MONTGOMEY, Ala. (AP) - The president of the Alabama State University Student Government Association has sent a letter asking the chairman and vice chairman of the board of trustees to resign.

SGA President Darren Dubose said Monday the SGA Cabinet decided it was time to act when an accrediting agency sent the university a warning letter and noted that Chairman Elton Dean and Vice Chairman Marvin Wiggins had relatives with university contracts. Dubose also noted that Moody’s Investor Services downgraded the university’s bond rating during their tenure.

Dean said Monday the letter was a surprise and he needs time to digest it before commenting. Wiggins, a circuit judge, was in court and unavailable for comment.

University President Gwendolyn Boyd says she supports students’ right to voice their opinions and be active on university issues.
