HALF OF BOARD FAILS TO STAND UP FOR STUDENTS

Five out of ten Union board directors thought misusing student funds did not warrant the censure of a guilty director.

After ninety minutes of the first board meeting for 2015, the University of Sydney Union (USU) Board came very close to not censuring directors Liam Carrigan and Robby Magyar after their deceitful abuse of student funds in yet another scandal to engulf the USU.

At the end of last month it became apparent that Mr Carrigan had used more than $500 in student funds to allegedly transport himself to and from university in the month of January alone. January being the month where there is the fewest amount of Union Board events and meetings. For Carrigan, it was found that he made twenty-three invalid uses of his Cabcharge card, deemed to be so by the human resources department. It was also revealed that in the same month, Mr Magyar used the card eight times that were also deemed to be invalid.

The motion to censure the two directors was proposed by Tim Mathews, who along with others spoke-out against the misconduct of the two in question. Both men defended themselves in front of the board, attempting to justify their actions. This was enough for Mr Magyar to have five board directors vote in his favour. The casting vote of President, Tara Waniganayaka had to be used to carry the motion proposed. Carrigan’s censure was passed without the need of such powers.
