ASI adjourns after 10 minutes
December 3, 2008 4:36 PM
Wednesday’s Associated Students, Inc. meeting was adjourned after only 10 minutes because there was nothing to discuss.
The humanities representative responsible for the agenda’s one action item was not present and four informational items were not tabled.
An e-mail sent to ASI President Natalie Franklin on Nov. 26 listed four proposed agenda items and, according to the timestamp on the e-mail, were turned in before the deadline.
However, none of these items were added to the official agenda. When graduate representative Laura J. Alarcon asked for them to be added, Franklin turned down the request saying she “didn’t feel comfortable adding them.”
Brian Gallagher, assistant to Sharef Al Najjar, the vice president of finance, voiced his concern during public comment.
Gallagher followed this by citing the ASI bylaws, which state that the corporate secretary is responsible for the agenda.
“I’m a student, and you’re my student government,” Gallagher said. “If you are not following the bylaws, I hope you find that a concern and take it into consideration and deal with it an appropriate manner.”
An adjourned meeting that lasted only about 10 minutes has not happened in about 20 years, creative arts representative Christopher Knox said.
