To the Editor:
My name is Matthew Hubbard, and I am a candidate for Senior Class President. I recognize that statements have been issued publicly against me in regards to a misappropriation of student fees to fund my own campaign. While I have nothing acrimonious to say against either of my opponents, I wish to put those claims to rest.
It was stated in a Letter to the Editor last week that I was caught in the office making use of student activity funds to print and hang flyers for my campaign. This accusation was made in complete assumption and holds no fiber of truth.
To the Editor,
At 12:00 AM October 1st the Federal Government “shut down”. The federal Government’s fiscal year runs from October 1st to September 30th, and this year Congress could not agree on a budget, primarily due to the partisan divide on the issue of Obamacare. With no budget for the next fiscal year, federally run programs and jobs have been halted. House Republicans insist on passing any new spending bill that includes provisions to defund, derail or otherwise chip away at Obamacare. Senate Democrats are just as insistent that the spending bill will not.
To Those Who Are Responsible for Kaiser Bubble Vandalism:
There were plenty of members of our CCSU community partaking in mischief on Halloween night. For the most part, it is all in good fun and no one gets hurt. However, Thursday morning’s heinous act of vandalism crossed the line in the sand. Destroying the Kaiser Bubble offsets the incredible amount of effort the administration at CCSU has been taking to get that annex back on-line for the students. And now you’ve set fire to your own living room. Hundreds, if not thousands of students have been patiently waiting to use the bubble for recreational sports, including many of the club sports teams we all love and are so proud of. That is an area that many of your friends and neighbors spend most of their free time in, and it cannot be replaced.
I’d like to respond to the Editorial about ‘Locked Doors’ over the Labor Day weekend on behalf of Student Center Operations and Central Reservations Office. Thank you for the feedback! We try hard to be open
Though I know I could tell him in person or write him a WhatsApp message to express how much appreciation I have for him as editor-in-chief ofThe Recorder and as a journalist in general, I know that The Recorder is his baby and this being his last issue, he will hold on to this issue for the rest of his life and cherish it, which means my gratitude will go unforgotten.
I began writing for The Recorder in spring 2009, the first semester that I was a matriculating student at CCSU. I knew the current editor-in-chief, Michael Walsh, as well as the sports editor at the time from my side job at the Hartford Wolfpack. Having familiar faces in the newsroom when I nervously attended my first couple of meetings was very nice, and I am grateful that I had that comfort zone when beginning to write for a newspaper, something I had never done before.
Recently, a student posted an editorial on how the SGA is a sham. This just goes to the show the ignorance that this current student body has on the SGA. Students today feel that the SGA is just a popularity contest. They feel its just about faces on flyers, but it is much, much more than that.
The SGA makes student clubs and organizations run. SGA lends their support to these organizations, funding them, sponsoring activities on campus. The SGA handles tuition money, so students better start caring and getting involved.
