And this one, which came a mere four days after last week’s surprise announcement:

Reps, I regret that Alicia has chosen to step down, and hope that she chooses to renew her involvement with the Assembly.

Additionally, I have considered all interested candidates for VP of MSA, and have selected Nicole Stallings. I will be making a motion to appoint Nicole as Vice President at our first meeting (which will be Tuesday, September 6th at 7:30pm).

I selected Nicole for the following reasons:
She brings an important voice to the excutive board.
She represents herself and the Assembly well, and has acted with great integrity.
She is excited about MSA and the position.
She is dependable, and has excellent communication skills.
She has demonstrated her commitment to the Assembly through her work with MSA financials.
She is currently working on instituting new reforms to the BPC application process.
She has worked with Rodger Wolf, MSA’s financial advisor to conduct the MSA audit.
She has been working with the Alumni Association to lead fundraising efforts for the Assembly, and spark communication among MSA alumni.
She has a strong understanding of the culture and work within the Assembly.
She can motivate others well.
She is an honors student from the school of LS&A.

She has also chosen to retain her Vice-Chair position on BPC, and continue her work in that arena.

I look forward to seeing you all at CHANGE (please register at, steering (this Sunday at 6:00pm at Chambers), or at the general meeting.

All the best,
