Barski’s conflict of interest?

By Name withheld

Editor, the Gauntlet,

As a concerned student I have been extremely worried about the upcoming Students’ Union election.

One issue I am concerned about is the sponsoring of slates by companies. In particular, Barski’s Cabinet has made it evident they are being sponsored by an online company that provides services similar to the Students’ Union, namely buying and selling used textbooks. By promoting such a website, Barski’s Cabinet is supporting a competitor of the Students’ Union. This conflicts with the responsibilities of potential student representatives.

Candidates in a Students’ Union election should be looking out for the best interests of the students and not private companies.

So I urge all students: don’t vote Barski’s Cabinet!
