14. Sounds like Jane is a ruthless person

I bookmarked the letter. It outlines the personality of an extremely undemocratic administrator who has no problem scapegoating anyone who gets in her way. Here is an except:

Jane, as board president, was directly involved in:

Corrupting existing democratic processes at the college and acting as the primary apologist for the autocratic policies and practices of Richard Greene

Orchestrating the formal approval of a budget (1996-7) that eliminated essential services, was politically retaliatory in nature, and excessively costly in administrative overhead

Ensuring approval at the board level of what amounted to a faculty purge -- the termination of 16 employees in 1996

Suppressing criticism and stifling dissent

Enabling Greene to render existing governance committees ineffective by rescinding the decision-making authority that had been delegated to legitimate standing committees and depriving them of necessary information

Stonewalling proposals for the design and implementation of progressive organizational development processes, including a performance appraisal process for the president, climate analysis of the college, and strategic planning

Suppressing the open discussion of proposals for progressive structural change in the college's governance processes

Creating an environment where an inordinate number of talented and committed staff felt compelled to resign

Stalling the efforts toward faculty/staff unionization


Sounds like someone we wouldn't want as FLOTUS under any circumstances.

Thanks for posting this!
