The Student Union will hold special elections on Feb. 8 to fill three open seats in the Senate, including the seat of East Quad senator Albert Feldman ’13, who resigned last month, Union Secretary Herbie Rosen said in a statement.

The other two open Senate positions are for the Village Quad and the class of 2012. Melissa Skolnik had previously served as senator for the Village Quad and Liya Kahan ‘12 previously served as senator for the class of 2012 but both are studying abroad this semester.

Feldman is no longer living on campus, an anonymous member of the Student Union said yesterday. The student asked not to be identified because he was not authorized to speak publicly about the matter.

“We commend him for his hard work and dedication to the student body while a member of the Senate,” Rosen wrote. “We look forward to working with the newly elected East Quad Senator, whoever it may be, in our continued effort to best serve the students of Brandeis University.”

Student interested in running for one of the Senate seats were asked to notify Rosen of their interest by Wednesday at 12 p.m. On Wednesday evening, Rosen sent out an email specifically to East Quad residents asking them to run.

“As of now, no one has stepped forward with interest to run as a representative of East. This is quite unfortunate, as we try to give everyone representation in the Student Union Senate, whether it be through a class or quad Senator,” Rosen wrote.

CORRECTION: It was Abby Kulawitz ’12, not Liya Kahan, who served as class senator.
