Joint President Statement from Jimmy Villarreal and President-elect, Austin Hechler to UCSB Students.

Dear Student Body,

Apologies for not sending my weekly report per usual. As you know, this past Monday was a holiday and given that I have term papers due — like all of you— I didn’t have a chance to write to you till now.

However, I have a concrete update for you all. On May 26th, we received a partial report from the Audit and Advisory Services’ Director, Robert Tarsia. Their report is attached. Please read it thoroughly. You will find that this report is regarding 1/3 of the total scope of the investigation. I have no control over the timeline of the investigation. The commission will not take up any matter regarding their findings until the entire investigation is completed.

Given that this year’s Senate’s has concluded its term—and the next Senate will not be sworn in until this investigation is completed, and the commission has had an opportunity to render a decision regarding the Spring 2016 election, I invite all business of the association to be sent to

Thank you for your patience on this matter and I am looking forward to getting this association back on track.

Jimmy Villarreal
ASUCSB President
