|The leadership has apparently consolidated into the President and a select few
all 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.
