TO THE EDITOR:
To the issue of Chapel Hill withdrawing from the UNC Association of Student Governments: I think that we cannot call for that until two things occur.
First, we need to have consistent representation at these meetings. We need to send delegates to every meeting in order to make sure that our opinions, wants, and needs are being heard before we can say that there has not been any benefit from being involved.
Secondly, we need to make sure the people that we send are representing us well. If the delegates, ex-officio especially, are not accurately representing the student body to ASG, then the blame for not seeing any benefit at our University lies with those people.
The next meeting is at North Carolina School of Science and Math. Please consider attending to see what kind of job your delegates are doing. I think that would give you a much better perspective on what ASG is, does, and why what I said holds true.
