Recall the President…

November 15, 2007

…of GPSA! Yeah, sorry for the let down. Maybe not the President you were looking for.

Apparently there is movement afoot to recall the Graduate and Professional Student Association’s President, Joseph Garcia. I’m not sure what the deal is… travel grants, budgets, favors for friends, political agendas — oh, my!

I’ll let an article in Wednesday’s Daily Lobo set the scene for ya:

The [recall] petition states Garcia should be recalled because he did not manage the GPSA grant process and oversee the timely dispersal of the Student Research Allocations Committee funds or Special Travel Committee funds.

. . . .

[Max] Fitzpatrick [chairman of the Student Research Allocations Committee] said there were 86 applications and 12 readers. The readers did the best they could, but graduate students have busy lives, he said.

…blah, blah, blah. Future leaders of tomorrow, yippee! My advice (because I know you’re wondering): Play nice. Forgive. Compromise. Fix. Get your noses back in the books.

Look, baby, I’m a problem solver.

The aforementioned Max Fitzpatrick wrote a response to the article that appeared in Thursday’s Lobo. Totally awesome. Can’t say these people lack passion.

    No regrets. Did a great job. Recall Failed, based on personal differences and lack of respect for others!!
