To Whom It May Concern:
As a member of the Student Government Association of Fort Hays State University, I feel that communication is an essential part of being an effective senator when it comes to representing my constituents.
Over the last week it has come to my attention that my motives and discussion points during Thursday’s meeting may have been taken with ill intent.
To clarify this, I will reaffirm what was stated without the emphasis placed on my speech by the grape vine.
As I stated in the meeting, I am against no individual filling the open position of Treasurer for the Student Government Association.
I believe that it is essential to our University that the position be filled as soon as possible, but this course of action must be done in the proper manner and through the right channels.
I have been a student on campus for three years now.
Each time I have looked for a job, I always check the JobX link on TigerTracks, which acts as a job-seeking resource center for students. With this program, paper applications have become a thing of the past. In fact, open campus positions for non-work study jobs must be listed on JobX so that all students are given an equal opportunity to apply for a position.
After due time it was brought to my attention that the position of Treasurer for the Student Government Association was not placed on JobX for any length of time. This was my issue with the legislation that was proposed to senate on Oct. 13.
I hold no personal vendettas against anyone on this campus and believe that as a student body we always work to provide the utmost accessibility to students, community members, faculty and staff.
This in turn has inspired me to run for the position of Student Body President for the upcoming year.
I invite all those concerned with campus issues and the acquisition of information to attend the weekly Student Government Association meeting at 7 p.m. on Thursdays in the Black and Gold room.
I look forward to serving the student body to the best of my abilities over the coming months.
