Brendan Butler EE 2007

Running For: 2021 Council

Campaign Statement

I am excited for the opportunity to work as part of the alumni association.  Since my graduation for Cooper, I have recognized the terrific opportunity that attendance at the school granted me, an opportunity without which I would not be where I am today.  I wish to ensure that the same high quality education that I received continues to be provided to all future classes.  I also want to work with alumni, the Board of Trustees, parents, and students (both current and incoming) to try & return Cooper Union to providing an education that is “free as air and water.”
