UCSA Votes 'No Confidence' In UC Regents, Napolitano

UCSA is systemwide, see Daily Cal: UC Student Association passes vote of no confidence in UC Regents and UC President Janet Napolitano

The decision echoed similar votes from five UC campus student governments following the UC Regents’ approval of the tuition plan, which allows fees to increase by 5 percent per year for the next 5 years, assuming the state increases funding to the university by 4 percent annually.

According to UC Student Association board chair Kevin Sabo, the purpose of the “no confidence” vote passed by UCSA was to send a clear message to the university that students will not “tolerate being relegated to the role of political pawn” and expects the university to be a transparent about its spending.


“We’re trying to navigate the balance of not playing into Jerry Brown’s politics or Janet Napolitano’s politics, because they’ve both screwed us over,” said Caitlin Quinn, ASUC External Affairs Vice President, regarding UCSA’s budget proposal. “We don’t want to be besties with either of them.”
