In the year that Susan Webster served as UF’s Student Body president, she said she made it her goal to work on all 42 points of Impact Party’s platform.

“There’s nothing that I didn’t attempt to put into the works during my time,” she said. “This is my contract with the Student Body.”

Webster and former Student Body Vice President Brendon “BJ” Jonassaint and former Student Body Treasurer Kishan Patel ran against Access Party’s executive ticket in Spring 2016.

Webster’s term ended Tuesday, and Smith Meyers, also from Impact, takes office today.

Online voting was also passed during the Spring 2016 election, but it was overturned. After Webster appointed a chief justice and four associate justices, the court met in between Summer semesters and overturned online voting, along with three other amendments.

During Webster’s term, she said her administration decided to work on Impact platforms including the one she ran on. She said her administration completed the Fall 2015 platform during her term and finished half of the Fall 2016 platform. As for her Spring 2016 platform, all but two goals have been completed.

“We did what we were elected to do, and ultimately that’s what the students want to see,” she said.

As the executive ticket reflects on their term, Jonassaint said he has some advice for the incoming team.

“Make it about the students, don’t make it about Student Government,” he said.
