All-university sustainability committee chair chosen
November 19, 2008 8:07 PM
The ASI Board of Directors yesterday selected member Franklin Griffen to represent students in SF State’s new all-university sustainability committee.
The board voted 10-5 to approve Griffen, whom President Natalie Franklin said she nominated after university officials urged the board to quickly make its selection. Members added the vote to the day’s agenda and held a contentious discussion amongst themselves and public attendees who expected to apply for the committee seat.
“It’s extremely disappointing” that the board selected a fellow member without considering several students who sent letters of intent to run, said Bryan Ting, a member of student environmental group ECO Students.
Dissenting voter Sharef Al Najjar, vice president of finance for ASI, said “I’d love to read [Ting’s] letter of intent, as well as those of others.”
