Nicole Willey '08 was elected as chair of the Student Activities Funding Committee (SAFC) on Thursday night.

Willey's 273 votes led her to a 18-vote victory over Clark Gascoigne '08. John Masland '08 took third with 181 votes. The election had the highest turnout of all Bowdoin Student Government (BSG) elections this semester.

Willey, who has not previously served on the SAFC, ran a campaign based on her experience as a club leader. The SAFC distributes more than $500,000 in student activities fees to clubs each year.

The Elections Commission met on Thursday night to discuss a complaint alleging that Masland sent mass e-mails to students in violation of BSG election rules. The Elections Commission issued a statement reprimanding the candidate for the alleged violation, but did not take further action.
