Conklin Board Change Statement

Penn Staters For Responsible Stewardship Statement on State Rep. Scott Conklin’s Proposed Changes to PSU Board

DECEMBER 11, 2012 — “Penn Staters for Responsible Stewardship is in favor of any changes to the composition of the Penn State Board of Trustees which will result in the removal of the members who were present as of November 2011. We will remove them or replace them one way or another. They have demonstrated irresponsible leadership and absolutely no defense of the University for more than a year. They continue to hold others accountable to a standard they are unwilling to impose on themselves. They have been secretive with contracts, such as that of Louis Freeh, refusing to provide a scope of work and/or letter of intent after repeated, reasonable requests. And, they have been spending with reckless abandon, most recently more than $400,000 for two months of work by an Athletics Integrity Monitor, when what we really need is a Board of Trustees Integrity Monitor.”
