UNM Faculty has "standing" after all.

Three weeks ago, UNM Regents President Jamie Koch,
suggested that UNM faculty had no "standing" to take a confidence vote on he and his cronies in the leadership of the UNM. link

He argued that a recent report that UNM teachers are hard to find in their offices, meant they had no business challenging his performance, or anyone others'.

UNM faculty demonstrated the flaw in his reasoning by going ahead with the (no) confidence vote anyway. Journal link

My best advice to those brave souls who have established standing in the process; cement in place, your standing.
Before you get sidetracked on endless bunny trails and
red herring issues, establish first, that you have a right to
a seat at the table where decisions are made.

The issue of an independent outside audit of the administration of the UNM, is the only issue to press right now. Get some auditors in to look for the waste, the cronyism, the mismanagement, and the gluttony.

You have no seat at the table, if you are not told the whole truth
about what will be decided there.

The truth, the whole truth, and nothing but the truth.

All of it. (except as specifically and explicitly protected by the law,
or by any other good and ethical reason.)
