The University of Massachusetts Student Government Association has released all nominated candidates and write-in candidates for its spring 2016 elections, including those who are running for the positions of president/vice president and trustee.

Anthony Vitale/Nick Rampone, Khalif Nunnally-Rivera/Maija Hall and Adam Ladd/Max Teibel will run for president/vice president, while Josh Odam is the only trustee candidate.

Vitale currently holds the position of secretary of finance while Nunnally-Rivera is the secretary of diversity for the SGA.

Candidates running for president/vice president will debate and further discuss their plans at the SGA Executive Debate held on March 10 at the Cape Cod Lounge in the UMass Student Union.

Besides the three positions that will participate in the debate, there are 45 nominated candidates and seven write-in candidates for senator positions. Write-in candidates may tell the SGA’s election commission of their candidacy until elections close.

According to the SGA’s website, there are 14 seats available for the class of 2019, 12 for the class of 2018 and 12 for the class of 2017. This is the first SGA election where senate positions will be filled based on candidates’ class years.

All nominated candidates will be allowed to begin campaigning starting March 8 at midnight, according to an email sent to candidates by the elections commission. All campaign materials, including posters and online methods, have to be approved by the elections commission before being utilized starting March 8.

The email also stated that each president/vice president and trustee candidate will be allotted $550 in campaign credit to use at student businesses while those running for senator will get $75.
