Campaign Statement

Dear fellow alumni:

I am pleased to have been nominated to be a member of the Nominating Committee. My service is based on preserving the history and mission of CUAA and CU. It recognizes the very real practical needs to ensure CUAA vocalizes the will of the Alumni. I support the continuance of the Public Trust enacted by the NYS Legislature according to the wishes of Peter Cooper. I will work to communicate internally and externally to the community, supporters and the Public that Peter Coopers mandate of an institution to provide education that is “Open and Free to All” is worthy of support. Stewardship should be everyone’s goal we all have a Duty of Loyalty to Peter Coopers vision. If elected to this important position I look forward to continued service to CUAA and CU and working with everyone in the community.
