ASG election delayed, now results are MIA

Associated Students Government election results have been delayed since voting was held April 22 and 23 after more than a month of campaigning.

According to Student Affairs Coordinator Lori Oldham, votes were collected on paper ballots on campus and online through San Diego City College’s website.

The results of the election were supposed to have been posted on within a week after the polls closed.

Student Affairs was contacted by telephone April 30 for election results
and their reply was that

who could provide the

May 5, Student Affairs was contacted in person. The information shared was that Oldham was still out sick and there was no date as to when she would return, nor was it known when the election results would be posted.

Associated Students Government senate candidate Claudia Robles and current President Adam Garcia were available for questions. They replied in the negative about the election results.

May 7, Bill Ponder, who is the manager of Student Affairs, responded to an emailed inquiry: “We should have that information for you by Monday at the latest.”

Sometime during May 8, in an online search for information, it was discovered the website for City College was not available. Although the site was running again by May 9, ASG election results still had not been posted.

As of the publication of this article, the results of the election were still unavailable.

    More San Diego election problems:

    I mean, really! Politician problems at every level of San Diego government, not one spot of harmony at any level. Filner/Falcouner, Lansdowne and all his fired perver officers (Kaye’s still there), how much longer do they expect this to go on?

    But at least SDCC has its eternal Garcias. Talk about getting your family involved, Jesus. Just tell the truth for once, everything’d be just fine.

    I wonder if a Garcia got elected. I’m sure one did, they’re all Heidi-ed up now.

    I’m just the right size.

    I read the story and I don’t see anywhere where Lori Oldham’s ethics or professionalism is questioned. All I get from this story is that circumstances beyond people’s control led to election problems. Regardless of what happened I do hope there is a followup story to report on the results. I hope Lori Oldham is feeling better!

    While it is unfortunate that the election results were delayed, the health of our faculty and ultimately our team member triumphs everything else. I don’t know who was contacted in Student Affairs or what was said, but I can speak on behalf of Lori Oldham and her work ethic. Mrs. Oldham is highly professional and ethical; she even took time to reply to her emails while she was in hospital to let people know where she was and why she wouldn’t be available (that’s going above and beyond). The preliminary results of the election were submitted by Mrs. Oldham in a timely manner, but what you have to understand is that all of the write-in candidates had to be verified and contacted. As you can imagine, that can produce some delay. Whatever the case may be; congratulations to everyone elected!
