Open forum on proposed student union fee called
ASUA University Relations Director and former senate candidate Brad Burns has notified me that an open forum on the proposed mandatory student union fee has been called. Burns will be debating in opposition to the fee against University Activities Board President Bridgette Gallagher at 7pm in the Union Kiva.
This upcoming Wednesday, March 29, ASUA and the Young Democrats will be hosting an open forum concerning the Student Union fee proposal and referendum being held on April 11th and 12th. Students and members of the public will be able to ask questions and engage a proponent and an opponent of the fee, University Activities Board President Bridgette Gallagher and ASUA University Relations Director Brad Burns, respectively.
The forum will be hosted debate style between the proponent and opponent of the fee and will be followed by a public question and answer session for both Miss Gallagher and Mr. Burns. During this time period, we invite any interested student or media outlet to express concerns or questions regarding the fee proposal and referendum.
Topics about the fee that will be addressed include the fee’s justification, distribution, and subsequent student oversight.
