PS4RS Releases Statement On Board Of Trustees Alumni Election

Penn Staters for Responsible Stewardship (PS4RS) released a statement Monday after incumbent trustees Anthony Lubrano and Ryan McCombie announced they would not seek re-election. Both Lubrano and McCombie were endorsed by PS4RS and were first elected in July 2012.

“Each distinguished alumnus, in his own way, has advanced the notion and the desperate need for truthful and transparent leadership at Penn State University,” the statement reads. “Over two terms and six years, Ryan and Anthony have displayed loyalty, persistence and self-sacrifice in the name of correcting the false narrative of a university cover-up set in motion by the 2011 Board of Trustees.”

PS4RS is an advocacy organization formed in the aftermath of the Sandusky scandal aimed at reforming the Board of Trustees. Since its inception, it’s been a kingmaker in alumni trustee elections.

All nine current alumni-elected trustees have been endorsed by PS4RS. The organization said it will announce its endorsements for this election in the coming weeks.

Candidates who have reached the 250 nomination threshold have not yet been announced. Ballots will be sent to alumni via email on Tuesday, April 10, and elections will close at 9 a.m. Thursday, May 3.

When the truth and facts are finally written about this sad saga, Anthony Lubrano and Ryan McCombie will firmly and undoubtedly be on the right side of history. Each distinguished alumnus, in his own way, has advanced the notion and the desperate need for truthful and transparent leadership at Penn State University. Over two terms and six years, Ryan and Anthony have displayed loyalty, persistence and self-sacrifice in the name of correcting the false narrative of a university cover-up set in motion by the 2011 Board of Trustees. Their courage, in the face of outright lies promoted by the Boardd, was the catalyst for the formation and growth of Penn Staters for Responsible Stewardship, the largest governance advocacy organization of more than 100,000 supporters focused on the university. Our group will continue to support alumni trustee candidates this year, and every year, who seek to reduce the size of the board, promote transparency and importantly, tell the full and complete truth about the Sandusky scandal. We look forward to announcing our endorsements in the coming weeks.
