VP Fields -Isthere a secondonSenator Green's motion? Mapes Motion to approve the agenda Zoll SecondGuestofthe SenateJoe Grant, Vice-PresidentofAdmissionsI'mhere tonight to talk about the move we anticipate from the Hewitt Union to the new Campus center. We are in the midstofa2 million dollar transformation. Many buildings are be updated and everyone is moving.Notmany people are happy with the move but some are. We have worked through these issues and that happensina timeofchange. Our plan is to move all student organizations for the fall so that we are allinthe campus center. The plan is thenewSwetman piece will be openbymid-summer and we want to move in as quickly as we can. What we are trying to do is work with student organizations. We are working on the allocationofspace and we want to let you know that the architecture suggests that there is less dedicated to spaceinnew buildings. We think this will overall be a good thing. People are going to talk to you and we are going to allocate a timeline from May 1stto the timeofgraduation. You will have the materials you need. We will work with you andbythe time you come backinthe fallyouwill be moved. Moving isn't easy and we know from past experience. There will be growing pains. We want to use the same approach for student groups as we used

We might have to make some changes because no one is certain that the new location will work as we anticipate.Itis going to be an exciting place and we believe that this slow move will facilitate activity. We have hired additional staff so that we will have activity day and night in the campus center. Bronson with the adventofthe new campus center, what happens to Hewitt Union? Grant -Wehave been wrestling with that but the new governor's budget doesn't give us new capital for Hewitt Union.Itis on our laundry listofthings to be renovated and it will be surge space while it is being renovated. Until we create new space, we need to maintain the old rooms (ballroom, Ozone). They will be available until new spaces Kelland -ifthose locations are going to be open why are other spaces going to be shut down? Grant -I don't know the answer to that right now but I know the Union has to be open some but utilities have to be paid and we don't have the money Kelland they plan on closing the comer shop and food court, the suite shop what about those? Grant Someofthem will be open but we are going to restrict it for cost saving purposes Cooperman you talk about moving the boxes intoa secure place, what would that place be? Grant -Idon't'know what that place will be maybe the forum where it is locked all the time.Wehave to work with allofyou to see how much material it is. This is a safe community but we need to have some security. Anderson is the bus schedule going to change since the route goes to Hewitt and this is necessary for off-campus students Grant We have talked about the bus route andI'mnot sure but we will accommodate student needs.Weare going to work with students and see what the demand is. We will make needs as they are brought up. I will make a note andbesure we address it Anderson -I rely on thebus system and a lotofstudents do too. I don't want it to be confusing when we come back in the fall Cooperman will the last landscaping walk ways be piece be completed by fall like the walkways? Grant Yes, the parking lot and pedestrian walkway will be open by fall. So between Hart and Hewitt there will be a passage way to the new parking lot. Green will SA have to pay the expenses for boxes and the move? Grant People will come in and talk to you about this and what material needs to be moved and we'll provide the boxes and material and the moving. We'll have to see what space we'll have. Green so are these people going to be administration? Grant No they will be from the staff or an outside service. Youwon'thave to worry about that. Cooperman thank you for coming down and answering our questions. Kelland do you have any contact information for questions? Grant My information is grant@oswego.edu x2250. I will be in touch with Josh [President Miller] and Andre [Vice-President Fields]. Anderson will there be vehicle access to pick up students?

Thank you again for having me here.PublicCommentNYPIRG, Project Coordinator Tim Duch Hi there, just some updates where we stand with a few things. Andjustto remind youofall the great things we have coming up this month a lot is going on, it is a busy time but some really great neato stuff. Things that are finalized: Our Tenants rights workshop will be on the12that 4pm in the Hewitt Union Formal lounge. Holly Stone hasn't gotten back to me yet, but Idon'tsee a problem. The following day is our local delegation visit with Assemblyman Barkley and that will be in Fulton at 4pm. The Following week is the All-Campus Special Election. Wejustreceived word that wethinkthis is still going to happen as outlined. Our main event is Tuesday and that is a screeningofthe movieIn Debt we Trust.A big problem is credit card debt for many students, evenifI have had problems with this.Inany event a lotofstudents have this problem whetherornot for personal or medical and a lotofstudentsdon'tknow their rights or the difference between an acceptable rateofinterest and usable rateofinterest and this even it will be huge. WE will have the speaker whose story is told: Bob Manning and we are going to reach out to faculty and staff. There will be a panel discussion for students to ask questions for clarification. This is what NYPIRG is about: taking action. Wednesday the 26thI will be promoting this. The bottle bill was April 1stand the agreement didn't include the bottle bill. I will now read you a statement: Hi everyone, we are sorry to report that this evening Governor Spitzer announced that the bigger better bottle bill would not be in the state budget this year. We're disappointed, but we will take the Governor, Assembly, and the Senate up on their word that they will continue to work on this issue outsideofthe budget process. We're not going away any time soon!Onthe legislative front, Senator Marceillino pledged that the Senate would continue discussions post-budgetonthe bottle bill expansion. Governor Spitzer also promised to continue to advance the Bigger Better Bottle Bill through the legislative process. We made an enormous amountofprogress in recent months.Ithasbeen a very different campaign this year than years past, with different players. Within the legislature, there were new champions. In the Assembly, the newEnCon Chair Bob Sweeney did a great job. And in the Senate, Senator Frank Padavan emerged as our most ardent advocate, along with Senator LaValle. Our grassroots campaign on the campuses and in the communities has been extraordinary in termsofall the new energy, enthusiasm, and press we have been able to generate.Itwould take much too long to thank all the project coordinators, project leaders, interns and volunteers who dedicated so much time, ingenuity and passion to make this oneofthe biggest political issues in New York State. However, the fight is far from over. We are asking you to use the Senate and industry's opposition as a rallying point as we head into April, which is Earth month. We need to put huge amountsofpublic pressure on the Senate to pass the Bigger, Better, Bottle Bill. Public pressure generated with the kindofnumbers that can only come from our campus program.Thankyou all again.

We have lotsofoutreach and political campaigning to do. Kelland the visit with assembly man Barkley where is that goingtotake place Duch His office is in Fulton Kelland The movie is the25thand 26th? Duch Only the 25that 7pm, sorry about that. Christopher Sugar, Student Because I am taking the minutes I ask youtonot bother with questions at the endofthis but instead raise them amongst yourself during Senator Issue's forum. I will be available after Senateifyou wish to talk to me further about any points I raise. Before I begin I would like to preface this speech but saying the following: I am humble in expressing my opinion about certain issues; however, I refuse to let a habitual injustice persist when I can take some action to correct the problem. This is why I come before you today. The first issue I want to raise with this Senate is the crass and quite frankly the disgusting levelofbehavior that someofyou showed towards membersofthe SUNY-Oswego community. Not too long ago some students came before you to voice their issues and concerns. They came to the Senate in good faith to exercise their individual right to express their speech freely through the platformofPublic Comment. These students came looking for an outletofchange but instead, found deaf ears and criticism. What help was offered to these individuals by their representatives? What remedies were prescribed that would assure them that the system did in fact work? What help did they receive? Accordingtothe SA minutes, severalofyou told them tacitly that you could not (or rather would not) help them. Instead, these Senators replied that the problems should have been voiced sooner or that these individuals, who had cometoyou in a timeofdesperation and despair, should simply ''join the senate" like this would magically fix their problems. Now,I'mnot sure why this option was offered; perhaps you were seeking replacements for yourself due to a lackofcompetence in the areaofrepresentational government. ButI'llgive you the benefitofdoubt and entertain the notion that perhaps this was your best solution. However, I personally would like to see more steps taking in addressing these grievances insteadofforming exploratory committees or waiting for the semester to end in the hopes that this will all go away. This point leads me to my next issue: the arbitrarinessofStudent Association. You are lawmakers and, while not on the same level as the New York State Legislature or the United States Congress, you control the purse strings and create and enact rules and regulations. However there seems to be inconsistency with someofthese laws which, I fear, will lead to SA losing the respectofthe people and inadvertently becoming an illegitimate body. Recently the Supreme CourtofSA ruled one law vague. How many other laws are on par with this ruling? Worse yet, how many students don't understand the rules or the laws? This leads to a further problem:ifthe people who you represent do not understand or, even worse, have no faith in the laws you create, how can you expect this to not lead to the collapseofSA. This is a serious concern that allofyou should mull over.If

So what makes a law making body illegitimate? According to the simplest theory posited by LonL.Fuller, former professorofLaw at Harvard University and authorofTheMoralityofLaw,Mr.Fuller believes that there are eight underlying principles that a society or any legal body must not commit or else risk complete and total collapse. These eight principles are:1.A lackofrules which leads to ad-hoc and inconsistent adjudication.2.Failure to publicize or make known the rulesoflaw. 3. Unclear or obscure legislation that no one can comprehend. 4. Retroactive legislation.5.Contradictions in the law.6.Demands that are beyond the powerofthe subjects and the ruled.7.Unstable legislation suchasdaily revisions8.Divergence between adjudication and legislation. Fuller further insists that there is no magical combination or preponderanceofviolations that will lead to the collapse and illegitimacyofa legal body. However, please take a moment now andthinkofany numberofviolations this body and other SA bodies have committed and tell me, honestly and openly that SA does not risk collapse. Something needs to be done and it needs to be done now. This I ask and implore the Senate to consider before it moves past the threshold into the pointofno return. I understand that I have put forth many questions tonight and that the answers I am looking for may not come instantly. I am a patient man, however, but that patience is limited by your time, as well as mine, at this school. Please take these questions into consideration though and ask yourself what can be done. Ask yourself these questions now or else you may be asking yourself: what could have been done differently before SA collapsed. Thank you. Kelland just to Christopher Sugar, could you put your speech in the minutes?Sugar-Yes Spoken Writers Guild (SWG), President Justin Tossas Good evening senate,I'mJustin Tossas the PresidentofSWG. I will be giving you a presentation about our final eventofthe year. Lets get started with the slide. This presentation is for our show"Game Over". A little mission statement for this event: would you like to see SA put on a performance with money spent wisely? Sure you would. SWG is the only artist represented organization on campus. WE provide astage for artists and we are very active. WE work with a lotoforganizations. A little bitabout our showcase, we saved our most riveting and captivating artist for this showcase and we have a good feeling about it. This is our last showcase and we have had six events this year which is good for a Tier 1 organization. We couldn't do it by ourselves so we asked the lifestyles center to help us. Our request break down in reasonable, we are looking for $350 for a sound engineer. He is oneofthe top engineers in the Syracuse Area his name is George Gleason. He has worked with Grammy artist. We are looking for $50 more for our D.J. Our thinking behind this wastohave the most effective quality for this performance. He saidhewould cut his rates by 15%.WEhave done some fundraising and have cut down our cost. Lifestyles,

PAGE 7

1who have a tight budget, have offered 140 which is 25.6%ofthe total breakdown.2We are asking $400 but our total would be $570 soweare asking for 70%.Inthis3case we are asking for $125 from our last event. This is a big bang for your buck.4A few closing comments, I feel thatSWGhas doneanexcellentjobas a Tier 15organization and have out performed many Tier 1 and Tier 2. WE are excited6about thenewexecutive board that will be taking over. Manyofthe founders will7be movingonbut this organization will endure and continue to provide8entertainment for the future. Also, we are now a green environment.9Green -howmany people have you had to come to other presentations?10Tossas We average 50 to 60, it fluctuatesbyevent.11Adams how many are you expecting to have at this event12Tossas 60 to 70 at this event13Green other than the engineer and sound guy, the advertisements are the second14most value what were you planningondoing?15Tossas Higher quality ads and this is nothing we have asked from SA this is16from the Lifestyles center. We encouraged them [Lifestyles] to contribute to this17event and they pushed their budget to the limits.1819Bastien Tenbergen, Student20I'mhere not onlyofmyself but for a lotoffellow students who see21themselves treated unfairly. First, the new campus center.I'mglad that you, Mr.22Grant are here to talk with me about it. The problem is the Campus Center is a23ice rink not a student center. A3x3 cubicle is not enough for a student24organization. Idon'tbelieve common rooms or common lockers are a reasonable25choice because that is leading to trouble.I'malso here to talk about the futureof26the Hewitt Union. I do not believe that the Hewitt Union will face a fair way for27future use. It has been a good student union and the campus has the need for a28new campus center but because the fact that the new student center doesnothave29enough space for the people it was designed forLe.the students, it must stay.30Organizations must be allowed to stay and use the Union for their needs. What I31strongly urge the administration is to not take the Hewitt Union outofthe hands32ofthe students. Idon'twant to see down the road that the Student Union is going33to be put intoanoffice building. It should stay a student union. Something else, I34want to make clear that I am not a memberofNYPIRG.I'mnot here becauseI'm35a supporterofNYPIRG.I am a supporteroforganizations for change that want to36make a change for the better. It has come tomyears that the current directorof37financedidn'tallocate money for NYPIRG. The overwhelming students want to38have NYPIRG herefor the students. There are here because we want them to be39here. NYPIRG has been mentionedinthe budget but given 0 dollars. Youcannot40allocate 0 foranorganization that is working for students. I want to urge you the41senators to NOT,NOTallow the current directoroffinance from allocating that42anorganization that helps students because he thinks they are a pain in the other43end (laughter from gallery)44The current DOF has a problem and this is not how a democratic organization45should work. I would also like to mention as a commuter student thatehparking46situationonthis campus have not been treated fairly.Itis not okay thatmyfellow47roommates and friends have to get upanhour early to commute to the commuter48lot so they can take a bus to come to class. There is not enough parking spots for49the studentsoreven the residents. I have a problem finding employee parking

PAGE 8

1because the employee lots are fullofcommuter students and I want them to be2ticketed but, taking this thought further, where are they suppose to put their cars?3Theydon'thave the space to put their cars so they are not late for class. The4result for that when you are parking legally you come late to class and face things5like being written down for not attending class which happened to a friendof6mine. The point is that it cannot be the case that the parking lots are full that the7student comes late becauseof5 minutes. This would not be the caseifthere was8more parking lots. ThoughI'mconcerned with parking I am more concerned9with the Hewitt union and the budgeting process. Thank you.10Green keeping in mind that it is not our last say with the budget, how do we11deal with an administrative president who doesn't care about the students?12Tenbergen -I have the impression that the last coupleofyears that the13administration has been shifted from a top down process. Decisions are made14from the top. As a Senate this must be hard so who cannotchange this? WE need15to tell theadministration what we want anddon'tforget that this is a college and16not a profit orientated17Kelland Just so you know, after budget council with the up rise we have tried to18work something out with the comer store so while things are not all things are19being addressed that these things are not fallingondeafears and we are doing20things.21Tenbergen -Itis not only the comer store but is things like Lake Effect Cafe22Cooperman-you brought up a concern with parking so POI to Joe Grant, the23employee parking behind Hart hall that will that be allocated to?24Tenbergen Parking there will be moved to there butI'mnot sure this is my hope25Misercola earlier you were talking about Hewitt, did you now that there are26some structural integrity issues and asbestos.27Tenbergen I understand that Hewitt needs renovation however I do not believe28that allofthe sudden it is bad.29Guerroro will you write your name on the board so I may contact you30Pres. Emeritus Tasceralla it wasn'tjustmy decision to not allocate money to31NYPIRG, it was also the budget council and there was money for civic32engagement for organizations to do the things that NYPIRG did. Also, NYPIRG33will be allowed to come back and go through the Tier process. Just because there34is no money, doesn't mean theywon'tbe on campus. They can become a club35Tanbergen -IfNYPIRG was an SA organization they would lose their leader.36This is a two edge sword because asking them to become a club would forceMr.37Duch to leave and allow him, who is a pain in the [blank] from being on campus38and a burden to administration. The budget cannot be made by a gentleman who39hates NYPIRG40Pres. Miller -I agree with things you say but it is largely my decision to resign a41contract with NYPIRG and it is not that I hate MR. Duch Ijustthink his salary is42too much to pay for.Ifhe wants to come back as a student advisor he could do43that and I would hope they [NYPIRG] would cover that cost. Other organizations44have that and many groups do not have paid advisors. They do things without45paid individuals and this is not a personal gripe. I want to increase spending on46student organizations that work on campus.47Tenbergen -I believe that thejobMr.Duch is more thanjustget paid. He48coordinates throughout the state.

1VP Fields maybe you should set up a meeting with the off-campus senators or2with President Miller to discuss someofthese issues that you feel very strongly3about. And I want to thank you for your comments today.45African Student Organization (ASO)6We were founded in 2004 and we are asking money for the honors dinner. The7first timewehad 109 people and we have had more than 100 people over the8years. The bill is up tonightsowe are going to talk to you about the event and the9dinner.Weare here talk about different things we have done with our own10money sowewant to make sure the money we ask for is being used and the11moneywehave left willgoback to SA.12ASO basically we are here to unite African people on campus to embrace13culture and erase stereotypes. We do a lot on campus and we are a Tier 2 org and14don't have significant funds to do the things we want to do. These aren't enough.15ASO The paperwepassed out is about someofthe things we have done. Some16ofthe fundraiserswehave had etc.17Vanessa Samuels: someofthe programswehave done over the year have been18hip-hop and sisters in law (with the woman's center) and we have talked about19AIDS and Ghana and someofthe eventswehad for money we had a Halloween20candy sale and we raised over 200 dollars and our Christmas sale. WE21participated in the ALANA fashion show. We are trying to raise money for the22dinner. WE plan for a certain amount but more always show up. We need at least232,500 for the meals for everyone.24Adams -ifI remember correctly, last year, you collaborated with LSD and I25think CSA, is there anything like that this year for the dinner?26ASO We tried to with Gospel choir but we had to work a few things out and it27didn't work out. WE will try again but it didn't work. Since it is the endofthe28semester most organizations don't have the money29Bleiberg do you charge afeefor the dinner30ASO -10for students and 7 for e-board members31Trifunovski just to let you know keep trying with the organizationswecan32accessseparate accounts for collaboration.33We have tried and we are but they can't give us any money34Kelland -I understand where you are coming from and all these things can be35worked out with Finance, POI to Senator Adams when will we be meeting?36Adams Monday at 3pm in the SA office I will send out an email37Kelland -ifallofyou can come we can get you more information and finalize38your bill39Guerrero Also, I know that you are trying to help them find money but since it40is their third dinner we should tryto get them this money.41Cooperman -I yield time to the ALANA representative.42ALANA We are also holding a dinner andifyou collaborate for a dinner you43have to give a title so we don't' want to collaboratebecause it is our proudest44moment45Cooperman, I like to congratulate you for coming down and answering our46questions47Trifunovski -I have a suggestion that might work that won't take the limelight so48maybe we can exchange some information49Guerrero -I concur with ALANA.

People always come wejustneed the money.4VP Fields these things can be discussed in Finance5ASO please come and support us tickets are $10 so please come.6 78Mr.Ron Tascerella, Alumnus9I have 30 yearsofhistory with this campus so I have a perspective that you might10not have.I'mgoing to startbyprefacing this discussing my talking aboutmy11involvement with lobbying for the blind in Washington. Unfortunately a lotof12what this country runsbyis lobbying. What I walked away from that event and13looked at what has been coming on from here I decided to speak out and let the14Senate know that the people who are elected are elected to represent the people. I15noticed that manyofthe lobbyists represented the few. When you are debating an16issue, debateitonthe facts notonbroad generalities.Noone represents everyone.17To say so is a pileofgarbage. Deal with the factsnotwith emotions. The last18point I would like to make is something I've tried to makedon'tlet the willofthe19people be cloudedbythe viewsofa couple. I have seen over time that the loud20voice gets the most press and we start to think that the loud voice is the majority.21The truth is the majority is silent. The silent hope that you will do right. The few22speak up and speak loudly and we mistake them for the majority. I encourage you23to form a consensus among the branchesofgovernment and among the students .. 24Personal attacks and personal purpose serve no purpose in a democratic society.25When you stop representing the people that elected you and represent the few you26have allowed the fabricofdemocracy to be torn a bit. Here is should be about the27ideal and the hopes and dreams that this Country has had.Itshould be the purist28formofdemocracy.Don'tlet it start here, or else it only goes down hill from this29point. I think it is important for everyone to stand up and voice their opinions and30voice their concerns and every time someone stands up and speaks their mind, the31person speaking needs to understand the fact that their opinion isnotalways right32it is only right tothem. There is always room for someoneelse'sopinion. There33needs to be room on the table to accept everyone's pointofview34VP Fields -I ask everyone to pleaseturnoffyour cell phoneorput it on vibrate.35 36Biology Club, Michael Pollock, President and Wendy Paterson, Treasurer37Pollock -Idon'tknow the proper order for an appeal and I believe we need the38amountofmoney we are requesting. We have been allocated $750 and thiswon't39cover the cost for the trips. Also, there is the price for parking and tolls and gas.40We travel about 500 miles and thiswon'tcover anything. Without this money we41won'tbe able to goonany trips. There is a price for each car and gas which is42about $1,140 which includes nothing else. Gas has increased and will go up. We43cannot continue to relyonour own members to drive us for community service44events. We are very active and have a lotofmembers. We are Tier 3 and have45guest speakers and do a lotofcommunity service. Nothing stops us fromoffor46on campus. We only use our transportation account for one trip and that is for47three days and takes up mostofour budget. We have to dip into other accounts to48justget to the event. This takes up time and is frustrating. We also went to the

PAGE 11

1Rochester zoo and I got to pet a white rhino. We got the money for the trip but2we didn't get the transportation.3Paterson -Ifwe have to take the money outofour events account we have to ask4our members to pay more. We would like to not have them pay more since we5thinkofit as a gift for the community service they do6Pollock We ask 30 from everyone and we have toturnpeople down because we7don't have enough funding. I don't want to have people pay 100 togoon a trip8Kelland how many members who usually attend9Pollock 30, we had a community service event that had 40. Sometimes during10weatherwehave about10.Depending on the event we can get tops 40 or5011people. When I saw this for the years, that last years mistake is that we didn't use12all the money. This is not mine or this year's mistake. This mirrors their13maximum last time and this is not what I14Pres. Miller -I'mjust wondering what you've learned following SA protocol?15Paterson it has been a very good educationalexperience about budgeting and I16have grown from it17Pollock it was a hard start but after a while just planning a trip it is all done18Bleiberg do you have any fund raisers?19Pollock Yes wedovarious funding20Kelland -I know you said you have 20 to 40 members per event;doyou take any21otherleisure trips?22Paterson its an educational trip. Mostofthe trips we do are community service23Pollock -I would love to do a leisure trip but we save it for the endofthe year24Kelland do theypayoutofpocket?25Pollock 30 dollars and years before it has been 20. We just got hoodies in and26we're using this for fundraising.Weare also doing bake sales. We are doing27things to make money and we are still asking people to pay.2829Latino Student Union (LSU): Christina Blades, Secretary; Amelia San Jorge,30Vice-PresidentofService; and Kathryn Brador, Treasurer31Brador -A lotofpeople have attended this event in the past and we have had to32turnpeople away. There is not a large Spanish community in the areasowe get a33D.J. From the city who we have worked with in the past. He givesusa good deal34which includes flyers and we send them to other schools. The after dinner partyis35also big andifyougoto the dinner it is free butifyou don't then you have to pay.36We need to rent sound equipment and the school does not have it.

