'Business as usual' for ASUA

Despite recent allegations against Student Body President Cade Bernsen, student leaders say everything is fine at ASUA.

"Business is open as usual," said student government adviser Jim Drnek in a Nov. 30 interview.

Although two Cabinet positions are vacant, Executive Vice President Erin Hertzog is confident the Associated Students of the University of Arizona Senate will approve the nominations at tomorrow's meeting.

The people to fill the cabinet positions of university relations director and elections commissioner have been interviewed and are awaiting senate confirmation, Hertzog said.

The university relations position has been vacant for more than a month and was not immediately filled because others within the Associated Students of the University of Arizona were doing the duties of the office, Hertzog said.

"There wasn't a dire need for it," Hertzog said. "As a whole, everyone in the office has been doing stuff that the university relations director would've been doing."

The role of the director is to act as a liaison between ASUA and campus departments and organizations. The director also serves as a representative for student government, according to the ASUA Web site.

The position of elections commissioner became vacant after Tyler Carrell's resignation last week.

Despite the resignation, the Student Recreation Center vote Carrell presided over during his three-week tenure still stands, Hertzog said.

"He was there to make sure it was an unbiased vote," Hertzog said.

The Rec Center vote awaits final confirmation at an upcoming Arizona Board of Regents meeting.

The senate has the option of bringing additional impeachment charges against Bernsen for failure to attend last week's regents meeting, which is a requirement of the position, according to the ASUA constitution. No formal decision has yet been reached by the senate concerning additional charges.

The senate will conduct a hearing to decide whether to impeach Bernsen at tomorrow's meeting, which is tentatively scheduled for 5 p.m. in the Agave Room in the Student Union Memorial Center.

ASUA Program Coordinator Claudia Davila could not be reached for comment.
