A Catalyst For Change?

I am writing to you concerning the recent resignation of CSU VP Sustainability & Promotions Morgan Pudwell.

As a current CSU councillor, I have had the pleasure of working with Morgan this past year and can say without hesitation that she represented a model of commitment and dedication to students’ interests (something the rest of the CSU executive could take a lesson from).

As such, it is sad to see her go. While I wish it weren’t true, the description of the current state of affairs of our union found in her resignation letter is a clear and accurate picture.

Numerous councillors, myself included, can confirm having had experiences similar to those described by Morgan with respect to the operations of our union.

I would like to commend Morgan for her courage in speaking up about these issues and sincerely hope that her actions serve as a catalyst for change. As for Morgan, may she succeed in all her future endeavours.

—Michaela Manson,
ASFA Councillor