Miller we are going to be purchasing equipment for SAPBsoI want47senate to take that into consideration since SAPB will have it. Also, you put in a48request for the after party, where would you hold that?

1LSU Last time it was Club Crystal, this yearwe'rethinking Knightsof2Columbus and Old City Hall but Old City Hall has a policy about people under213which causes a conflict because the people are separated onto two sides. I want4to look into the American Legion. Usually everyone charges $5005Pres. Miller -I want to show the senate that budget council did address a lotof6concerns for your organization.78Equestrian Club, Brittany Muller and Robin Wheeler, StudentslEquestrian Club9Members10We are only appealing for the coaching fee account. You recommend $3,000 we11are appealing for another $850 to pay our coaches for the shows we attend. We12need our coaches at the shows to stand at ringside for support. We have members13who refuse to show up to eventsifour coachesdon'tattend. Their fees have gone14up but youcan'treally deny them. We have two disciplines, English and Western.15Western has two shows and English has one show which goes all day. There are1611shows in each discipline. Our club has been fundraising and we have made17$940 and have spent it all. Other accomplishments are due to our coaches18because our team has become more competitive. We have sent members to19different events (regionaland sectionals) and this is the first time ever we have20sent someone to nationals. Wepayoutofpocket for members which is $572 each21to just compete.22Pres. Miller -I want to comment that you have put in a large budget appeal but I23thinkthat the credit goes to you that this is the most pressing need and I think the24Senate should approve it considering it is so close.25Kelland -I would like to point out that most organizations might contribute $3026or $40 maybe $100 a year but these people spend $572 just for one organization27not including everything else and we are students first. They are committed with28what they do and becauseofthat I concur with President Miller.2930SAVAC31HiI'mBrian the treasurer and this is Kyle the treasurer for next year. We are32appealing four accounts: public relations; we asked for $400 we got $200 we want33$300 for pens and things for opening weekend to get more involvement. We want34to come during summer orientation and I know a few other members would like35to come. That extra money would pay for flyers and perhaps a tourofthe base.36We appeal EMF conferences. The $750 recommended that will cover one37conference we need $250 for a vital sign conferences.Itis a national conference38and it is close [Syracuse, NY] and it will be a great learning experience. The next39account is the Radio replacement CB. $1,000won'tbe enough. We have two40systems and we are appealing for $2,000 for more radios and a defib replacement41CB. We were recommended $2,000 and we need $2,500 when those two come in.42We'll have them and we need them on board at all times.43Kelland do you know who I would speak to about the usageofthe AED?44Pres. Miller -ofthe appeals 2 outof4I agree with. As for the radio replacement,45we bought some radios already. I thought you had enough radios for all aspects.46And the difibulators, we have put in new orders so that would constitute in our47opinion that you are covered. Why would you need more?48SA V AC Next year wejusthad our elections so we have 3 fly cars. Our three49chiefs respond so when the chiefs respond we need to have the AEDs for each car.

SA VAC-Ifone chief is in class and one is in class there is an issue about who would have it Pres. Miller first the radios you are buying are up for replacement in a few years and the compatibility for the defibs in residence halls. SAVAC We can't use the defibs in the halls and we either have to take the padsoffand use our own or else use theirs. This is the same for the city, theycan'tuse ours either. The radios, the town has been revamping the entire radio system.Ifwe purchase 5 radios they'll reprogram our radios for the system. Ski Club, Katelyn, President and Griffin, Student/Ski-Club Member My name is Katelyn andI'mpresidentofski club and this is Griffin and we're her to talk about our appeal. We just moved up to Tier 3 and we would like another 1,000 dollars to take two trips. WE are trying to eliminate the other fees because it is a pain to do that. We used a smaller bus this year because we didn't get enough money so this larger transportation amount will allow us to get the bus and more members could come on the trip. This way we wouldn't have totumdown people. People can drive but someofthem are from Long Island and Buffalo and that would beaIDhour trip. We are Tier 3 organization and we wantasmany people as possible togoon this trip Adams -a little bit was brought to my attention that the Mount Triblanc trip, my question would be do you feel that with more membership now that-letmerephrasedoes winter break affect the amountofpeople to get rides? Katelyn-Theway we schedule trips isn't random; we work with a travel agency that sponsors ski weeks and college weeks. So the company Snow Search is in Mount Triblanc. They host several schools that allgoup there becauseofthis one company. We don't want to take away from class time and this is why it is in the winter. Killington is paid outofpocket and we drive ourselves and about 20 members but this trip increases interest and members. ExecutiveReportSA President Joshua Miller Good evening everyone.Itis nice to stand before you as President. First, before my report, I move to appoint Dan Tascerella as Interim DirectorofFinance. Before being President Dan was DirectorofFinance. I think he is the most qualified person for this position. Pres. Emeritus Tascerella -I was DirectorofFinance before being President.I'ma five year Accounting studentwith a 3.8 GPA. There isn't too much to say really Adams will you come to finance committee this timeDan-Yes Pres. Miller Dan is the most qualified person to take this position on. He will be able to train the next person and hopefully I can have that appointment soon Kelland have you had any other applications for the interim? Pres. Miller My assistants said they weren't that well trained and I think they are qualified but VP Emeritus Mapes Dan is the utmost qualified and he is only the interim director but will be training the next person taking over the Directoroffinance position. Beyond that, we did this same thing last year and Ian Farrell and took it over [DirectorofFinance position] before the next Directoroffinance could be

1chosen; who happened to be Josh Miller. This went smoothly and Ian wasn't2even DirectorofFinance. To have someone who has been DirectorofFinance3and President will be more capable and able to train them [new directoroffinance]4well.5Green what is your agenda for DOF? How are youadvertising the position?6I have received several applications and I will show you in my report the flyersto7publicize the position.8Cooper does your proposed interim DOF hold any weight to who has a choice?9Pres. Miller -Itis my decision10Anderson what typeoftraining are you going to hold for the person who takes11that position?12Pres. Miller -Itwill be from July 1stto the endofthe fiscal year June 30thso the13DOF would be trained over those months.14Pres. Emeritus Tascerella my main would be to train the permanent and show15them the system (pos depreciation sheets) bring him to Culkin Hall and let him16meet all the staff so they can go over principles. Learn the constitution and17bylaws to know how organizations, the Tier process and how SA works.18Anderson So essentially you will use the time up to June 30thto train them.19Pres. Emeritus Tascerella Yes.20Adams -I yield21VP Emeritus Mapes Keep in mind that also it is not in the best interest to just22throw someone into the positionofDirectorofFinance who has not held that23position because they can't even train the person. The closest thing is the24assistant directors who don't want the position.25Cooperman As interim director would you have your trainee come to senate26meetings?27Pres. Emeritus Tascerella Yes, senate meetings and finance meetings as muchas28their schedule permits29Cooperman motion to vote30Mapes Second31VP Fields this needs a 2/3 vote32Appointment Passes3314-0-134 35Pres. Miller -Thankyou senators that was in your best interest and the student's36interest. Here is what has been going on since taking office. I am publicizing the37jobs; this flyer will beallovercampus andifyou want to pick one up feel free.38There is a letter attached that states that it is a stipend position but pending Senate39approval.Itincludes the different positions and I have discussed thejob40objectives with someofthe Senators. So I would like to talk to other Senatorsif41they want outsideofSenate.Itexplains where to get applications and we have it42on the web. These will be going up around campus and it is a nice bright color43Kelland Pointofinformation to anyone: when is our last meeting?44Fields -I can email you that becauseI'mnot positively sure45Kelland -ifeachofthese positions has to be voted on this could conflict with our46schedule47Pres. Miller Only the DOF has to be approved before the end, everyone else can48be done next semester.49VP Emeritus Mapes the last senate meeting is the last week priortofinals

1Trifunovski The 8this the last dayofclass and is our last dayofsenate2Pres. Miller -I have already received applications for 10 jobs and wordofmouth3is spreading.Wewill have people coming in soon.4Cooperman are their vacancies in the Supreme Court?5Pres. Miller Yes, just give me a second I received two resignations from6Associate Justice Justin Colombo and Chief Justice Ben Patterson. You both7have done a stellar job.Wehave three vacancies andweneed to approve them as8well.Wehave received apps from 4 people for these positions. As Dr. Grant9mentioned there is a process for the new space. WE receive a packet andsodid10other organizations.Itexplains our needs and the organizations that got these11packets can join committees to figure out what to do with this space.12My executive agenda now which I will now read to you and submit to the minutes13sothat they maybe included in full:14 15Good evening Senators and my fellow students. I have traveled a long road to be16able to stand here and address youasthe Student Association President and I am17humbled by the opportunity to serve the StudentsofSUNY-Oswego. The18functionsoftheSAPresidency are vast. I plan to utilize the officeofthe19Presidency to improve the experiencesofour fellow students. I will use this20Executive Agendato outline a fewofmy goals as President and invite you all to21work with my administration to achieve these goals.22I feel it would be misleading to start this address with anything but a discussion23on the new Campus Center. As you all have heard, at the beginningofthis24meetingweare scheduled to be in the new space by the beginningofthe fall25semester. I have made our voice heard about the needs for support systems26during this move.Ina meeting with Dean Scharfenberger and Dr. Hughes,we27discussed some aspectsofthe move; manyofwhich included giving organization28presidents and treasurers the ability to return early and help get situated before the29startofthe school year. The college will be providing our organizations with30boxes and moving supplies.Wewill have a system in place in the coming weeks31to designate where items willgoand have a professional moving crew move the32boxes from the Hewitt Union to the Campus Center. Aside from the physical33aspectofmoving into this new space, I plan to have all equipment suchas34computers and other technology in place for the New Year. I would like to utilize35the Leadership training seminar we hold each fallasa wayofintroducing the new36e-boards to the space and becomeaccustomed to our new shared environment.37Moving isn't going to be easy but it will be worth it. I believe the positives for38SAfar outweigh the negative in this move andwewill see increased student39involvement and interaction within our organizations.40Having been a past PresidentofanSAorganization, and now having worked41within theSAe-board, I have seen a real need to improve communication42betweenSAand the organizations and students at Oswego. I believe by further43expanding our Website and using public relations campaigns we can get44information to the students we serve. My plans for the website include expanding45organization useofthe interaction calendar. I would like to see the Senate books,46Supreme Court books, as well as other reports that the library has beensokind to47transfer into digital format available on our website. Ithinkby making this48information available to all students and senators,wewill make research easier49when it comes time to working on billsaswellasbeing able to have an informed

By using our website, print, radio, andTVmedia, I think we can see increased student involvement basedonreaching our constituents in a multitudeoffashions. I would like to see my directorofcommunications teachSAorganizations about the outlets available and work with thePRdirector to teach studentshowto promote their own programs. I would like the communication director to further act as a liaison between the executive and media organizations to ensure alloftheir needs are met during this move. I hope to work with the Senate to achieve the goalsofincreased involvement and welcome ideas and dedicated members to help with this. Anothernewdirector position is the DirectorofCivic Engagement. I have decided not to sign anewcontract with NYPIRG and instead want to try anewroute for engaging students in politics and civic issues. I plan to have this director not only organize a committee to register voters, but also to hold three forums a semester. These will include discussionontopics such as:I)Environmental Concerns 2) Political Awareness and election issues 3) Off-Campus Student Forum: focusontenant rights and, in coordination with the directorofoff-campus housing I have outlined specific achievable goals formydirectors and plan to hold them accountable for real progress in achieving these. I would like to see productive directors who spur activity on campus, set examples for organization presidents and work together to create positive change and attitudes within the SA.Byholding my directors accountable we will see productive student employees working to improve the college experience for every SA fee paying student. I will not tolerate individuals who sit idle and expect to still be keptonboard.Byworking with my executive board in their timesofneed and supporting them in performing the initiatives I have outlined, I believe we can be successful. I have asked the senate to raise the stipends we offer to executive board members. I feel the tasks I have outlined for the directors justify the increase and appreciate the senate's consideration into the matter. I would like to see the senate and my director's working togetheronprojects, and will promote an environment that promotes teamwork and support. Duringmyweekly reports to come I will give a synopsisofwhat is happeningonthe e-board. I will have my e-board meetings held once a week at which I will get reports from my directorsontheir progress. Should I notbeable to answer a question the senate has about a project oneofmy directors is working on, I wouldask the director to come to senate the following week to address you all and update you themselves. I will be recommending that the directors come to one senate meeting a month. Again, I will holdmydirectors accountable for meeting deadlines and achieving goals I set out. In order to bring SA together and build a strong future for our constituentsinthe new space, we must plan to set the standard and the pace forSAproductivity. Over the next few weeks I will be brining threenewcandidates to the senate for confirmation to beputonto the Supreme Court. Iamexcited by the amountof

PAGE 17

1applications we have already received and look forward to meeting the new2applicants. I have scheduled interviews with the candidates in the weeks to come.3I am also lucky to be able to appoint a new Chief Justice to the court in the4coming weeks. I see many opportunities for our student government.5The main goal I seek to achieve will be a smooth move into the new Campus6Center. You may be wondering how we should measure success. To me, success7can be measured by continued student programming and spurred student interest8in SA organizations. I hope this year can be one in which we see SA and SA9organizations come together into a unified body, and promote successful years for10each other.11Kelland -I have a small concern about the survey, it is dated March 23rdwhich12was Monday, and my concernisthat it was sent out after the deadline. I have had13a coupleofpeople come to me about how they wouldn't have time to do this.14Miller the deadline has been extended. I will help them get onto the committee15just have them come to my office.16Green -I'mjust confused about this "smooth move" to the Campus center.I was17told we were hiring someone full time to do this?18Pres. Miller No, not at all, Ithinkyou're confusing this. No student services19will be open next year because President Debra Stanley would not sign our budget20ifany student services were open in Hewitt. Cindy'sjobwas never to move us.21Itwas only to run the student store or be an advisor. She will still be an employee22Green What is Cindy Donovan's salary?23Pres. Miller $43,000 and she has been an employee for 30 years. We also24include a retirement package.25Cooperman Pointofinformation to President Miller: are you saying the school26will not allow SA to run these organizations but will be doing it themselves?27Pres. Miller Yes so there will be one organization that will handle this all so we28don't have separate services. We can only run services the campus will let us run.29We still want to show our support for these services30Cooperman Other student services that wesupply-forinstance the comer store31and check cashing, I don't see a streamlining purpose for them to do that?32Pres. Miller They are doing it because they want to do it33Kelland you were saying that oneofthe things about the tickets does that mean34we're eliminating Tyler box office?35Pres. Miller No, they will all be tied together so you could buy the events at36various locations. This will make it easier and we have been assured there will37not be a usage fee. We believe Cindy is the most qualified person for this task38Misercola the reason they are going to be on the same system is that the school39is going digital40Trifunovski Do we have a written agreement between this and campus life?41Pres. Miller -I have a meetingtostart outlining a contract to ensure that SA's42interest is represented.43Anderson -I was going to ask the same question.44Green I yield my time to Tim Duch45Duch what I have to say has nothing to do with this issue; I was going to talk46about something different4748SA Vice-President Andre Fields

On a different note, I4came to the Senate to say that is has been an honor to serveasan Associate5Justiceofthe Supreme Court and I recommend to the Senate that some sortof6reward be awarded to Chief Justice Ben Patterson who has done a lotofwork and7commands a lotofrespect.SoI hope that you are listening to this and honor my8request.9CJ. Patterson -I haven't prepared any remarks andithas been an honor and10privilege to serve for three years. I would like thank the administration; going all11the way back to the Sutherland administration, the Farrell administration and the12Tascerella administration. The court is moving along and I see good things13coming from this organization. Thank you very much.1415VII.SenatorIssuesForum16VP Fields Senator Brody Mapes has asked to address the Senate at this time17Mapes -I'mstanding here before you to apologize to my fellow Senators,18constituents, and students. I have made mistakes as Elections Committee Chair,19and I must hold myself accountable. As partofthis apology I will be stepping20down from my seatasElections Committee Chair and I will be resigningasa21Senator. Before IgoI would like to takethis opportunity to speak from the heart.22I have been a memberofthis organization for two years, and especially during the23timesofthe elections I have devoted moreofmy time and effort into SA than any24other aspectofmy life. My actions as Elections Chair andasSenator were not25malicious, nor was there ever intent to do anything but my duties, or act in the26best interestofSA.As elections committee chair, in past weeks I have been27under more scrutiny than any other position in the entiretyofSA. Again, I will28admit, I have made mistakesaschair; although I do believe these do be rather29minor procedural errors, but due to this scrutiny and exploitationofthese errors in30the publics eye, many have lost sightofthe hard work and dedication I have put31into this position, and have lost sight that although one may not like the results, it32was a successful election, which furthermore internally ran without a hitch. And I33mustthankthe long hours and aid from my committee for that. This brings me34my next point, just as the Senate is a united body, so is the elections committee.35One cannot separate me from my committee, just as one cannot excise the blame36solely upon me.Ifyou believe I have failed, then we, the Elections Committee37have failed. I solely have become a scapegoat, and my existence as such can no38further be exemplified by the protest that occurred in Senate a few Tuesday's ago.39Historically .. .it is ignorance ... ignorance to the facts that allows for the existence40ofa scapegoat. I would like to point out the resultsofthe Cameron Jones v41Joshua Miller Supreme Court case. The ruling shows that I was in fact not at fault42when I signed Joshua Miller's PO, a move I took more than a considerable43amountofheat for. This case however was important in pointing out that there44are further yet, fallacies in the election law. Two years experience with the45Elections Committee has taught me that these are serious, underlying problems,46with no clear or simple solution in sight. I believe serious consideration should be47given for the entire legislate body to put their minds together searching for48solutions, not just the elections committee,ifthis patternoflaw suits and court49cases is ever to be stopped. SA is a student organization on this campus. As such,

PAGE 20

1it is a place for us to growasstudents, individuals, and adults. We are not perfect,2and I am not perfect. I have made mistakes. But look at yourselves as well.3Have you made mistakes?I'mtrying to learn and growasa person,aswe all4should push ourselves to achieve this same goal. I have received little support5from the senate or my committee, and instead I have been attacked and criticized.6I would like to leave you all with a quote from T Roosevelt. "The only man that7makes no mistakes is the man that does nothing."89VP Fields first off, we all do make mistakes and I want to thank you [Brody10Mapes] for your service. Me and Brody came in during the same time and we11both actually ran for elections committee and I won. When I ran for Vice-12President, I stepped down and he took over. We have all made mistakes and I13think itiscommendable that he has admitted to making mistakes and that is a14great thing. I thank you for your service and stay a partofthe elections law15process.16VPEmeritus Mapes -I wanted to say to you guys but more so to Brody that I am17ultimately proudofyou not only as a sister but also as a peer and I commend you.18Cooperman -I worked with Senator Mapes on the election committee and I have19seen the hard work and he has been a target becauseofthis controversy but he20tried to do right and I don'tthinkwe would have gotten so far as we did without21Brody.22Trifunovski -I have to say that despite what people may think, I got a chance to23know Mapes and I didn't want to fall into that trap that he was the VP brothers24and I wanted to judgehimasa person and I can tell you that from the many hours25that Mr. Mapes has proven himself andhasdone a phenomenaljobin his position26as elections chair. He deserves everyone's respect and I personally thank you and27have enjoyed our time together.Thankyou.28Oakman -I'mtrying nottocry 'cause I only worked with Brody for a long time29and I like to thinkofthe fact that since we disagreed a lot but personally heis30wonderful and he has worked very hard and has faced a lot and I just want to tell31him that becauseofany disagreements I think he did a wonderfuljoband to stand32up there and do that is just wow, I have a lotofrespect for you that makes up for33any disagreement we may have had. Good luck to anything you do outsideof34Student association.35Pres. Emeritus Tascerella Senator Mapes has been an asset over the years and I36think people still need to look at it that a lotofproblems that came about were not37just the chair but perhaps the entire committee. Perhaps the disagreements and38inability to come to decisions and the inability for the chair to make a touch39decision.Itis toughtomake decisions without the restofthe committee having40your back. Maybe you all should step down and we have a fresh new committee41Adams -I would just like to say Senator Mapes it has been really great having to42work with you ...Iknow that this has election year--and I think everyone would43agree--has been oneofthe craziest things we have seen. I just have to say that I44respect you that much more to show strength through it and momentsofdoubt not45caving under pressure and I respect you so much for that.46Kelland Senator Mapes has been in Senate just as much as I have and the next47meetingwehave will not be the same without Brody. You have helped Senate48grow and I can truly say you will be sorely missed. I could say so much more but49I concur with everything else that has been said.

You also owe us a dollar but on a serious issuewewould like to remind the senate on a speedy action on the election law particularly with the part we have struck down VP Emeritus Mapes even thoughheis my brother this is all a shock to me and he didn't tell me until before the meeting andI'min complete shock and I thought he would carry this through to the end;I'mproudofyou and I havesomuch to say.

