TO THE EDITOR:
I couldn’t care less who is elected student body president.
I once did, to the point of obloquy, but now I want to posit that SBP elections are an experiment of governance rather than a proxy to redress the grievances of the student body.
Although much has been said about the utility of this office and its seat on the Board of Trustees, most students grouse that the opposite is true: that student government contributes nothing of real value.
During my time at UNC, I was among those who were not included in the minutia of government so I often objected to its entirety.
