Thanks for Change OSPRIG

We found a little note under our door yesterday night from OSPIRG  & OSPIRG President Charles Denson. It was a envelope containing $1.75 and a note on the back of a Haiti fundraiser flyer. Thanks OSPIRG and  Charles for the laugh and cup of coffee! However we have 25 staffers who all want $1.66,  and also some alumni in Portland and Salem also want $1.66 to be sent to them off campus. I’m positive someone in OSPIRG knows how to send money to people off campus.

    Cool! A Haiti relief event. Can you post a scan of the other side of the flier?

  2. Michael G. says:

    I want my $1.66. Plus a refund of my incidental fees less the cost of student publications and the services I actually used. Finally, I want to be paid whatever the salary is for a PIRG campus organizer for my services rendered as an OC associate editor.

    Why? Because I took a vote of UO students and the vast majority of those who responded to my poll feel that I should get the money.

    The respondents really jumped on the idea when I promised them a chance at an internship which would provide them real-world experience working for a non-profit organization. I also said that I’d speak to the publishers on the cost of textbooks and go harass the Army at Umatilla Army Depot. Oh yeah and did I mention internships? And, I’ll clean the Willamette River, too!

    I asked Charles D. for $1.66 twice today. He failed. I asked many Ospirger’s for $1.66. They failed. So, I decided to stand out at 13th and University while they were gathering signatures with a sign to let people know about OSPIRG. They steal students’ money and spend over 80% of it OFF Campus. After being approached by many members, not a single one of them could argue the facts I had stated on the sign I was holding. I mean, you have to give them some credit, they didn’t lie to me about it…. Except for one girl.

    Give him a break, he’s a Leprewok.

    His handwriting looks like a four-year old got a hold of a pencil.

    Plus 20,000 some odd students. They’re about $100k off.
    I’m sure we’d take a check though.
