Alumni Begin Voting

Roger L. Simon ’64 says he has cast his votes for insurgent alumni Trustee candidates Peter Robinson ’79 and Todd Zywicki ’88.

He explains why he hasn’t often voted in the past and why he voted this year. Normally,

you get to pick among a few candidates you never heard of. More often, you don’t even get to choose, just ratify, as you do with board elections for companies you have stock in. … [Robinson and Zywicki] are both highly qualified men but, to be perfectly frank, I’m not altogether sure what they stand for (although I know more about them than I do about their opponents – about whom I know nothing). I made my votes to support democratization in the system of electing university trustees.
