YCC presidential candidate Jeff Gordon ’12 can’t be too pleased about endorsements made today by several members of next year’s board.

After hearing he had moved on to runoff against Courtney Pannell ’11, Gordon sent an e-mail to several newly-elected board members early Wednesday morning advising them not to endorse in the race, “primarily because you’re going to be working with one of us next year. Also because it’s going to be me,” he continued, “considering that Pete is endorsing me.”

Gordon told the News Wednesday night that he sent the message in a “euphoric” state, and was “just joking around.”
