Talked about court rectifying issues, how do you see judicial review comes into that, think court is final word…<br> - <br> - Cody each branch has ability to interpret constitution, but it states clearly court has final word. While others should look and read, believe court’s responsibility to issue final ruling<br> - <br> - Powers would you say that in const saying that court has final word, would you say bylaws also ties into court having final word<br> - <br> - Cody to an extent, senate has ability to change bylaws if needed.

Should especially be respectful in this room, willing to work with people and the association.<br> + <br> + DO CONFIRM, 7-6-0, STEVEN OSTROWSKI, EXTERNAL AFFAIRS COMMISSION<br> + Yes: Ajlouny, Deepak, Frick, Friedman, Harris, Molnar, Vice President Carnes<br> + No: Amaha, Fluet, Peake, Rosas-Romero, Xie, Zamora<br> + <br> + Amaha motion to confirm chief justice of court.<br> + <br> + Tim Cody: on court since end of fall quarter last year.<br> + <br> + Peake great applicants, Tim Cody by far has great plan for court, wants to strengthen ties between ASUCD and the court.<br> + <br> + Markevich what are your plans for next couple years?<br> + <br> + Cody thought a lot of things court needs to work on, some things have strengthened. One of big goals is increase communication between other branches, usually meetings are just us and Mikalonis. Seems to other members that we’re not getting much done, only public view is during hearings. Maybe start filling in rest of body as to what we’re doing, maybe try to get senators and chairs to our meetings. We also need an easier way to access our previous opinions, SGAO most part, like us to have them on our own so we can see precedents ourselves.<br> + <br> + Friedman what do you believe is the role of the court in the association?<br> + <br> + Harney court is there for purpose of area in bylaws that doesn’t make sense, leads to dispute, there to draw on both documents to figure out how to fix. Other duty if someone doesn’t do their job to receive this complaint, make an order for that person to complete. Feel should not step out of bounds, issues need be brought to us.<br> + <br> + Harms hopefully soon court will have new justices confirmed, people on court never heard a case before, maybe never read codes etc. How do you plan to ensure these justices are trained?<br> + <br> + Cody according to rules/procedures not really my job, technically the job of the government advisor who should set up a meeting with the ASUCD attorney… It never happened with me might not with new justices either. It’s important before someone hears a case that they be very familiar with bylaws and codes, so I guess I would encourage them to read and be familiar.<br> + <br> + Powers what’s your opinion on judicial review within ASUCD. Talked about court rectifying issues, how do you see judicial review comes into that, think court is final word?<br> + <br> + Cody each branch has the ability to interpret constitution, but it states clearly court has final word. While others should look and read, believe court’s responsibility to issue final ruling?<br> + <br> + Powers would you say that in constitution saying that court has final word, would you say bylaws also ties into court having final word?<br> + <br> + Cody to an extent, senate has ability to change bylaws if needed. Even though we would technically have strong opinion, precedent on reading bylaws, senate can always change those.<br> + <br> + DO CONFIRM, 12-0-0, TIM CODY, CHIEF JUSTICE OF THE COURT<br> + <br> + Amaha motion to move into ex-officio reports.<br> + <br> + IX.

