That's why last week I found myself vocally opposed to the CUSA budget, proposed by vice-president finance Meera Chander.
I thought I brought up a pretty good point.
The original budget, presented to the financial review committee before the meeting, had a typo - one that meant Chander
had an additional $9,000 to spend on behalf of the students.
But instead of taking her
time and finding the best way to spend that money, she
created a $9,000 contingency fund.
I thought Chander
owed it to herself and the students to take a little time and review that spending.
I suggested we could pass the budget at the next meeting.
worked hard on that budget for three months.
