"I’m kinda amused at the firestorm my Glenda word-association created. I used the word “destructive” for a very specific reason: Glenda has been reported to me by reliable sources within SG to have on at least one occasion remarked over lunch to others on SG staff and students that in her words I am “the most destructive person I have ever encountered in SG.” Thus I thought it fitting to return the “destructive” title to her in my Q&A.
But I do not say this cavalierly. I believe quite sincerely that Glenda misunderstands her job in SG. She sees herself as something of an institution within the organization, and thus interjects herself regularly into policy debates. This is wholly inappropriate.
Her job is to manage the significant paperwork and scheduling issues that the Student Senate’s very nature creates as well as to provide assistance in other areas of SG as necessary (and presumably delegated by Sandy Vernon, the SG Office Manager). This means she must be an impartial observer of policy, not a commentator on policy discussions."
