Weston Ranch High School hosts their first-ever student election with contested races.

Well, some are contested.  

And unlike some recent elections around the world, this one won’t be rigged or the result of Russian meddling.  

Our student body scheduled to return to Weston Ranch next academic year will get to vote this afternoon by e-mail to elect class officers for the rising sophomore (’20), junior (’19) and senior (’18) classes.

While this unprecedented practice of allowing the entire student body to pick their class officers may come as a shock for some, this is not a surprise if you’ve been checking traffic on social media sites.

Complaints about the lack of student body involvement in class elections erupted into Twitter debates between Weston Ranch students and alumni earlier this year.

Although the actual vote will take place digitally with many positions subject to change, each of the next class presidents and certain class officers already have been predetermined because they are running unopposed.

Running without competition are our next sophomore class president Angelique Moreno (’20), her corresponding, secretary Nayeli Rios (’20) and treasurer, Crystal Chavez (’20).

Junior Class President candidate Julia Martinez (’19) also is running unopposed, along with secretary class candidate Talisa Moz (’19) and treasurer candidate Anthony Faulk (’19).

Allyson Cheng (’18) is running unopposed to be the next senior class president.

All of the Associate Student Body (ASB) officers have already been decided including President Nayeli Moreno (’18), Vice President Judit Zamora (’18), Secretary Paola Aguila (’19), and Treasurer Briana Buenrostro (’20).

Although for the students above, there is no competition, other positions have students battling to represent their Cougar classes.

Among sophomores, Rosemary Daniels, Cazandra Padre and Julianna Lassiter face-off for class vice president.

But when it comes to rising seniors, we see the largest collections of candidates, with Adam Daniels (’18) and Alyssa Phann (’18) both running for vice president. Giselle Lopez and Eric Lopez (’18) are both running for senior class treasurer. And at total of four candidates are duking it out for senior class secretary. They include: Jaismeen Kaur (’18), Marisa Castaneda (’18), Carmen Cannon (’18), and Kaitlyn-Rose Davis (’18).

    Lets keep in mind that the only reason why those positions are unopposed is because the lack of student involvement on campus in the first place. All students on campus had 4 months to show interest to our Activities Director , Mrs. Lewis, to run for a class officer position. It was highly encouraged.