I love you and yeah. Trifunovski -I have some other issues Fields -I have senator Bronson but I can put you down. Green -I yield time to Tim Duch Duch despite what is going on Iama professional and I have taught different typesofpeople and I know this is more sentimental bull but you are oneofstand up individual. Bronson -I would like to address my fellow senators that late last week when you send out an email to the senate list not only do senators get it but also does administration officials. So I would like to issue a formal apology for any offensive language I use. I would like to say that I just use humor in my emails. I like to keep things loose and I didn't mean any harm by my email. Trifunovski oneofthe things I would like to bring up is Constitution forum. This is something Senator Bronson and I have thoughtofand we would like to hold a forum for our constiuents and everyone to sit down andgoover the constitution to seeifanyofour constiuents have any issues with it. We can't memorize every wordofthe constitution but this would be great for a brush up. We still have to come up with a date andifthere is any other senators who would like to help please let me know. I know I comeoffasa strong vocal person in the senate and I can say that some people don't like me which is fine butifyou have any issues or concerns,I'mnot going to bite you I encourage you to come to me for any issues you might have. I know some people think I favor certain people or certain groups but, in my defense, it took me to the very last minute to decide who to vote for and I have to say that take a long hard look before I make decisions. I have put a lotofwork into this senate and it seems I face a lotofadversity from this senate and allI'masking for is some respect. I can agree with people and I would appreciate itifpeople gave me that respect. I understand that Mr. Mapes has done a lot for elections and I understand what Mr. Tascerella is saying about support your chair but I have done a lot and we have come to agreements. Certain things have not gone through thatweworked on and despite the difference between people we can continue to work. Soifyou have any issues with me please come to me. Kelland -I would like to apologize, I have bronchitis andI'msorryifI'minterrupting the proceedings. Second, I have a small problem with my committee. We have been running at below half full. We have two open seats and since my committee is with 2 other chairs,wedon't have a vice-chair. This is a poor sign to other organizations and students on campus. I urge senators to step up and join,ifthey're able, the Health and Safety committee. My committee gets a lot done and we need some help.

We should all show each other respect andifyou have problems with another senatordon'ttalk to someone else about it, talk to that person first so that that issue will be solved. Thirdly,I'malso workingona comprehensive seat better than the one in our binders outliningRobert's RulesofOrdersto better infonn people. That is all I have to say. VP Fields -I willjustsay this once: I will not tolerate any disrespect toward senators, myself or the executive branch and I hope the executive branch will not tolerate it as well.Ifyou do this, you will have to speak to me personally. Anderson -I would like to yield my time to Tim Duch Duch we did submit a budget a long time ago and we did not receive a notification that other Tier organizations received but you will all receive a resubmissionofthat in your mailboxes. Secondly, I would like to remind the senate that they are a distinct body from other bodies in this forum. As a Senate, you have your own, you are your own legislative body. As the CaseChadeav, Greenv.Tascerellapointed out, the executive branch doesn't have the authority to circumvent you. Not oneofyou stepped up and stoppedMr.Tascerella. Going back to the remarksofMr.Sugar andMr.Tascerella [Ron], you as a Senate can make up your own mind regardlessofwhat President Miller plans to do. NYPIRG is outofthe question; NYPIRG be damned. You have your own mind about the budget and allocations as far as that is concerned.Don'tforget that. Again, it is vital to the healthofthe body to be a systemofchecks and balances. You could have saved the Supreme Court the hassleifyou had confronted the executive. Anderson, I concur and yield Pres. Miller -Mr.Duch is not a Tier organization and they do not take part in the Tier process so that is why they didn't receive a budget. NYPIRG is a contracted organization and I will not sign a contract with them. Adams -I concur with Pres. Miller to sign and make contracts. The Senate has the final authority over the budget butifan executive is not signing a contract it doesn't make sense to sign the contract. I yield Green there are rumors about some resolutions that I was going to pass and oneofthem would be to have President Miller at least negotiate with NYPIRG. NYPIRG has been on campus for16years and has been a valuable service. NYPIRG has value and it is worth more than zero dollars. I think this debateisn'tover and that an organization that has beenoncampus for16years is worth considering. Accordino -I yield to Kelland Kelland -justto let you knowMr.Duch, in regard to Christopher Sugar's remarks about what you say he said about standing up to President Tascerella...Duch hedidn'tsay that, I said that. Kelland -Itshould be known that Mr. Sugar was a Senatoratthe timeandinresponse to Senator Green,ifyou did make a resolution like that I would want to see it because I wouldbevery interested. Anderson -I yield to Tim Duch Duch -I guessI'mgoing to come clean and sayhowI see my position. The whole pointofthe NYPIRG PC is to empower the students and I never seemyroleinconflict with students. Right from the beginning I felt that people who

And there are2techniques, believe it or not,toget peoIeto vote.Itisnotassimpleasyou think3itis.I have had to sit down with any students to convince them to vote.4Students are the most valued commodi in the worldsodon't underestimate your5power. I commend Senator Trif for a lotofthings but mainly for this: the6constitutional forum. You guys need t know this stuff, you really,really, really7do.Very large things come to rest n very small pointsoflaw.Itis vitally8important that you know what theheis goingon.Information is the key. I9can't speak forMr.Sugar about what h did or did not know about a check on the10executive branch.11Bell -I guess I have been on the c pus for 7 years and in the 7 years I have12worked here there have always been c ntroversy about NYPIRG on campus and13the controversyasI have seen it has ben around the fact that it is a lotofmoney14that the SA is paying for the services fNYPIRG. And SA, I discoveredaspart15ofthe group, has a lotofneeds coming to them.SoI think itisa fair thing to ask16themifthey areofthe value that you e paying. To me, it seemsasthough the17issue has becomesodivisive that I essifI were among the officersofSA I18would probablybegoingtothe stude and saying "do you want NYPIRG here19or not" and insteadofmaking thedecsion without the input why not have them20put more input init.I personallythiitistoo much money but Idothink it is21your money going into thissowhy no give people a chance. Also, I think itisa22shame that your group accepts the resi ationofSenator Mapesofwhathediddo23isadmirable but resigningfromthe sociation is extreme andifheweremy24employee I would not accept his resi tion25Cooperman -I would like to yield tim to Vice-President Emeritus Mapes26VPEmeritus Mapes -wehave thatguwho comes in and yells atmethatweare27going over time buthehas surgery dweonly have this room until10and its289:45 now.Soperhapswecan wrap thi up and move to another room.29Cooperman -I motion to close Senato Issue's forum.30Objections from manyofthe Senators31Cooperman -I withdraw that motion32Green about Emeritus status, I woul like to say that it is not an attack on Dan33or Natasha then I will deaden itcopletely.

I have been thinking about this for a year and have tried to get information and have not been able to.Weasked to see their books and they told us we would have to drive down to NYC to view them. I think 50,000 is too cumbersome Anderson -I yield to Tim Duch Duch you will be getting everything you are discussing and clearly there are some issues and you each have the right to make up your mind. Regardlessofthe executive branches stance on this you are a free branch.Don'tjust go along with the flow without knowing what you are talking about. A lotofpeople have heard things about NYPIRG and muchofthat has been one sided. Make sure you get to know what is going on and that is what a referendum is all about. The time he is talking about [Duch being in Binghamton] was Spring break and there were no students here. Working here is hard and it is not an easy thing to do. I work12hours a day and helping people with these issues is hard.Ittakes gumption [replacement for inappropriate word]. There will be an opportunity to discuss this next week and make it your duty to get both sidesofan issue. Trifunovski Before I ask for a closeofsession, hopefully the special election coming up will be used as a tool to show that the students support or are against and perhaps affect our decisions as senators. For both parties sake, we will be able to hear students and ourjobas senators will help make a better decision. I have no idea where to go with it but I guess I have to withdraw the closing. Trifunovski Motion to close Adams Objection, can we keep in the future a limit on senator issues forum. VP Fields Senator Kelland is recognized Kelland One thing that has come up. WE are student's first and Senator Nau has had to call into work for 3 weeks because we have gone over. Can we limit our time and discussion. I think this is the reason we have lost so many Senators and we cannot afford to lose so many senators. I know our executive member wouldbewilling to meet outside as wellasour own outside involvement Guerrero -I yield my time to interim Directoroffinance Tascerella Pres. Emeritus Tascerella -I would say that the referendum is non-binding and oneofmy reasons for opposing it was that it was for contract negotiations whichisa presidential rule. Guerrero motion to close Trifunovski objection, I know it's non-binding I just want to knowifstudents support NYPIRG on campus.

We24would like that re-referred tonight and I would like to look at that some more. I25want to take a long look at the constitution and do some housecleaning on it like26spelling and grammar.

We have it pretty much setup. Since this is36taking up our time we haven't been able to look at former President Tascerella's37election law suggestions.

I would like to get people on the same page to get46this thing through. I feel an election especially has been stagnant in some areas47and we should let bygones be bygones and work for change.48 49

1Finance, Senator Adams2We have a numberofbills this evening and we have been working on the budget3and have met several times this week to discuss the budget. We will be having a4Finance committee-a-thon Monday at 3pm. We will talk about the bills tonight.56Involvement, Senator Oakman7Senator Trifunovski spoke in Senator Oakman's place8We have not been able to meet and we are currently putting up posters. I will talk9to Oakman about this1011Adams Finance has one open seat.12Fields -I would like to address that next week when all the new senators can read13over the committees and give them a chance.1415CCRC, Senator Misercola16VP Fields Senator Misercola is not here but Vice President Emeritus Mapes is a17memberofthat committee18VP Emeritus Mapes Nothing dramatically has changed since last time I gave the19report but I am looking for volunteers. I would like more clarification on this and20would like President Miller and Vice-President Fields to attendifthey can. There21is going to be a lot going on this month and we will need a lotofvolunteers for22this. On topofthat I would like to say this: I am going totryto do my darndest23about this traffic light. People are backed up from the corner to the President's24House [Shady Shore] and I know this is a huge problem.25Kelland that backup also blocks SAVAC from getting out to answer calls.26Duch -I know that NYPIRG's Hunger and Homeless person was interested in27working with you on that so please let me know.28VP Emeritus Mapes get a holdofme.2930Health and Safety, Senator Kelland31Sorry about leaving. Last Wednesday, my committee met with Chief Adams and32talked for an hour anda half and I have really good notes. We are coming closer33for a bill or rather a resolution about the snow storm and what occurred there. We34met with Professor Patrick Murphy and we have a meeting with the Provost.35Some other issues, we.aregoing to write a letterofconcern about the plowingand36the speed limit on town roads that are adjacent to the property specifically Swift,37Washington and West End. As you know, that is the one that Senator Adams had38concerns about with people driving during white out conditions. For allofyou, in39caseofanother storm the grounds crews they plow based on priority and that is40the main roads, fire hydrants, faculty lots and commuter lots then resident lots.41This is in the student handbooks where it says that it may take up to five days for42resident lots to be cleaned. Thisisfor emergency reasons, thinkofwhat would43happenifthere was a fire or an ambulance needs to travel on the roads. The44school did a lot helpingschools to get cars out and paid a tow operator to get their45cars towediftheir cars were unable to start. Only25vehicles got towed including46those that requested to be towed.Asfar as class cancellation, the school has an47agreement with two meteorologist and oneofthem is the Channel 9 storm team48where Chief Adams can call them up and give them the storm updates. They are4990% accurate andtryto save us mostofour days. Make sure youconstituents

Snow ball fights are actually not illegal on campus butiflarge groups start they will be broken up. Another big issue that was addressed is Chief Adams with the City Traffic board. The main problem we have now with Washington and Sheldon it is the community, the campus and the city on one side and the community members don't want a traffic light there.Ifanyone has any concerns Chief Adams is willing to work with you just get in touch with her. Also,weneed to make surewehave a student representative on parking committee. Bronson Pointofinformation to Senator Kelland: do you know Chief Adams's extension? Kelland -I don't knowoffhand just call UP and they'll forward the call to her office Green what would it take to get on Parking Committee? Kelland -I'mnot sure you should talk to President Miller. There is an issue with a rape on this campus and there is no report made with UP. Until that occurs there can be no discussion at this time Mapes are you referring to the Varsity Hockey Players? Kelland Yes Mapes we should wait then to see what happens Kelland All it is rumors so unless you get in touch with the source we have to wait and see.

We, the election committee want to incorporate Pres. Tascerella's revisions into the election law but we are not ready to vote on them just yet. WE think it would be wiser to table it until the Election's committee has a more solid viewofthe election law, whatwehad envisioned it to be, before we vote on it. We went to use President Tascerella's as a foundation. Therefore we ask to table this bill. Motion to table.

Since I don't have an overhead I'm going to pass6these out. Basically what we did was met with President Tascerella and Former7Chief Justice Ben Patterson. The original bill by Ian Farrell was similar but8different to the appendix we are suggested and there were other valid points that9were contributed by Former Senator Farnsworth to change the bill.10Strike lines 16-18 the last "be it further enacted" because we also have the titleof11the bill changed to Amendment to SLE41because we are really amending the old12appendix. Please look at the old appendix. The original bill had a "B" under 4A.13We added 6 and 7 in the new appendix about an official record for the Supreme14Court to know which organizations are valid organizations.15Look at number6.16Look at number7.17The problem was organizations hadtochange constitutions every year but they18don't change them every year. This just backs up the timeofthe Court to look19through things and find things that are different. We changed it so they just have20to register with Student Organization Services (SOS) and only submit a21constitutionifthey are making changes.22Pres.

1formal lounge. That is all I really have to say this week so I willturnit over to2my associates.3 4Matthew Cirigliano, Student and NYPIRG Consumer Advocacy Leader5My name is Matthew Cirigliano and I am a freshman currently living in Hart Hall.6I am also the leader ofNYPIRG's Consumer Advocacy Project.7Currentlyweare gaining support for the "Cell Phone BillofRights." I am sure that a8good portionofyou senatorsaswellasmanyofyour constiuents own and use cell9phones regularly. This bill will help protect cell phone users by:101)Giving consumersa15day period after receiptoftheir first monthly bill to cancel11their contract without paying the termination fee.122) Requiring that customers get a clearly organized billing statement written in13"plain english" that explains all monthly fees and charges.143) Giving customers a good-faith estimateofwhat their monthly bill will cost based15upon information supplied by the consumer.164) Providing clear, pointofsale disclosuresofservice area maps as wellasthe17availabilityofEmergency911service.18I would also like to add that NYPIRG has helped me out greatly in honing my skills19and giving me a way to reach out to the community.Ifit weren't for NYPIRG my20academic standing would be less than lack luster.2122Joe Stelling, Regional Supervisor ofNYPIRG23I've been here to a coupleofthese things.I'mthe regional supervisorofNYPIRG.24This weekend is our statewide Student action conference. Students from around the25state get together and get to meet andtalkabout things they do and have in common.26You meet a lotofpeople and have fun. This will be at SUNY-Albany and all2127chapters ofNYPIRG willbethere. I would like to talk about today briefly about the28proposed budget that NYPIRG was allocated0 dollars which amounts to us not29asking for any money. We fall under miscellaneous contracted services which we are30not. WE are a student organization and are recognized bySOSand we have a student31boardofrepresentatives. Even though the president signs a contract, it is still up to32the Senate in deciding the budget. When deciding these things they have to be made33in a view point neutral manner. Section14ofour financial policy. This doesn't just34apply to Tier 3 orgs; it applies to any group andwedeservethis consideration. We35contribute to the educational opportunities on this campus. The internships and the36skills we bring to students are very strong. Also the cultural, political and37philosophical debate on campuses to increase discourse no matter what sideofthe38spectrum you fall under.Itisclear that NYPIRG offers a wide arrayofprograms that39are unparalleledthanany other group on campus and while others can do the same;40they can't come close to what we do. You shouldn't decide on funding NYPIRG on41your own basis but on what your constiuents believe. I implore you, the senate, to go42back and look at that budget request to look at what we do and revisit the issue and43offer an appropriate amountoffunding on campus.I'mnot asking you to just put44$49,000 back in but just the same due consideration that any other student group45would getasthey fall under these priorities and criteria guidelines4647Justin Tossas, Spoken Writers Guild President2

1Good evening Senate, I coming tonight to infonn you that asofasof5:35 we have2taken action against the SAPB for responses that were detrimental against us. We3have cited 4 offenses against them in which I would like to infonn you about.4As I have cited they have questionable practices inside the campus offices as they5tried to investigate our event and overturn our reservations and other practices inside6the Lifestyle center in investigating our perfonnance and have tried to overturn our7perfonnance which has been approved. They have said this was their actions and a8There has been a refusal by them to stay in contact with us for 3 weeks. They9They have asked the lifestyles center to We feel this is not a positive situation and we10have tried to contact with them and we still want to work with them but tonight I just11want to come to the Senate to infonn themofthese actions and work with Josh Miller12to arbitrate this situation13We still want to work with them but they have stepped away from the table and they14have taken action against the SWG.1516Westfall-When would this event take place?17Tossas-Itis May 3rdat 7:30. We wanted to work with SAPB and obviously 7pmis18early for our prime event and we had this time in mind to work with them19unfortunately they had no interest in working with us and they have not20communicated with us about it.21VP Fields Have you taken some action against SAPB and is that legal action or just22sit down at the table and come to tenns?23Tossas we have sent an email and hope to come to tenns. We do not want to bash24them or their name but we have sent an email to the Lifestyle center to pay no25attention to SAPB's offers and we hope you would encourage Joshua Miller to allow26our programs to go on. We would rather notbebullied or notbepushed around asif27we didn't exist because we do exist and I think it is a bitter sweet day that our28correspondence that the Lifestyle's center was going to give us 100 for our event after29our presentation30Westfall First and foremost thanks for bringing this to our attention and do you31want the senate to get involved or are you comfortable just working with Pres. Miller?32Tossas Wedon'twant we want it dealt with in the most discrete way and we have33full confidence in President Miller's abilities and we just ask you support him in the34arbitration in this situation.35 36African Student Organization.37Hi everyoneI'mVanessa Samuel, the directorofcorrespondence. We are here this38week to stress the fact that the dinner is important and we have done some events39during the year and we are stressing the fact that this is important and that every year40we exceed the limitofthe people who attend. WE have tried to get our name outon41campus and every time we have a dinner we exceed the limit and need to42accommodate everyone. Our budgetislow and will not cover the costs. We took the43necessary steps and have gone to Finance committee. Yesterday we met with finance44and we gave them more detail about our dinner and we are requesting 2100 minus the45money we haveinour budget. This will cover decorations and entertainment. WE46have done fundraising but it does not cover everything we need. We will be a Tier 347organization and are moving up48Adams Your flier says your ticketsonsale?3

I wasn't able to attend last weeks13meeting, but I am here to express my brief experience in pursuitofSA President and14a coupleofother concerns. From the beginningofthe campaign it startedoffgreat15but clearly ended with the cards clearly stacked high.Wecurrently have a student16government with no checks and balances; where it is okay to be unethical; where it is17ok to have a judicial body who arbitrarily throws out policy and procedure. A18legislative body who makessuggestions that people joins the Senate rather than19upholding the responsibility they signedupfor. Not to mention chaos that plagues20that Senate elections committee, et cetera, et cetera. I would be here forever21discussing the many errorsofthis organization and manyofits officials. But, that is22not my purpose or goal. I want to thank all those who helped to contribute to my23campaign and the elections process. I am extremely grateful for all your efforts. I24look forward to continuing my mission as a student leader on Oswego's campus and25you have not heard the last from me. I have gone on the record before and I shall do26so again by congratulating Joshua Miller as President. I wish you a successful term27and I am certain that we will be working together to benefit this organization and the28greater campus community in the near future.I'dlike to give a personal thank you to29current Vice-President Andre Fields and Senator Nicolina Trifunovski, Senator Green,30Senator Oakman, Senator Cooperman, and former Vice-PresidentScott Robinson for31your kind words and constant levelofsupport. I would also like to give special32thanks goes out to former Senator and current clerk Christopher Sugar for his33dedication, loyalty and insight.34Thank you.3536Carlton O'Neil, DirectorofStudent Association Programming Board37I heard that Justin Tossas was here speakingofthe problems with SAPB and SWG38and I wanted to just let the Senate know that Josh is going to speak to both groups.39What happened is Tatiana had asked Justin about any special events SWG was40planning and Justin said no and she asked him togotheir E-board to make sure. He41came back to us and Justin said we could have the ThursdayofMay and then Josh42signed contracts.Itis too late to cancel since contracts have been signed and posters43have been put in. T-shirts are made up and wecan'terase that. Josh is going to work44with both groups to figure something outsowe both can be involved. I just wanted to45stress that to the Senate.46Cooperman Thanks for the details!47Westfall-Was there a conflict over physical space?4

PAGE 38

1O'Neil Yes over the main lounge because originally SAPB had it and we went2through Holly Stone and got the clearance but we at SAPB don't want to take over3the whole space and not include SWG in what they want to do. We would like4everyone to sit at the table and work together.56VI. Executive Report7Speaking on behalfofPresident Miller, ChiefofStaff Timothy Farnsworth8Since President Miller couldn't be here tonightheasked me to deliver his executive9report to the senate:10Good Evening Senators. I am sorry I am not able to give you this update myself I11have a previous engagement. I have appointed Tim Farnsworth as my ChiefofStaff12and have askedhimto give this address tonight which will elaborate on a numberof13issues we are currently working on.14NYPIRG: I know allofyou have received packets earlier this week from Tim Duch15whichhebrought to tier 3 Budget Council. As you look through these packets keep in16mind that this paper work does not apply to NYPIRG. Whether or not they handed it17in, they were told this was unnecessary because they are not a Tier 3 organization.18This process is reserved to Tier 3 organizations and I ask that you all read through19your fmancial policy and ensure you understand our tier system for organizations and20see the difference between a contracted service and a student run organization.21The last pageofthis packet is a "break-down" or what certain costs associate with the22$49,000 contractwepay to NYPIRG. I have received this break-down a numberof23times and requested a further breakdownofACTUAL costs for these programs. I24have not received such a breakdown even though I have asked repeatedly. Further as25President Emeritus Tascarella assertshehas asked for a numberoffinancial26document from NYPIRG which according to our contractsweare entitledto and we27have still not received this:28"NYPIRG will make available an annual audit prepared by an independent certified29public accountant to the Student Association President and DirectorofFinance upon30request. NYPIRG will allow the SA President to examine its financial books and31records upon reasonable notice."3233In an email I sent out this morning I asserted this request again. Oneofthe main34reasons I plan to not sign a NYPIRG contract this year is that we have not seen proof35that the money we pay NYPIRG benefits the StudentofSUNY Oswego. This is36something we must take into consideration according to the BoardofTrustee37Guidelines. Further, I ask that you all look at the Budget we have proposed to the38Senate. Not were we able to lower our initial fee increase from $89 to $88 but we,39were able to give more funding to our organizations both Tier 2 and Tier 3 alike. This40budget will promote new programming on campus and interaction between students.41It will bring student who previously have not seen a benefitoftheir SA into SA and42show them what the potentialofSAis!I want you all to take time when voting on43this budget to think about EVERY student that will be affected by this budget and not44small few. Know that by moving away from contract like the one with NYPIRG we45can better fund our student run initiatives and get better results. Keeping NYPIRG on46campus would be the easy thing to do at this point. SA will not be bullied into signing47a contract that does not benefit our students. I will however, accept the challenge to48create a new plan by which to inform studentsofcivic issues, ensure SUNY Oswego5

