Today, VP Sports Development candidate Adam Proudley dropped out of the race to become a Sabbatical Officer.
In a statement to the Wessex Scene, he said:
… it was a tough decision to make but there are other things I need to focus on right now and I wish Katie all the best.
His withdrawal means only one candidate, Katie Lightowler, remains in the race for VP Sports Development. Meanwhile, he is now the third Sabbatical candidate to quit this year’s elections. The news also comes after two presidential runners, Dan Branch and Rob Hayes, dropped out while Thomas Rogers, a previous ‘joke’ candidate, decided to become a serious contender against Oli Coles for the position of VP Student Communities.
