Gomez plans departure after outburst

One week after student senator Francisco “Kiko” Gomez had an outburst during a meeting, he said he planned to leave the Senate during its April 9 meeting.

“At the end of this meeting, I will officially resign,” Gomez said.

During the Associated Students of Lane Community College’s April 2 senate meeting, Gomez yelled an expletive and threw a pen at another senator after the senate passed a motion to fund the Peace Symposium at $1,900.

ASLCC Treasurer Zach Wais urged Gomez to postpone stepping down and reconsider the decision. Wais said did not think the Gomez’s actions warranted resigning.

“We all have emotional outbursts sometimes,” Wais said. “especially at meetings.”

Because Gomez hasn’t submitted a written resignation, his statement makes nothing official. He did, how- ever, officially resign from the Student Finance Board.

Gomez nominated newly appointed Senator Felicia Dickenson to replace him on the SFB as one of two senators who sit on the board. Dickenson was appointed unanimously by the other senate members. She abstained from voting for her own appointment.

At the end of the April 9 ASLCC senate meeting, Trevor Moore was also appointed as senator.

Moore said he wanted to be a senator because he has a passion for finance and tuition, and because he wants to make sure that student voices are heard.

After answering senators’ questions from the senate, they voted unanimously to appoint Moore.
