USG Must Prioritize Transparency

Rose Hill’s United Student Government (USG) did not disclose sanctions that were placed on candidates last election cycle, and that it is USG’s policy not to disclose to voters when candidates are sanctioned. The Ram’s editorial board does not support this policy, as voters deserve to have full transparency when casting their votes. https://thefordhamram.com/86045/opinion/editorial-4-13/

In order for USG to be the voice of the student body, its election process must become more transparent.

USG Fails to Disclose Prior Sanctions Against Candidates

With United Student Government (USG) elections starting today, Monday, April 11, The Fordham Ram conducted an investigation into USG election processes which uncovered a lack of transparency about candidates who break the organization’s lengthy rules while campaigning, raising questions about why USG does not disclose important information to voters.

The investigation discovered that in the 2021 USG election cycle, its Elections Commission placed sanctions on several candidates then-running for office after an internal investigation into misconduct. USG’s standard operating procedure is not to publish or share any information about such investigations’ results.

According to several students interviewed by the Ram, the sanctions were put in place after someone complained to USG election officials about a series of text messages shared in a group of at least 11 USG senators, executive board members and committee members that disparaged another member of USG. The name of the group chat in which the messages were sent was also changed to various insulting phrases about said candidate.

The Ram spoke to Fordham students who feel it is important for USG to be transparent to the community it is elected to represent.

Intense and seemingly unimaginable, “The Glass Castle” is a memoir that nearly reads as an inspirational fictional tale.
