The first step in kicking the sale of Coca-Cola from the Vassar campus was reached moments ago at tonight's VSA Council meeting.
The Council passed the Kick Coke resolution with a vote of 14 to 8 in favor.
Now the proposal goes to Cappy and the Committee on College Life.
Check out our "sound off" on the issue from a few days ago. Students from both sides were very vocal, as the post received 51 comments.
Our poll showed a clear split between readers who are for and against the proposal. 37% (79 votes) of you said yes to kicking coke, while 50% (107) of you said no. 11% (25) of readers feel they need more information. 211 people voted in the poll.
Update: Information posted earlier about the plan to phase out Coca Cola was incorrect.
Update 2: We have to stress that this was just the first step in the campaign, and there are still decisions that need to be made. "There's no plan in place to remove Coke at this point," VSA President Jimmy Kelly '09 tells Mads. "The vote today is not the deciding factor. CCL and Cappy will decide where it goes, and no withdrawal plan is in place."
Update 3: While this is an anonymous forum, please stick to constructive feedback and use your judgment when posting comments. We have already received several complaints. Thanks!
