Group’s picks fall short

Published February 1, 2012

Penn Staters for Responsible Stewardship today announced their top six endorsement picks. Unfortunately, the group’s choices look like more of the same.

Instead of choosing candidates with a record of fighting for transparency, most of their picks came straight from Wall Street. That’s not the kind of leadership the Penn State family needs. It’s disappointing.

I applaud the group’s efforts, but we must elect candidates who have real plans to change the trustee culture. Otherwise, Penn State Inc. – not Penn State University – will continue to flourish.
