Recently, there's been some bad blood between the UNC-system Association of Student Governments and UNC-Chapel Hill's student leaders.
UNC-CH Student Body President Matt Calabria shouldn't allow that blood to thicken. Despite his assertion that this campus would be better off doing "its own thing," the University and the ASG need each other.
Calabria wrote ASG President Amanda Devore a five-page letter detailing his complaints about the association. Devore responded with 10 pages that included rebuttals of some of Calabria's claims.
In this case, working with an organization shouldn't come to mean criticizing it from afar. Calabria and Devore should be debating potential changes to the ASG in session, remaining open to the input of delegates from other UNC-system schools.
There are legitimate concerns about how wisely ASG executives are using their time - and there are serious questions about how each dollar coming out of every full-time UNC-system student's pocket and going toward the association is being spent.
