Proposed campaign cap would test ASSU constitution

The ASSU Undergraduate Senate will continue debate Tuesday on a much-anticipated campaign finance bill authored by Executives Angelina Cardona ’11 and Kelsei Wharton ’12. The bill, with the potential to reform the entire executive campaign process, would set executive-campaign spending caps and decrease the amount of funds offered through public financing if it can overcome concerns about enforcement and constitutionality.

ASSU executives, former nominees reflect on Constitutional Council process

In June, Brianna Pang ’13, Oz Hasbún ’13 and Alex Katz ’12 received an e-mail from ASSU president Angelina Cardona ’11 informing them of her intent to nominate them as members of the Constitutional Council, the judicial ruling body of the ASSU. Four months later, Pang, Hasbún and Katz each received another e-mail from Cardona, but this time with a different message: they had been replaced. Three new nominees, David Hoyt ’12, J’vona Ivory ’11 and Samir Siddhanti ’12 had been offered the three available council positions.
