Unless they are running for president or treasurer then they can't really cause too much damage even if they do happen to catch on.  Plus, I don't know how you guys roll down there, but our SBA is not shy about booting people off of the executive board who fail to show up to meetings.  We strictly adhere to the attendance policy outlined in our consitution.  We've replaced about 4 or 5 cats this year.  So worst case scenario if they happen to become....Water Boy Representative or whatever and they never show up, then just give 'em the boot.  Now if they're talking about running for Prez or Treaz then that's a problem.  A political coup de gras may be in order if that's the case.

cui bono?

It's really not this person's attendance I'm worried about.  This person will probably be a "warm body".  The thing is this-  I have not sent out the letter calling for nominations  and 'splaining the positions/ voting process, etc  yet [will go out next week].  How the heck do you "know you wanna run" for something that you have no idea what the job entails?  This particular person has never approached any e-board member asking them about their position.  Never approached me and I know about all of 'em.   RIIIIIGHT.  This person's motivations are suspect.  And although I'm a 1L myself-  what the heck is up with a 1L talking 'bout "I wanna be prez of BLSA"-  ghet outta here!!!  And never on any committees -  ??? ::)    Neverdid anything but "take".   

Matter of fact-  I'm gonna ask each candidate for every position what their motivations for running are.  With this person here's the q:  "Oftentimes ppl run for a position in efforts to beef up their resume and it concerns me that you expressed wanting to run for a position before the letter was sent out detailing the duties/responsibilities of each position and as an e-board member in general, what are your motivations for running for a position in BLSA?   What research, if any, have you done regarding the position? [follow up q: what service have you provided to BLSA this year]?"   ;)

I think that would be an abuse of discretion--you are to administer the election fairly not run some Kathleen Harris type ish.  If you are mad at homeboy run against him.  in any event it really isn't that serious.

cui bono?

okay, thanks.  LOL @ Harris comment.  Nah, I have no personal issue with this person it's just that if you tell me thru your words and actions that you want a position just to put it on your resume and have done nothing to contribute to an organization that I personally put a lot into...that irks me a bit.  I was wondering if I had any duty to let that be known.

no your duty is to support whoever is running against him or run against him yourself--not playa hate.  Dang why does BLSA always bring out the inner Bonqueshas?  (lol lex)

I'm all for hating the game! Now, hating the game and Katherine Harris machinations are another story...totally agree with you there.

And the Barack Obama stuff (Biden, the Fox muslim school debacle) is showing clearly that white folks also have strong inner Bonqueshas!
