Throughout her campaign for Student Association comptroller, Nyah Jones was surprised to learn how little students knew about SA’s Finance Board.
“It was alarming how many didn’t know what comptroller or Finance Board was. It’s their money,” Jones said. “I was just shocked to find how many people didn’t know what it was.”
Jones, a Syracuse University sophomore studying sports management, is the only candidate running for comptroller. David Bruen and Darnelle Stinfort are the only candidates for SA president and vice president, respectively. Voting opens on MySlice on Monday and will remain open throughout the week.
The comptroller acts as the chief financial officer of SA, managing the organization’s budget and approving all spending measures. Registered student organizations at the university can apply for funding from SA.
SA’s Finance Board allocates money from the student activity fee to RSOs that apply for funding for their events and other activities.