How is that going to impact in terms of working with other commissioners and not necessarily tak<br> + <br> + Ostrowski in event two res contradicted passed down, look at both and dismiss author and look totally at content of resolution. Consider content, factually correct. Whether really serves students, left or right. if res fails to uphold that,m wouldn’t be so favorable to them. Res that are too extreme out of mainstream (L or R) probably wouldn’t do so well with me.<br> + <br> + Ajlouny want to say I personally believe you are most qualified. Why did you choose EAC<br> + <br> + Ostrowski applied to every commission, informed about interviews, guess one of reasons with external is politics is what I do, poli sci, involved in clubs and campaigns, my success rate with internal matters not going so well, figure going outside doing ext thigns and reaching out might be good change of course. Any commission would have been great to be on<br> + <br> + Harris seeing in comm. Often controversial issues, would you be willing to coop with other views diff than yours, how ould you go about that crate environemn where everyone can speak<br> + <br> + <br> + Ostrowski various things comm. Can do to shut of senate, seen it with myself and other situations. Issues simply becoming circular, at one point need to call to question. If new input in public, immediately try to push for comm. Discussion premature, cut someone off, that is something I will not do at all.. that needs to be looked at. If they have something to say whter or not I like something I will look into. Also give deferments that someone needs, esp in public, I’ve seen comm’s ignore and go call to question. Those sorts of tactics I would not do<br> + <br> + Bianci expressed your willingness to hear out opp, how would you characterize your ability to compromise on any issue whether res or actions, etc<br> + <br> + Ostrowski plenty of res where I’ve been here where I’d say pass but make changes. As public cant make amendments, this past eac in public some changes made some not. Ultimately have to look at all changes made, decide are you going to vote against despite compromises or for. I think I’m reasonable with compromises, don’t think I’ll have prb in that area<br> + <br> + Friedman clearly very persistent, seems like you’re very interested, wondering where that motivation comes from.<br> + <br> + Ostrow started Christian slate goal was to take over asucd single handedly, still desire to fulfill that goal. Persistence continues even to this day, someone of third party my obligation to keep on going. Sometimes I offend ppl in both slates, think it’s because there was a vacuum there and I needed to fill in with my time and energy. My obligation as person in control of a slate to continue and advance these ideas. Lot of ppl who feel same way don’t become involved, therefore not heard.<br> + <br> + Savaree-Ruess seems your rep precedes you, don’t want to assume anyone would treat you w/less respect but if comm. Unable to work effectively with you bc your plans of domination, how do you plan to go about diffusing that situation and be accepted by comm.<br> + <br> + The person who eventually becomes vice chair going to have to work with ppl in that commission, have an agreeable attitude. No one vice chair going to be overly antagonistic. Impo to make noise but not be overly antagonistic, don’t think I have a record of being antagonistic to specifically eac. Other than lay, not very familiar with others in eac so clean slate as far as I’;m concerned. Should work well with those guys.<br> + <br> + Roy this big step for you, having a vote in case of absence. As you stated, aiming to be vice chair of this commission, this vote big step for your asucd career. If you were to have a vote, would you vote like luke skywalker or darth vader?<br> + <br> + Ostrowski suppose would depend on definition of empire (slate in control LEAD or other groups etc) when I was at EAC I was dressed as vader to do canned food drive thing. My politics more on empire side, most likely on darth vader side.<br> + <br> + Peake reservations about him. Had some problems communicating, asked him a question, and he mocked me. I think that’s exactly why we should not confirm him, ppl in here should have goals of working with and for association, not for themselves. Esp respectful in this room, willing to work with ppl and association<br> + <br> + DO CONFIRM, 7-6-0, STEVEN OSTROWSKI, EAC<br> + <br> + Amaha motion confirm chief justice of court<br> + <br> + Tim Cody on court since end of fall qtr last year<br> + <br> + Peake great apps, Tim Cody by far has great plan for court, wants to strengthen ties between ASUCD and court<br> + <br> + Markevich wjat are your plans for next couple years<br> + <br> + Cody thought lot of things court needs to work on, some things stretnthened. One of big goals is inc communication between other branches, usually meetings just us and mikalonis. Seems to other members that we’re not getting much done, only public view is during hearing. Maybe start filling in rest of bdy as to what we’re doing, maybe try to get senators and chairs to our meetings. Easier way to access our previous opinions, SGAO most part, like us to have them on our own so we can see precedents ourselves.