With two vacancies, ASLCC appoints new senator

Posted on April 4, 2013 | in ASLCC, News | by

The Lane student government voted unanimously to appoint business administration student Alex Daggett as an ASLCC senator during its weekly meeting April 3.

“I’m someone who believes in creating positive change within my own environment and in my community,” Daggett said.

The appointment was necessary because two ASLCC senators, Adam Brown and Amanda Saeed, both resigned before the start of the term. ASLCC President Merriam Weatherhead said it’s the first time two senators have resigned during their term.

Later in the meeting, Daggett was nominated to Brown’s vacated seat on the Student Finance Board by ASLCC Senator Collette Buchanan. The ASLCC senate will vote on the nomination during its April 10 meeting.

Daggett said he hopes to work with the Sustainable Foods Committee, a student group that’s been spearheading a number of food-based projects on campus.

“That would be the first thing I want to jump into,” Daggett said.

Weatherhead the student government will meet with another individual who didn’t qualify for joining the senate this term, and will be implementing a contract with them.
