|Candidate by Petition for AOG Board of Directors|
As our AOG strives to become the Nation’s premier alumni association, we need dynamic, analytical, charismatic, and candid directors with broad and diverse organizational and leadership experience to: increase the transparency of our association’s business operations; facilitate the governance transition; and achieve the next level of growth. I am such a candidate, and seek a position as a Director of the Association of Graduates Board.

The overwhelming participation in the petition process demonstrated that graduates want choice in the selection of our alumni association’s volunteer leadership. The support of hundreds of graduates throughout the Long Gray Line put me and LTG (R) Jack Cushman ’44 on the election ballot. WP.org provided a great service by facilitating the petition process and creating the election information site. This is the first election in AOG history where we have a choice among candidates seeking a three-year term. The task before our graduates is an actual decision that involves a choice in the selection of directors for three-year terms, not simple ratification of the nominating committee’s selection as in the past. Please fulfill your important role in the electoral process by voting.
I urge you to vote for me in the election commencing 1 November 2005.
Thank you for your support.
Go Army, Beat Navy!
