The winner of the 2019-2020 Associated Students Inc. (ASI) Presidential election is environmental management and protection junior Mark Borges. Borges won with 1,941 votes, while journalism freshman Alex Bires received 360 votes and communication studies sophomore Henry Broback received 430 votes.

Borges ran a campaign platform focused on improving four main areas of campus life: health and wellness, diversity and inclusion, sustainability and empowerment of student voices. In his campaign,  he said if he was elected, he would attempt to increase opportunities and resources for undocumented students and expand the protections for sexual assault survivors. Currently serving as a chair on the ASI board of directors, Borges had more experience in government than both the opposing candidates.

“I’m so excited to see what next year brings,” Borges said. “Whoever is in this position needs to be someone who can push student issues to the top … the leadership of next year is really forming, and starting that conversation of how we can make a better Cal Poly is what’s most important.”

The winners of the ASI Board of Directors are as follows:

College of Agriculture, Food and Environmental Sciences

College of Architecture and Environmental Design

College of Engineering

College of Liberal Arts

College of Science and Math

Orfalea College of Business
