Students call for impeachment of USG president

first_imgTijani wrote that she felt “vehemently uncomfortable” with Fritz and USG Vice President Rose Ritch, retaining their posts and that stepping down would be more beneficial than attempting to ‘make amends’ with the Black student body. “I have seen you insert yourself into spaces on campus that are working to dismantle the deeply-rooted racism that seeps into every corner of our campus, and I have also witnessed USG release cosmetic, almost farcical statements of allyship and commitments to do better,” Tijani wrote. “You are the face of USG and it is your duty to uphold the mission and values of the organization even — and perhaps especially — when you are ‘off-duty.’” This article was updated June 26 at 10:20 p.m. to identify the creator of the petition. USG senators are deliberating whether impeachment proceedings will take place, a statement published on USG’s Instagram story read. Students were encouraged to contact Chief Diversity Officer Vivian Ren to share experiences or concerns regarding the student government.  In the Instagram statement, Fritz asked for students to call him out and educate him by sharing their experiences, stating that he will listen to them.  This article was updated June 27 at 4:15 p.m. to include the petition creator’s response to the president’s statement, add further context to the current president’s term and reflect the current signature count. “I would argue in saying I’m really not trying to defend myself, I’m not trying to make excuses for my actions,” said Fritz in an interview with the Daily Trojan. “I’m not trying to redirect the blame of the burden that I have to bear. And I’m trying to find the solution too — I’m not just saying, ‘OK, forget the past, it’s over.’ I’m really focused on finding an amicable resolution to this entire thing and again I really want to be part of the solution that we find, not only as a student government, as a presidency, but also as an entire community to everything that our students of color face.” This article was updated June 26 at 9:45 p.m. to include a statement from the Undergraduate Student Government. Tijani criticized Fritz’s establishment of an educational program and book club within the USG Executive Cabinet, as she wrote she feels he is not equipped to lead anti-racism initiatives. Tijani added that Fritz’s calls for students of color to educate him further burden them, and he should have the tools and resources to research social justice issues himself.  In the interview, Fritz acknowledged he has to hold himself accountable for his actions, whether or not he can recall them, as they negatively impacted the campus community and student body.  Following Fritz’s Instagram statement, Tijani posted screenshots of a second email addressed to him, writing that the president deliberately ignored her email and instead opted for a vague PR statement that lacked concrete acknowledgement of the issues raised by Black students and students of color. “I know I am part of the system,” he wrote. “I know it will be a heavy lift, but I am driven to be better. I will make mistakes because I am not perfect. I am calling on everyone, including myself, to keep me accountable. I have always tried to be intentional in how I engage in allyship, and I ask for others to help as I educate myself.” In a statement on Instagram, Fritz did not address calls for his impeachment but instead wrote that he recognized he is a “person of privilege.” Fritz added it is “not the time for white people to defend themselves” and apologized to the people who came forward with allegations of his racist acts.  As of publication, two posts allege that Fritz tried to garner more votes from Black students by asking them to talk to “their people.” Two more posts outlined how Fritz’s jokes about students of color and his grouping of them into a monolith has made people uncomfortable. One of these posts stated that the president joked about the “pains of being white.” A petition calling for Undergraduate Student Government President Truman Fritz’s impeachment began circulating Friday following the publication of several posts on Instagram account @black_at_usc claiming that he engaged in racial misconduct and microaggressive behavior toward Black students. The petition has accrued 994 signatures to date. According to USG bylaws, an undergraduate student may file a complaint against the president with the Speaker of the Senate, Gabe Savage. The complaint must outline specific violations of the USG constitution, bylaws or code of ethics.  From there, the speaker notifies the president, and the Senate must vote within 10 academic days whether to proceed with disciplinary action by a two-thirds majority. If Fritz is voted to be impeached, the Senate will then vote to remove him from office by a five-sixths majority. center_img This article was updated June 27 at 2:05 p.m. to reflect the current signature count. “To me, this means that you have chosen to protect your privilege under the guise of flowery diction and conciliatory promises to ‘do better,’ … your statement fails to demonstrate that you even know, let alone understand, which of your past actions have caused the damage that you are now so desperately trying to triage,” Tijani wrote. The email also stated that no Black student worked on Fritz’s presidential campaign and that the president chose not to amplify the voices of Black students before the resurgence of the Black Lives Matter movement and nationwide protests, indicating that anti-racism advocacy is not a priority for him. Tijani stated she contacted the USG Senate to accelerate the impeachment process. The Black Student Assembly will not be making any statements or calls of action without speaking with the Black undergraduate student community, BSA Co-director Jaya Hinton said in a message to the Daily Trojan. “The three directors believe that because Truman has been working very closely with us and providing the resources we’ve needed in our recent advocacy efforts, that we have the chance to educate him and help him grow rather than dismiss him immediately,” the message read. “However, we will consult with our community and ultimately decide on what is best and most aligns with our majority.” “I do take responsibility for the fact that these people did feel like they needed to voice up and they feel like they needed to make sure that their experience was heard and acknowledged and that I responded to it, and I really do apologize that they went through something like that and that I helped perpetuate the microaggressions and systemic racism that we see every day,” Fritz said. “I don’t want to be part of that.” “You are not our gatekeeper, and we are not asking for your permission to speak our minds,” Tijani wrote. “Further, we are not accepting your ‘invitation’ to educate you on how you might become a more empathetic, morally upright leader and human being. Again, all the resources and information are out there … they just have not been laid conveniently at your feet in a way that is digestible for you.” In her second email, Tijani listed several potential bylaw violations that she believes USG should examine, including requirements that the president and the vice president maintain a strong relationship with the student body, citing the increasing traction on her petition as reasoning that the relationship is tenuous.  Since the beginning of their election, Fritz and Ritch have faced various allegations against their presidency, including violating USG’s Election’s Code by mass and spam messaging potential voters. In mid-April, they also amended bylaws that would have eliminated stipends of assistant directors of funding, communications and programming branches departments while increasing the salary of higher USG officials including the president and vice president. The bylaws have since been amended to reinstate annual stipends for assistant directors. “My eyes, and the eyes of the entire student body, are on you Truman,” she wrote. Shaylee Navarro and Raymond Rapada contributed to this report. Abeer Tijani, a rising senior majoring in global health who created the petition, posted screenshots of her email to Fritz calling for him to step down from his position, contending that a true commitment to dismantling racism on campus would lead him to look within himself and acknowledge the need for new USG leadership. Fritz also stated that he is reavowing his commitment to equity at USC, announcing a series of conversations with cultural organizations about what Black and Indigenous students and students of color need to succeed, an internal educational program and book club with the USG Executive Cabinet and the creation of a broader coalition of student organizations to support diversity, equity and inclusion initiatives. “In this instance, anti-racism requires taking the first step in dismantling the system that you actively benefit from and help to maintain,” Tijani wrote. “Ask yourself: if I choose to keep this post, am I doing it with a commitment to anti-racism in mind? Or is it for the prestige, the privilege, or your pride?”last_img read more

