Of the 358 FIMS students who participated in the election this year, 177 voted for Matt Wright and 181 voted for Jordan Pearson. Four votes. That’s all that separated the two candidates from taking on the role of president in next year’s FIMS Student Council. It seems like voters were quite evenly split over what direction to take the faculty in. This is a relatively turbulent time for FIMS, with uncertainties over how we market ourselves to post-secondary students, disjointed course content, a new building, and numerous communication shortcomings.
With Pearson taking the reigns, we’re certainly in store for a year of exciting changes. Stay tuned for a future interview with our incoming president Jordan Pearson.
Until Pearson gets the chance to share his thoughts, sound off in the comments section below. What do you hope to see from the FIMS Student Council next year? What parts of Wright’s platform do you think Pearson should implement? Are you still scraping your jaw off the floor over the close call?
The candidates have done enough talking. Your turn FIMS.
