    ASLC introduces new voting rules

    The ASLC started its meeting on April 9 by introducing a new way to vote on multiple proposals that council members can immediately make decisions on without discussion.
    Student Advocate Jon-Mychal Cox read the summary of all four items on the calendar and only one was tabled for discussion at the next meeting. Of the three proposals that passed, two requested funds. New commercial grade microwaves will be purchased for the Student Center with $5,000 out of the Student Center fund 82. 
    The second proposal requesting funds was to purchase new sound equipment for productions and events at Laney College with $1,259.98 from the general fund 71. 
    The last item on the consent calendar that was passed was the student government’s consent for Team Laney to begin a webisode and documentary project that would focus on the activities of the student government and media department.
    The first item on the agenda after the consent calendar was a funding request for the Peralta Engineering, Medicine & Science (PEMS) club for travel. The proposal requested $1,218.31 from the general fund 71 for the PEMS UC Davis club excursion and club rush. The proposal was unanimously approved.
    Senator Cece Garcia presented her plan to hold a Sports Mixer Meet and Greet from 11:50 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. on April 21. The objective of the mixer is to bring awareness of the health, wellness and well-being of the student body as it relates to kinesiology as well as bring unity and school spirit to the student body of Laney College by introducing testimonies of student athletes. 
    Senator Garcia requested $660.44 for sports drinks and water that will be available for students who attend the mixer. Her request was approved unanimously. 
    The final item to be discussed on the agenda was a Vision Festival presented by Student Advocate Cox. The Vision Festival will be held in the Student Center second floor from 6 p.m. 8:30 p.m. on Wednesday, April 22. It will include story telling and spoken word from guest speakers and students with a focus on sparking creativity in the oldest form of human connection through writing and speech. 
     The proposal requested $700 from fund 82 for food for those who attend, as well as 200 journals and pens that will be passed out for people to write in.

    In the fall of 2019, The Laney Tower rebranded as The Citizen and launched a new website. These stories were ported over from the old Laney Tower website, but byline metadata was lost in the port. However, many of these stories credit the authors in the text of the story. Some articles may also suffer from formatting issues. Future archival efforts may fix these issues.
