Once again I write this letter to ask the student body this questions: What do you think is worth $100,000 on this campus?
Today the ASUCD Senate will vote on SB#77, a bill that if passed, would create the ASUCD Entertainment Council Large Show Reserve. This reserve would consist of $100,000 pulled from ASUCD’s capital reserve, funds that are indeed made up from money of each and every student on campus.
The sole purpose of this $100,000 reserve is defined in the following excerpt from SB#77 “Entertainment Council currently operates with an annual budget subsidy of about $90,274. However, the amount currently budgeted for Entertainment Council is not sufficient to bring many popular artists to perform at UC Davis.
So I ask you, fellow Aggies, do you want senate taking $100,000 of your student fees and “setting them aside” to be spent on concerts? Or would you rather that money be spent on something more meaningful?
Personally I have a lot to say so that is why I will be on the third floor of the Memorial Union today at 6:10 p.m.
Hope to see you there.
