On Wednesday, ASUCD Chief Justice Rudy Ornelas submitted his letter of resignation to ASUCD President Thongsavat.
Ornelas cited issues with the current ASUCD Senate table as one of his reasons for resigning. Furthermore, he wrote that the current structure of the association did not lend well to helping students.
“Slate politics is not a way to do business in the best interest of students. It enables the majority to drown out the voices of the minority,” wrote Ornelas. “This fundamental problem must be fixed in order for our association to better serve our students.”
Ornelas said that he would stay in office until Nov. 23, or until his replacement is chosen.
