Many students have been asking for the reason of my disqualification at the conclusion of the SGA election, it basically revolves around four individuals that sent out emails encouraging their friends and fellow students to vote for me. This occurred during a campaign time where candidates cannot request any of their supporters to campaign for them. In their sworn affidavits to the justices reviewing this appeal, these four admit they exercised their own freedom of speech and not through any request or encouragement from me

Even though the JHU students elected me as Treasurer, I accept this ruling with regret and under resonant advisement that the rules need to be updated so there are no hidden interpretations to prevent this from occurring in the future.

Respectfully Yours,

Schaefer Whiteaker
