If You Are A Dartmouth College Alum . . .

this letter from Peter Robinson may interest you:

Dear fellow Dartmouth Alumna or Alumnus,

I’m seeking a seat on the Dartmouth Board of Trustees as a petition candidate in the election this coming March. A former White House speechwriter—I wrote the Berlin Wall address in which President Reagan challenged General Secretary Gorbachev to “tear down this wall!”—I’m now a Fellow at the Hoover Institution, the public policy research center at Stanford University.

As a trustee, I’d devote myself to three issues: excellence in undergraduate education, freedom of speech on campus, and a restoration of the Dartmouth athletic program, much of which is now sunk in mediocrity, to its traditions of spirited achievement. Dartmouth, I believe, must build on its own immense and distinctive strengths—not become a second-rate Harvard or Yale.

To place my name on the March ballot, I’ll need to gather 500 signatures, and I’d like to ask for yours. If the views you read here reflect your own, please print the petition, sign it, and mail it to me by February 18.

On this website you’ll be able to learn why I’m running, who I am, and how to get in touch with me.

Perhaps most important, you’ll be able to sign the petition. As you’ll see, the petition is available in both PDF and WORD formats. Please print it, sign it, and, once again, mail it to me by February 18.

Time is short-I’ll need to deliver all 500 signatures to the College by the middle of February. So if you know of Dartmouth alumni who would also like to help, please send them the link to this website.
