ABOUT THE GOVERNORS
ALEXANDRA E. SHORT
JACOB D. MALO
Members of the Board of Governors are more than just club leaders, they set the standard for the next generation. Governors are living proof that the rising generation will be one of strong leadership, and a passion for justice and action, not just empty words.
Student Governors of the Young Leaders PAC are the voting members of the organization. The Board of Governors choose candidates to endorse, influence various pieces of legislation, and adopt a budget authorizing where monies should go. In addition, Student Governors’ signatures are affixed on every certificate of endorsement. Each Governor daily demonstrates a passion for leadership, from issuing bold proposals, to communicating with state and national legislators about the issues that matter most.
Pursuant to the Charter of the Young Leaders Political Action Committee, there are three voting member Gubernatorial seats -- with the senior-most seat held by Sage Silberman, one seat held by Alexandra E. Short, and one seat held by Jacob D. Malo.
The scale shown above ranks the sitting members of the Board of Governors based on their political beliefs ranging from liberal and progressive, to traditional and conservative. The locations on the graph were concluded through various political tests, in addition to an examination of the candidates by which the board members voted for or against. As evidenced by the graphic, each member of the Board of Governors has a unique philosophy and leadership style. Because of the vast contrast in the beliefs of the board members, the Board of Governors' political beliefs and personal backgrounds create a balance which results in a more effective representation of the interests of young leaders.
