“Bringing UGBC down to earth” was the campaign slogan of juniors Lucas Levine and Vance Vergara as the political newcomers vied this year for the leadership of the Undergraduate Government of Boston College, squaring off against the “take-back-your-student-government” team of Nanci Fiore-Chettiar and Chris Marchese. The race attracted a record 4,332 undergraduate voters, as the presidency for the 2014-15 academic year went to junior Fiore-Chettiar, a sociology major and UGBC senator, and the vice presidency to classmate Marchese, a major in history and political science.
Campaigning commenced on February 11 and ran for nine days. On Day Two, @BC caught up with the candidates and their supporters as they canvassed the residence halls of Vanderslice and 90 St. Thomas More Road.
