The incumbent social officer, Sophie Jaggar, is the latest of those announcing her candidature for the upcoming ANUSA elections. Jaggar is running for Social Officer for the second year, following her success in 2019 as part of the ticket ‘New Leaf’.  

Jaggar is running as an independent, despite several other candidates for executive positions in this year’s elections also campaigned with ‘New Leaf’ in 2019. 

As Social Officer in 2020, Jaggar has been essential in planning events such as O-Week and Bush Week. Notably, her time as Social Officer has been marked by a transition to online experiences and socialisation for most of the year so far.  

In promoting her candidature, Jaggar describes herself as ‘experienced’, innovative’, and ‘forward thinking.’  

While Jaggar has not released any policy plans as of yet, she notes that there will be updates in coming days and weeks before the elections begin.
