Penn State trustee Anthony Lubrano endorses alumni Doran, Jubelirer, Oldsey

mdawson@centredaily.comApril 6, 2013 

Penn State trustee Anthony Lubrano has chosen his endorsements in the crowded field of this year’s alumni trustees election.

Lubrano announced Friday he will vote for Barbara Doran, former state Sen. Robert Jubelirer and William Oldsey.

Doran, of New York, and Oldsey, of Basking Ridge, N.J., ran unsuccessfully last year, while Jubelirer jumped into the fray this year. They are among 39 candidates vying for just three seats.

Doran and Oldsey got endorsements this year from the grass-roots group Penn Staters for Responsible Stewardship that has been hostile, if not warlike, toward every decision university leaders have made regarding former head coach Joe Paterno, the Freeh report and the NCAA sanctions.

Jubelirer was a longtime lawmaker from Blair County, but he now lives in Boalsburg.

Lubrano said he met Jubelirer in 2005 during the process to develop the baseball stadium with Lubrano’s name on it — Medlar Field at Lubrano Park. Lubrano said Jubelirer was “tireless” in working to get funding for the Millennium Science Complex and an expansion of the university’s Hershey Medical Center.

Lubrano said he met Doran and Oldsey on the campaign trail last year.

He said Doran’s experience in business, finance and on nonprofit boards is well-suited to serving on the trustees board.

Lubrano said he was impressed with Oldsey’s knowledge about Penn State and his experience as an expert in education and business.

Voting starts Wednesday and will continue through May 2.

The winners will be announced May 3.

The incumbents are local orthopedic surgeon Paul Suhey and suburban Philadelphia lawyer Stephanie Deviney.
