Editor:

The members of the Emeritus College Executive Council have every right to express their opinions as individuals only because they do not speak for the Emeritus student body (“In response to chatter,” Letters to the Editor, Dec. 13).

There is a wide variety of opinions among the 3,200 Emeritus students as to how the winter closure was covertly handled and whether it was fiscally necessary at all.

It would be much healthier and more democratic if Executive Council members were elected directly by the students instead of being selected by Dean Furuyama and incumbent council members.
