Four of Brandeis’ most well-known students have signed up to run for Student Union President in the upcoming April 22 election. Daniel Achempong ’11, Matthew Kriegsman ’11, Sahar Massachi ’11 and JV Souffrant ’13 will face off April 13.

Student Union Treasurer Achempong was previously an assistant treasurer and has served on the Student Union for four semesters. He was not available by press time for comment.

Kriegsman has served for three semesters as an Associate Justice on the Student Judiciary. As president, he hopes to be more available to the student body and even hold office hours in the atrium instead of the Union office.

“I can come to the position with experience from a club perspective, as an advisor perspective, as a Roosevelt fellow; and people will be able to know me as more then just their president,” he said. “I think it would be a great learning experience and I think I could make a positive change because there’s things I love about [the Union] and things I don’t.”

Innermost Parts creator Massachi has not served on the Union but said he had thought about running before and hopes to improve Brandeis, “I want to make Brandeis a better place and push for things to make that happen,” he said.

Student Union Treasurer Acheampong was previously an assistant treasurer and has served on the Student Union for four semesters. He did not respond to requests to comment.

Racial Minority Senator Souffrant has served for two semesters and wants to be president in order to create new programs that will help students and address their needs.