PAGE 39

1students' views are represented in Albany, and challenge the campus body to be2civically engaged. The keystone to ensuring this engagement is getting out the vote. I3have a numberofnew initiatives I want to bring to campus. As the first step to this4plan, I have asked the senate to fund the positionofCivic Engagement in the budget.5I see this position key to making this plan become a reality.Ifwe choose now not to6venture out andtrysomething new, we will never know what we could have7accomplished on our own. We will be back here next year and the year after and8years after that fighting again and again over this issue. Howeverifnow we accept9the challengeIfyou put faith in me and the studentsofSUNY Oswego and10yourselves we could create something amazing and set standards for other. Or we11could fail and next year bring NYPIRG back?!? But at least we will have tried! We12are students and we can achieve great things given the opportunity. I am ready to13accept the challenge!14 15VP Fields There is one more person for public comment. Brenda from American16Marketing Association1718American Marketing Association19Hi everyone,I'mBrenda from AMA,I'mvice=presidentoffinance so acting20treasurer. AMA is to urge a personal and professional environment for our21members. We are very new, only a year old, but we have done some projects22around the community. We do some small business projects and provide23marketing services tothem. We have gone to High schools and Johnson Hall to24do presentations.Wearegoing to do an event. What we are asking is for 3025dollars for battleofthe bands. Our goal is to reach out to all the students to offer26an alternative to go out and join AMA to go out and achieve some sortofincome.27We did some fundraising at Fajita Grill. Battleofthe bands will be on May 3rd28from 8pm to midnight in Hewitt Union ballroom. Everything is booked, we have29the bands. We just need 30 dollars for oneofthe bands to get here from Potsdam.30Adams -Ifyou would like someone to sponsor your bill I can do that.31AMA This is my first time here and we are very new32Guerrero thank you for coming and you did very well for your first time33Hammond when is the date for that?34AMA 8pm to Midnight in the ballroom3536SA Vice-President Andre Fields37Hello everyone, before I give my opening speech that I was suppose to give last38week but due to time I was unable to, I would like to say a few things:39This Friday student assembly will take place with Senators Bronson, Trifunovski,40Guerrero, President Miller, Tim Farnsworth and myself. Also, I want to talk to41you all about your goals: what you want to do where you are going and what I can42do with you. Come by my office to discuss this sometime in the next few weeks.43For the Committee chairs, I have sent out templates and I want you to start giving44me a report by that template so I can have reports for the minutes. Now I will45give you my "inaugural" speech,ifthat is what you wantto call it:4647Good evening Senators, Membersofthe Executive Branch, students, and guests.48I would first like to say that it is a honor to now lead the body from whence I6

PAGE 40

1came. 1 have learned a lot from manyofyou in ways that you may not even know.2Upon taking the oathofoffice on April1,2007, 1 made a pledge to preserve,3protect and defend the constitutionofthe Student Association. 1 take that very4seriously and hope all my colleagues in this room do as well, from President to5Senators to Justicesofthe court. Both you and 1 have a responsibility as elected6officials to answerquestions to mobilize and take action so that the interests and7needsofour electorate are met! A lotoftimes we get so caught up in doing8things in SA that we forget who we are really here to serve! We must always9remember howwegot here; who we are responsible to; and for whom we work!10My goal as your Vice-President is to never forget how 1 got there, to whom 1 am11responsible and most importantly, for whom 1 workfor!1 have laid out four point12plan:131)First, we must increase involvement within our Student Association Senate.14The SA constitution states that the maximum amountofseats we may have is15sixty-six (66) and the minimum is thirty-three (33). Right now we have1916student Senators, with two faculty representatives.Mygoal is to increase that17number to at least33by the fallof2007 and to 40 by April1,2008. This goal18will not be easy, but 1 will campaign for this along with colleagues suchas19Senator Trifunovski andany other colleague who would be willing to tackle20this projectaswell.212) Second, 1 plan to start a councilofVice-Presidents, which would include22Vice-Presidents in organizations and Hall Council Vice-Presidents to promote23unity and allow organizations that would not usually work together, to come24and sponsor events with each other and to foster a more direct link between25Student Association and Hall Councils.263) Third, 1 plan to implement a Senate liaison program, in which each Senator27will be assigned to a random club and will act as a liaison for that club.Itwill28allow Senators to be involved with organizations and allow organizations to29get things done more rapidly and efficiently.304) Fourth, 1 plan to promote Senate in a positive, respectable manner. A few31weeks ago someofour constituents came into this room and demanded action.32Some may not have appreciated or didn't understand what was going on.33Those constituents were partaking in civic engagement; the most prizedofal34the tools in a democracy. They came in good faith, and it will be our duty to35make sure that their needs are met.36As the voiceofthe Senate 1 would like to make it clear that:37Weare offering you leadership in the faceofa dying candle that needs to be relit!38We are offering you leadership in the faceofuncertainty!39Weare offering you leadership in the faceofwanting a more active government!40We are offering you leadership in the faceofgreat opportunity!411 remember what Ralph Nader said during the 2000 presidential elections, when42he said: "I start with the premise that the functionofleadership is to produce more43leaders, not more followers". That is exactly what 1 intend todo!So that in the44years after 1 am gone from this place, leaders all around will come to take charge45and produce more leaders. That is my mission; that is my goal; that is what 1 put46my faith into! Join me in my quest to build a stronger senate, a stronger SA, but47most importantly a stronger student body!7

PAGE 41

1As I conclude, I call on you all to think deeply about the futureofnot only2yourself, not onlyofyour organization or Hall, but this STUDENT3ASSOCIATION as a whole. Ask yourself: what can Idoto make my4organization, my Hall, myself, and my STUDENT ASSOCIATION better. Ask5yourself can I make a difference?Ifyou think so, believe it with the surestof6optimism. JohnF.Kennedy once said: "my call is to the young in heart,7regardlessofage, to all who respond to the Scriptural call: 'be strong andof8courage;benot afraid, neitherbethou dismayed"'. Forcourage-not9complacency-is our need today: leadership not salesmanship. And the only10valid testofleadership is the ability to lead, and lead vigorously.Wemust help11Student Association in a timeofgreat need. This is our test. This is our12challenge and we must acceptit.I must say that for significant change to be made,13wefirst must make progress. RobertF.Kennedy put it best when he said:14"progress is the motivatorofall change, and only with progress can we ever have15change." These words were uttered in 1965 but42years later they are stillsotrue.16I truly believe that change can be on the march. Manyofyoumay accept change17and someofyou may not. But, it is always easier to shrink from change, to look18to the dismal mediocrityofthe past, to be lulled by good intentions and high19rhetoric. Those who would prefer that course should not take part in the vision20for a new atmosphere.21I would like to conclude with a few questions. Are we up to the task? Are we22equal to the challenge thatwenow face? These are the questionsofa new SA23compared to an oldSA.That is the choice that SA must make, a choice that lies24not merely between you and me, but between the public interest and private25comfort, between SA greatness and SA decline; between the fresh airofprogress26and the stale, dank atmosphereof"normalcy"; between determined dedication27and creeping mediocrity. Givemeyour help, you hand, your support. Thank you.2829VP Emeritus. Scott Robinson Vice-President Fields I would like to say first is30congratulations on finally becoming Vice President. I remember when I was Vice31President before you even came you were sending me Facebookmessages about32joining Senate. Another thing is that you mentioned in your address was the33Student liaison. Look at the program because it did exist in the past but it failed.34Look at the involvement committee to see about getting them involved instead.3536Interim DirectorofFinance Dan Tascerella37Here are the numbers in your accounts this week:386502: $7,992.52396506: $2,426.0040Also I would like to reiterate what ChiefofStaff Farnsworth said about refereeing41the budget for one more week.Itissocomplicated that I feel one more week will42ensure that we get a good budget and will not have todoamendmentsasthe year43goes on.44Cooperman could you elaborate more on the reasons why?45Tascarella Not really, there are still some questions we need to answer but we'll46make sure you get those answers47Cooperman What questions will be asked?8

Senator Issues Forum39VP Fields Before we begin Senator Issue's forum I would just like to say that40you all should keep it to senator issues this week.41Adams -I noticed last week that a lotofyields were going on and according to42Roberts Rules this would be under "goodofthe order' and you should only yield43to ask a question. My other issue was that recently Lee Hall is blockedoffand44I'masking ifanyone knows why.45Dr. Scharffenberger we can find out46Trifunovski -Talking at my Hall council someone brought up this idea that there47should be a suggestion boxsothey can put in ideas. Couldwegive a little stipend48to the tech dept or OCTEA to make boxes for us with lock and key and put them9

PAGE 43

1around campus? I think this would be a good idea andifwe had a coupleof2senators once a week bring the suggestions to the table and see what the people3have to say.Itis anonymous so peoplewon'tbe pressured and will be able to say4what they want. I really support this idea and I hope we can look into that and get5some pnces.6Westfall-Itis a good idea butI'mnot sure we need to do it that way. We could7do intercampus mail and it would get it to the same way. Why not just promote8this to the campus as an option9Cooperman Motion to close10Adams second1112VIII.

They meet manyofthe requirements in the financial policyand a lotofstudents coming up saying they belong here on campus should be enough. To give them 0 dollars is I think it would be a good thing for the senate to ask in good faith to have President. Miller tojustnegotiate with NYPIRG. To have civic engagement you have to do more thanjustthis campus and NYPIRG does that. I think we should give them the same consideration. Saying youcan'tafford it but youdon'tknow the cause is unfair. Adams firstifeveryone canturnto the last pageofthe NYPIRG budget appeal, we did not request this I believe they were talking about the budget council. POI to Pres. Emeritus Farrell and ChiefofStaff Farnsworth, as a contracted service the priorities and criteriaoffunding through SA are what the president has to take into consideration when negotiating contracts or how does that pertain to organizations? Where I want to go with this is that yes, we have Priorities and criteria for funding however that is for funding student organizations through the tier process and should fall outsideofthis decision because it is in this section and associated with the budget process for tier organizations. This is what budget council uses for their recommendations and shouldn't' be a partofcontract. Cooperman -I disagree with the third whereas since NYPIRGisa contracted organization that is not student run. I feel that this is misleading and propose an amendment to strike that. Guerrero POI to Senator Adams: Could you please read under contracts or under Tier 3 organizations and is that what he was asking ChiefofStaff Farnsworth or President Emeritus Farrell. Adams Reads from page 10 and page 22, and page23Adams -Itis not under the charter but on page 10. Accordino -I think this is a good idea to have a better viewofwhat can be done between both organizations to see where a fair negotiation can be made to give us a better understandingofthe way things are to see why an organization that has been here for16years is being removed from the budget Bell PointofInformation to senator Green: is the attempt to bring both parties together to talk and not to say that there must be a negotiated contract because it reads almost like they have to get together to negotiate a contract. Green the intent is to just sit and find out what the contract might be about and find out what theorganization is asking for. Youcan'tsimply say Bell To me is seems to read that we the senate is saying that Pres. Miller is getting together to negotiate a contract. Green -I would not object to an amendment to14

The whole nature is to just push something but in this is seems7that it is a really weak resolution. But this is kindoflike maybe you should do this8andifyou are really serious about this maybe you should rip it up and start a new9one.10Pres. Emeritus Farrell POI to the Senate are you still asking me to answer the11question?12Adams Yes I would like your opinion13Pres. EmeritusFarrell-Yes and no, I think generally the student association must14consider certain guidelines when allocating student money butifyou read the15financial policy closely, look at page10,at a read it seems as though these criteria16are referencing don't apply to contracted services. I don'tthinkany good17president should fund services left and right I think they should investigate things.18But personally I think the president is acting at his own discretion when dealing19with contracts and there is no criteria about how to deal with contracted20organizations. On a personal note, oneofmy first tasks was to initiate contracts21with NYPIRG, I contacted them and didn't hear back from them until November22and didn't get a chance to actuallydothe contract with them becauseofit.23Green Clear up a few things, the question is about the current leveloffunding24and wouldn't apply to the referendum question. And I understand thatitis a weak25resolution but this is why I presented it justsoPres. Miller can consider it. Ithink26that you don't have to abide by them but there are guidelines andifan27organization provides educational opportunities to students thatthat is important28and should be funded.

Cooperman insteadofstriking that and changing it to may you could say "without a continued contract, NYPIRG would not exist" and this would be what you are asking for and in lightofthe budget not being passed. Cooperman motion to vote Adams second All those in favor say Aye, all those opposed say noItis the opinionofthe chair that the ayes have it, the motion passes. Adams Yield to ChiefofStaff Tim Farnsworth ChiefofStaff Farnsworth President Miller would like to say that in no way does not signing a contract with NYPIRG mean those forty students can't form an organization.Itjust meansweare not going to give them the $49,000 that they have asked for. The negations that have gone on have yielded no results. That packet you received from NYPIRG, that they gave at Budget council, where they asked them questions and they [NYPIRG] could not answer any specific questions. We have not shut our door to them we have talked we just aren't getting whatwewant and no results Trifunovski Did pres. Miller ever talk to you about what he expects NYPIRG to do? ChiefofStaff Farnsworth You should address that to him Trifunovski PointofInformation to the senate: what do you expect to see from NYPIRG to demonstrate what they do on campus? Our constiuents have been asking this samequestion.I'mvery curious. Green -I think the contract with NYPIRG or the packetand give everyone an idea about what is going on with our budget to give you an ideaofwhat they do.Itis more than voter registration it is environmental issues and consumer advocacy. VP Emeritus Mapes -I don't want to answer that question because I would be misrepresenting the current E-board.VPFields -I think this question is suited for the current President becausethe way the question is formulated it is about howhestands and howhewould negotiate with them. Trifunovski -I don't think this is a question for just Pres. Miller I think this is for any person from perhaps budget councilor other members who are related to this matterabout what they have in mind to what they want to seeVPEmeritus Robinson -wewant to see more than just fliers and more than meetings about how they are goingtojust go to Albany. We have a get out the vote on campus thatwerun and it wouldn't cost usasmuch as NYPIRG to do it. There are a lotofthings that SA could do and setupthings that we pay NYPIRG to do. I've gone through someoftheir budgets and it boggles my mind when I compare them with other clubs.Weshould treat them as any other club. I don't16

We don't give6this choice to other groups who do a lot more than NYPIRG on this campus. I7don't think anyone can answer that question. It is a good question for everyone to8ask though.9Anderson-Ithink those are good and valuable questions to ask when you look atlOabudget but when you see an asset liquidated from one group and moneymovedIIto other organizations you need to ask why. Thisisa valuable question also.12Whatisbeing done with the money from NYPIRG and being given to other13organizations?14Coopennan -I understand your concerns but it does not pertain to the resolution15at hand andissuited for the budget itself16Adams -I concur with Senator Coopennan17VP E Robinson -I concur18Coopennan -Itis my opinion that president miller is going ot make up his mind19regardlessofthis resolution and you need to thinkofwhether or not you are in20supportofPres. Miller to negotiate with NYPIRG. This resolution says it is fair21but it seems to favor more with NYPIRG and is my personal opinion that22NYPIRG has had a chance t display its worth and I'm sure Pres. Miller has made23up his mind in regards to negotiating with NYPIRG. Motion to vote24Adams Second25Resolution is tied266-6-327VPFields -Iama big person on a separationofpowers and I believe that the28resolution while I can understand where they are corning fromitis the Presidents29job to negotiate the contracts and the senates job to approve what is going onsoI30amgoing to cast a no vote31Resolution fails326-7-33334RES 42.08 NYPIRG Consideration35Green This resolution comes straight outofthe budget and hope that an36organization that has been on campus for16years would be given some37consideration. We've had this discussion before and NYPIRG does a lot for this38campus and I hope that a demonstration with all the interns and where wegoand39what wedoand I think that the real fact is that allocating 0 dollars is even40appropriate. Taking the money outofNYPIRG and giving it to different41organization violated viewpoint neutrality by saying that one organization can do42it better. NYPIRG is worth more than nothing. NYPIRG does things that civic43engagement just can't or won't do. It is more than a contractual organization.44Coopennan -I would like to say that I thinknoone can say what civic45engagementwill or won't do because it has not been put into place yet. In regard46 to the bill itself, NYPIRG does not have Tier status and is not an organization and47I feel this resolution is irrelevant17

PAGE 51

1Adams -I want to say three things. First, with this going tobudget council and2appealing for Tier 3 status it was outoforder because it is a contracted service.3Centro cannot come to budget council merely because they have a student driving4the bus and claim that it is a student service5Guerrero the civic engagement is a position and would fall under President6Miller and we can't predict what would happen in the future7Trifunovski -I want to say that this specialelection, though non-binding, that this8election has not taking place and we don't know what the students want. We9can'tassume what the student body wants. By making decisions that are so10important we should know what they want before we decide anything since they11are the ones that pay. We should be hearing what students want and this is their12campus. I believe students want their opinions voiced and whether it is non-13binding or not, we should show that democracy is here in America where people14vote and we know what they want. Why not find out what they want before we15decideofwhether or not to have a contract or not.16Westfall -I concur with Cooperman and staying strictly on this resolution that17NYPIRG is not a Tier 3 organization and has a budget allocated to them as partof18this process and feel this resolution should fail19Marra -I yield to ChiefofStaff Farnsworth20ChiefofStaff Farnsworth President Miller did run on a campaign that he was21looking for an alternative to NYPIRG and that was a platform and a student voice22that those who voted forhimbelieved. This wasn't hidden from the student body23and he stated this at several debates and several interviews24Bell -I agree with Senator Trifunovski with the representation issue but to vote25reasonably, people need to know the issues on both sides and Idon'tthink either26side knows really what either side is saying clearly so it is too bad that there is not27a debate between SA and NYPIRG in order to determine what they are looking to28do with those dollars.Ifthey are not going to NYPIRG and NYPIRG certainly29needs to explain to students what they are doing with the money.30Green -I want to tell the Senate that the real reason we presented this is to listen31to studentopinions andifyou are waiting for the referendum, that this does play32into this and without allocating any money to NYPIRG you are saying you don't33care about that. Once the budget is passed you are cutting the entire tool by34saying that. You have constituents in your own dorms and not even 1/10ofthe35student population voted President Miller into office. AllI'masking is to give36NYPIRG a fair chance.37Cooperman -I would like to state that for hall senators at least we shouldknow38what our constituents want and talking to our constiuents. I know I talk to39students about the budget and how I should vote as a representativeofthem.

ADDRESSTOSENATEVice President Andre D. Fields 4-10-2007Good evening Senators, Membersofthe Executive Branch, students, guests. I would first like to say that itisan honor to now lead the body from whence I came. I have learned a lot from manyofyou in ways that you may not even know. Upon taking the oathofoffice on April1,2007, I made a pledge to preserve, protect and defend the constitutionofthe Student Association. I take that very seriously and hope all my colleaguesinthis roomdoaswell, from President's to Senators to Justicesofthe court. Both you and I have a responsibilityaselected officials to answer questions to mobilize and take action so that the interests and needsofour electorate are met! A lotoftimes, we get so caught upindoing things inSAthat we forget who we are really here to serve! We must always remember how we got here; who we are responsible to; and for whom we work! My goalasyour Vice Presidentisto never forget how I got there, to whom Iamresponsible and most importantly, for whom I workfor!I have laid out a 4-point plan:1.First, we must increase involvement within our Student Association Senate. TheSAConstitution states that the maximum amountofseats we may haveissixty-six (66) and the minimumisthirty-three (33). Right now we have 19-student Senators, with two faculty representatives. My goal is to increase that number to at least33by the fallof2007 and to40by April1,2008. This goal will not be easy, but I will campaign for this, along with colleagues suchasSenator Trif andany other colleague who would be willing to tackle this projectaswell.2.Secondly, I plan to start a councilofVice Presidents, which would include Vice Presidentsinorganizations and Hall Council Vice Presidents to promote unity and allow organizations that would not usually work together, to come and sponsor events with each other and to foster a more direct link between Student Association and Hall Councils.3.Thirdly, I plan to implement a Senate Liaison program,inwhich each Senator will be assigned to a random club and will actasa liaison for that

PAGE 54

club.Itwill allow Senators to be involved with organizations and allow organizations to get things done more rapidly and efficiently. 4. Fourth, I plan to promote Senate in a positive, respectable manner. A few weeks ago, someofour constituents came into this room and demanded action. Some may not have appreciated that or didn't understand what was going on. Those constituents were partakingin civic engagement, the most prizedofall the toolsofa democracy. They came in good faith, and it will be our duty to make sure that their needs are met. Asthe voiceofthe Senate I would like to make it clear that: We are offering you leadership in the faceofa dying candle that needs to be re-lit! We are offering you leadership in the faceofuncertainty! We are offering you leadership in the faceofwanting a more active government! We are offering you leadership in the faceofgreat opportunity! I remember what Ralph Nader said during the 2000 presidential elections, when he said "I start with the premise that the functionofleadership is to produce more leaders, not more followers." That is exactly what I intend to do! So that in the years after I am gone from this place,leaders all around will continue to take charge and produce more leaders. Thatismymission that is my goal that is what I put my faith into! Join me inmyquest to build a stronger senate, a stronger SA, but most importantly a stronger Student Body! As I conclude, I call on you all to think deeply about the futureofnot only yourself, not onlyofyour organization, or Hall, but this STUDENT ASSOCIATION as a whole. Ask yourself, what I candoto make my organization, my Hall, myself, and my STUDENT ASSOCIATION better. Ask yourself can I make adifference.Ifyou think so, believe it with the surestofoptimism. JohnF.Kennedy once said "my call is to the young in heart, regardlessofage, to all who respond to the Scriptural call: "Be strong andofa good courage; be not afraid, neither be thou dismayed." For courage--not complacency--is our need today--Ieadership--not salesmanship. And the only valid testofleadershipisthe ability to lead, and lead vigorously. We must help Student Association in a timeofgreat need. Thisisour test. This is our challenge. We must accept it. I must say that for significant change to be made, we first must make progress.

