UO administration picks new ASUO President

11/10/2011 Update: The ODE reports the student leadership have agreed to a plan on the EMU referendum, which they will present to VP Holmes today.

11/9/2011:  The UO administration is going after ASUO President Ben Eckstein because he went to the OUS board and got them to agree that UO couldn’t sell bonds repaid with student money unless  students passed a referendum on the EMU renovation plans. He cancelled the referendum when VP Robin Holmes wouldn’t answer questions about how the money would be spent. Good for him.
