The race for Vice-President Events was probably the least exciting in an election of epic proportions. With only two candidates running, it was also the smallest.

"I'm super happy," said Alex Vyskocil, who won with 2,954 votes. "I have wanted this position since last year, so it's time."

Vyskocil, currently an Events Commissioner, says he will now be more confident with anything he does from now on in the SU.

With current Vice-President Events Richard "Krafty" Bergen moderating, presidential hopefuls promoted themselves and their platforms in front of roughly 150 students, the largest turnout in recent years.

  Library Assistance FeePDF files may take a moment to load

In this year's election, there are several referenda questions concerning decreases to Students' Union levies. One levy in question is the Library Assistance fee.

"Students don't need to pay as much to receive the same amount of funding," said Gavin Preston, head of the "yes" campaign to reduce the levy.

Preston, who brought the referendum question forward as SU Vice-President Operations and Finance, sees the decrease as both possible and necessary.

Alex Vyskocil took the stage Thu., Feb. 5, as he debated for Students' Union Vice-President Events--against himself.

Fellow hopeful Spencer Brown did not make it to the forum for undisclosed reasons, leaving Vyskocil to engage in a one-person race, where he proved to be quite amusing.

Vyskocil, currently an Events Commissioner and host of the SU's radio show, So SU Me, began with a brief overview of three issues concerning students at the University of Calgary.

His number one priority was tuition.