PAGE 55

RobertF.Kennedy put it best when he said, "progressisthe motivatorofall change, and only with progress can we ever have change." These words were utteredin1965but 42 years later they are stillsotrue. I truly believe that change can be on the march. Manyofyou may accept change and some may not. But, itisalways easier to shrink from change, to look to the dismal mediocrityofthe past, tobelulledbygood intentions and highrhetoric, and those who would prefer that course should not take partinthe vision for a new atmosphere. I would like to conclude with afewquestions. Are we up to the task? Are we equal to the challenge that we now face? These are the questionsofa newSAcompared to an oldSA.That is the choice thatSAmust make, a choice that lies not merely between you andme,but between the public interest and private comfort, betweenSAgreatness andSAdecline, between the fresh airofprogress and the stale, dank atmosphereof"normalcy", between determined dedication and creeping mediocrity. Give me your help, your hand, your support. Thank you

Cooperman Motion to approve Oakman Second V. ExecutiveReportSA President, Joshua Miller Good evening everyone it is nice to see you here. There is a lot to talk about but I willtryto be brief. I just wanted to start with mentioning the events that occurred down at Virginia Tech. I feel it would be wrong to act like nothing happened. I want to send my personal condolences to those murders and their families and take a moment to think about that. I put my full support behind the resolution tonight. My chiefofstaff and I have prepared a report about NYPIRG and the funding and I hope that will clear up any issues for you here and the Senate. The gistofitisthat NYPIRG hasn't proven to SA and the executive branch that all the money being paid to NYPIRGisn'tbeing spent on this campus. According to the SUNY BoardofTrustees Policy, all that money should be on this campus. To examine their financial records, it has been difficult as you will see in the packet that it has been hard to get a break downofthe various costs that make up the

PAGE 58

149,000. Upon getting this we have asked for a further breakdown to see what the money2is being spentonwhich we have requested.Asyou will seeinthe packet there is a3further breakdown andweasked lookatthe programs and were wondering what that4actually goes to such as a stipend, bringing a person to campus for printing.Wedidn't5actually see that. To build a budget it is hard6 7Road blocks and detours isanissue that has beenputin place.WhenPresident8Tascerella asked to see the books they told us to come toNewYork City toviewtheir9 fInancial records that could have been faxedorsent to show us.Wefelt that this was10unfair. Lackoftransparency. This goes to not seeing whereourmoney is going. Again,11go to page 3.Yousee where the money is spentbutwedon'tactually see what the12money is being spent on. Lackofresults. This was a comment we wanted to make13because we feel for 49,000 we feel there should be more goingononthis campus for1449,000.Atstudent assembly I had a chance to expressmyconcerns aboutNYPIRGand15each campus had a different result. What makesourNYPIRG different from other16NYPIRGs then? SUNY-Albany said they got a lotofprograms for the money they spent.17And we explained to them what we hadonourcampus, with smaller individuals and18smaller groups. Is the money being spentonthis campusoris it being spentatAlbany?19You'regoing to askhowwe came up with the $8,900. What we did was take the20program accountonpage 3 and we added those up and putinthe food and beverage line21onpage2.This ishowwe got this number and we asked for a bigger breakdown and22this is all we received. Again, it is hard to determine what the money is being spenton23with no transparency. I have asked the senate to fund the civic engagement to spend24$8,000 because I feel that is in line with what we have spentonNYPIRG. More funds to25SAclubs and organizations. The current fIscal year NYPIRG received more money than26any organization and club. In past years, SA organizations have seen cutsintheir27budgets and scrutiny in their funds. Thisdoesn'thappen to NYPIRG.Ifanorganization28Equal and fair playing fIeld. In the currentbudgetwe'reproposing to next yearwehave29upped their budgets.Bythat I mean mostofthem. They came to budget council and30explained what they needed and showed us what they wanted and what the money was31being spent on. For that, I think we should reward people who followourprocedures and32rules. Tier process for NYPIRG. They are recognized organizationbySOSbutthey are33notanSAtier group.Ifthey were they would have more accountability from SA.By34increasing the transparency, we could allocate money to them more effIciently and easily35As I said before, this putsNYPIRGonthe same playing fIelds as other organizations.36What are our options for the future? I have a plan, I plan to havemyDirectorofstudent37affairs and civic engagement to form more political clubs. We have clubsonthis campus38who do not knowhowto start a clubor fIll out a constitution. This will be a grass roots39effort.40I plan to havemycivic engagement director to promote411) Environmental issues forum422) Tenant rights forum433) Political issues forum a get out the vote campaign44I already spoke to Dean Scharffenberger to get people to register to vote45I wantmydirectorofcivic engagement to work with the housing and registers office46Thisis where lobbying starts,ifwedon't'have people votingorrepresenting us in a pole,47then there is no point in sending people to Albany because theywon'thave any2

1accountability. I willnowturn it over to Tim to talk about some other areas he has2looked at to expand3COS Farnsworth Oneofthe things that was brought up was that these colleges that4have money toward lobbying groups: could that money be better used at Student5assembly where 64 campuses are represented. There is direct representation on their6board. Is there another way to get our voices heard as a whole? Student assembly is7designed for that to go and talk about the issues. Another group we looked up was the US8student association. This would get out national issues known and this would take some9research10Pres. Miller they have packages that we can pay and they will teach ushowto organize11particular campaigns and show us how to do the research. This is federal and statewide12COS Farnsworth there is also American Reform in Democracy, we can setup a chapter13ofthatonthis campus. They will put us in touch with speakers and it will also cut out the14cost. Working with student association to get students to Albany, we could go with the15Provost and go to Albany.Byworking with the administration and the political science16department and being ACTIVE with those groups we could get to Albany and be as17effective as NYPIRG18Pres. Miller -justbecause we wouldn't bring NYPIRG back as a contracted service19doesn't mean studentscan'tform a NYPIRG on this campus.20Workshops for lobbying on student rights and government. We went to a numberof21eventsonthese issues and they would talk about what we could doonthis campus.It22was a really well run program and there was a lotofinformation there.23Onyour last page this is the SUNY assembly budget. It is state funded and is not funded24through the SAs. They get 68,000 and you can see they have a lotofmoney put towards25the conferences. Whatifcampuses started to put more money toward them and organize26a joint effort?27COS Farnsworth -a student assembly like theUNwhere they get together anddon'tget28a lot done. There are other things out there where we can go and getourvoices heardin29Albany30Pres. Miller -I think this concludes the issues with NYPIRG and whywewant to get rid31ofthem. The gist is wehaven'tseen any accountability andifthey want to be here next32year, they can become a Tier organization. Moving into the restofmyagenda, the33campus center committee. All organizations where given a packet in their mailboxes and34it wasanoverall questionnaire that invited all organizations to a meeting. We got to see a35proposal for furniture and office space.3637[Shows a Breakdownofthe Campus Center Space on the Elmo]38 39Pres. Miller In the south there is room for 14 student organization services40The cluster space that we came up with at our last meeting was that 47ofthese spaces41would be given and42A little lessthanten would be for ordinary use and could be used by those getting started43It is open and there is no closed door.Ithas some locked filling cabinets and movable44desks and cabinets that can be rolled out and used for a meeting. This means you could45go and move it and have a great meeting with your organization. There will be more46technologyinthese spaces. The idea is that having these informal spaces, when someone47comes into the student organization area, they will look around and see a white board and48contact them and interact as well as other organizations with dedicated space.3

PAGE 60

1Type A room is a room with a closed door,14ofthese2Type B is a space dedicated to organizations for a year.3Type C are the final type and these are the spaces that are open to everyone.4When they fill out an application they will be asked what kindofspace they need and5why they need it.I'llbring a copyofthe questionnaire next week and currently all6organizations need to file for space in the beginningofthe year so this will be nothing7new for them. This committee also decidedonthe groupofstudents who will sitonthe8board to decide this space. Nadia and Tim were chosen to separate the rooms and to9decide what space they would need basedontheir needs. Dr. Hughes and Barbara St.10Michel and Kathy Santos will sitonthat board as well. I do have two appointments11today I would like to appoint Dan Heyman as theChiefJusticeofthe Supreme Court.12We would like to use this opportunity to let him13AJHeyman -I'mcurrently an Associate justice and I have some big plans to modify the14Court. To start, the whole constitutional procedure. I want to make it so that it is easier15for clubs to know when their constitution is approved. I also want to make it so all our16documents are online. I want to streamline the court and make it as easy for people to17file things online so you're not constricted to our office hours. This was a problem for18both our cases this semester. I also want to make it so the court is more visible so19students will know where and when a procedure will take place. We could use the SA20calendar. I want to make it so the court is a respected entityonthis campus andI'mthe21right person for this.22Pres. Miller -I have had a few meetings with Dan about what we want the Court to come23and I think he is a strong individual for the court and he is the right person for this job.24VP Fields Dan Heyman will be referred for one week to policy committee for one week.25The way it works is that he goes to policy for one week and they basically grill him and26ask him questions and they make their recommendations then the senate gets to ask27questions next week and then he gets the upordown vote.28Pres. Miller my second appointment is Chris Hill and is my appointee for Directorof29FinanceofSA. Chris has been oneofmy assistants for this year and he has done an30excellentjobas Assistant DirectorofFinance. He is a go-getter and he really works hard31to get through things. He has familiarized himself with all the documents and procedures32to do that. This is important for a DOF since they will deal with clubs and organizations33ona regular basis. He can remain firm in his stance which is also important for a DOF.34Also, he is able to get things inontime. He has a wonderful GP A and is a smart kid.35Hill-When I was first assistant DirectorofFinance, oneofthe things Josh assigned to36me was the inventory and this was something neither Josh nor I was sure what this37entailed but I went out and found out and did it. Also I did the budget council soI'm38familiar with how the budget works and how it is allocatedoncampus. I also did39treasurer training and this is a big partofthe SA process to be able to train treasurers for40groups. Just being in the office I was able to watch Josh and see what it takes and how41SA works.It has been a great experience4243Pres. Miller He is also being inducted into Beta Alpha Psi and this is really good and44really important since you need someone who is really good with accounting. Ithink45Chris is our best appointee for this position and the best to takethe reins for this position.46He is also good about communicating things and I think him and I will work474

1VP Fields -Mr.Hill is going to finance for one weeks; same process asMr.Heyman.2He'llcome to the floor next week, up and down vote, pretty simple.3Pres. Miller Justtoelaborateonthe other directors positions, I have a lotofprospects4andI'minterviewing already. We have quite a pool for justices, I think sixorseven and5this is great because it allows us to pick from a bigger pool to get the best candidates.6Also, we had lunch with President Stanley and we discussed and talked about someofthe7things we wanttosee for the futureofSA. We spoke about moving to thenewcampus8center and the obstacles that come wit that. We spoke about the space and storage and 9we requested that space be allocated in Hewitt and I think that will be helpful so that the10new campus center simply does not become a closet for groups. I will be in my office11this week to go over my12A few people from SA sitonthe Auxiliary Services Board andI'mwaiting for an email13from Mike Flarrety about opening on that board. I received their budget request from14Auxiliary Services andjustto elaborate on that we found that Auxiliary Services plansto15keep the sweet shop open in Hewitt and this was troublingtome since we are not allowed16to keep our shops open, like the comer shop, and I want this discussed next week because17I think this is unfair. We should beallowed0keep our store open for students to buy18products theycan'tget anywhere else on campus. Tonight we will discuss the budget19and where money will be allocated and I look forward to passing that tonight. My office20is always open.21Cooperman My first question is in regards to the campus center committee, you talked22about the survey andhowthe space is going to be allocated that way.Howdo23organizations feel because I have heard from a lot them that they do not wantjusta24cubicle and they feel25Pres. Miller -I have seen it and a lotofthe other organizations, I would say % seem26optimistic about the space but there are some organizations that are upset and they have27expressed that in the committee.28Cooperman You said Albany was happy withNYPIRG on their campus, how much do29they pay for NYPIRG on campus?30Pres. Miller, Idon'twant to say they were all happy it was more like 50-50.3132Bronson -I believe from Albany it was in the 5 dollar way33COS Farnsworth so about 100,000 but it is a larger campus34Cooperman PO fact to Tim duch35Duch -Idon'thave the exact number but it is well above what we get here36Pres. Miller -0 there was still mixed emotions about what happens with NYPIRgon37Albany and when we talked about the lackoftransparency they responded very shocked38that we reallydidn'tget39COS Farnsworth Specifically Stony Brook, Albany andNewPaltz said the same thing40and they said theydon'thave the same relationship and we need to do what is best for our41campus.42Pres. Miller Thisisn'tjusta controversial issue here, this is a SUNY wide issuebutIjut43think out situation is unique and we need to say enough-is-enough and see where our44money is being spent.45Bronson We spokeofan email list from SA about a campus wide email and did this46topic come up with your lunch?47Pres. Miller No it did not but I will be sure to look into it again. We could ask all our48organizations to do a mass email list5

1Buchner With the cubicle situation how are you going to deal with other students like2"you stolemystapler" like how are you going to keep trackofthings andhoware you3going to be sure that people will notjustwheel them away?4Pres. Miller not everything is movable and they are lockable and you can lock them5into place.6Buchner when is your next meeting with Debra Stanley?7Pres. Miller -I think next month before graduation8Buchner -Ijustwanted to knowifyou're going to discuss the thing I brought up before9Pres. Miller For allofyou whodon'tknow, she was workingonanewmascot as part10ofa project with former President Tascerella and she was workingondesigns for a11prospective mascot to buy a new mascot. She has some really cool sketches thatI'msure12she'll show you during senator issues forum13Adams When you talk about the 14 closed office spaces does that take into account the14administrative needsofSA?15Pres. Miller there are more offices for campus life and the rest are open to SA16organizations. The 14 is for students and the E-board has to apply to themjustlike17anyone else and give good reason for that space.18Green Oneofthe problems I had is the implementationofpersonal views in regard to19funding. Are there any steps you're taking to make sure that the new DirectorofFinance20is not going to break the law in funding one group over another?21Pres. Miller -I believe there were no view-point neutrality violations this year and I think22Chris Hill, who has a very neutral and level head, can do that. We also have the criteria23and priorities in the financial policy to determine who gets what when allocating funds.24Hubert -I do know the percentage break down was80/2025Pres. Miller -I mentioned the individuals I spoke with and their opinions were 50-5026VP Fields we will not have cross debate and I want order in this meeting.27Trifunovksi Can you tell me what is happening with the moving, what is happening28with the LEAD center?29Pres. Miller Yes, they are reserving a space for the lead center and they will be30applying for office spacejustlike all other SA organizations.31Trifunovksi so SA decides this then?32Pres. Miller we are lucky to have three SA individuals to sitonthe committee to decide33this so I think it will be fair34Trifunovksi is there any conflict with this?35Pres. Miller nope because all the organizations that were at the meeting have been with36us for the entire time. There was a vote that the committee had and a numberof37individuals were up for a vote and the ones who areonthe committee were the ones that38were voted inbytheir peers.39Trifunovski so itjusthappens to be people from SA?40Pres. Miller yes the meeting lasted for 3 hours and we had close to 20 organizations that41showed up and I think only25organizations have office spaceinHewittandsome that42don'tthere.43Bleiberg -I heard there was a space for Greek organizations, is that true?44Pres. Miller Greeksorgs apply for spacejustlike all other organizations.Anyone45approved to be on campus can apply for space46Cooperman You were talking about the SA executive board applying to space,how47much space would be given to SA6

1Pres. Miller -mygoal is to get an office for President, vice-president, Directorof2Finance and SAPB. That is what we are applying for.3Herbert How many piecesoflegislation have the student assembly passed?4Pres. Miller -Idon'tknowoffthe topofmyhead.5Kelland currently there are crest hanging in the food court for Greek organizations,6what is happening with those?7Pres. Miller they aren't being movedifthey want them they can address it in Greek8council9 10SA Vice-President, Andre Fields11Over the weekend we went to SUNY Student Assembly and Iwasn'ttoo foundofit.12They were basically business meetings which were poorly ran. Therewasn'tmuch real13discussion goingonin there. I would go back though but I hope they would get better.14They have the potential to be a better group. I did meet some nice people though from15other campuses. Thank you to Senators Trifunovksi, Gurerro and Bronson; President16Miller andMr.Farnsworth for going. We need to fill the open seatonelections17committee still and I hope you all thought about that. We need a CCRC representative18and I would encourage all senators to attend the ASO dinneronSaturday. Tickets are19$10. I would also like to extend a welcome to the Great Lake Review for coming today20so give them a roundofapplause. SA V AC is having their 35threunion at the American21Foundry. I will pass around a list to RSVP, former Vice-President Mapes was suppose to22do this and I got an email from oneoftheir reps about thisifyou want to attend. The23most important thing I want to say tonight is that it is going to be a pretty challenging24meeting so I will say it now: I want there to be absolute order in the meeting and I want25everyone to remain respectful.Ifyou are referring to someone you will address themby26their titleLe.SenatororPresident or Vice-President. This will give the Senate a more27professional outlook. I want to reiteratemycondolences to the Virginia tech massacre28yesterday. We wrote up a resolution that we will be sending to Virginia tech.29Bronson PointofInformation to Tim Duch: what is your official title?30Duch -I am the NYPIRG Project coordinator31Trifunovski Will this be in a different formoras it is now?32VP Fields it will be in form as it is now.33Westfall-Will there be any charge for the SAVAC thing34VPFields No3536Interim DirectorofFinance, Dan Tascerella3738VI.SenatorIssuesForum39Green Pointofinformation to the Elections committee chair: I have had some issues40with how therefwas dealt with and the rules being changed. We found out last night we41could campaign today and the online email was suppose to go out but Ididn'tget an42email, and I believe that we didn't have polling stations because we were assured we43would have an email.44Trifunovski this is the first I have heardofit butifyou do have a problem I havetalked45to the department about having other links available to bring you to the place to vote. So46we didtryto address that problem. You are literally the first person I have heardofwho47didn't get an email. As far as rules and stuff like that thishasbeen a difficult election48week so a lotofthe laws that apply toitin our election law are not compatiblejustfor7

1questions sinceitgoes tojustcandidates. So oneofthe biggest rules is any aspect not2talked about will be addressed in elections committee. So when we came together as a3committee,wemade these decisions that campaigning wouldbeallowed because it was4not an election.Weare dealing with these the best we can, as soon as we can.5Green would itbepossible to put up posters with the link?6Trifunovski this would be for involvement committee7Green -howmuchhasit cost for this special election because I was told it was $800 at8our injunction hearing9Trifunovski -wehad it lowered down to $400 so that is the cost to do the special election.10Oakman -I guess we will be doing flyers and posters madeupatthe last minute.11Trifunovski I have sent out messages to the facebook groups but I have not joined12eitherofthe proorcon groups but I didputone outonthe get involved site to get more13people involved and to let them know.14VP Fields -I would encourage senators to go back to their halls tonight and infOIm them15ofthe election so they know that is going on. This will be a way to save involvement16from doing posters.17Green -I yieldmytime to President Miller18Pres. Miller arewespreading the link to get them to vote?19VP Fields -I wasjustsaying we should get people to vote.20CoopeIman -I was askedbySenator Trifunovski to clarify the point she was trying to21make. While the email did not function as perfectly aswehave liked, youcango through22the Oswego.edu website clickoncurrent events to get to the link to go there. Other than23that I would like to say that the link,ifinvolvement could write the exactURLaddresson24the fliers tonight that would be helpful.25Pres.

