Steering Committee

Mort and I have received a tremendous amount of support and encouragement from a broad cross section of alumni since the Alumni Council voted for us to run for two seats on the board in December.  Today we're pleased to announce the initial 100 members of our campaign steering committees representing nearly every class from 1951 to 2008 and an enormous variety of backgrounds all of whom are united with a common interest in supporting the College and President Kim.  We are humbled by the number and wide-range of alumni who have stepped forward to support us as trustee candidates and are grateful for their time and efforts – all the more so, as this represents the broadest and deepest support team ever assembled on a behalf of a Trustee candidate at the beginning of an election.  
Looking ahead, the balloting period starts on March 10th.   Joe Asch'79 - lauded by the Review as "...everyone's favorite blogger and critic of the administration..." - has announced his intent to run against me as a petition candidate, so it is important that we communicate clearly the very real differences between us, and the stakes for the College’s future. And it is critical that we mobilize the broadest possible alumni support.  If you are in favor of moving past divisive governance issues, focusing on classrooms not courtrooms, and electing two independent-minded trustees who have the professional and board experience to help Dartmouth through a very challenging time, Mort and I – and the 100 fellow alumni listed below -- would appreciate your votes.
