Orit Sklar write in Front Page Magazine:
In the email message sent through the Buzzport announcement system, usually reserved for official Institute business, all 17,000 Georgia Tech students were informed about Obama’s visit and solicited to volunteer for his campaign. The message stated:
Senator Obama is also in need of a lot of volunteers to help him publicize while he is in Atlanta. If you are interested in volunteering you can check the box that says volunteers on the RSVP page.
Volunteers will be needed for Wednesday (street publicity team),
Thursday (sign making party) and Saturday (helping with the actual event) you can also reply to this message if you’d like to volunteer.
Is this solicitation an appropriate use of the Buzzport announcement system?
Not what I like to see from my Alma Mater.
