Why Vote for Myke?

The leadership has apparently consolidated into the President and a select fewall the power for all of the decisions made.  Given this, Penn State was ripe for the catastrophe

that has occurred.  This problem goes way beyond the Sandusky scandal.  Erickson said it was

a “Sandusky Scandal” at the town meeting–I think that only brought the true “Penn State

Scandal” to light.  In fact, the real scandal is how a few at the top of the

Penn State Organization have usurped all the power to make all the decisions that

affect past, present,and future alumni, friends, and students. My goal as a trustee

would be to examine what the policies and procedures are and how to change them to create

more accountability for decision making regarding the future of Penn State.

I think we have enough lawyers and company presidents–I want to be a representative voice

on the board for the average person who has pride in the past, present, and future of Penn State.

  1. Myke is a truly dedicated person with more than ample qualifications to fit the position. She is proactive and quick to make proper decisions.

  2. The same circumstance existed with Larry Suhey’s son re: playing time. Suhey had been lobbying Graham Spanier for Paterno’s resignation for 5 or more years. Dave Joyner, now PSU athletic director, was at the time of this frame up a member of the board of trustees who’s business had failed, was near personal bankruptcy and needed a source of income desperately. The three of these guys, in conjunction with Corbett, who was out to get Spanier for his public resistance to budget cuts, led what was effectively a coup d’etat.
