SA focuses on return to ordinary business

By Maureen Morrissey

With internal difficulties behind the Student Association, some senators hope to return to business at Sunday’s SA meeting.

At the Feb. 18 SA meeting, senators discussed the removal of SA President Huda Scheidelman for over two hours, but never voted on the issue.

“It drives me crazy this organization tends to flounder on internal issues,” said Senator Robert McCormick after the Feb. 18 meeting. “For the last three weeks this has been the only subject.

“I think a lot of people are realizing internal issues need to be looked at, but we can’t become absorbed by our own bureaucracy,” McCormick said.

Senator Henry Treftz said, “It is time to stop—let’s get down to business.”

The next senate meeting will be Sunday at 6 p.m. in the Holmes Student Center’s Heritage Room.

SA Mass Transit Board Adviser Dave Pack is scheduled to talk about the past four Huskie Bus accidents, which have occurred in the last three weeks.

Although Pack has not spoken to the senate about the accidents, it “was merely an oversight. I have piece of mind and I feel comfortable with the Huskie Line safety policy.”

Scheidelman said, “I do not think he (Pack) was trying to overlook it, but he may have presumed too much.”

“It is something that needs to be addressed,” Senator Jordan Kagan said.

Also at Sunday’s meeting, Scheidelman will present the results of the handicapped accessibility audit which was conducted last year, she said.

Scheidelman said she expects to receive the results today.
