Morgan, SRA presi¬ dent. by Melissa Muse News Editor A majority of the Student Representative Assembly is displeased that Judith A. Morgan became their president again eight days after she tenured her resignation. Morgan typed a resignation let¬ ter at approximately 4:20 p.m. Tuesday, Feb. 27. Morgan said she recanted the letter approx¬ imately two minutes later. Morgan said she had been A Chinese man demonstrates in China's Tiananmen Square, in part of a photo taken by Jim Gallow, Atlanta Journal Constitution. The photo is part of a library exhibit that opened yesterday and will con¬ tinue until Friday, April 6. working all weekend and was ex¬ hausted and frustrated when an SRA member snapped that she was "just another student," dur¬ ing an argument in the SRA of¬ fice. Morgan then typed the letter and gave it to SRA members who were in the office. "It was a mistake," Morgan later said. After she realized this, Morgan said she removed the let¬ ter from the office, tore it up, threw it away, and told Michael Flores, who was then treasurer, and Douglas Jenkins, who was then parliamentarian, that the letter was a mistake written in a moment of anger. However, Flores called an "emergency executive committee meeting," which wis held approx¬ imately 40 minutes later. According to a written SRA ex¬ planation of Morgan's resigna¬ tion, her letter was accepted and validated during the executive committee meeting. Jenkins, however, says the resignation was accepted the minute it was written. Morgan disagreed with both the executive committee and Jenkins. She claimed her resigna¬ tion could not be accepted by any means except assembly ratifica¬ tion. Morgan attended the Feb. 28 meeting (the day after her resignation) and remained silent. During that meeting Flores and Jenkins became the new presi¬ dent and vice president. Morgan went to the March 7 meeting with a demand: for the assembly to either accept or not accept her resignation. Morgan's argument was writ¬ ten and passed out to SRA members and guests. She claimed the executive committee had violated the SRA's bylaws by not notifying all members, by not calling the emergency executive committee meeting at least 72 hours in advance, and by acting to accept her resignation rather than making a recommendation Michael Flores, SRA vice presi¬ dent, served as ,SRA president for eight days. to the assembly as a whole. "I am willing to live with the mistake 1 made. " said Morgan. However, the resignation "should have been put toa vote—that's all I want. " Some representatives, however, did not want to vote on the issue. Jenkins responded to Morgan's argument by saying that the assembly's constitution and by¬ laws, and Robert's Rules of "/ think ue are playing petty politivs here." —Michael Flores SRA vice president Order, did not address resigna¬ tions or emergency executive committee meetings so as of¬ ficers, they had to make a judge¬ ment call. Flores responded to an argu¬ ment by Morgan that he pounced on the opportunity to become president, by saying that he wanted the position next year—not in the middle of the semester. "1 am now inundated with stuff thai was just dropped," he said. He added, "I thinit we are play¬ ing petty politics liere. "Now we have the apparatus.