So check thereoryour spam box.27Bronson -I yieldmytime to NYPIRG Project Coordinator TimDuch28Duchthe URL address I got is printedonallourfliers29Bronson -I would like to issue a public apology for missing senate last week andif30you'rein centralNewJersey avoid the chicken wings.31Oakman PointofinfoImation to Tim Duch: what URL site areyoutalking about that is32onyour fliers33DuchtheSAvote one, it is the actual page to voteon3435[Senator Accordino presents a NYPIRG flier with the address]3637Accordino to elections committee, I actually knowofa coupleofpeople who did not38get the link to vote.39Guerrero -I went to assembly this weekend and I went to those workshops andI'mgoing40to type up the notes I took and give them to Vice-President Fields and President Miller so41you can see what we did down there. They had some good speakers and I talked to Vice-42President Fields and President Miller about having someofthem up here.43Trifunovski -I have made packetsofinfoonthe rules for posting from the Election law44and from the student handbook and gave it to both groups campaigning and posting.You45can come tomeandI'llgive it to you. I would like to yieldmytime to President Miller46regarding safety procedures.47Pres. Miller -I went to a meeting with college administration and we discussed the48student reaction to that and our emergency preparedness for that. Have you heard fOIm 8

PAGE 65

1your constituents about anyofthis or any concerns they have so we can bring them back2to the administrators.3VP Fields -I would like to recognize Chief Justice Patterson,4Former Cj. Patterson do we have a lock down procedures?5Pres. Miller we do for certain buildings butwediscussed is this the best procedure for6our campus. Andifstudents are trying to get to a safe area anddon'thave their key or id7cardhowdo they get in? Wejustwanted to figure out what we could doifthis happens8onour campus. Campus police would be our first responders. They would go to the9sceneofthe crime and they would secure the scene and make sure no evidence is being10removed. There isanemergency squad and they practice each month. There are two11officers locally on this team and another who comes inifneeded. Also, local and state12police will be awareofanything and calledifneed be. WE discussed training building13managers and maybe professors abouthowto deal with this typeofsituation. One thing I14brought up was while we have contingency plans in the learning and living halls, what15about the dinner halls. WhenChiefAdams spokeatthe meeting, she seemed very16confident that we would be prepared for that.17Trifunovski -I yield18Kelland this is something that was already planned to be discussedbyHealth and safety19at our next meeting so Pointofinformation to Pres. Miller: do you have any notes that20would be available for this meeting?21Pres Miller Yes22Buchner [Presentshersketchesforthe new mascot on the ELMO]23The name we have come up with is not permanent is Ozzy the Laker. President Miller24and I have talked and I was told that President Stanley did not want a fishbutshehasn't25seen the sketches yet. The problem with the second one is that every other campus has it.26Pres Miller -Idon'tknowifwe would want a fish becauseifwe play Plattsburgh we27would have fish thrown on the ice.I'mnot in favorofthe fish I think the sailor is cool28looking but we have to think about male and female sports teams.29Buchner The reasonwe'regoing with this organization is becauseofwhat this30company is capable of. They do numerous characters for corporations and the designs31are limitless. Since I wasonthe E-board, we did do the design a laker competition and32not many people did it and some that did plagiarized.33Oakman Would there be a drawing for a female sailor?Itis very masculine.34Buchner the price range is between 3 and 7 thousand dollars each35Pres. Miller -I think we shouldjustchoose a design that is both male and female soan36animal.37Buchner Senator Kelland, Adams and I were talking that the top one may condone38smoking so we were thinking to put bubbles in his pipe which I think would be cool to do.39Herbert -I was curious about the belt thing you know the four boltsonhis pants.40Buchner those are uniform sailor pants. I will send Vice-President fields these pictures41to send to your constiuents.42Adams -Ijustwant to bring back something about the fencing around Lee hall and I43guess they are redoing the boilers in Lee hall and to make room they have to remove44partsofthe wall so youdon'tget hit with a brick while walking by. It will be like that for45the restofthe summer.46Bleiberg the sidewalks across from Johnson hall are so uneven that when it rains they47flood and it is impossible to get around. The only way around it is to walkinthe road or48to literally walk through a muddy field9

1Scharffenberger you should ask Health and safety to check it out.2Green can I approach the podiumtogo over thisrefand the presidential report thing. I3would liketoknow I have issues withjustabout everything to do with NYPIRg andI'm4excited that the presidenthastaken a stanceonthis issue and I glad that he is using SA5money to advertise this and thatifhe wants to kick an organizationoffthis campus that6has been here for 16 years is great. So I decided to do some researchonthis and I wanted7to present it to you tonight. The contract and the budget report that budget council asked8for including the breakdown NYPIRG provided.Ithas all the professional services9breakdown. The next thing that came down was the audit and that was no problem so10they got it another break down11Pres. Miller the auditthat was given was two years ago and the contract says the current12fiscal year.13Green -Idon'tknow much about audits but I asked the regional supervisor and they said14that was the most currentonfile.I'mnot going to support a budget that is not going to15give money to NYPIRG. SA has asked for all these things and NYPIRG has complied up16to this point. So lets decide whetherornot we go through books. This is something that17is going to take a while. Lets wait to see what the students say, then sit down and then18find out what the19Pres. Miller You know we have been asking all year for this information why does it20take up until we will not sign a contract that they will provide this information. This has21come along way now and we have not seen the accountability for the past18years.22Shouldn't we see this accountability from an organization now? Shouldn't we expect23more from an organization that is receiving SA money?Where should the money be24spent,I'lltell youonthis campus.25Green -Idon'tthink anyone has ever been ready to sign a contract with NYPIRG. I26think we went through the breakdowns then an audit Then I think we need to look at27whatwent into these decisions and Ithinkthe personal viewsoffinance committee28against NYPIRG were brought in. Why is one organization getting zero dollars and29we'llspend some moneyonanother. A coupleofweeks ago we went to Albany and30went with 27 students to do this. You clearly have to have people who know how to do31this and have done this before. NYPIRG has helped students over the past 30 years32Don'twe owe it to the studentsofthis campustodo something for themoffthis campus.33778 new students registered to vote this year and you have to have an economyofscale34inNewYork State to take this into consideration. Idon'tknow how civic engagement is35going to do this. NYPIRG has peopleonstaff who can speak for the students and also36teaches them to speak for themselves.Italso teaches them how to do things in Albany37when you are up against theNewYork State government.You'renot going to see that38onthis campus unless we work with other campuses and unify our voice. I do want to39give NYPIRG my 4 dollars and I hope you do.40Pres. Miller the break downofthe $49,000 there is a supplies and equipment $1,200,41general office supplies computer and computer related supplies, do you know what this42money was spentonspecifically?43Green yes44Pres. Miller -I want to point out that they are onlyon21campuses and since there are 6445SUNY campuses so clearly theydon'trepresent all the voicesofSUNY. So why should46Oswego bare this cost. Wedon'tknow what would happen to the things I have proposed47but you know what, letstrylets see what will happen andtrysomethingnewand see48what will happen.Ifwedon'tknowwe'lljustbe back andwe'llbe doing the same thing10

PAGE 67

1we'redoing now. You sayit was NYPIRG that passed these laws, when it was really2other lobbyists helping with this anditwasn'tjustSUNY students anditis not all about3having moneyitis about being organized.4Adams First, Idon'tseehow ftnance committeeorany other committee can be biased5since we are here to represent our constituents.Ifwe choose to support other causes6outside this senate is irrelevant.7Gurerro It is our right as our consumers to ask for evidence evenifitis difficult to ftnd 8it and to inform our constituents where are money is going. Soitis their right and it is9NYPIRGsjobto give us this information.10Cooperman Pointofinformation to Senator Green:don'tyouthinkany organization11hiredorfunded bySAshould be held accountable forSAwhile they are involved with12SA?13Green obviously yeah, but they did provide the breakdowns and they did cooperate so I14think that the intent was to not sign a contract15Kelland Pointofinformation to Senator Green:Onwhat basis are you making this16decision that no one had the intention that no one had any intention?17Green -I guess I did say thatonthe accumulationofthings that have happened like18voiding the ref. like asking for these things and asking for morewhengiven.19Kelland Pointofinformation to Former President Tascerella : what was your main20reason for voiding theref21Pres. Emeritus Tascerlla that it violated view point neutrality. Since I have workedon22contract negotiations with NYPIRG is that they will not useorPO system is that because23theycan'tshow where the money goes because it is pooled together withother schools so24we cannot see where our money is directly going. Ithinkthat is a big problem with us25because theycan'tshow us where the 49,000 is being spent. Partoftheir bylaws is that26they like the way they haveitset up so theydon'thave to use ourPOsystem and rather27do a contract that does not show where the 49,000 is going.28Trifunovski -Ididn'tmention this earlier and I would like to recognize two and ahalf29that this organization deserves a lotofcredit and does a lotofthingsoncampus and30would like to recognize this group. Idon'texpectanorganization to be this active as they31are but I hope other organizations look to them asanexample.32Oakman Pointofinformation to President Emeritus Tascerella and President Miller: to33avoid misconception isitjusthow much NYPIRG receives that you guys are not signing34a contract becauseisn'tit possible tojustlower the costofhowmuch NYPIRG is funded35to keep NYPIRG and give them their $8,900oris it you want to get ridofthem36altogether?37Pres. Miller -IthinkI have been vocal that I want studentsoncampus who want to keep38NYPIRG on campus to form a Tier 1 organization and apply for funding like all other39Tier organizations. And I would hope they would consider thatanoption.Itwill teach40themhowto work with our tier processing system and it keeps them accountable.Ifthey41start now, they could apply for Tier 3 status next year and get more money. There42shouldn't be any special funding andany special services.43Oakman Some constituents might be confused so is signing a contract with NYPIRG is44for $49,00045Pres Miller -I said I wouldifit was materially different such as signiftcantly monetary46different and that they would follow our purchase order system. Currently the contract47we have with NYPIRG does not represent the best viewsofour students.11

1Cooperman Could senator Green help to clarify some things and I think he was talking2about he referendum being voided and I think he meant the petitions andwhenhesaid3that no oneonthis campus would sign a contract he meant Pres. Miller.4Bronson -I would like to take this to receiveanoffer to be a director with SUNY student5assembly to write press releases to be sent out to the various media sourcesontheSUNY6campuses and I will still be fulfillingmyduties as senatoronthis campus.7Herbert -I would like to address the plan that President Miller has suggested. First and8foremost, as a semi-professional that works in Albany I would like tojustsay that this is9not possible. Youcan'tsend people tojustlobby in Albany .Youneed to establish10yourself. Training startsonthese campuses with people like Tim Duch.Youcannot do11the things NYPIRG does by simply joining Student assembly. I have never seen any12pieceofhigher education legislation with their nameonanything. IknowNYPIRGhas13passed over 150 piecesoflegislation.14Pres. Miller -I think that is a defeatist mentality that we should take some opportunities15to try. Idon'tknowifthey haven't. Are you addressing the senate as a representativeor16NYPIRGoras a Proxy for a senator?17Herbert -I spoke to the person I was proxying for so that I could use my professional18expertise to address these typeofquestions19Cooperman -inresponse for that, I would ask that you act like a proxy for a senator and20not as a professionalinthat sense.21Bronson Pointofinformation to Proxy Herbert: the SUNY student assembly elects a22president who sitsonthe SUNY boardoftrustees so I can assure you thatwhena pieceof23legislation passes the boardoftrustees that there is a student who sitsonthat committee.24Pres. Emeritus Tascerella as you all know I signed a contract with NYPIRg and we sat25and we listened to what they had to say.26Cooperman Motion to close27Oakman Second2829VIII.

These are40all related to student services.41Pres. Miller these amendmentsjustreflect the ongoing discussionwe'vebeen having is42that we're going to keep the copy center still on campus and SA run and I think it would43be better to keep that available to students and organizations.44Adams this isjustto clean it up and get it outofhere45Cooperman would anyone object to vote on the executive student amendments as a46whole?47VP Fields -I was going to present it like that.13

I would like to direct this to33President Miller34Miller we perceive that becauseofthe new campus center that since it is shared space35that the college will takeonthe cost to pay for the phones so we36Adams motion to pass by general consent37Westfall-are we even talking about all the telephone ones? Becauseifwe are lets do38them one at a time39Adams -I'llput the amendment up for you to see40Cooperman so whatwe'relooking at isjusttelephone changes?Ifthat is the case I41wouldn't object42Westfall on line item 3005, it looks like community service it looks like it is being43reduced butifyou look at the overall allocation it doesn't change.44Adams POI to president miller.45Miller We're checking that now to seeifits an error.Itdoes represent an error in the46formula.47Cooperman do we know where that 500 dollars will be allocated?14

I wouldjustask that the13director's salaries remain as they are since they do deserve that much money.14Adams Motion to voteonaccount 5500 President's salary15Kelland second16Green Objection can anyone present the arguments for the decrease in a salary17Trifunovski I thought a 1700 salary increase is too high though I did think some18increase would be appropriate and we came to this compromise after that discussion and19that is the number we came up with.20Kelland it started out as a negotiation between both sides and pres. Miller and DOF21Tascerella were happy with the number we came across.22Pres. Miller completely agree with what they said andI'mfine with that.23Adams Motion to vote24Cooperman Second25Adams votingonaccount number 5500 President's salary26VP fields voting on 5500, all those in favor say aye, all those opposed say no.27Abstaining.

Miller with the additional 2500 what kindsofprograms will35we be seeing?36Pres. Miller we can bring high quality speakers as well as extra money for trips for37lobby days and events to Albany.Itrepresents the ability to do those events.

1Pres. Miller when I gave Tasia the budget we discussed this for the dinner and we2wanted to continue this into the spring semester to discuss what we accomplished as a3student association and she said 5000 would be what they needed for funding.4Adams Motion to vote5Trifunovski second6Adams this is the oddball number 6650 for Tier 2 club funding. This is what we didn't7use during appeals8Pres. Miller we upped the amount so that these organizations will get more money in9the beginningofthe year and start to budget for those events.10Adams motion to vote11Cooperman second12VP Fields all those in favor say aye; all those opposed say no; abstaining. The ayes13have it amendment passes.14Adams we would be changing the SA fee from 89 dollars to 88 dollars. This is right at15the bottom. Aside from the 500 dollar differenceitwould be a completely balanced16budget.17Trifunovski -I know it thinks we could have gotten everything done with 88 but what18were someofthe reasons for uppingita dollar?19Pres. Miller -I think it is our duty to give the organizations for the best dollar amount20while not abusing that that represents the increase for organizations.Itis the students'21money at the ends and it is something we did not need.22Cooperman the 88 dollars number needs to be changed23Nau objection, shouldn't we do something with the 500 dollars?24VP Fields -we'rejustvoting on the amendment25Buchner motion to vote26Kelland second27VP Fields all those in favor say aye; all those opposed no; abstaining.

Do we also need to change the39allocation to increase that by 500 dollars and total spending?40Tascerella allocation would have to increase but total spending wouldn't. Would we41have to vote on this?42VP Fields we would have to present a whole new amendment43Adams we have agreed to amend 6506.Ifwe were to change allocation on pg 10ifI44couldpropose an amendment to just change the community services allocation and at the45same time to increase allocation from miscellaneous.46VP FieldsI would rather vote on them separately. Vote on community services first47then on allocation.48Kelland motion to pass by general consent on community services.16

Miller17Cooperman Pointoforder, I have the floor18Bronson -I yield to President Miller19Miller -I want people to remember that this is an advisory referendum and it is not20binding and that this budget represents funding that will help our students and will21increase our impactofSAon student lives. I see no reason to hold this for another week22anditis not in the Senates power to negotiate contracts and I made a strong argument as23to why.24VP Fields on page 306 in Roberts Rules [VP Fields reads aloud from Robert's Rules].25So it has to be the same meeting26Green -I understand that is itanadvisory referendum but I want to remind everysenator27inthis room that you're violating your oathofofficeby28Making other organizations more efficient I would like to see two things happen that one29thisrefis heard that we feel that NYPIRG should negotiate a contract withSAand I30talked to the associate director and he said that they will work and do whatever they ask.31We should listen to this referendum and work from there. I assure you all these questions32will be answered33Pres. Miller we have had mostofthis discussion earlierinthe meeting and I stickby34what we said about transparency and there is no direct dollar-by-dollar representation to35prove what the money is being spent on.36Adams the referenda is advisory and it doesn't compel the studentassociation president37to sign a contract and I think by failing both resolutions that senate does not want to push38the President to negotiate a contract. POI to President Miller: do you want to sign a39contract with NYPIRG?40Miller -NO41Adams obviously there is no need in the budget then42Cooperman -I represent a certain constituency at hall council and that being said I43cannot vote personal I vote for them and we have to consider what we are voting on .44NYPIRG is a contracted service and a contracted service needs to go through the45executive board and hewon'tdo that and Idon'tsee referring the budget as helping the46students considering the referendum comes back, the senate cannot sign a contract under47SA law and hope that NYPIRG will come back as a Tier organization and will come back48for our laws.17

PAGE 74

1Hubert -Ijustwant to say that NYPIRgasa contracted service and the President and2executive does not want to3And that was the massesofthis campus and they are currently voting on a referendum4that they want NYPIRg on this campus and he should take into serious account the5people who he represents on this campus. And I challenge youMr.President to hear the6voicesofthe people as they vote7Bronson As an At-largesenator I personally feel that I would be doing a disservice to8them without taking into consideration what they are doing with this referendum vote. I9feel Ican'tdo this though10Miller -I ran on a stance that I would be against NYPIRG so they had an opportunity to11voice their concerns there and I feel that the referendum is confusing since the question is12misleading.Howare they voting yes with their two part question. So I think that the13students did have a chance to voice their concerns and I was very vocal about that and I14think the vote willgoin my favor and I feel that this budget does not need to be re-15referred and Ithinkit is good across the board.16Kelland as a Senator at large I agree with Senator Bronson and no matter what my17personal opinions I can establish a decision but that is not all I need so I motion to re-18refer for one week.19Cooperman objection, POI to anyone who stands that way to Senate to allocating20money21Green -I think that the1251students who put forth the petition have the power to22compel the executive branch and I think that we could work on some sortofpetition and23it basically comes down to democracy and what the voicesofthe people want. Since he24only got 770 votes25Kelland -I would also like to point out that it was only to see that the ballot would you26like to support NYPIRG at 4 dollars a student I know that manyofmy fellow students27signed this to give students the right to vote28Miller under the priorities and criteriaoffunding a referendum is not under them to29fund an organization and also the question is deceiving and currently it is closer to 330dollarssoit is deceiving in that regard31Green the referendum is a tool for the senate in that it is asking us to do somethingas32representatives. So right now we are votingofa budget and I think thatthat referendum33deals with our representatives that we can clearly do something now and that is re-refer it34and I think we should do something about it now.35Hubert -I believe that this goes further than what the Senate wants and what the36president wants and this is pure democracy and they have asked for this they should not37be silenced and are using their ability to not be heard.38He will wait until his constiuents have said so and they are doing that now. WE should39not be silencing the ones we represent. The original wordingofthe constitution40We have voting individuals on this campus and that would be against the constitutionof41this campus and the42Accordino as at -large I can not speak to all students but without knowing what their43vote is Ican'tvote on this tonight44Pres. Miller-I'mgoing to yield to chiefofstaff Farnsworth45Farnsworth there is no way that no person in congress can know you're pointofview.46They vote on a platform and they vote on that. You work on that same premise and in a47direct democracy youdon'thave a direct voice. Youcan'ttalk to every single individual48you have to gooffthe basisofwhat you have.18

Should we wait for the students to state their opinion andwe'redebating some19peopleonthis?20Scharffenberger -I think the issue is to make an individual decision and your opinions in21understanding your constiuents and you should vote your conscience in that respect.22Coopennan POI to E-board:ifthe budget were to be voted on today would the23amendments be submitted after the referendum.24Tascerella no because we have to sent it to the presidentofthe college25Coopennan couldn't we submit a new budget without it being certified?26Tascerella once it is submitted wecan'tmake changes we could make transfers though.27Coopennan -Itis reflected in this budget that it is allocated a certain way and we could28voteonthis budget is flexible. This is the amountofmoney we have but we could move29it around30Trifunovski Itis obvious that wedon't'know the results and it is obvious that Pres.31Miller can decide to sign a contract or not but this budget will not go into effect until June3230thand while it does need to go through the proper channels why not wait to refer it for a33week. That way we can satisfy everyone and everyone will have closure since we will34know the results and those in opposition to this budget will have more closure knowing35we can go forward. The results are not obviousonanything and Ithinkwe should36consider referring it for one more week.37Kelland POI to Senator Trifunovski: when will you have the results?38Trifunovski -I will have them Thursdayby6pm and I am trying to lookinthe election39law I have to submit it as a resolution but I want to put it in everyone's mailboxes and I40am not getting enough answers from the election law.41Kelland then I would like to suggest that senators hold a special sessiononFriday after42the results come in seeing quite honestly that the people we have here that most people43have made it clear where they stand and we will not get 2/3 to call the question and we44will simply go in circles hereifwe do not.45Hubert first I would like to say that to move money around for NYPIRg NYPIRG has46to be in the budget and they are not in the budget at all so we would have to amend the47budget beforehand to even move money beforehandshould this referendum go through. I48would motion to defer the vote for a special session.19

PAGE 76

1VP Fields only the president can ask for a special session2Herbert motion to table the bill3Cooperman objection, Ithinkthat a special session would be unnecessary andifthe4budget was to be re-referred to a week a few days will not make a difference. The budget5is for the next year.6Pres. Miller there is only a few special sessions left to voteonthis budget. And my7reasons to not keep NYPIRG on campus is about accountability and how our money is8being spent andhas blatantly provided us with records that are inadequate and the only9time they do activity is when they are lobbying to not lose their money. We should be10lobbied by organizations that provide services for our students11Cooperman while I agree with many points, and I know I could vote today I motion to12re-refer to fInance 13Buchner Second14Guerrero objection we should not refer this bill to fInance because as Pres. Miller and15COS Farnsworth you should vote basedonwhat your constiuents want andmy16constiuents have told me what they want so yes I have not spoken to the 6,000 students I17represent, the information that NYPIRG has presented to us that the students should not18vote19CarltonO'Neil-There are organizations hard at work for their constiuents directly for20the budget you are stalling and our students who want toputonprograms for the students21and keep that in mind since contractscan'tgo in and you are stalling the students.22Bleiberg Pres. Miller has made the point that he will not sign the contract23Adams no one is going to dieifit is re-referred for another week and I remember this24when we did do the partial vote that it was a tie, I think that we should re-refer.25Buchner -I call the previous questionofre-referring26VP Fields We are voting to call the question2715-1-128VP Fields Vote to re-refer29Budget is re-referred to fInance for the periodofone week3012-3-23132SLE 42.49 Student Association Programming Board Guidelines33Trifunovski motion to wave34Kelland second35Bronson we are going to have a meeting on Saturday so we re-refer to policy for one36week37Cooperman second38Motion passes3917-0-040Re-referred to policy for the periodofone week4142SLE 42.56 Amendment to SLE 35.51 Student Association Grant Policy43Adams motion to wave the reading44Cooperman Second45Adams big thanks to ChiefofStaff Farnsworth and this is pretty much straight forward,46motion to vote47Guerrero second4814-0-320

I realize this is proximity to Student awards but18itwill be after that sinceIn Debt we Trustbegins at 7pm. We were talking a lot tonight19about some different things so let me give you some background about NYPIRG. The20fundamental that guide our organization have always remained the same and these21principals; well lets start with are accountability. This is the first principal that guides22NYPIRG. We have provided them with an audit to the Attorney Generals officeofNY23andI'mcurious to how many students have seen it? Anybody? Well SA has it and24should let you see it. Democracy and this is the oneI'mpassionate about the most.25NYPIRG really cares about democracy and the simple fact that there are some activities26on campus and even thoughI'moutsider, I live in Oswego and spend a lot0time on27campus and see great value that there is a lot to fight about on campus.Ifstudentsdon't28learn to bring forth issuesofdemocratic value then they will not necessarily bring those29into the real world.I'mproudofthis campus andI'mreally excited to still be here.30 Stability is the third guiding principle andI'llspeak more about that later and the fourth31principles is student power. You know only 18%of18-24 year old votes yet they are32targeted the most for credit cards and loans and this is why I think this event coming up is33an important event for them to attend and not for meorNYPIRG butjustto have your34constiuents be informed. I encourage you to tell your constiuents to go.Nowgoing back35to stability.Nowthe birthofSA and student government and the SA fee was all a36response to the same problem. The problem was that therewasn'tmuch student powerin37the 1960s and there was nosuch thing as the student activity fee and they had no choice38in what they wanted and they felt they weren't being represented. So outofthe social39turmoil, there was space to provide people with student unions and studentgovernment to40provide the possibilityofa student government and it seems to be that somewhere along41the line things got forgotten and for me personally going out to talk to students I talk42about the timeofstudent government and activity fees when it started we got this new43thing called the student activity fee and we got this interest in state government and44students said"ofcourse" and they got a new organization to bring them that.45Pres.

