Team WRC won a vote of confidence Wednesday night after running uncontested in the Concurrent Education Student Association (CESA) executive election.

WRC — composed of David Wiercigroch, president-elect; Sarah Chin, vice-president-elect (internal); and Hannah Ramsay, vice-president-elect (external), all ConEd ’16 — celebrated their acclamation at Queen’s Pub.

All three were all smiles about their win.

“[We’re] really humbled by this experience,” Ramsay said.

When asked what they’re most excited to start, Ramsay replied, “everything”.

“[We’re] excited to meet with the rest of Council and to work with them and meet ConEd students and establish that relationship,” she said. “We are going to meet up right away and plan hiring for the rest of Council.”

“I don’t think it’s really hit us yet,” Chin added.

Wiercigroch described the experience as “very surreal.”

“We’re excited to get right into it and get going,” he said.

“We usually get a really high turnout for hiring so [we’re] excited to hear all the new ideas people propose for the Association … [and] how those ideas can play into our vision.”

Wiercigroch said they planned to meet with the current executive to talk about transitioning “[so] that we can maintain the stability of the organization and move forward positively”.

Chin said they’re also looking forward to start to carry out their platform points.

“Especially our alumni Homecoming event,” Wiercigroch said. “That needs to be planned very early.”

The exact percentage the team was acclaimed by remains confidential under CESA Constitutional policy.
