Ever have one of those moments where you want a meeting to be over?

Published:

Today's tRAC (the Residents' Action Council) meeting was extraordinarily long (1 hour and 30 minutes. They usually last for less than an hour.). We had 5 votes today, and 4 of the 5 were on the same subject: Giving funding for a program. We tried voting on half the person's asking amount (The person screwed up the funding norm, so the majority usually went with "no".) The first vote was "no", so one fourth of the amount was proposed, and that got a bigf "no". Both sides had a big discussion about both sides of the issue. The person's asking amount was one-sixth of the budget to be used by all residence halls, was intended for use on 12 people. The next vote (which was proposed by me) was to give the person nothing. The first 11 (12 votes total) were for "yes" on giving the person nothing, but the twelth voted "no". The last of the votes on the issue were for approx. $100. The vote turned out to be tied, and in the event of a tie, the chairperson (she wasn't at the meeting at the time. She had somewhere else to be) has to break the tie. So now, representatives from both sides are going to contact her to innorm her of both sides of the issue. The meeting ended a few minutes later, and then I explained to Erica that the meeting ran late.
