ASWSU swore in two new associate justices to the judicial board at a senate meeting on Wednesday night. 

Jacob Hersh, one of the new associate justices, said he hopes to bring his experience as a pre-law student, political columnist and political science major into his role. 

Hersh said he promises to keep bias and partisan politics out of his work and to work not only for ASWSU but for the entire WSU community. 

Gueneviere Sherlaw, the second new associate justice, said she believes her past experience in leadership makes her a good candidate for the position. 

Sherlaw said she is aware of several past judicial board cases and will be adamant at holding all members to the approved bylaws. 

Sherlaw said she would like to implement town hall meetings with incentives for students to come and voice their opinion during her term.

All-Campus Senator Nikolai Sublett said he is now making calls to the appropriate people to install an emergency contraceptive vending machine on campus. 

Senate Pro Tempore Katie Carstens said she hopes to see a campus clean-up project soon. The project would allow different ASWSU-sponsored groups to clean up different sections of campus before the ice and snow hit. 

Carstens said she would like to see the project available to all students through GivePulse.
