ASD’s Last Hurrah

Dartmouth graduates tied with Alumni for a Strong Dartmouth have sent emails urging alumni to vote in the Trustee election, which ends tomorrow. ASD is the shadowy organization dedicated to defeating alumni Trustee petition candidates Peter Robinson ’79 and Todd Zywicki ’88.

One email, nearly identical to others forwarded to The Dartmouth Review, is from Alumni Councilor J. Michael Houlahan ’66, one ASD’s original supporters. Remarkably, the email plugs not only the ASD website but also The Review‘s election coverage (emhpasis added, recipients hidden for privacy).
