Candidate Statement: I would like to be elected to the Executive Committee because there is a great need to better represent faculty and everyone that makes OSU function properly. It is very important, especially during difficult times, to have a strong advocate of the rank and file to make sure we are all treated professionally and with fairness in the work place. While I admit that I am an idealist, I must say that I have learned how to fight with dignity to achieve lofty goals. In short, I believe my ideals are in line with those who seek a better working environment.
