Students voted last year on a ballot measure that would amend the ASLCC constitution, converting the multicultural programs coordinator from an elected position to an appointed position.
Now, ASLCC President Paul Zito is actively trying to change the position back to elected. “That was a point I pushed for last year extremely hard, because culture has no business being appointed,” Zito said.
It is unclear how much support Zito has.
ASLCC Gender and Sexual Diversity Advocate Max Jensen believes that the amendment should stand.
“Having a majority vote on minority representatives becomes problematic, because then it is not necessarily the people who are going to be affected by this individual who are voting on this representative and advocate,” Jensen said.
The most recent constitution is not available online. A copy can be obtained by contacting ASLCC.
