SocialTwist Tell-a-Friend

Take a stand, UISG

In a Daily Iowan April 1 front-page article, University of Iowa Student Government Vice President J.D. Moran argued that he and his fellow UISG executives have failed to state an opinion on the 21-ordinance because this is a divisive issue.

That being said, it is your duty as leaders of our students to at least take a stand on the issue. UI students elected you to be our voice, not to stay silent. Imagine if President Obama failed to publicly state his position on the recent health-care legislation because the country is split 50/50.

Being elected to serve as a UISG executive is not simply a ceremonial position and something to put on your résumé. With such a position comes great power and the ability to wield that power for the good of current and future UI students. You were elected to get in the game and lead, not stand on the sidelines and fidget.

Stop worrying about making the wrong move and focus instead on choosing a path and walking your chosen road. I implore the UISG executives to use their power, take a stand, and serve the voice of the students.

That is what you were elected to be, correct?

UI graduate student
