Elected to the position during the Guild elections in October 2015, Rachael Davidson has stepped down as Events Officer for this year.
One of the three members of the ACTION ticket to be elected to the 40th Guild, Davidson was elected unopposed after a last-minute disqualification of the TMNT nominee.
“I felt that the attitude of the guild board was one of negativity amongst members
I did not want to actively put myself in that environment and so have withdrawn,” says Davidson.
The spot may not remain empty however, with third-year student Ruebendraa Kantahrao vying for the position.
The current President of Murdoch University’s Environmental Science Associations (MUEnSA), Kantahrao must garner 25 student signatures to endorse him for the role.
He has received 24 signatures at time of writing.
An Environmental Science and Biological Sciences double major, Kantahrao (better known as Rueben) says his previous experience holding MUEnSA events will help him succeed in the role.
“I believe that I will be able to bring a similar increase in student activity to future Guild events as Events officer,” he says.
“I have a list of events that I have planned, all of which will be revealed when I am voted in.”
