Student Council candidates meet and mingle with student voters at “Meet the Candidates,” held on Monday, March 18, in the high school Commons. The election itself is on Monday, March 25, during extended homeroom.

RHS students had the opportunity to meet the candidates for student government for the 2024 – 2025  academic year on Monday, March 18.

The event, which was held in the Commons during Zero Period,  offered student voters the opportunity to become better informed about the candidates before the election is held this Monday, March 25, during extended homeroom.  

Freshman Jared Veljkovic, who’s running for president of the Class of 2027, said his goal in attending the event was to get voter support by “showing my face and spreading the word with enthusiasm.”  

“I’m here to represent the class of 2027,” added freshman Lara Khattab, a vice presidential candidate on Veljkovic’s ticket. “I’m going to get votes by interacting [with students] and sharing ideas to help my campaign.”  

Junior Liz Bukh, who is running for public relations officer for the Class of 2025, said she is “running because she wants to pursue this and better the school.”  

“I enjoy doing this and want to up our school spirit,” said freshman Ruhi Shah, who is running for class historian for the Class of 2027, on why said she is running for office.

Plenty of student voters attended to learn about the candidates for their class. Sophomore voter Felipe Gonzalez said he wanted to “vote for Abhijoy because he is leading with vision.”  

“I went because I wanted to know who was running for election,” freshman voter Ellis Reiber said. Reiber noted that while he “learned what most of the candidates were running for,” it did not change his vote. 

Finally, freshman voter Jenna Errico said she “wanted to attend to support my friends and see what others were offering.  I learned about what they [the candidates] are going to do. It was a very helpful event and definitely helped persuade me who to vote for.” 

The following candidates will be on the ballot for the election, which is taking place on Monday, March 25, during extended homeroom. Don’t forget to vote!
