Successful Candidates Good for the Waikato Students’ Union
Daniel Farrell has said today that he has no qualms with the way he ran his campaign for WSU 2012 with the result coming out that he has been unsuccessful.
“Yes, I’m a bit disappointed I wasn’t successful, but I also think the WSU Board we have ended up with is a great one to take WSU into the future. I look forward to working with the Board in 2012 as part of the Independent Broadcasting Community’s committee and in any other way that becomes necessary.” he said.
“I ran a campaign. It was unsuccessful. However, I was only 79 votes off the pace. That’s not bad when there were almost 1200 votes cast, the average voter voting for 4 candidates.”
Mr. Farrell also made the comment that he is glad the President-elect has a large mandate. “Having the President-elect successful by a margin of 169 means that we are unlikely to have any problems, such as candidates requesting a recount. It also means the President-elect has a sizeable mandate for the work that needs to be done toward a successful WSU in a VSM environment.”
Mr. Farrell confirms that, at this point, he has every intention to run for the 2013 Board of Directors at the election next year.
