Editorial: SGA’s oversight unacceptable

The QU Chronicle

“When the opportunity was presented to the Public Relations Committee, immediate action was appropriately taken,” reads the letter from Jennifer Walts.

This statement is disingenuous. Walts acknowledged being aware of the violation last year, when she was the treasurer of Dance Company. For this entire academic school year, Walts knew that Dance Company was in violation of Student Government policy and this should have come to light when tryouts were held this year.

According to Assistant Director of the Student Center John Stinchon, the violation was brought up to SGA more than once this academic year.

The knowledge existed. The proper actions, until March 24, did not.

The Chronicle will acknowledge that SGA members face a busy schedule. But that comes with the territory. That should not be an excuse.
