The sophomore and junior classes at Davis High filed onto the bleachers to listen to the candidates’ speeches and finalize their voting decisions during the ASB rally after second period on Feb. 8.

In a row of chairs behind the podium sat all the candidates in the order they presented their speeches. Each speech concluded with loud clapping and cheers from the bleachers.

LISTEN to a segment of junior and candidate for ASB President Ben Skinner’s speech:

The candidates profiles were also available on the school website.

The two candidates for Senior Class President, juniors Sophia Fingerman and Sydney Moore, walked straight past the podium and addressed the crowd from the center of the gym.

The current ASB President and Vice President, seniors Kenneth Wang and Jake Goidell, planned the assembly. Wang has high hopes for any possible combination of candidates. “The overall future of the ASB executive board looks really promising,” he said.

LISTEN to Wang comment on planning the rally:

Due to a faulty basketball hoop in the South Gym, the ASB elections assembly had been pushed a week back from the originally planned Feb. 1 date.

Junior Catie Fee, a candidate for ASB President, said that some of her fellow candidates shared their frustrations with her on the last minute notice of the postponement and she admits to feeling a “lack of respect” from the people in charge of the matter.

“It felt like the administrators who were dealing with that didn’t think that this was very important to us,” Fee said. Fee gave the first speech during the assembly.
