Missing senators stymie meeting plans


Only four student senators showed up for their biweekly summer meeting Wednesday, too few to actually hold the meeting under ASUO rules.


The senators missing were Kristine Jensen, Nick Schultz and Demic Tipitino. Five would have needed to be present to hold the meeting.

Summer Senate Chairperson Nick Gower said Jensen had contacted him well in advance to notify him of her absence. Tipitino had to cover for another student working with Student Introduction Services.

Gower said at the time that he did not know the reason for Schultz’s absence. Schultz said Saturday that he had been kept late in a meeting with Student Affairs Vice President Robin Holmes, and had then been “caught up” at work with Campus Recycling. “Sucks I couldn’t make it,” he said.

The Senate’s only plan for Wednesday was to decide the location of its meetings during the school year.
