Endorsing Jubelirer

I am writing to ask Altoona Mirror readers who also went to Penn State to join me in endorsing Bob Jubelirer for election to the Penn State Board of Trustees.

I know, if elected, Bob will bring a spirited, thoughtful approach to the many significant challenges facing the current board.

From helping to select a new university president to lobbying state lawmakers to help with funding so tuition increases can be minimized, trustees will play a critical role.

I’m pleased to join my fellow letterman and fellow Altoona native Mike Irwin, former Governor and Secretary of Homeland Security Tom Ridge and current trustee Anthony Lubrano in endorsing Jubelirer.

You have until May 2 to vote. If you haven’t received a ballot, you can request one at BOT@psu.edu.
