Concerned about CGC reps
By SCOTT BOLEJACK
Students going to the polls today will
elect a new student' body president,
Residence Hall Association president,
Carolina Athletic Association president
and Campus Governing Council
representatives for Districts 5 and 19.
Kevin Monroe and Hugh Reckshun are
candidates for student body president;
Mark Dalton and Henry Miles are in the
running for RHA president; Padraic Bax
ter and Debby Flowers face each other
for CAA president; and Lisa Gitelman,
Marcus Plescia and Steve Harris are vying
for the CGC seat in District 19.
In last Tuesday's voting none of the
candidates for RHA president, CAA
president or the CGC District 19 seat
received a majority of the votes, thereby
forcing run-offs for those offices.
Because of voting irregularities last
week at the Morrison Residence Hall
polling site, the race for student body
president will be a new election, not a
In the CGC District 5 race, two can
didates received votes, but both declined
their votes. A new election has been called
for the district, with only write-in candi
dates eligible for the seat.
The following polling sites will be open
to all students, regardless of voting dis
trict, from 10 a.m. to 7 p.m. today:

int against ogler
By CHARLES ELLMAKER k , ,
Surf Writer ?
Campus Governing Council member Dennis Bartels
(District 10) said Monday that he had decided not to pro
ceed with a complaint against CGC Speaker Bobby
Vogler. Bartels had said Thursday that he planned to file
a suit alleging that bills passed at the Jan. 25 CGC
meeting were invalid because Vogler was no longer a
member of the council.
The two referendum bills one prohibiting the fund
ing of "political" or "religious" programs, and the other
rewording a section of the Student Constitution con
cerning the student referendum initiative were passed
by the student body in the campus elections on Feb. 8.
Bartels said Thursday that he was not filing the com
plaint to stop the two referendums because he disagreed
with them, but because the bills were introduced by CGC
member Phil Painter (District 19) in the council.
"I felt I was insulting the students by not allowing
them to have their will expressed through the referen
dums," Bartels said Monday. "I felt I was lowering
myself to Phil's level.
"I still feel Phil Painter is acting dishonorably," he
said. "This is really politicizing the issues and taking
away their democratic freedom.
"I feel very sorry and guilty that I let my personal feel
ings get in the way of this," Bartels said.
Painter filed a similar suit against Vogler on Monday,
Feb. 7, to stop the referendum to increase the Student
Activity Fee by $1.25 per semester per student. Painter
charged that the referendum bill was invalid because by
moving out of his Granville Towers CGC district, Vogler
had broken the CGC bylaw concerning a member's resi
dent status and was therefore no longer a member.
If Vogler was not a member during the vote on the
referendum bill, then the bill was not valid because the
14-member quorum was not met, Painter charged.
The fee referendum bill was passed by the CGC Feb.
2, although Painter had attempted to kill the bill by
walking out of the meeting, breaking quorum and block
ing the vote. But quorum was met later that evening and
the bill passed unanimously.
Although students voted on that referendum in last
Tuesday's election, the Student Supreme Court placed a
restraining order on the ballot counting until after the
court rules on Painter's complaint. Student Supreme
Court Chief Justice J.B. Kelly said Monday that the
final hearing on the complaint would be held Wednesday.
A run-off election between Susan Gad-ily-
and. Patricia Wallace had been
scheduled for CGC District 16; but
because Gaddy has since withdrawn from
the race, Wallace will be certified as the
winner, Elections Board Chairman Stan
Evans said Monday.
To help prevent the voting ir
regularities that plagued last Tuesday's
election, Evans said students tending the
19 polling sites across campus today
would be better educated about voting
procedures. Elections Board members
also will supervise the polling sites more
closely, he said.
Last week, there were 510 ballots cast
at the Morrison site while only 173
signatures were recorded on the voter
"Worse than that problem, was the
fact that early-morning poll tenders at
Morrison were not marking them."
" Evans predicted a lower voter turnout
for the run-off, but he said he wasn't sure