<br> + <br> + Friedman what do you believe role of court in association?<br> + <br> + Court there for purpose of area in bylaws that doesn’t make sense, leads to dispute, there to draw on both documents to figure out how to fix. Other duty if someone doesn’t do their job to receive this complaint, make an order for that person to complete. Feel should not step out of bounds, issues need be brought to us<br> + <br> + Harms hopefully soon court will have new justices confirmed, ppl on court never heard a case before, maybe never read codes etc. how do you plan to ensure justices are trained<br> + <br> + Cody according to rules/procedures not really my job, technically govt advisor should set up meeting with asucd attorney.. never happened with me might not with me. Impo before someone hears case be very familiar with bylaws and codes, encourage them to read and be familiar.<br> + <br> + Powers what’s your opinion on judicial review w/in asucd. Talked about court rectifying issues, how do you see judicial review comes into that, think court is final word…<br> + <br> + Cody each branch has ability to interpret constitution, but it states clearly court has final word. While others should look and read, believe court’s responsibility to issue final ruling<br> + <br> + Powers would you say that in const saying that court has final word, would you say bylaws also ties into court having final word<br> + <br> + Cody to an extent, senate has ability to change bylaws if needed. Even tho we weould technically have strong opinion, precedent on reading bylaws, senate can always change those<br> + <br> + DO CONFIRM, 12-0-0, TIM CODY<br> + <br> + Amaha motion move into ex officio reports<br> + <br> + EX-OFFICIO REPORTS<br> + <br> + Rivera, Cokely, Lay, Khan, Bianci, Benci-Woodward, Markevich, (Holloway’s and Savaree-Ruess’ included with minutes) Carnes<br> + <br> + OFFICER REPORTS<br> + <br> + Zamora motion seven minute break.<br> + <br> + Ajlouny object for ten minute break.<br> + <br> + Be back 7:08<br> + <br> + RECESS<br> + <br> + QUORUM ROLL CALL<br> + <br> + Zamora, Deepak, Xie, Fluet, Rosas-Romero,<br> + <br> + Amaha motion suspend orders, go into appt<br> + <br> + APPOINTMENTS AND CONFIRMATIONS<br> + <br> + Amaha motion any members EPPC<br> + <br> + Shilpa Banik<br> + <br> + Benci-Woodward she’s awesome, look forward to working with her.<br> + <br> + Deepak what direction do you want to take EPPC in<br> + <br> + Banik spread more awareness about what UCD students can do to contribute to what we’re trying to do<br> + <br> + Zamora how did you hear about ASUCD and what brought you to EPPC in particular<br> + <br> + Banik looking for job on ASUCD website, saw EPPC looking for more members.<br> + <br> + DO CONFIRM, 12-0-0, SHILPA BANIK, ENVIRONMENTAL POLICY AND PLANNING COMMISSION<br> + <br> + Amaha resume orders day, officer reports<br> + <br> + OFFICER REPORTS<br> + <br> + Amaha, Harris, Molnar, Frick, Peake, Friedman, Ajlouny<br> + <br> + Media Board Rep: Xie<br> + <br> + Internet Networking Committee Rep: Zamora<br> + <br> + CONSIDERATION OF OLD<br> + <br> + Amaha SB 38<br> + <br> + Molnar object, want to approve past meetings minutes, withdraw<br> + <br> + SB 38<br> + <br> + Author<br> + <br> + Laabs tried to introduce several times, basically takes bad section of bylaws on ballot measures and recalls. Normally when I try to do this, just repairs, but organization so bad I rewrote it so people can understand it. People doing ballot measures should understand the process to do it. Everything was out of order, this is attempt to simplify it.<br> + <br> + Peake did you change any of the content or just reorganized<br> + <br> + Laab lengthened amount of time from 2 weeks to four weeks for collecting signatures. All of you ran for Senate, imagine one thousand signatures. Also made it easier to combine measures onto regular elections to save money<br> + <br> + Comm Recc<br> + <br> + Powers really took close look at this bill, somewhat intimidated when three pages of new text. Section G where lengthened from three to six days, one thing we really recommended. If we used same formula for day per 32… signatures, would take 47 days. Seems reasonable for amount of signatures needed to be verified, should have ample time to do that. Read over it to make sure it’s clear. Abstentions due to absence<br> + <br> + Public<br> + <br> + Molnar when are you going to erect a constitutional amendment about this?<br> + <br> + Friedman I wrote it, emailed it to Laabs. Will be introduced next week.<br> + <br> + Mikalonis looked over this in IAC, one thing that confused me. Lines 52 and 53 is clear. Lines 64 is SGAO going to have to check these names…<br> + <br> + Rivera line 56<br> + <br> + Peake don’t want to make it easier for me to be recalled, but I see no reason to not pass this. Motion move into senate discuss<br> + <br> + Friedman would like to hear from elections committee<br> + <br> + Peake withdraw<br> + <br> + Flick last time I peaked at bylaws, I was extremely confused and going to propose that somebody fix them. Rare we’re going to have this, but this makes it much easier for me as committee member.