The panel discussed the events of the prior night’s final Student Government Board public meeting of the semester, in which several students made clear their desire for a more transparant Board. Moving from discussions on the Druids and their role in Student Government Board, the current mega slate and sister slate system, Chairman Gish’s proposals to change the Student Government Board Elections Code, and the Board’s new media policies.
