Opinion: Why Haven’t Zimbroff/Wagstaff Done Anything Yet?

I like to think I’m a patient guy. I can watch the pot until it boils and I’ve spent more time than I’d like to admit waiting in a line that went nowhere–but even I have my limits. Even I reach a point where I have to stop and say, “You know what? Enough is enough.” Robbie Zimbroff and William Wagstaff were elected to increase engagement and make the ASSU more visible to the student body.

These are big promises and Zimbroff/Wagstaff have not been able to deliver. The school year is almost over–we have less than 5 weeks left in the quarter and what have they done? Nothing. Where are the flow charts and the mind maps? Where can I go to see social cam videos and white board scribbles? What happened to innovation, progress, and bold quantifications of success? By this time last year, Stanford 2.0 had produced 4 campus-wide emails (now on sale–Stanford 2.0: The All-Campus E-mail Archives. 408 pages. Hardcover. Estimated Retail Value $29.99), filled 28 cabinet positions, and declared “Mission Accomplished” on no fewer than 8 campaign promises. Well, I’ve had enough. If Zimbroff wants my respect, he’ll have to earn it–and he won’t do that by lollygagging around, campaigning, and attending Elections Results Parties. No, he’ll have to get to work, and the clock is ticking….

Enough is enough. Zimbroff and Wagstaff–your time is almost up, it’s time to get your head in the game.
