The ASPSU voting period ends today at 7:00 p.m.
On April 22 the student Judicial Review Board made a decision to re-start the 2015 ASPSU Election – and we all know why.
It came to light that one of the candidates for ASPSU president, Tony Funchess, was convicted of sodomy and attempted rape.
Funchess resigned as multicultural affairs director on April 22 but stated that he would still run for president.
Members of our community were heavily opposed to his decision and started a Facebook community called Step down, Tony and petitioned for Funchess’ resignation in the election.
The candidates this second time around came forward April 30 – and Funchess is certainly absent from the ballot. In fact, it looks entirely different.
Do you think that ASPSU leaders handled the situation properly? Do you think the changes that they have made are for better or worse?