1one for our magazine.Itprovides a unique cultural experience to this community and2this literary magazine provides the students on this campus with the opportunity to3express themselves in a reviewed, student magazine. The GLR is for students by students4and it will be detrimental to the student bodyofthis campus.5We have workedonthe magazine the longest and as we have workedonstaff we have6made several improvements to the magazine. I have brought copies to the magazine for7you see. Just someofthe newer features we have included that were not in the other ones.8There is a professional binding on the side, we have a glossy cover page, thicker cover9page, more illustrations, the magazine is thicker and we have produced more10We have received even more artwork through the art department. The numberof11submissions has increased and our staff have increased. Ijustwanted to talk about some12ofthe fundraising we did. We had a bake sale and raised $150 and we have received a lot13ofdonations from the teachers. Also, this semester, becauseofour magazines cost 200014to produce, we have asked. The art department is helping us to print out color art for our15magazine. What the money will be used for is how much it cost to do the Fall magazine.16Mitchell was able to adjust the budget for $700 to put together the magazine so please17note the features that the adjustment would allow. We recently switched management18andI'mnot sure exactlyofwhat happened and I went to speak to Pres. Miller and I19heard two different things and she didn't know she was suppose to do certain things and20the President informed me that she was informed21Buchner so am I correct that you will be asking for $700?22GLR yes and the money we will be asking for a stapled binding which will be23decreasing the levelofquality and we will not be able to do a color copy and we will24only have 150 copies insteadof500. We have not received estimates. We wanted to25have someofthe creative writing department but they could not be here26Cooperman Pointofinquiry: are you a tier two or tier 3.27Pres Miller the confusion is that we allocated them the $2,000 maximum which was for28the entire year29GLR We had a miscommunication with our former editor-in-chiefwho left after the fall30semester.We'rejusttrying toputour magazine together for the spring.31Bleiberg have you thought about charging for the magazine?32GLR we feel that would be unfair for the student body because we provide a unique33service and the sole focus is on the student voice. Anditis not only a matteroffairness34this is other students' works andifsomeone could pick up their fellow students work and35read it then put it down because they had to pay for it36 37SAPB38Next weekonthe 24thwe are bringing Ramona Africa at 7:30 and she is going to speak39about religions tolerance and she will be also be speaking about someofthe movements40she'sbeen apart of. Also, we planonbringing Gym class heroes to campus andI've41been a pain to President Miller to get my contract signed for that event so please pass that42budget.43Green -I understand about the contract but remember there's another organization that44has no contract next year.45 46SAVAC47I will make this quick as possible so as a preface to the following we are non-partisan and48non-political we support the purposeofNYPIRGand we are in a unique position to have23

Also toMr.Duch and NYPIRG, we have been the Student Association Volunteer Ambulance Core for 35 years and we are very stable. As far as Virginia Tech, it is a national conference and I had the opportunity to meet withVT'semergency crew andIhave to say that they are an excellent response team and the way they responded. The professional commitment to treating patients and the impactitwill haveonthem. Preliminary information about how we would respond in a similar situation Kelland -I'dbe interestingifyou could attend the health and safety meeting this week. SA V AC No problemjustgive us the time. Bastian Tenbergen, Student Thanks for hearing me, it has never been the strengthofme to make short speeches butIwill try. Firstofall SAVACIjustwanted to say that you are here andI'mglad you'reoncampus. ChiefofStaff Farnsworth May I please remind youofwhat happenedin2000 when the Swiss government wanted to take place with the Euro and what they did was ask every single individualifthey were for it and they were against it so he said no.Thinkofthat when you thinkofNYPIRGandIwould like to raise an issue with the loyalty. Currently there are two sides in this matter: One pro NYPIRG one contra.Idon'twant to raise the NYPIRG questions are you really convincedorare youjustsaying what one two or three people are saying and spoon feeding you or is that what your constiuents want and there would not be a debate about re-referring the budget for another week. There is only a handfulofsenators who know what they are doing and what they want. They are representing what they want and not the students. They feel misrepresented and misunderstood by the Senate. Plus, Senators have been caught removing NYPIRG posters from boards and seriously is that how you do politics? Andifyou feel that you should not be a Senator. Trifunovski -ifyou see anything that youdon'tagree with during this election you can send me a written documentofwhat your problem is and sign and date it and time it and print your name soIcan read it or senditto my email at trifunov@oswego.edu and the same rules apply. Just make sure you name is on it and you provide details. Bastian -Iknow thatitis easy for me to stand here and sayIrepresent a lotofpeople but it is not easy to stand before you and speak like this.

VPFields -I'mgoing toturnit over to Senator Bronson and Policies recommendationBronson -wehadthe chance to talk to Dan and we as a committee got to talk to him and know more about him. After the interview we all met as a committee and we all unanimously recommend Dan Heyman for the positionofChief JusticeJones -When did you decide to be Chief Justice?Heyman -When Josh Miller came up to me and asked me about the job. I looked at my schedule and decided to make some changes and accepted the position.Cooperman -Could you outline some ideas next semester?Heyman -I sat and talked to policy about what I want to do with the court. I want to streamline the constitutional process so far as the approvalofthe club constitutions and organizational constrictions. So there is recourse where clubs know they are approved or not approved so that they are contacted and are all set. I also want to make it a more public entity. I don't want it to be just where it is litigation season and we'realloverthe place.I want to get our name out before litigation arises. I also want to make sure that paper workismuch easier to get your hands on like discovery motions and injunctions for hearing. I want that all electronically available. I want it to be as accessible as possible to the student organization on this campus.Guerrero -You have said you want to make the court more public, how would you do that?Heyman -I was talking to President Miller and want to have a presence at the leadership conference and also contacting groups through the constitutional process.Buchner -President MillerI'mcurious to how many people applied for the positionMiller -2 peopleBuchner -Will we ever see you again?Heyman-YesTrifunovski We asked him a lotofdifferent questions is that he wants to explain to us that he wants to get it more organized and that he wants to work with policy more so that we can become a great government and I think that is important because he wants to communicate. I think he is a great candidate.1forward and I think we should take a roundofapplause for the hard work you did for2everything the past few weeks.3Moving forward with the whole address, I'm going to talk about the progress with the4campus center. Like I said, the moving process; Tim Farnsworth and Nadia Dropkin are5working on the office space and by next week we will have that. The newoffcampus6apartment complex and I just talked to the builder and he wants to have a few more focus7groups soifyou're interested in that let me know. Just to let you know it'll be on8 Johnson road near Laker hall. They will be really nice and it should be beneficial for9students to have a new venue to go to. I think this is a new opportunity I would liketo10thank Dean Scharffenberger and for the vigil for the Virginia Tech incident. They did a11nicejobofgiving us a venue to express our feelings. I wasjustgiven a report about the12SAVAC garage. It is kindofin disrepair. Once I look over the report we'll have an13estimate for building a new garage. SAPB willbecoming forward to ask for money for14May Day.Itwill be humungous and will be really good for the student body. Also the15structure bill; we've worked really hardonthat and hopefully that'll be passed tonight.16I would like to bring some directors for approval.I'llstart with the Chief Justice17appointment Dan Heyman.18 19202122 23 24 25262728 29303132333435 363738 3940414243444546473

I guess I don't have a concrete20answer for that.21Anderson-Doyou have any plans for to work with the senate for your plans?22Heyman-I know we have to go through the webmaster for the forms but for23constitutions and what not;I'mnot surehowthe approval process works so that we can24streamline that and make it easier.25BronsonAs Policy committee chair we feel that Justice Heyman is a very strong26candidate and therefore motion to vote27Oakmansecond28VPFields This needs a 2/3 votes.2916-0-330[Mr. Daniel Heyman is appointed Chief Justiceofthe SA Supreme Court]3132Pres.Miller-I'mgoing to introduce you to Tafari Powis for Student Affairs.

The other one is going to get involved with the inventory26and the purchase orders and phone system. That is pretty much what our ideas are.27JonesDid you have any specific goals yourself?28Hill One thing was to increase communication between us and the E-board and make29sure everyone is comfortable with each other and themselves to make sure that things30work. Some things I want to do is work on this summer to get some binders for my31assistant directors in a plain English system so thatifan organization would go to them,32they would be more willing and able to help them.

I have four people to7bring down. The directorofAcademic affairs, Mike Pawlyk. Mike this year was the8presidentofthe biology club and he wasn't able to go to the leadership conference and9we have gotten to know each other and he knows how to get things done on campus.10Since biology club is an academic club Ithinkit would be a great way to get other11academic clubs involved on campus. Mike is a nice guy and has been able to12communicate really well with us over the years.13Cooperman Would you mind giving us a little aboutyou?14Pawlyk -I'mcurrently the biology club president and asked meifI was interested in the15position. This is something I wanted to do with the biology club but this would allow me16to dojustthat with more people and I feel I would be able to do that.17Cooperman Thank you very much I motion to refer to procedure committee for one18week.19Trifunovski Objection, how does procedure fit this position?20VP Fields Earlier in the year we had a statue that we voted and it specified that all other21directors that aren't mentioned go to Procedure Committee2223[Senator Cooperman reads from SLE42.32to clarify the appointment referral process24forSenator Trifunovski]2526Oakman So we are still allowed to have our own meeting withhimhe just has to go to27procedure first? So would you like to come to an involvement meeting?28Pawlyk Sure29Kelland -I would like to stress that most people in this room were sitting here when we30passed this bill. Procedure works with the internal partsofsenate and the reason they are31being referred to procedure is for that reason. Idon't'think it is right for the appointees32to go to one committee meeting.33VP Fields This legislation isonthe books so it is here.34Buchner Outofcuriosity who is the current director?35Pawlyk Sara Ressing36Buchner Have you had a chance to speak with her?37Pawlyk We have conflicting schedules so ithasbeen hard38Buchner -I would suggest you speak with her then.39Cooperman -I would like to inform the senate thatifyou have a problem with the way it40was set up,I'msorry. But there is no reason to do another meeting to interview the same41candidate. Motion to refer to procedure for the periodofone week42Kelland Second43Pres Miller Appointee for public relation, Nicole Magnison. I have known her for 444years now and she has helped me publicize for numerous events. She has beenonthe45executive board for Scales hall.

There have been some changes to the schedule11but the locations are right. Probably at your last senate meetingI'llbeable to update you12with our elections so you'll know who are upcoming e-board is. There is a numberof13events goingonso tell everyone you know about the things that are goingonthis week.14Attendance is important and we want to make sure May Day is a lotoffun for everybody.15MayDayis very important for the campus because it incorporates everyone, off-campus16oncampus the community. We will need volunteers for MayDaythat Sunday. Soif17you'reinterested stop by the SAPB office and talk to anyoneofus orjustleave a18message andwe'llreach them. Also, is there anybody who does not have a ticket for the19concert who wants to go?20Adams In case anyone needs to know about the special order tonight, I do have a21breakdownofthe cost.

Senator Issues Forum26Adams -I want to say thank you to everyone who came out to the campus canal clean up.27I saw Senators Green, ChristopherSugar...others, it was a really great time. The pizza28was good and the weather was absolutely gorgeous.Itwas a beautiful day and we all had29a lotoffun. There was a big chunkofthe campus there and a big chunkofthe city there.30So thank you to everyone who came and made it enjoyable31Trifunovski when I was speaking about a referral to Involvement I was at least saying32have it be a dual meeting with Involvement. While I understand it isanopen session,33asking a particular committee tobethere makes it more special and moreofa34requirement to be there. Basically what I am saying is that I was not going against a law35butjusthave a committee there that would deal more with these positions.Itwould be36more appreciated in the futureifthis comes up again to address the other committee. I37say that as respectfully as I can.38VP Fields -I understand what you were saying, Ijustwant to say that I suggest that you39saw some problems with the way it worked out today, I would encourage you to amend40the legislation with the way it is.41Trifunovski -I understand what the argument is and I understand what the law is to at42least invite unofficially to have involvement there43Cooperman For anyone who doesn't understandoragree with the legislation, not all the44directors are permanent only the DOF and judicial appointments areinthe constitution.45IfI need to personally invite the committees thenI'lldo that.Ona second note, I would46like to inform the senate about the proposal to bring wrestling to campus he has come47very far along with is and it is a really sound idea to get people involvedoncampus.8

1Buchner As everyone will notice, VP Fields made lovely copiesofOzzy the laker for2us. I would strongly encourage you to show people because next week I want to know3what you think.4Cooperman What is you general feeling about what people want?5Buchner It has been50/50and there are pros and cons to each character. I want to send6it out to the academic community and see what they would like. But the prosofthe man7is that he is a well liked character because he is not scary but the downside is that he8looks like Popeye. He is very masculine and some female students have complained.9Other schools that are lakers have the exact same thing it isjusta variation. Fish, he is10obviously a fish which people are excited about but we are talking about putting bubbles.11Ifyou go to the Sugar mascot website they have immense detail and there is nothing like12the fish13Jones Could you also create something that the man could do as far as the bubble thing?14Buchner We could do that15Green Is there any opportunities to put Oswego on there?16Buchner His tattoo would be changed to the current laker logo. It would be very hard17tochange all the uniforms.18Anderson Is there something we could do about he Saturday Night Fever pose goingon19there?20Cooperman Maybe we could put somethingonhis cape with the logo?21Buchner On the back I was hoping to put"OZ"ifthat's cool?22Green The name Ozzy, is there any way to make it correlated with OSU?23Buchner People call Oswego Oz so.24Buchner -I'mjustcurious to see what Dean Scharffenberger hastosay about this25Scharffenberger -Idon'thave any comment26Bleiberg Do we voteonthis as a Senate as a whole27Buchner -I'massumingofwhat we do andI'mgetting an ideaofwhat the students will28like and I guess when that is done we would purchase it.29Cooperman -Howfinal are these two selections?30Buchner -I stated last week I would like to see them submitted in drawing from in a31week. It has been a week andI'mnot opposed to it but we want tot get this bill done over32the summer.33Pres. Miller Could you ask them to draw an abominable snow man34Buchner It would be close to ask them to do the preliminary sketches but its getting35close to crunch time36Guerrero -I wanted to also goonwith what VP Fields said and it was a very great dinner37and a very pleasant time. I would encourage senators to go to these dinners. The clubs38appreciate it and our VP was given an award.AndI would like to inviteyoutothe39gospel choir dinner next week.

We would do a review at the first yearof45trying this but someone else must have decided to do it each year.46Anderson -I think we need to establish some sortofcriteria to review this so that47everyone is on the same page and they know whatwe'relooking for.11

According to the student count,10there are about 8,000 students. When appliedtothe questionitwould amount to11about $66,000. The next question is being reviewed;the same issue has made itto12the Supreme Courtinthe past. It must be neutral with no political views when13dealing with student activity fees. I took the premiseofthis argument and applied14ittoour issue.15-My second point is the fact that they are a contracted service. The have a16local coordinator, internships, etc. There is a guaranteed membershiptofee payers.17They are not entitled to have a petition, they are contracted alreadytoa specific18service, anditisnota student organization.19-President can use powers that shall not be denied20-Has been precedent in the past for this, question was shown for 2005, allowed21referendum22-NYPIRG actions over the past week include passing notestosenators; this is not23tobe tolerated. Wemettodiscuss the referendum too, I thought wehadan24agreement, but they later went against the compromise. They were informed25about budget for Tier 3, came anddidn'thave answers about numbers26-NYPIRG bylaws say they donotwanttobe a student organization. A student27organization uses money only for the benefitofthe student community;it28couldn'tjustgo to their causes.Ithas to go to others as well29-$49,000 is a lotofmoney; other organizations tendtoget less.Nostudent30organization got as much as this contracted amount31-Problematic lobbying and interference mustputrestrictions that prevent this3233Vice President N.

Racquel Crocker -I am a concerned senior and off-campus student. When 1 look at someofy'all,1 feel likeI'mlooking at the Bush administration. You are disgracing me. 1 was partofsenate, and nowI'dlike to say thatI'mglad that 1 am not anymore. Over the years, the Student Association has made negligent mistakes.Ithas become apparent that our voices do not matter. This has caused serious discontent in the way that things are going. 1 rise to make it known, that as a paying member, 1won'tstand by idol and watch my rights be suppressed. 1putyou in the position that you are in.Inthis hourofdarkness, it is an opportunity for you to change. Nobody is perfect,butthere are certain things you really need to take into consideration. When Andre he was wrong, he was put outofoffice in a second. Why not done like this, this time? Consistency is needed. Right is right, wrong is wrong. Start doing what you have to do please. CoopermanWhy not be more active, you say yourglad not to be here, why not get more involved in Senate? -1 have other responsibilities 1 have to deal with, 1 am from the outside, but 1 feel my voice should be heardjustas equally TrifunovskiWedidn'trepresent you, so you're saying you are here today because wedidn'tdo ourjobin representing you -Yes Fields1 want to applaud you for coming in here tonight. 1 think she is using her right to voice her concerns Cooperman1 concur Julissa Torres -I am here as a concerned individual. 1 am the presidentofthe Latino Student Union, and am active in other ways in the community as well. 1 would like to know from the Senateifthey keep recordsofthe meetings, andif1 would like to see them could I? -Not right now -Facebook is not a way to reach out to all students. 1 have been to numerous Senate meetings, a lotofyou know me, but mostofyoudon'tacknowledge me.Howmanyofyou have come to our meetings? Have you seenhowhard we work and the time consumed working? Have you even bothered? We did get someone to come to our meeting last year but that was only because elections were coming up. We are making a difference; wedon'thave to be a partofSenate to make a difference. Why are we facing this problem? Did you go through the proper procedures so that this wouldn't happen? 1 would like to see records. BronsonWhen do you meet? Every Monday at 7 p.m. FamsworthDid someone accuse the organizationofnot working hard? -Directly no, but when we stand before you, you tell us wearen'tdoing enough FieldsAll records are public; you can get it at any time.

I come as a student18ratherthana politic. I am a representativeofHart Hall and myself. SA stand for19student, allofus are students. Eachofus has a voice, and has ourownissues.20This ismyfirst meeting. Not here to blame people, I will take some blame. It21shouldn't have taken us this long to speak our voices. We should comejustso22support, not only in conflict. Today, all I see is people going back and forth. We23all have to take responsibility. Without students, there wouldn't be a Senate.Ifwe24aren't involved,howcan they represent us? We must look inside ourselves and25ask, why does it take this situation to get us to come to a meeting? We cannot26blame anyone but ourselves. As an incoming freshman, a lotofsituations have27occurred. When the issues were brought up, whywasn'tthat turnout like this one?28We need to check our priorities. Why weren't we voicing our opinion then?It29should be consistent, every week. Ifelt hat I must participate for my voice to be30heard. Everyone has taken math throughoutmylife. The point is everything31should be equal. That equal sign shouldact as a bridge. We must make sure this32bridgeis built so that we can all become one community.3334Benjamin Arney35 -I am hereonbehalfofthe Oswegonian, wanted to let everyone know that the36media is awareofthe story. There is an article that will show both sidesofthe37issue that will be published. A lotofyou said that most studentsdidn'tknow38about the issue, at leastnowmore people will be aware. I am writing it personally,39I have received many opinions voiced from both sides. I wanted you all to know40that to at least put someofyour concerns to rest.41GreenHas the Supreme Court alerted you about the issues?42 -Yes,byBen Patterson himself4344AsWey Saladin45-I noticed a lot about everyone talking here tonight. I think the important thing is46that we recognize everything in this room. There are people with other47responsibility, who are membersofother organizations. They are not nobody, but48people who represent more people. They are representing a greater group when49they come here.Ittakes a lotoftime to handle our responsibility, you handle your

We elect you to take the place we can't,4because we are membersofour own organizations. We are all helping, there are5new things happening. They preach to more people, so it is important for them to6come here and be informed. The people here are not nobodies, but active7membersofcampus.89Amelia SanJorge10-I feel likewe'reencouraged to come and speak our minds, but yet we are being11attacked for voicing our opinions. I was offended byhowwe were treated like we12were on trial.13KellandI wanted to apologize, on behalfofthe Senate, which is not what we14mean at all15-I have been here before, and that has never been the case.

