Analysis of Student Government Board 2004 Election Results:

Incumbent President-elect Brian Kelly won the SGB presidency by 57% of the student body vote against challenger and current board member Todd Brandon Morris who received 43% of the student body vote!

Kelly won every polling booth results taking this election in a landslide receiving more than 50% of the vote in each polling station! Below are the percentage of votes he received in each polling station in comparison to Morris

  WPU C.L SonSq Bend Towers
Kelly 54% 59% 62% 69% 55%
Morris 46% 41% 38% 31% 45%

President elect Kelly clearly has a mandate from the student body to serve them and lead the Board this coming year!

The 'Driven' slate endorsed by the Pitt News and the Pittsburgh Standard swept the elections taking the first three spots!

Ransom 1319
Pasqualichio 1199
Blasi 1164

The 'Proven' slate endorsed by the Pittsburgh Standard took the next two spots exactly in the way they were endorsed!

Anukem 945

The 'Driven' and 'Proven' slates clearly have a majority on board to have any resolution passed and having their platform ideas implemented to serve the student body that have given them a clear mandate to serve them!

Harris 680
Higgins 653

The 'Dedication' slate endorsed by the Pittsburgh Standard had one of its slate members take the final spot!

Bambling 592

In all the Pitt News got all of its members that it endorsed make the board. The Pittsburgh Standard had all of its members it endorsed in the order it endorsed make it to board in that order except Bambling who was endorsed as the 6th ideal board member but placed 8th in the election. The only two that did not make board even though the Pittsburgh Standard endorsed them were Baron, and Carr.

Pittsburgh Standard proudly gives first endorsements to Zachary Ransom of DRIVEN

Ransom wants to be a team player on the board. He has the right vision when he believes, "when choosing a candidate for student government board it is important to know what the candidate stands for....and that their ideas not only benefit you as an individual, but you as a group and us as a University." That's what I call a team player!
They call him Zach! Your concerns he will back!

Pittsburgh Standard proudly gives first endorsements to Joe Pasqualichio of DRIVEN

Pasqualichio as an incumbent  has driven his service to the student body extra miles with the implementation of Pick-a-Prof and wants to make Swapitt a reality for students to swap things online with each other. I also love his desire to change the way basketball tickets are sold to Pitt students in the future.
They call him Joe! Your concerns he wants to know!

Pittsburgh Standard proudly gives first endorsements to Elizabeth Blasi of DRIVEN

Blasi as an incumbent has been excellent as a voice for the concerns of students when it comes to food services. She has taken the initiative to establish a food service committee and meet with Sodexho management to improve food service for you. She has a passion to fight for you.
They call her Liz! Fighting for your concerns she is!

Pittsburgh Standard proudly gives secondary endorsements to Jennifer Anukem of PROVEN

Anukem will be a fresh face to SGB and wants to help students know their rights regarding dealing with panhandlers and will make an excellent addition to the board to work in unity on issues that matter to you the student body.

Pittsburgh Standard proudly gives secondary endorsements to Jarrod Baker of PROVEN

Baker wants to bring back Midnight Madness and improve the way basketball tickets are sold such as having campouts to get tickets. This is the best and most community oriented way of bringing students together for the same cause.

Pittsburgh Standard gives third endorsements to Rebekah Bambling of DEDICATION

Pittsburgh Standard gives third endorsements to Kristina Baron of DEDICATION

Pittsburgh Standard gives third endorsements to Ryan Carr of DEDICATION

These servant 8 will make up the best SGB board to serve our student body! Even though we can only vote for five, the Standards' hope is that the third endorsements will also make it on board to round out the SERVANT 8!

What's new each day in the Pittsburgh Standard!

Eye of the Tiger by Survivor!

Risin' up, back on the street
Did my time, took my chances
Went the distance, now I'm back on my feet
Just a man and his will to survive

So many times, it happens too fast
You change your passion for glory
Don't lose your grip on the dreams of the past
You must fight just to keep them alive

It's the eye of the tiger, it's the cream of the fight
Risin' up to the challenge of our rival
And the last known survivor stalks his prey in the night
And he's watchin' us all in the eye of the tiger

Face to face, out in the heat
Hangin' tough, stayin' hungry
They stack the odds 'til we take to the street
For we kill with the skill to survive


Risin' up, straight to the top
Have the guts, got the glory
Went the distance, now I'm not gonna stop
Just a man and his will to survive


The eye of the tiger (repeats out)...
