Since publishing Monday’s post (“In other news“), I’ve learned that I got something wrong — and that Student Government got something even more wrong.
SG statutes do allow the student body president to appoint the “student media outlet senior leadership” (see 501.230
Student Affairs head Charles Brown informed me yesterday that this rule has been on the books at least since he arrived at FAU in 2006, but it was news to me. And University Press leaders who served before me. And the University Press‘ adviser of 12 years. SG never informed our student media outlet’s senior leadership that the statute was created.
Brown, who signs off on all SG legislation, couldn’t tell me when the statute was established or whether it was established in accordance with state laws, which require an open process. I’m investigating the matter and will publish an update when I have the full story.
UPDATE (9/21/11): Current Owl TV interim station manager AJ Jordat turns 29 on Tuesday of next week (Sept. 27), not Tuesday of this week, as originally reported.
