New year. New management.

Posted in Uncategorized on January 24, 2011 by Brandon

The old Student Government blog is back, but with a new face.

Brandon Ballenger, the senior reporter who fervently blogged about SG issues for almost three years is departing to start a family of his own with his new wife from New Zealand. And after a semester of training, I’m taking over now.

The blog will keep its essence—covering everything related to SG—but I’ll try to give it my own spin. While Brandon was an ace when it comes to Excel charts and graphs, I’ll attempt to make policies and resolutions something that the average Florida Atlantic University student can understand and relate to, that way, they’ll care about it.

Don’t get me wrong. Numbers are an important part of Student Government and it’s often in the reckless distribution and use of funds where some of the best University Press’ stories have originated. For this reason and others, numbers will still be present here.

My goal with the blog is for it to not just be a source of SG news for House representatives and student leaders who egocentrically want to read their names on the screen, but for every student who wants to know where their $10 fee and other money they pay is going.
