This year's PSU Trustee election will be the most hotly contested in the history of the university. After speaking with multiple candidates, I am endorsing fellow Beta Sig Rich Bundy (candidate #35), '93,'96g and ask you to vote for him as well.

Former Trustee president, Mimi Barash, is actively and enthusiastically supporting Rich. Rich has the endorsement of university honored Beta Sigs, Gene Chaiken, David Lipson, Marc Brownstein and Simon Ziff as well. I have known Rich since his undergraduate days and I wholeheartedly recommend him without reservation.

Rich has unique skills which are directly relevant to PSU's current challenges. Rich has twenty years of significant higher education administration experience at three major universities, including his current role as the President and CEO of the University of Vermont Foundation. No other candidate brings this specific and well-needed background to the table.

Having a Beta Sig serve on the Board is important to our organization. Rich strongly supports Greek Life and the role it plays in the development of Penn State students and he will carry a positive, forward thinking agenda into his service on the Board. Rich is a State College native – his father is the director of the Penn State Marching Blue Band – and he has remained active in the local community since leaving State College.

If you are interested in more details of Rich's candidacy and his specific positions, you can refer to his website, www.richbundy.org , his Facebook page at THIS LINK and listen to his thorough radio interview at THIS LINK .

If you do NOT receive your ballot tomorrow, you need to send your name, graduation year and degree, and current e-mail address to This email address is being protected from spambots.

Please pass the word to other Penn State grads and I thank you for your consideration.
