The 2009 WSGA election results are in, and the Love/Onek campaign is all smiles.

Garrett Love was announced as the landslide victor, garnering 932 out of the record 1,388 presidential votes. Love and vice presidential runningmate Caley Onek were informed of their appointment in front of a large crowd in the basement of the Memorial Union.

“We definitely want to get down to business,” said Love. “That was one thing, knowing that if elected, March 7 we get down to work. We do big things at Washburn University.”

Current WSGA president and vice president Whitney Philippi and Amy Billinger announced the presidential results, as well as the 27 senators who were elected for next year’s senate.

The pair will assume their positions April 15, but are already beginning to transition into their respective roles.

“I’m really excited to work with Whitney and Amy and find out what they’re doing right now and what we can do to adjust into it,” said Onek. “I’m ready. I’m very excited to start.”
