Fresno State students elect Edison High grad as new student government president

Fresno State junior political science major Tim Ryan was elected as the student government president this week, the college said.

Ryan, 20, an Edison High School graduate, was elected to Associated Students Inc. and will officially take over as president on June 1. His position, as well as the other students elected to the student senate, lasts one year.

The three-day voting period ended on Thursday, and he was announced the winner over his opponent Cameran Patterson – an election that came down to a 50-vote difference.

Votes were tallied by the League of Women Voters of Fresno.

He currently acts as the senator for the College of Social Sciences.
