Emily Schofield ’09 will be next year’s Yale College Council vice president, current YCC Vice President and Election Committee chair Steve Engler ’07 said.
Schofield, who currently represents Branford College representative, defeated Sophomore Class Council President Ryan Russell ’09, 53 percent to 47 percent, in Friday’s 12-hour runoff election. Timothy Dwight College representative Harrison Marks ’10 won the runoff race for treasurer, and David Narotsky ’09 emerged victorious in the secretary competition.
The Election Committee scheduled Friday’s runoff vote after no candidate in the three races won a majority or a plurality of at least five percent more than the second-place candidate in preliminary voting that ran from Monday to Wednesday.
The three other races for the YCC Executive Board produced clear winners in Monday’s tallies: Rebecca Taber ’08 will serve as president, Joshua Tan ’09 will head the Undergraduate Organizations Funding Committee, and Thomas Hsieh ’08 won an eight-point victory to become chair of the Yale Student Activities Committee.
