I also feel that it would be beneficial for the University community if these nominee
agendas are written and distributed to all members of the Board. This time around, I only
happen to know the plans of Staff Trustee Sheila Brothers who is nominated for Board Secretary.
If we really want to improve our Board and university governance, and also in light of the
lessons of Penn State, we need to have a real election of Board officers, with alternative
candidates and with candidate action agendas presented to the Board. That would improve
transparency and accountability of elected officers, improve Board functions, and improve the
University. Thank you.
With this my vote is no.”
