Wes Jones Reflects on SGA Career on Final Day as SpeakerPolitics, UCF SGA, You Decide — By Jacob Sadowsky on October 10, 2012 at 7:57 pm Tweet
Tomorrow begins the new term for recently elected members of the Student Government Senate. Elected senators will be sworn in at a meeting tomorrow evening, followed by elections for SGA Pro Tempore and Speaker. For one person however, the new term will be moving on without him.
Wes Jones, the outgoing Speaker of the Senate, lost the election to opponent Kenny Betancourt for Seat 8 in the College of Business. Jones took over the speaker role last October following the retirement of Alan Hardman.
We took the time to interview Wes the day before he would be leaving office for good to ask about his time in office as well as possibly being targeted in the recent senate election. Watch the video interview below.
Friends of Wes posted on his FaceBook wall thanking him for his time in office and help with Senate:
“It was a great time working with you, hopefully we’ll be able to do something like that again in the future,” Graham Austin wrote.
Luke Perdue, another friend, posted this message: “Wes, I owe my success today to your support, experience, and guidance. Thank you so much for getting me involved…”
