student Ex Officio.
