Cristina Ilnitchi wins VP External

Cristina Ilnitchi has been re-elected as AMS VP External.

Ilnitchi was running in a heated race against Associate VP External Will Shelling and Riley Ty, an AMS councillor for the Science Undergraduate Society.

She ran on a platform that aims to amplify student voices nationally by lobbying to provincial and federal governments, advocate for more student affordability and further promote SkyTrain extension.

“I’m so thankful for everything,” Ilnitchi said. “I’m going to celebrate with my friends and the students that elected me.”

As the incumbent VP External, Ilnitchi mentioned in her interview with The Ubyssey that she will be excited to start work from “before day one.” Her new term will begin on May 1, 2019.
