Increase will help residence halls

I am writing this letter to you to talk about RHA’s proposed tax increase. I want everyone to know the $3 tax increase is not to spend the money on ourselves, but to spend the money on our constituents.

First, there is legislation coming to the floor to kick an additional dollar back into the halls. Second, there is legislation coming to the floor to cut executive board pay by 24 percent so we can take the additional funding and pump it back into the halls. We are revamping our movies to make them better than ever, and we are hoping to bring big-name concerts to MSU.

There is one thing we need from you - your support. We need you to report issues in the halls to your government or caucus so we can see them through. Last year residents in Armstrong Hall asked their government to pursue peepholes, and installation of peepholes begins at the end of February. People asked for better movies, so we went back to our old movie distributor.

We need you to let us know what you want to see, and we will try our hardest to make it happen. Feel free to e-mail us at Furthermore, feel free to contact your hall representative, whose name should be listed at the front desk of each building.

Thank you for your time, and with your help we can make this university the place to be this year.
