On April 28th, the Aggie ran a story about a vote of "no confidence" in Mark Yudof and the UC Regents, and I'd like to remind everyone how golden an opportunity this is. No matter where you come from on the political spectrum, you have to admire the chance we have to VOTE on UNELECTED OFFICIALS. How cool is that? Sure the vote is just symbolic, and its being pushed through by many of the student protestors and those opposed to the fee increases and privatisation, but whether you agree with the protestor or not, wouldn't you like to see where Yudof and the Regents stand? I know that even if I were a Yudof supporter, that I'd want to push this vote through because it's a chance to further democratize our instituion, the UC, and that should be a goal of all voters whether they support the current leadership or not. Voting is a inheritant right of the citizens, and we should exercize that right as often as possible. If I did believe Yudof and the Regents were in the right, than I would have confidence in him to win the vote. So even if you hated every single student protest action, and can't identify or understand the positions against the Regents (www.teachthebudget.org), than just sign the petition anyways and take the gamble on the Regents to see if these appointees can stand up to what we expect from so much of our leadership, popular support through votes.
