GOSS: SRC Resignations, Hack Ghost, and The Latest From the USU
By Gossip Pulp
An inside source (the SRC Council agenda) has revealed that Yiting Feng (Co-Education Office Bearer, Panda) will be resigning her role and seat on council at the monthly SRC Council meeting next Wednesday evening. The role comes with a $12K annual stipend and is rumoured to be filled by Jingrui Xu (Panda). The resignation and election of a paid OB, coupled with a number of spicy motions, should make for an interesting council meeting.
Sorry, Who Are You?
A new twitter account calling itself “hack ghost” popped up this morning, delivering the news that Tom Manousaridis, (Unity) Yash Gurram, (Indie, Lib aligned) Cady Brown, (Liberal) and Nick Forbutt (NLS) will be running for USU. Congratulations to Hack Ghost for spilling the tea that anyone even vaguely associated with USyd student politics has been sipping at Courtyard for the past month. No word from Hack Ghost on who, if anyone, is running from Advance, Switch, Panda or Grassroots, though Burn Book reported a number of weeks ago that Ellie Stephenson is reportedly being considered by Grassroots as a potential candidate.
And just who is this budget Tea for Honi? We’re not entirely sure, but the only account that Hack Ghost has been interacting with belongs to one Anthony Segaert. Is it Anthony? Is it someone else? We await the identity of our new Ghostly Gossip Who with baited breath.
USU Bored Meeting
At this point we only go to these things for the free pastries, as most of what is the juicier news happens whilst the meeting is in camera. Today was no different, though Hengjie Sun was absent from the meeting as he is “delivering a quarterly financial report for his firm and cannot attend.” We’re unsure if the firm mentioned is Sun’s own company, but are very interested in finding out more. Hengjie’s apology was accepted, though Adam Torres (NLS), Claudia Gulbransen-Diaz (Unity) and Maya Eswaran (Grassroots) voted against. This is the third USU Board meeting that Hengjie has missed. Interesting!
