Welcome! Thanks for checking us out. With UVSS voter turn-out on the rise, and David Foster‘s blog helping to bring accountability to the board, I feel like it’s high-time someone dumbed down student politics. I’m here to provide a layman’s guide to what’s going on with the student government YOU elected, and what they’re doing with the money YOU give them. Sure, the current board is about to release a budget that puts the UVSS into it’s third year of deficit, but what does that mean to you? Will there be a hike in student fees? Will Felicita’s have to raise the price of beer?

I have connections within the UVSS and will use them to get plain-English explanations of the board’s actions and relay this information on to you. I will ask the right questions and give you the unbiased, honest answers.

    Hey there,

    Just thought I’d make you aware that I started UVSS Uncovered (http://uvssuncovered.blogspot.com/) for very similar reasons a couple months back. “this blog helps the average student understand the issues affecting their student union and campus.”

    Keep it up. I think more coverage serves to continue to make the board more accountable to students.
