The office of the Student Government Elections Board remains vacant most of the time, as the chair of the board lives on FAU’s Jupiter campus. Ryan Klimar, the marketing director for the Elections Board, has been frustrated with Gregory Barber’s absence, and thinks it has to do with him being a Jupiter student: “He’s not in Boca, he’s not where the action happens.
