Associated Students, Inc. (ASI) Chief of Staff Jonathan Lampkin resigned on Sunday, Jan. 3.

The philosophy senior, who declined to comment on his resignation, served as chief of staff from the end of Spring 2015 to the beginning of Winter 2016. According to ASI President Owen Schwaegerle, Lampkin wanted time to pursue other interests. He had been captain of Cal Poly’s mock trial team and worked for Tardiff Law in Avila Bay. He also worked as a student assistant in the Economics Department on campus.

“He had the desire to pursue some of his other commitments, academics and career-related interests,” Schwaegerle said.

Lampkin’s letter of resignation was read at the Board of Directors meeting on Wednesday, Jan. 6 by ASI Chair of the Board Vittorio Monteverdi.

Schwaegerle will be running Executive Cabinet meetings until a new replacement is found. Students are encouraged to apply for the vacant position, which can be found on the ASI website.

With the aid of the ASI Executive Staff, the Chief of Staff will be responsible for implementing the ASI President’s goals. The position closes Jan. 19 at 5 p.m., and the anticipated start date is Feb. 1.

“I want there to be a large pool of applicants so we can have great quality candidates,” Schwaegerle said.