<br> + <br> + Peake contention on promise that Brent Laabs will not recall me, move into senate discuss<br> + <br> + Senate Discussion<br> + <br> + Friedman I will be introducing CA, right now thinking lowering it to one thousand signatures needed to recall someone rather than eight percent. Eight percent is some nineteen hundred people, huge task to achieve. Think thousand represents good share of population, five percent has been recommended, just want to throw that out. Has the election committee ever seen a recall or inititative, has there been a problem verifying the names<br> + <br> + Flick don’t think we’ve seen them, we verify twenty five percent of one hundred twenty five signatures, reasonable to see this shared among people to get them verified. Doable definitely within six days.<br> + <br> + Harris curious about passing a bill without making amendments first<br> + <br> + Molnar wondering why we can do this without making CA for 8 percent, or will CA change bylaws and constitution<br> + <br> + Laabs constitution automatically overrides bylaws, but we will have to go back to change later. Should be quick and easy. About recall coming up, apparently never been recall since Mark Champagne worked here, some got close, got Ackerman to resign, not really come up before. Either you’re doing a good job or no one cares. Hopefully the former.<br> + <br> + Frick do you have to explain to people when you’re getting these signatures? What all do you have to explain, takes a lot of time?<br> + <br> + Laabs oart of time extension, it’s on paperwork, but yeah you’ll have to explain what they’re signing like in elections.<br> + <br> + Deepak does cA have to be made before the elections? We have to submit a CA, so essentially that’s necessary before election. Two weeks. Brilliant plan, call to question.<br> + <br> + DO CONFIRM, 12-0-0, SB 38<br> + <br> + OTHER BUSINESS<br> + <br> + Amaha motion approve past meeting’s minutes as amended.<br> + <br> + PUBLIC DISCUSSION<br> + <br> + Zamora whole CFC apps, another way to get involved with ASUCD in another way, if you didn’t know we give them a grant to give out that money, so sitting on board you decide how money is allocated. I planned on doing it, maybe after senate if anyone else wants to do it with me…<br> + <br> + Markevich regarding EAC confirmation earlier, I heard a lot of people talking about how Mr. Ostrowski becoming part of this association or working with this association. Want to say every student who pays his/her fees is a member of this association, we often lose sight of that. That said, he spends as much time as many of us on this floor, writing/supporting legislation, think he was obviously qualified for this position. Thank madam vice president, disappointed tie-breaking vote necessary<br> + <br> + Xie want sign up sheet for table tomorrow. Didn’t vote for Ostrowski, doesn’t want anyone who will print my picture on internet and distributeTotally improper to have someone represent students<br> + <br> + Calpirg believe special interest money dominates politics to hurt regular people, holding meeting next week, watch movie about all the money lobbied in congress and then same people take advantage of conflict in Iraq. Also interested in group in general, sign up here.<br> + <br> + Carnes forgot to mention, had meeting about Speed Mixer Event. Wanted to commend George for being open minded, making it more inclusive event. Made possibilities more endless, find a date, find a friend, etc. Remind you turn in pro/con statements with leg. Also remind you we have checks and balances in ASUCD for ASUCD officials, if anyone not happy with performance of anyone employee of ASUCD, that person can be removed if deem necessary.<br> + <br> + Friedman one that said about association, I meant student government. Miss Fluet I would hope you might bring up that tailgating issue with athletics director, mentioned we were meeting tomorrow.<br> + <br> + Ajlouny Held office hours in library, in front of stairs and asked people if I could move table in front of stairs and had big poster. Had over two hundred people ask me things, half of them I could not answer. Gave them my logic from my experiences. Held over fifteen hours of office this week. I don’t mind people voicing different opinions, when someone disagrees with what you think doesn’t mean you start shouting out. I felt disrespected when I was trying to say something good about Ostrowski, have someone shout out. Show respect.<br> + <br> + Deepak talking about student fees, found out few senators not part of Cal Pirg. You should register with that, it works WITH us. I’ll work on you guys later. I think we should all just respect each other, everyone has right to opinions.<br> + <br> + Peake voted way I did, explained it, nothing more to say.<br> + <br> + Laabs lobby corp got first release in yahoo news, agree with pete all people who pay dues are full members. Some members don’t get to vote in elections, all asucd members should have right to serve as officials. But some members actually don’t, and that’s bullshit<br> + <br> + Mikalonis I think at least one senator has not announced where they’re holding senate hours next week, think they need to do that to follow new bylaws.<br> + <br> + Zamora motion to adjourn. 8:03</span> </td> </tr> </table> </div>
