At 4:45 p.m. today, Student Association President Nick Johns signed his resignation papers in front of Vice President Lyle Selsky and Treasurer Siddhant Chhabria.
Selsky is now interim president, effective immediately.
Chhabria said he and Selsky met with Johns earlier this week to discuss his future in SA. They advised Johns to do “what was best for him,” and they both felt Johns’ resignation was the right choice.
They also advised Johns to consult a lawyer, but Chhabria is unsure if he has done so.
Chhabria said he and Selsky plan to have meetings with the entire SA staff to discuss what the resignation means for the organization. Chhabria said SA will move forward from this misstep and will still have a successful year.
“We had a bumpy, rocky start to our year,” Chhabria said. “But what’s done is done. This is a fresh start.”
Chhabria added an election for a new president will take place at the end of October.
Johns told The Spectrum he will make a statement later tonight.