Basically, he22found a referendum to be invalid. They found that the questiononthe petition was23invalid24-To be honest, wedon'thave to be here, that's why we elected senators. You are25our voice. Whether I am present or not shouldn't matter, you are here to elaborate26for me. Everything is not being tended to as they should. Indirectly I am a partof27Senate.2829Tanshia Henry30-I have a question. What are the steps to impeach a senator,ifthe student body31feels they are not doing theirjob?Would the information be online?32FieldsRefer to article 6, section 5. Shall be in the handsofthe constituencies.If33two thirdsofthe membersofa hall favor the removal, the senator shall be34removed.35-Ifbothparties are found at fault, who would hold the presidential position?36FieldsThe vice president would assume the duties, and then the Senate would37decide to have an election or follow the lineofsuccession.3839Darian M.40-This time I am going to be sterner. At what pointofmonitoring a meeting doyou41cross the lineofrespect? For example, I was listening to the chair bark at senators42and students. What person willjoinwhen people bark at you like that? At what43point do you respect a whole crowdofpeople? When we walked in, we were told44thatifwe were going to whisper, to move back. I have never heard that in another45meeting towards anyone else. At what point do you have to disrespect the people?46When you take thisjobyouhave to take your personal feelings outofit inorder47to govern. I am making assumptions, we all do it. But, is this allowed? I was fine48until I realized that I am seeing morethanjutsgovernment, we are seeing49relationships. And this is shown in your leadership.It'snot right. I shouldn't be

Thiswouldn'tbe fairifyoudon'tspeak.910Joshua Miller11-I chose to wait to be addressed so that you could all speak. I do maintainmy12innocence. I have only spent $100.00 and no more. I went door to door, several13meetings; itwasn'tjutsposters that won the election. What happened is that 77014students voted for me basedonwhat I stand for. Everything I did I checked with15elections before I did it. It had been approvedbyelections chair. I went to your16dinners before I was campaigning for votes to meet peopleonpersonal levels.It17wasn'tanempty promise, its promises that I will uphold. I maintainmyinnocence.18Oakman-I'mnot trying to attack, but please be careful when you say elections19committee, I am a member oft hat committee, and youdidn'tsit down with me.20Please address the individual. I would like to apologize that this is going array21-The finance committee chair is who signs allPO's.I brought numerous22allegations against the committee and they were heard so I understand.ButI23maintainmyinnocence24Coopermanthe Senate meetings are runbythe Roberts Rules,ifyou see any25breaches against this, bring it up so we can have order.26TrifunovskiI wanted to make it clear that although we all have questions, but27nowmay not bethe right time. Let us keep it to certain procedures and rules.28-Justinclosing,I'veworked with manyofyou and look forward to working with29youinthe future,ifyou have questions id be happy to sit and talk3031Julissa Torres32-I am here for public comment; do I need to define that? Idon'tthink so.Yougo33byRobert's Rules. I feelmyspeech is being limited.Ifsomeone up there has a34question, I feel that we should be able to ask that and notjustallow the senators to35ask questions.36Fields-Ifsenatorsdidn'tknow, you can yield time to the students for them to37speak.Ifyou want to let them speak I encourage you yield your time3839Ashley Saladin40-Given that the president is being sued, what faith can we haveinSenate?41TrifunovskiThere is a systemofchecks and balances,ifthere is a boundary that42we feel was overstepped, usually the Senate can override his vetoed. However43with that case, it was never brought up to the Senate. We will work harder to44create a better systemofchecks and balances45CoopermanI believe petitions and bills are handled differently46President TascarellaI have the power to veto a bill, there is a grey area for47petitions, and they will decideifI did something wrong, I feel that what I did was48right

What I actually said is "which was created for that voice".

Yes, NYPIRG supports the right to free speech, but we were not behind what was saidorthe movementofthe students; that wasontheir own -As for old business, we had the bottle drive for the Bigger Better Bottle Bill.Anarticle about it was published, and another will be coming. Also, WRVO will be interviewing me and another woman who does a lot with donating bottles. We may get involved with her; ask her to participateinour meetings -New business,wehave another local delegation visit coming up, wherewewill talk about the mid-year TAP adjustment.I'vespoken to some students who could have benefited from having this option, so they may speakonits behalf -So farwehave 6 groups signed up to our cell phone help campaign fighting hidden fees FamsworthWhy do you feel you were invited to the meetings as project coordinator, what actions did you take at that meeting? -Mainly listening,justsaid to know what you are going to doifyou do something, and to look at the handbook Oswego City Democratic Committee-1was recently elected chairofthe Democratic Committee, want to inviteyouto help us out, come to some committee meetings and so on. You could get involved, and there are internship possibilities. Not here to preach,justwould like to help you and to have you help us, and would like to see a relationship to grow.Youguys have a good thing goingonhere. March 29th we have the mayor coming to a dinner, student tickets are $25, but we could set up something to off-set the cost. Also, we have free campaign trainingonMay 5th a county legislator is putting the event on, will talk about campaign messages. Also, the senator will be coming to an event, also having agolftournament. Allofthese are coming up,ifanyone is interested pleasejustcontact me. 1 will be more than willing to work with you Benjamin Arney -Honorable membersofthe Student Association, Vice President Mapes, President Tascarella, and SUNY Oswego students, 1 come before you today to ask for change. We have all seen the outcryofthe studentsofthis campus to recent conductofSAmembers, to recent trials, and to recent allegations concerning our last campus wide election.Itis time for changes to be made, and it is time for the studentsofthis campus to see thatSAis listening to them and wants to change for the better. Therefore, 1 am looking for Senators to sponsor three piecesoflegislation. Two are constitutional amendments, the other a pieceofSA practice and policy. First, the issue concerningSApractice and policy. 1 am asking a Senator to sponsorlegislation stating that the Student Association must publish the current Constitution, Elections Law, and minutes from Senate meetings on their website for the public to view. This will allow students to be better informed about their own student government, knowing what rules they are following, and will perhaps shed lightonwhy things are done the way they are. In addition to this, should any changes be made to the Constitutionorto the Elections Law, students must be notifiedbye-mailno lessthantwo weeksinadvance, and the proposed changes must be posted as well so students will be given plentyoftime to form and informed opinion about such changes before they vote on them. The

One point that was made very cleartomeduring the recent trial brought against President Tascarella is that this sectionofthe Constitution is very vague.This must change. Ipropose thatwhena petition wantstobe circulated,itis brought before the Senate for a majority,upordownvoteonthe question.Ifthe Senate deems the petition question valid,thenthe petition process will continue as currently outlinedinthe Constitution.Ifthe Senate deems the question invalid,thenthe petition isnotcirculated until such time that the Senate deems the question acceptablebymajority vote. We must tie up loopholesinour Constitutiontoprevent another trial such as the onewejusthad. The second Constitutional amendment concerns campaign financinginpresidentialandvice presidential elections hereinthe Student Association.Aswecansee, this issue has divided our campusandhastomus apart at the seams.Wecannot allow thistohappen again. I suggesttwocoursesofaction. One,wecansend around a petition asking the student bodyofthis campusifthey believe that candidatesinthese elections should be abletoreceive donations and/or discountsonproducts theybuyfor their campaigns. After the students have let their voice be heard, the Senatecanthentake action. The second option istocraft a setofrulesclearlyoutlining campaign reform. Are donations allowed,ornot? Are other people allowedtomake signsinsupportofa candidate outside the candidate's campaign,ornot? Are discounts,ofany kind, allowed?Ifso, which are not allowed?Dopurchase orders havetobe checkedoffbythe Elections Committee Chairperson,orthe entire Elections Committee? These are all issues that have plagued this most recent election, as well as onesinthe past. So,nowI ask you: willyoustand idleanddonothing about these issues that are tearing apart the campus that we all love?Orwillyouset aside yourdifferences, your grudges, your agendas,andwork together for the purpose that Student Association was founded on,togive the students a voiceandmake the livesofthe studentsoncampus better? Mistakes havebeenmade,weallknowthat.Butletnotamanbejudgedbyhis mistakes,butinsteadbyhowhelearns from those mistakes. I pray that we will all be able to learn fromourmistakes. Any Senators wishing to contactmeabout writing these piecesoflegislationcanreachmeatamey@oswego.edu. I thank you for your time. Farnsworth-Youbroughtupaninteresting point about email,butwedon'thave that access. What role does the media play in informing the public? Because rightnowthe government plays a huge role,andinthis Oswegonian, it quotes the procedures incorrectly. Amey-I feel theyplayabig role,andthat they shouldplayabigger role. I think there should be a sectiononwhatgoesonhere every week. I was here last Tuesday, I gave the person who wrote that article information Ihadgathered. Unfortunately, I leftjustbefore the article was done,andIwaspersonally very upset with the articleandpicture, as well is the misquotes. Farnsworth-Whatrole does that playonthe perceptionofSAand its failures?Mediareportingcanmake it hardtoshowthat change -I agree,I'mnottechnicallyevena memberofthestaffthat is somethingtobe taken up withourstaffadvisor. I would seeanapology follow up articleinorder TrifunovskiIdon'tknowifyouputmucheffort pertainingtothe donations question .. ,youmade some good points, but didyouthink aboutwhatmight be the consequence for people who may not be abletoafford campaign material?

1-With this speech,itwas completely me, no one else. As far as financing goes, I2thinkthe $100.00 is great,butthen the question is do they get donations from3other students, discounts, etc.I'mnot saying its wrong,justsayingitneeds to be4made clear.5MapesCouldyousit with the committee tomorrow?6-I have class7Mapes-I'llsend youanemail then8Fields-Ifyoufeel this strongly, I would suggestyoujoinand voice your opinion,9and help take the leadonthis project.10CoopermanI would suggest you talk to procedure and policy as well.1112Justin Tossas13-Good evening.

According to the law, $800.0035will be allocated for campaigns. All unused funds will be returned to the36contingency account.

For allofthose whodon't17knowmeorhave made every attempt to forget me,myname is Scott Robinson I18was the Vice President last year. I want to thankmyclose friend Sarah Smith for19reading this toyouall, because I was unable to attend the meeting for personal20reasons.Atthis point Dr. Scharfenberger is probably thinking,"Whatis Scott21going to possibly say?" Well I will get right to the point, because thisis an22important night. Many people needtobe congratulated, including bothVPMapes23and President Tascarella. I also want to congratulate both President-elect Miller,24and Vice President-elect Fields. As everyone knows this is the last Senate meeting25for a couple people, and everyone should applaud thejobthey have done.26President Tascarella has accomplished a great deal, following a person that I27consider a great SA President. WhileVPMapes stood tall through controversy28last April, and had to fill the shoes I left for her.She'sdone a great job.What29manyofyoudonotknowis thatDanhasnowserved three different positionson30the E Board and Mapes has served the students for more than three years, serving31ona wide rangeofcommittees. I offermyhighest congratulationstobothof32these individuals. Iknowas this meeting approaches everyone is thinking about33EmeritusorThankyou resolutions. I have always madeita point to allow the34Senatetomake theirowndecision, so Iwon'tlobby anyofyou to give anyone35Emeritus or not.Ifthere is any question thoughonwhether someone should get36the honorornot, I wouldjustask what manyofyouare comparing their37performance to. Manyofyou do not know what Dan has done previous to this38year, nor do youknowwhatMapes has accomplished. I would simply39recommend that everyone in this room lookateach individual and what they have40accomplished through their tenure in SA. Sometimesyouwanttohold backon41giving out a Resolution because you wanttosave them for people that really42deserve them, which you should do.Youjusthave to look at each individual and43seehowthey have personally benefited SA. Last year for example, Ian Farrell44was more active than any President I can remember.Inhis two yearsinSAhe45rewrote the Constitution and reworked many agreements, including work with46contractual groupsoncampus. He attempted to make sure everyone was being47accountable to SA. Cassie Beal, in a matterofa single year rebuilt a relationship48with the CityofOswego; when timesinthe City were extremely tense. We look49at these two individuals and see that they both deserved the highest honor. Last

She showedstrength and determination in her early days, when there were uninformed bodies trying to strike down the Senate's decision to place Mapes in the Officeofthe Vice President. The Senate clearly made the right decision the night theyputMapes in office, and it has shown as she has helped take SA in the right direction.Danhas also helped take SA in the right direction over the past three years. Hehasworked with two previous Presidents and then running the showonhis own. I recently heard thatDaneven stood up to a contractual organizationoncampus, which only showed his strength in the position. Alright, I have made Sarah read too much already and have taken up too muchofyour time. MapesI'mso sorry I can be here tonight, but just know I am so very proudofeverything you have done.It'salways hard to follow the guy who used to say "Shizzle and Flavor Flav", but you have done it so well.Ifyou want you can give Sarah a hug, and pretendit'sme. Senators good luck, and have a nice evening. Also could you applaud Sarah for actually reading this for me NYPIRG -There was one more thing I wanted to say but I forgot so I willjustmove on.At4PMonthe13ththere will be a meeting, andonthe 25ththere will be a pollution/carcinogen workshop to fight pollution. A lotofstudents signed a sheet last year urging the governor to make changes, and those have come about. So, this is a great tie in to show how it affects cancer in living people. The18thor19thwill be a workshopontenants rights. They have rights and we want to inform themoftheir rights -We've beenonthis campus for16years, and we helped increase the student activity fee so that we would not be seen as taking money away from the students. The funding has been relatively stable for these past16years. People have been saying that issues have been goingonfor years, but I urge the Senate to get both sidesofthe situation. When a vote might take place, we feel cut outofthe process by a very few people. Once again,justwant to urge you to seek more information before any decisions are made GreenDoes the ad hop committee make sense now? Does it really matterifMiller will be the one makingthe contract, will it make a difference?-Itmatters because right now the budget processwon'thave any negationifthe senate decides to not give any money to NYPIRG. So, you need to start at the negotiation stage AdamsWith contracts, it is the executives call, the senate gives a voice during the fmancial policy, but mainly it is not in the handsofthe senate -Yes, the president'sjobis to negotiate contracts.Ifyou pass a budget that doesn't have a negation place to start from, you are actually taking that power away from the president. We were under the understanding that we would get to talk about tallofthis, seems like it would make sense to take some time and go more into detail with issues like this. Makes more sense to start at a negation level DirectorofFinance MillerNYPIRG is not in the budget, I decided I will not be bringing them back, I think they should come back and work through as a tier organization. That way there is an equal opportunity for NYPIRG and other organizations to budget. I have made the decision, I hope that they will come back andjustwork their way up the tier status levels

Frommyunderstanding there seems to be a pigeon holeofhowpeople view NYPIRG. There were many ideas onhowto handle the situation, even work with rock the vote, but we alreadyworked with them and were successful. People are registering to vote earlier and earlier, I think thatitis impossible to insist that every personberegistered when they enter into college SAVAC -Good evening. I am here because later you will be votingona bill for SAVAC. I am requesting $300.00to send students toanEMS event. Leading researchers will be presenting, includingoneondefensive tactics for offensive patients. I have already had two combative patients. When a patient strikes a memberofSAV AC, it becomes a felony. It is a minimumof16-25 yearsinprison. I'd thinkwewould all agree that we do not want to see any students spend time in prison GreenI support this,Ithinkyoushould have gotten whatyouasked for, haveyoulooked into other meansofobtaining the money? -No, we do not actively fundraise; weareallowing thatinour budget for next semester. There are numerous conferences, this is a local event, and a great way to get out there and gain experience. Wejustfound out about it Green-Youcould ask a memberofsenate to look at what insurance could do for you -Good idea I will look into that AdamsFinance is at5PMon Sunday, thank you for cominginAdamsMotion to relinquish the chair CoopermanSecondExecutiveReportPresident Tascarella -Board guidelines are being submitted, hope you all lookitover; there were many meetings to make sure everyone could live with it, defined responsibilities. This will take the placeofthe old group's constitution.Nextweek people willbehere to answer any questions you haveonit -Weareproposing a $3 increase this year in the budget. There will be more opportunities to do programming, want to make sure that there are proper funds for that. We are going to voteonitintwo weeks, hear appeals next week. NYPIRG was not included in the budget, that money was putinwhere all the other clubs are. I feel very strongly against this, I have lotsofinformationonitinmyofficeifyou would like to seeit-The other big change will be intramurals, a lot have been cut over the years and students want to see moreofthem. We are proposing a big increase for that next year Kelland-Howmuch with the $3 give to the budget? -Not sure GreenWhat is the reason for the increase? -To drive more money for organizations, including equipment to operate Tim DutchIs that moneyjustfor clubs? -Not specific, its juts asanoverall for the whole budget

Hopefully there will be 3or4 students who work to make it happen on time. I wanted to make sure students were involvedinit, going to meet later this week so that some students could be registered to workonitina capstone class. -We had the tours and some good discussion after. There is a blog for the Campus Center, I will email you the link later.Ifyou could please register foritand discuss it that would be great. Give your input and talk about questions -I encourage you to go to the Democratic Committee meetings, it could be beneficial Yesterday I choose three student art pieces, bought them and gave honorable mentions to others. Hopefully they will be put up in the future; they will be displayedin128ifyou are interested in Tyler Hall -Student Involvement Awards are coming up, encourage you to register. There are many different awards that you can win, including senatorofthe year. Deadline is this Mondayat4 PM -Have been meeting with Josh about the transition into president, should be a smooth transition -The vote on the veto will be this week. Oneofthe big things the BoardofTrustees did was ensure therewasn'tany fraud and that weweren'tloosing any money. We had put in a policy for internal controls regarding purchase orders. IF the DOF is running for president DR. s. would sign for it.He'sonly reviewing,notapprovingorauthorizing it.Itsays thatPO'swill be approvedbythe president and the directoroffinance. So, the DOF needs to be signingoffonit.

TrifunovskiHow do you think we could provide a solution when we have a conflictofinterest? -We can discuss that when we go over election law, to overturn the vetojustbecause thereisn'ta solutionisn'ta good reason -I'd like to thank people since this is my last meeting. First ill start with Dr. S, we used to argue about things, its been a pleasureto have your guidance helping me, I look forward to seeing you after I graduate. Second, President Emeritus Farrell, he has acted as a mentor and really helped me. Third, Director Buchner, I'd like tothankyou for taking the position and working at it. Next, Josh Miller, I wish you the bestofluck,I know you will do a great job. Next, Tim Farnsworth, for allofyour help over the past few months,ifyou have any questions feel free to call me. I would thanks Westfall but heisn'there. And last, Vice President N.

I think I walk away a better4person.IfI could offer any advice to President Elect Miller I would say to work5closer with Senate, go to more committee meetings, andbuild that relationship.6You need to stand up for what you believe in. Evenifits hard, you should always7do whatyoubelieve in your heart to be right. I wasintheoffice allofthe time,8every day, and senatorsdidn'treally comebythat much. I would hear that some9people were unhappy,ifyou have concerns go talk to Josh anddon'trush to10judgment.

They will be available at the circulation desk. We finalized the financial31aspectsofit, its about $30.00 a book including labor, which comes to about32$1,200.00 total.

DirectorofFinance Miller 65.02 $8,824.52 65.05 $0 65.06 $2,826.00 We willbehaving a numberofmeetings over the courseofthe next week.Ifyouturnto the back page, the first column is last years, second this years, third is proposed, and fourth is what has cut and allocated. There is about $40,000.00 that we will not make as income, which is why we are increasing the fee.Wemight work for the comer store, a lotofpeople are asking to keep it -Put more moneyinfor intramurals so that therecanbe moreofthat, a lotofstudents take partinthem -We meetonWednesday and Friday during college hour to talk about budget for anyone who is interested.I'dlike to talk aboutitmoreindetail with allofyouGreen-I'vebeen questioning whose authority that was, whose was it? -Dan and I do not want to sign a contract with NYPIRG, so there will be no signing President TascarellaWe have both said we will not sign, so they did not budget for that -For the organizations,itis not possible to make it happen without cutting budgets FamsworthBudget council did hear and ask questions about this correct? -Yes, got a few answersbutnot to the questions I asked for.Atthis point I feel wecanallocate information to better causes AdamsCouldyouexplain the reason for increasing the president salaries? -I upped pretty much every salary, looking at the way people have been paid, there have been no raises.Itis hard to get real resultswhentheyaren'tgiven proper compensation. I wentinand talked to Cindy,you'reexpected tobeinoffice hours 10 hours a week, felt it was only fair to give raises.Byoffering higher salaries, I think we will get better results, and will get people to perform more. Also, you get a better poolofapplicants Kellandwhy is there differences between directors pay? -Basedonthe amountofhours I expect directors to work. Less work has a lowerpayBronsonA concernofmine is that Ididn'tget paid anything,howdoyoujustify giving yourself that largeofa raise?

PAGE 83

1-Idon'tthink its fair to say we are expected to do allofthis work and not get paid,2its something that should be paid. Some schools do much more for these positions3that are not possible here but wanted to make this change4Vice President N. MapesI struggle with the amount I make right now. I have5been fortunate to get a few hours from admissions, but other than that its been a6struggle.It'sso hard to liveoffof$84.00 every other week. I was in the office7until 10 or11PMevery night almost. A little bit more is a good thing for this8-I do have a part timejobthat takes away from what I could do in the office.It's9hard,it'stiring, and the raise could help take away the need for those part time10jobs11President Tascarella-It'stough to get everything doneifyou are worrying about12money all the time. This can improve SA13Director BuchnerI have the lowest salary, and I am the only one here besides14Miller.Ifyou approve this, you mandate that they come to more meetings.15-I would request youdon'trequire directors to come, it could be confusing to16have them answer to the senate, and it takes away from the presidentofSA.Ifwe17don'thave the answers they can be called, but shouldn't be required. It can18become very confusing to deal with19TrifunovskiI know wecan'tsatisfy everyone, but does the Senate think the20budget honestly reflects the viewofthe students? Are there other things that could21be looked at, is this honestly what the students would want? You want directors to22get more money to give them motivation to do their jobs, but where is any senator23being paid and yet we get paid24-I do think salary is motivation,it'sincentive. I walked door to door to campaign,25and this reflects what I got from those students.I'veworked with students and26organizations all year. Students react to having a good program. Ithinkto cut27down whatwe'vedone with SAPB would be detrimental. Also working with28media groups, hopefully in the future we can raise that. Couldn't do that this year,29but hopefully in the future. This budget is a way for us to be a more programming30organization and to give students better quality.Ifwe keep shortcutting the budget,31wewon'tget the quality needed32-Movingonto student assembly,ifthere is anyone who still wants to go let me33know now and I can call andtryto get you in34Vice President N.

There's no reason to swear and be44belligerent with someone from SA like that. When I acted outoforder, I45apologized,that'sall I was asking for.
