So Long, Suhey!

The alumni have spoken.  Both incumbents, Stephanie Deviney and Paul Suhey were ousted from the Board.  All three of the candidates endorsed by PS4RS won. (Note to future hopefuls . . . get on the good side of PS4RS.)

I am actually surprised Suhey managed to come in fourth, but at least the margin of victory was overwhelming.  I am saddened that David Mullaly didn’t win–and disappointed he didn’t get more support.

But the message is pretty clear:  the alumni are NOT happy with the way the current Board–or at least those that were present in November of 2011–handled the scandal and the after-math.  The vast majority don’t want to return to the status quo and “move on.”  We want the cowardly bastards that fired Paterno by phone without ever getting his side of the story first OUT.  And if we have to do it 3 per year because the egomaniacs can’t do the right thing and step down themselves, then so be it.

Mission accomplished this year.
