Slate abstains from debate

Members of The People slate answered questions about campus safety and group affiliations at Tuesday night’s election debate sponsored by the Pre-Law Association, while the Connection Slate opted not to participate. Following candidate questions, most of the forum focused on Senate Bill 5-B, which would eliminate the use of student fees to fund the Daily Lobo. Sen. Steve Aguilar, vice-presidential candidate for the Connection slate, said he and members of his slate did not participate because they did not agree with who the panelists were or the atmosphere of the debate. He said Tuesday night’s audience was not as diverse as it would have been had the ASUNM Election Commission organized the event.
