More Letters to the Editors: Continue Support for Student Senate
To the Editors:
Underlying the successes of the past two years was the status of Senate as a paying job. The fact that Senators received wages in this period meant that Senate could attract and retain committed students who would be able to put in the time required to make a difference. Senate wages also allowed low-income students to serve. As was mentioned in last week’s Review, the Senate recently learned that the 2005 referendum failed to meet quorum and thus never affirmed our wages. For the period since we learned of the constitutional violation, we stopped receiving pay until the conclusion of this referendum. Senators have faithfully continued their work unpaid, but we are depending on your support on question #3, which would ratify wages from 2005-2007.
For continued progress on Senate, I ask that students affirm Senate wages for the next two years and vote yes on question #1.
