SGA reviews budget, hires office manager

by Matt Quane
The Metropolitan

Metro’s Student Government Assembly discussed the budget, tuition and also grew by another member during their meeting last Thursday.

Nikki Booton was voted in unanimously as the official SGA Administrative Assistant.

At the suggestion of W.H. “Butch” Oxendine, executive director of the American Student Government Association, the SGA now has an office manager whose job it is to “help navigate the often confusing bureaucracy of a higher-education institution and can eventually become the ‘oracle’ of MSCD information.”

“In this position, I hope to help in any way possible; whether its through my clerical duties or as a friend,” Booton said.

This position will be new for the office, though getting along with the existing members is not looking to be a problem for Booton.

“Everyone is very laid-back and willing to help. I just love this campus – the people are so nice,” she said.

A brief review of the SGA budget showed that there is approximately $8,000 of funds left for the SGA.

The SGA plans on using what’s left of their original $130,000 on programs such as the Student Leadership Awards and campus events such as the Spring Fling.

The SGA also discussed the possibility of rejecting the proposed tuition hike.

The Board of Trustees has proposed this hike to help pay for maintenance services normally taken care of by the Auraria Higher Education Center.

AHEC oversees operations on campus such as maintenance, campus police, parking and other services.

The Metropolitan reported in last week’s issue that students could see a hike of nearly ten percent.

The SGA argued that current AHEC funds could easily handle the amount of facility management necessary and that more care should be taken as to how AHEC funds are appropriated.

The motion to reject this hike was eventually dismissed.

American Student Government Association  

The American Student Government Association will provide all Student Government leaders and advisors nationwide with networking, research, and information resources and will teach them how to become more effective, ethical, and influential leaders on their campuses. ASGA also will promote the advancement of SGs, conduct research as the nation’s only “SG Think Tank,” and advocate the importance of having a vibrant, autonomous Student Government organization at every institution in America.