Brainstorming A New Oceanic Bridge

first_imgPhoto and story by Joseph SapiaAll ideas are on the table as the county seeks the public’s views on how to deal with the deteriorating 77-year-old Ocean Bridge, spanning the Navesink River between Rumson and Middletown.Overhaul it or build a new bridge? If a new bridge is built, should it be built in the same footprint? Should it be a low, movable bridge like the current one or a fixed, high span?What do motorists, boaters, bicyclists, walkers, those with a view have to say? Should people be allowed to fish off the bridge?“The most important thing is people fill out those (Monmouth County) surveys,” said Todd Thompson, president of the Friends of the Oceanic Bridge. “We’re back to square one.”The county, which owns the 2,700-foot, steel and concrete bridge, is now in the midst of a federally funded $1.2 million concept development phase. This includes collecting the public’s comments over a 30-day period ending Nov. 25.The county hopes the federal government will fund a rehabilitation or new bridge. It began talking to local government officials about a bridge project in April. Work on a bridge rehabilitation or replacement – with a replacement estimated to cost between $100 to $130 million – would run from winter 2023-24 to winter 2026-27.Kim Robinson, 56, a Rumson resident who was at work in Fair Haven, prefers a low, movable bridge – “I think they’re part of the Shore heritage,” she said. “It just blends in with the landscape.”But Robinson questioned if rehabilitating the current one would be feasible.“I love when the bridge is open,” Robinson said. “It makes you pause to look at the scenery. The kids get out of the car.“High bridge, yeck,” Robinson said.“I don’t want a tall bridge,” said Denise Kelleher, 58, who lives in Rumson and owns the Cups and Cakes Bakery there. “The Oceanic Bridge is just special to me. There’s something, just the beauty. I just think a tall bridge would be inappropriate.”Pat Raphael of Fair Haven, who was at the Navesink River waterfront with her family, preferred a new movable, low bridge as well.“I agree, not a big, high bridge,” said Raphael’s husband, Rich. “It changes everything.”Rich Raphael has used the bridge for five years in his work commute. Generally, he does not mind if he has to stop when the bridge is open for boat traffic. Perhaps a drawbridge could be built higher than the current one, which sits 25 feet above high tide, he suggested.Pat Raphael would like to see it built parallel to the current bridge site, so there would not be a need for a months-long, 8-1/2 mile detour – the same length no matter if detouring through Red  Bank or Rumson-Sea Bright.The current bridge is two lanes with no shoulders, with a sidewalk along one side.Jim Jaroschak, 44, of Rumson bicycles over the bridge and said it would “be nice to have a bike path.” Now, bicyclists are to dismount and walk their bikes across the bridge.Jaroschak, who was at the Navesink River waterfront in Rumson, prefers a low, movable bridge. “The aesthetics are important,” he said.“Boats going through, it’s not that often,” Jaroschak said. “It’s not a big traffic backlog when they do open it.”“The view is important to a lot of people,” said Steven Krog, 62, a landscape architect from Westchester County, New York, who works on properties along the river. “People like the bridge.”Krog, who was shopping in Fair Haven, figured those people would want a lower, movable bridge for aesthetics, something Frank Giblin, 54, who lives in Middletown’s Locust section near the bridge, favored.“The bridge that’s there now has aged itself,” Giblin said.But Harvey Shooman, an owner of Fair Haven Hardware, said he prefers a high, fixed-span bridge, either in the same footprint or parallel to the current bridge site. A parallel bridge would eliminate the need for months of a detour, he said.“Aesthetic-wise, it would be fine,” said Shooman, 65, who was at work.Shawn Rubin, 46, of Rumson prefers a high, fixed bridge, too.“You need to build a new one, high enough not to open it all the time,” said Rubin, who was at the Navesink River waterfront. “Make it lasting.”Sure, there is a nostalgic feeling for today’s bridge or style, “it’s a beautiful thing, because it’s from a time gone past,” Rubin said. But he prefers a high bridge, one built parallel to decrease detours.Ryan DeVesty, 35, working in his yard in the Navesink-Locust area of Middletown near the bridge, was leaning toward a tall, fixed bridge.“I guess a bridge in the same spot like the (Route 36) Highlands Bridge, where it doesn’t have to open,” DeVesty said.When the bridge was closed a few years ago for repairs, “it certainly affected our business,” Shooman said.“Even when they do work on the bridge and it’s closed for a short amount of time, it really hurts the community,” Rubin said.“I drive that bridge two or three times a week,” Krog said. “I’m on it frequently. That bridge is really important to the organization of my day. You don’t even think about it until it’s not available.”Thompson, 63, lives on one side of the bridge in Fair Haven and is an owner of Guaranteed Plants and Florist on the other side of the bridge in the Locust section of Middletown.“We’d like to see what’s exactly there now, built to contemporary safety standards,” Thompson said. “To have a high, contemporary bridge there would not be conducive to the area. We’re very quick to get rid of our past, we don’t savor our history.”Thompson wants to see the new bridge built just east of the existing bridge.Some are undecided at this point.Michele Peters of Middletown was undecided about a low or high bridge, but she had her priorities.“Safety, and, then aesthetics, and then, practicality,” said Peters, saying the practical aspects should consider motorists, boaters and bicyclists. “I do enjoy the view, I look at it several times a day. It’s a focal point.”“It’s going to be an inconvenience, no matter what,” Krog said. But, Krog added, something has to be done with the bridge.Information on the Oceanic Bridge, including survey forms, is available at monmouthcountyoceanicbridge.com.Comments on the bridge may be directed to Inkyung Englehart, project manager, Monmouth County Division of Engineering and Traffic Safety, Hall of Records Annex, 3rd Floor, 1 E.

