Allow students to elect SPB Exec, create accountability

With yet another white male brought to campus as part of Social Programming Board’s comedy series, it is now abundantly apparent that SPB’s survey system does not favor diverse acts. To counter this trend our editorial board recommends that positions on Social Programming Board become an elected instead of appointed.
