Who represents you?

[nggallery id=5]This fall semester City College students can expect to see some new and familiar faces on the Associated Student Government board. The Express sat down with these student-leaders to find out who’s running our campus, what qualifications they bring to the proverbial table and what their goals are for the upcoming months.

Former ASG secretary Renee Worley said her past experience allowed her to become familiar with the parliamentary procedures of student government and she also brings her management skills from her job outside City College.

“I’m a manager at my job and I feel like I’m a natural born leader,” Worley said. “I would like [ASG] to have a little more presence on campus so people actually know who we are and what we’re doing with your [student representation fees] and what we’re going to do for the students.”

Worley has made new changes since taking office: reinstatement of the “three meetings rule,” which was removed last spring semester.

“If anyone wants to join the board it is required to attend three ASG meetings before being appointed…” Worley said. “I do like to see that commitment from people because student government is serious.”

City College is the “greenest” of all four Los Rios District community colleges, Worley said. She has plans in the works to keep City College’s title alive, including properly labeling recycle bins, making them more “user friendly” and finding out if City College receives money from the current recycle bins.

With 20 years experience of accounting and bookkeeping, Jessie O’Keefe is the new ASG treasurer.

“I was around last year and I met the whole board and I really enjoyed the camaraderie…,” O’Keefe said. “I believe this year things are going to run smoother because we’ve learned a lot from last year.”

O’Keefe’s semester goal is to keep everything as simple as possible when it comes to the ASG budget.

“A little bit more laymen’s terms for everybody to know exactly where the budget’s at and to keep [the board] informed at all times so they know what monies they can spend and what they can’t,” O’Keefe said.

Bringing her experience as public relations officer for the City College Indigenous Peoples club and also a member of the Phi Theta Kappa honors society on campus, Emma Snuggs said her goal this semester is to put the community back into community college.

“I was the public relations officer for Indigenous Peoples for the year prior to this school year. I also have done a lot of work with outside organizations and I’ve done public relations work all my life…” Snuggs said. “I firmly believe in education and I firmly believe in community…”

Former ASG commissioner of public relations, turned vice president last spring semester, Justin Turner, returns this fall for another term as vice president.

“I wanted to come back and bring my experience,” Turner said. “We do have a bigger board with so much involvement and lots of motivated people.”

Turner is also a communications officer for the Student Senate for California Community Colleges and said he wants to make changes on a state level as well as locally.

“I just want to make sure the students’ voices are heard,” Turner said. “We’re a lot stronger as a region than just as a community college.”

A native New Yorker, Maszaba Carter has held positions of leadership outside City College.

“As Inter-Club Council president, my position also has a lot to do with the events that occur on campus. And that’s one of the things that is going to become more prevalent in future semesters,” Carter said.
Carter encourages all clubs on campus to participate in City College special events to come.

“We have Welcome Day on Thursday the 9th [of Sept.] that we’re working towards,” Carter said. “Our first big club day event is going to be Constitution Day and then of course we have Club Day. Constitution Day is on the 16th [of Sept.] and Club Day is on the 23rd of this month.”

Other positions:

Chief Justice: D. Del Toro
Secretary: Kaylyn Gardner
Commissioner of Legislative Affairs: Ruben Moody
Commissioner of Student Affairs: Richard Ragudo
Commissioner of Technology: Jamie Openshaw
Commissioner of Environmental Affairs–Rubie Simonsen (new position created this semester)
