San Jose City College Associated Student Government President Leif Benson confirmed that he was asked by the other student board members to resign, but emphasized that he would not be stepping down from his post at this time.

“The reason I didn’t accept the request to resign is that it goes against what motivated me to run for President in the first place,” Benson said in a one-page statement sent to the City College Times on Thursday, March 2. “I was and continue to be motivated to create a Student Government that embraces structure and learning new experiences.”

Benson’s statement came in response to an email sent to him by the eight other student board members last week on Tuesday, Feb. 28.
