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.

CCSU’s Vance Hall and eight Finance Committee recommendations were discussed at last week’s lengthy SGA meeting.
Dr. Laura Tordenti, the vice president of Student Affairs and Dr. Richard Bachoo, the chief administrative officer, spoke during the student affairs report about the recent decision to put the Vance renovations on hold.
“We just can’t afford to do the whole building this summer,” Tordenti said. “We don’t have the money. We would do the whole building if we could.”

“When I take on a task, I don’t just try to fulfill responsibilities. I try to improve upon them and find new ways that we can affect people,” says Brian Choplick, a candidate for next year’s President of the Student Government Association.
Choplick, a resident senator, tranfserred over to CCSU in the fall and is currently a Resident Assistant (RA) in Sheridan. Choplick is also a part of the Finance Committee, co-chair on the Internal Affairs Committee, and chair of Club Sports.
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.
Student Government Association President Eric Bergenn said he hopes that senators will take on bigger roles this year after four senators stepped down last semester.
Senators may have varying opinions on whether or not the SGA meetings are being conducted properly, but, according to SGA President Eric Bergenn, they are still getting things done.
