It’s Week 8 and that means the end of term is nigh! I hope you are all planning a bit of a break of the Easter vac and looking forward to some much-needed rest.
CUSU election season is now over and I am very happy to present your winning candidates for 2015-16:
President – Priscilla Mensah
Coordinator – Jemma Stewart
Education Officer – Robert Cashman
Access and Funding Officer – Helena Blair
Welfare and Rights Officer - Poppy Ellis Logan
Women’s Officer – Charlie Chorley
Ethical Affairs Officer (part-time role) – Tiantian Chen
NUS Delegates (part-time role) – Katie Akers, Amelia Horgan, Jemma Stewart, Niamh Dhondt
Thanks to everyone who has taken part – candidates, campaigners and voters. You’ve all helped us host one of the most energised set of CUSU elections in recent memory and I’m sure next year’s team will be all the stronger for your input.
If you haven’t had enough of elections, fear not! The festival of democracy continues next term with elections for local and national government. British and Commonwealth students will have the chance to vote in the General Election and, together with EU citizens, the local elections in Cambridge.
Remember: you won’t be able to vote if you aren't registered and, after changes to the law, it is now your own responsibility to get registered. College won’t do it for you! Thankfully, registering is quick and simple – just dig out your national insurance number (if you have one) and go to www.gov.uk/register-to-vote
All the best,