how that would affect the outcome of the
Evans said he thought that many
students who voted for Reckshun in the
student body president race did so mainly
to make a statement, and were not really
in favor of abolishing Student Govern
ment. But many students may simply ask
themselves, "Why shouldn't I vote for
Hugh," he said.
To help speed tonight's vote counting,
the Elections Board has borrowed a
counter from Guilford County and also
has obtained some ballots left over from
Guilford county's November 1982 elec
tions, Evans said.
"So, basically, it's a free run-off elec
tion," he concluded.
Ballot miscounts may
1 i '
force CGC seat change
By CHARLES ELLMAKER
Because of a vote miscount in Morrison
Residence Hall during last Tuesday's
campus elections, the District 15 Campus
Governing Council race will probably be
"decertified," Elections Board Chairman
Stan Evans said Monday. .
Keith Bradhser, elected to the third
CGC seat in District 15 last week, pro
bably will be replaced by Brian Dalton
because of the miscount, Evans said. The
race will be made official when the Elec
tions Board meets next, he said.
Because part of the Morrison tally
sheet was misplaced during the counting
of the District 15 ballots last week, the
ballots for candidates Greg Hecht, Brian
Dalton and Joel Houston were not in
cluded in the final tally.
"I don't know how it happened,"
Evans said. "It appears that somewhere
the Morrison tally sheet was stuck away
Evans discovered the mistake Sunday
night when he was rechecking the tallies
for the District 15 candidates. His action
was prompted by a complaint from
Dalton to the Student Supreme Court,'
charging that polling irregularities could
have had an effect on the outcome of the
Evans said he realized something was
wrong when the returns from Morrison
showed that Dalton has more votes from
the Morrison box than he had received in
the entire election.
When the votes were recounted, the
tally showed that Dalton had received 517
votes rather than 241, Hecht had received
523 rather than 276 and Houston had
received 135 rather than 93.
Bradsher's 339 votes remained the
same, placing Dalton ahead of him by
about 180 votes. Incumbent James Exum
remained the leader with 613.
Although each of the candidates had
signed a statement early Wednesday after
the election agreeing not to call for a new
election, Dalton later filed a complaint
with the Student Supreme Court stating
that the polling irregularities could have
had an effect on the selection of the third
candidate. Bradsher had organized the
signing of the release.
In the original count, there were only
35 votes separating Hecht and Dalton,
although none of the candidates knew the
tally at the time they signed the releaes.
Dalton said he would not have signed
the release if he had known how close he
was to winning the third seat from
District 15. When he later learned that he
had received more votes than Bradsher,
Dalton withdrew his complaint.
But Bradsher said that Dalton should
not have filed the complaint at all.
"I believe that Brian was breaking the
petition that we signed and gave to the
Supreme Court," Bradsher said. "I think
we would have a dishonest representative
(if Dalton is put in office)."
But Hecht said that, although he did
not agree with Daiton's filing for a rcr
vote, he was glad that the action had
brought out the actual results;
"We never agreed that we would abide
by the results if it was discovered that
there was a tallying error," Hecht said.
"What resulted was right and just."

Problems with the effectiveness of the chancellor's
committees led to a recent letter from Vandenbergh
to Fordham that raised concerns about the commit

chancellor and vice chancellor committees has been
disappointing," Vandenbergh's letter read. "As a
result, many students are skeptical about the role of
the committees in providing student involvement in
Concerns raised by Vandenbergh included com
mittees being by-passed on issues of great importance
and a lack of time given to committee members for
review of proposals.
"After years of careful study, the FSAC (Food
Service Advisory Committee) was presented with a
major, $5 million proposal last March," the letter
stated. "Committee members received the proposal
as they entered the room, yet were forced to vote at
the same meeting." ,
Student participation on the committees is also a
problem, Vandenbergh said. Because of a lack of in
