PFC votes down stipend model reform

The EMU Boardroom was packed tonight, as the PFC voted to table the proposed stipend reform indefinately. The meeting got off to an unexpected start, when At Large Member Matt Rose asked Chairman Oscar Guerra to step down for sending this email. When Guerra declined, the matter was brought to vote, and soon Vice Chair Micah Kosasa was running the meeting.

The crowd set the tone for the evening, beginning by dumping the entire stock of magazines in front of the Commentator office into the adjacent recycling bins, and ending with an angry rant from Ty Schwoefferman. If the PFC had any faith in the proposed reform, it evaporated into the stuffy atmosphere. At Large Member Annie Blomberg called it “a work in progress,” PFC Senator Sunowen was adamant that she didn’t want to see groups lose money, nobody wanted to be associated with the idea, and its merits weren’t much discussed. Matt Rose made the motion to table, and it was passed. The PFC decided to hold a forum on the issue. That’s when Ty started shouting “THIS IS THE FORUM. THIS IS THE FUCKING FORUM!!” Then I passed out. When I came to, people were still talking about it. I left.

    It’s sad that the giant poster of Anne Coulter on our bulletin board didn’t even get touched. Especially because we’ve defaced it ourselves by putting “conservative safe space” stickers on her mouth and cleavage. I thought that would be the first thing to go, but I guess the issues were just more offensive.

    At least nobody’s vandalized the office door in a couple of years.

    Ian- No, and neither did any of the 30-odd folks who were out there. Funny, that.

    Of all the PFC meetings to miss.

    My advice to the Commentator, print far more issues than there is demand. Justify this on the basis of a brave defender of liberalism throwing Commentator’s away. Run a budget deficit because of this unexpected event. Then you will be awarded a budgetary increase during the next PFC process because of your fiscal irresponsibility.

    Did you see which brave defender of liberalism dumped the Commentator issues?
