Those dopey sons and daughters of Wellington’s bludging “public servants” have done it again.
Workers’ Party member Jasmine Freemantle was elected President of the Victoria University of Wellington Students’ Association (VUWSA) for 2009 last night.
Freemantle is the third Workers’ Party member to be elected VUWSA President, the first being current Wgtn Tramways Union President Nick Kelly, and the second being current VUWSA President Joel Cosgrove.
In 2009 Freemantle will be joined by two other Workers’ Party members on her student executive, Marika Pratley and Sam Oldham – the two highest polling candidates running for the five general executive positions.
Freemantle last served on the VUWSA executive as Women’s Rights Officer in 2002. She is currently Assistant Lecturer in Gender and Women’s Studies at Victoria University, a discipline currently under attack by University management.
