You put me on the ballot. For that, I thank you.

Today I’m very honored to announce that I’ve secured a position on the 2014 Board of Trustees ballot.

The response to my request for nominations was overwhelming. My inbox flooded with people who let me know they sent in my name. I can’t tell you how grateful I am to have so much support.

The nomination period officially ends on February 25. After candidates officially accept or reject their nominations, administrators will hold a lottery to determine ballot positions. The official election ballot will be sent out on April 10.

I’ll release details of my priorities for Penn State in the coming days. But you can probably guess the crux of it – a pledge to work toward improving transparency, meaningful ethics reform, and an aggressive and innovative plan to make tuition more affordable.

Thanks for your support. It means the world to me.
