Regents get first elected woman
The only woman ever elected to the NU Board of
Regents will replace UNO student Regent John Kirk at
the next board meeting.
Katie Rinn,' a political science major at UNO, beat
her opponent, Mike Smith, by a vote of 283 to 242.
According to Rinn, this represents only 5 percent of
the UNO student body.
Rinn said she sees her role as a regent as being two
fold. She said she will act as an intermediary between
the students and regents by representing student con
cerns at board meetings and informing UNO students
about board actions.
Even though only 5 percent of the student body
voted, Rinn said she considers herself a representative
of all UNO students.
Student credibility can be enhanced by keeping
things short and to the point at regent meetings, she
T4hink that credibility has grown more and more
every term in the past few years," she said.
Rinn said she is not a feminist and did not think
her sex was a factor in her election.
MI didn't run my platform on the basis of 'let's get a
woman on the Board ,' " she said .
The main point is that she and the students know
she is qualified for the job, she explained.
