Ben Keller- Muddraker Budget Request
Ben Keller- Muddraker is part of ASHMC and while they have tabled at club fair, they have not asked for funds because they have been self-sufficient in past. Parents pay for paper and there are ads in paper. Now publishing more frequently. Running out of money now, but want to publish twice a semester ($200/publish). Want money for three additional issues and food for meetings.
Emma- how much money from parents each year?
Ben- Around $20 to $50. May not claim all $650. Want to be as self-sufficient as they can.
