ASUO Flurry

Unexpectedly (or expectedly, depending on how you see it) both Senators Lauren Zavrel and Kyle McKenzie have resigned from their seats. They both stated that they were too busy and had too many commitments outside of ASUO. While Senator McKenzie had clearly lost interest in ASUO in the weeks before his resignation, Zavrel’s comes as a surprise to me. They both represented different but fairminded voices on the Senate body, and will be missed if not by everyone on Senate, at least by me.

Perhaps unrelated (or related), Senator Kevin Parks took one of my Facebook notes seriously and sent out excerpts from it on the Senate listserv with the hopes of revealing something new about me to the Senate body. Essentially, I had made a joke about running in Elections and that I wouldn’t do anything once in office if elected. Senator Parks failed to see the humor in it.

I was going to make a joke about resigning from Senate following in the footsteps of Zavrel and McKenzie. But I guess I’m not allowed to make jokes anymore, since no “actions or statements by a public official are above consideration and critique”.

    Funny I got interested when you entered with a looming joke yet to be told, yet the explaination of a joke not being well recieved as being not funny really kind of sucks. LOL for self senses, make me laugh not cry Jin. No worries as you well know there are plenty of appointments to go around, don’t be to outwardly abashing, what would Rice think? Got rice? Sri Lanka is missing it’s spice… Asou is just right…
