Student Government Association elections are finally over! WVU Her Campus had the privilege to interview the new WVU Student Body President, Jason Bailey before the elections took place, and now we had the chance to interview Vice President Megan Callaghan! Read below to see why she decided to run and her thoughts on the revote!
Name: Megan Callaghan
Hometown: Charleston, WV
Why did you decide to run for Student Body Vice President?: “I decided to run for Vice President because I wanted to take my work as a governor a step further. I wanted to head up the most student inclusive SGA in history.”
How did you feel about the University’s decision to revote?: “The revote was a necessary step to ensure the validity of the election. It was taken in the best interest of the students and candidates as well. For the future, I think all elections should be set up the same as the revote in centralized locations with secure voting booths.”
What was your initial reaction when you found out you, along with the rest of your ticket, won?”: “My initial reaction was pure happiness and relief. As a candidate you truly put your life into the election. I lived and breathed SGA and will continue to do so. I couldn’t be more proud of my Fusion ticket.”
