Collegian statement on accounts attacking ASWU election candidates
Statement from the Collegian’s editor-in-chief, Noah Dantes: Anonymous accounts with unsubstantiated and thoughtless attacks against peers have no place in our community. Transparent, honest and respectful dialogue is the lifeblood of any democracy, and this type of behavior actively erodes our institutions and culture. It’s important to remember that all those involved in this election are our friends, peers and community members, and deserve to be treated as such. It’s natural to prefer one candidate over another, but those conversations must happen respectfully, truthfully and on the record in order to be productive to our community.
