Florida Blue Key has worked hard to tap young leaders that will undoubtedly hold high office, everything from the the U.S. political circuit to lofty posts in the private sector. But why would FBK tap a secretary. Glenda isn't just any secretary, she's very good at what she does, and this blog will not question the virtual fact that Glenda is loved by numerous students and alums.
Still, the question stands: is Glenda playing favorites in Student Government? And if so, what remedy exists? When the top leader of the Independent community at UF publicly states that the SG Secretary is "destructive" this should be grounds for alarm across campus and certainly merits both our attention, as well as that of the UF Administration. I mean we're not talking some random nobody like Jimmy Carlssen, we're talking about the top Independent leader on campus, Sam Miorelli.
The Orange & Blue Party is really shaking up the status quo! From fighting for online voting, courageously bringing Articles of Impeachment against Student Body Treasurer Paul Drayton, to now (perhaps) taking on the all-to-often-ignored issue of Glenda Frederick and her direct role in the Student Senate.
Question to the readers from TheRadikal.com: "how exactly does Glenda's work in senate, differ from Kim Cruts work when she handled the PR for SG? Why are students expected to lead SG and balance the $13 million budget but it's [allegedly] apparent no student could match Glenda's minutes-taking ability.
I fear that the same System logic that keeps Glenda on year after year, is synonymous with the reasoning behind "intranet voting" and the legitimacy of the "Student Body Treasurers ruling by proxy."
