The results are in for the Class of 2023 United Student Government (USG) Senate elections, finalizing the USG board for the academic year.

Phillip Krehbiel, FCRH ’23, received the most votes for the FCRH Class of 2023 Senate with 102 out of 437 votes. Jonathan Eng, FCRH ’23, and Katherine Smyth, FCRH ’23, followed with 83 votes and 71 votes distinctively.

“Fordham is an amazing place that needs to be its best version it can be every day, and I’m proud to lead the freshman class of 2023 in doing this,” Krehbiel said.

For the GSB Class of 2023 Senate result, Maya Bentovim, GSB ’23, gathered the most support with 53 votes and Jhan Chavez, GSB ’23, was just behind her with 35 votes.

Bentovim said she is thankful for everyone that voted, and ready to start her term.

“I’m excited to get working on my initiatives and improve our lives at Fordham,” she said.

Kaylee Wong, GSB ’20, president of USG, said she is happy with the Freshmen class’ involvement thus far.

“We had 12 wonderful candidates who were all extremely qualified and ran great campaigns,” she said. “I am excited to welcome our newest members to USG and cannot wait to see what they accomplish this year in representing their class.”

In the wake of the election, Wong said she is excited to be bringing in students with differing backgrounds and experiences at Fordham. She believes these Senators are well equipped to represent their body well.

“If [the Freshman class] has any concerns, do not hesitate to reach out to your newly elected senators,” she said.
