Conservative students attack MSA’s policies
Oct. 31, 1985 – Due to the Michigan Student Assembly’s resolution to support demonstrations against Vice President Bush, a growing number of conservative students have attacked the student government for ignoring the range of student opinions on campus.
Recently, conservative students who have criticized MSA have begun a small-scale campaign with posters to encourage students to revoke their mandatory $5.07 per term fee for MSA. The poster mocked an earlier one protesting Bush’s recent campus visit.
“We started this thing as a joke, but everyone else took it seriously,” said LSA senior Jeff Evans, who along with Engineering junior Mike Davidson began distributing the poster last week.
LSA senior Bill Clemons, who also lambasted MSA in an assembly meeting Tuesday, said he hopes to rally opposition against the student government.
“I feel that MSA has completely abused its power as the student body representative,” he said.
