Starbuck becomes SGA executive treasurer

Members of the Student Government Association voted unanimously to confirm Corey Starbuck as treasurer at last Thursday’s joint session meeting.

Starbuck accepted the position and will now take on all responsibilities as treasurer, replacing Stefany Tomás.

Starbuck, who had been vice treasurer, was filling the position because Tomás resigned in December. He was the only person to submit an application, president Cami Bravo said at a previous joint session meeting.

“Since Stefany resigned I’ve been able to work with organizations on appeals, hold treasury workshops, I began the financial advisory board, [and] doing paperwork,” said Starbuck, a junior marketing communication major.  “I think I’m sort of getting this whole treasurer thing down.”

Starbuck said he would like a vice treasurer to help him finish out the semester. He said is currently considering class of 2014 treasurer Tanya Flink, but will be accepting applications from eligible Emerson students. Flink said she has already sent in her application and hopes to hear back soon.

Starbuck worked as the Beacon’s ad manager last semester. He resigned after assuming the treasurer’s duties in December.