HEAVILY FAVORED ENOLA GRAY CRUSHES FOES AS SHE TAKES $100,000 IRISH O’BRIEN STAKES BY 4 LENGTHS UNDER BAZE; ALEXANDER HOMEBRED, TRAINED BY D’AMATO GETS 6 ½ FURLONGS DOWN HILLSIDE TURF IN 1:11.91

first_imgARCADIA, Calif. (March 18, 2017)–In what may have been her best performance to date, Nick Alexander’s homebred Enola Gray rocketed clear of her competition three sixteenths of a mile from home as she went on to win Saturday’s $100,000 Irish O’Brien Stakes by a comfortable four lengths under Tyler Baze.  Trained by Phil D’Amato, she got 6 ½ furlongs while in-hand in 1:11.91.Breaking from the inside in a field of seven California-bred or sired older fillies and mares, she was at once on terms with speedy longshot Emmy and I while well within herself heading to the half mile pole.“This may have been her best race,” said Alexander.  “There was a lot more speed in there today than in the last few races…I think Tyler knows that what he does best is to just barely put any pressure on the reins.  He’s pretty much loose reining her now.  She can go so fast early and not get tired…She has such a light touch on the ground.  It’s not taking a lot out of her.  I’m not an expert but, she’s the damndest horse I’ve ever had.”Fresh off a win over the course in the Sunshine Millions Filly & Mare Turf Sprint on Jan. 28, Enola Gray, a 4-year-old gray daughter of Grazen, who is out of the More Than Ready mare Unsung Heroine, was off at 2-5 and paid $2.80, $2.20 and $2.10.“This filly, she loves the hill,” said Baze, who has been aboard for all six of her career wins.  “She loves the grass.  She was just out there having fun.  It takes a few strides to get going but once she does, it’s like riding on a cloud.  This filly is unbelievable.  I can’t wait until next time.”In taking the Irish O’Brien, Enola Gray is now unbeaten in three hillside starts.  Additionally, she notched her fifth stakes win, improving her overall record to 9-6-2-1 and with the winner’s share of $60,000, she increased her earnings to $509,100.With Flavien Prat aboard, Desert Steel was second turning for home and stayed there, finishing 1 ¾ lengths in front of Lily Kai.  Off at 6-1, Desert Steel paid $4.60 and $3.20.Last early with Stewart Elliott up, Lily Kai, off at 22-1, paid $5.00 to show.Fractions on the race were 21.61, 43.46 and 1:05.88.
