Chris Scott wins VP Administration

Next year's VP Administration has been awarded to Chris Scott — a newcomer to the UBC political scene as a transfer student — but one who got involved right away.

"Thank you so much to my team," said Scott after winning. "I really am thankful for them ... I was not expected to win I don't think, and it was all thanks to them."

Opponent Alan Ehrenholz had occupied a diversity of positions, that many saw as a solid foundation for engagement. However, it appears that Scott's experience with the VP Admin portfolio and his strong debate performances won the day.

"I'm really happy ... I've been working behind the scenes for a long time so it's nice to finally be able to take the executive position," said Scott.
