Alumni Council Elections Results Are In, Voter Turnout Way Down

The results are in for Alumni Council election, which Penn State’s hefty alumni base predictably ignored. Only 9,445 out of 133,548 eligible voters cast ballots this year to decide 10 out of 86 Alumni Council seats, the group that governs the Alumni Association.

For some context, only about 14 percent of registered voters cast ballots in last week’s Centre County municipal primary — called one of the worst turnouts in years. And, 37,579 alumni voted in this year’s more relevant Board of Trustees election.

Two Council members, Carrie Egnosak and Carl K. Rosenberger, were not reelected this year.

Here are the winners, with asterisks denoting the reelected:

1. *Susan McNulty-Atwater, ’99, Barker, N.Y. (4,978 votes)

2. *Katie Bartoo, ’92, Lib, Orlando, Fla. (4,555)

3. *Sally Hornick Anderson, ’98, H&HD,  Winnetka, Ill. (4,497)

4. *Joan M. McLane, ’94, Lib, Los Angeles (4,311)

5. *Kenneth Haas Jr., ’80, Lib, Kill Devil Hills, N.C. (4,001)

6. *Susan Ingham Martin, ’68, Edu, York, Pa. (3,734)

7. Thomas Range, ’89, Sci, Levittown, Pa. (3,699)

8. *Johanna Ramos, ’92, 99g Eng, Herndon, Va. (3,624)

9. *Todd Dietrich, ’04, IST, Bethlehem, Pa. (3,383)

10. Kathy Kasperik, ’92, H&HD, Pittsburgh (3,371)
