8554 total people voted for this position. After five rounds of voting, Dan received 3594 votes, beating Serena Kohar with 1798 votes.
Dan said, “I’m so shocked because I didn’t expect it at all, as there were so many strong candidates.”
Dan’s manifesto points were: more transparency through a module review system and a standardised feedback system; better resources such as more charging facilities and greater support – more academic provisions for athletic students and more support for joint honours students.
Speaking to Impact, the current Education Officer, Adam BK, said, “He ran a really visible campaign and he’ll do an excellent job. He speaks to students in a way that I never could, he really relates to them.”
Dan also said, “Campaigning was so long, tiring and stressful but worth it. I want to say thank you to everyone who voted for me.”
