When will Penn State’s “leaders” start to hear the voice of a determined majority of its alumni?
Once again, an election — this time conducted by the alumni association -— has left no doubt where the alumni community stands.
Despite the association’s leadership throwing every possible roadblock into the process, changing the rules midstream and attempting to suppress the turnout, a dissident group — PSAA for All, endorsed by Penn Staters for Responsible Stewardship — won nine of the 10 elected seats.
David Paterno led all vote-getters. Two winning candidates, Elizabeth Morgan and Jim Smith, had to sue to even get on the ballot.

All elections are essentially polls. A sample size of 8,000 out of a population of 136,000 would have a margin of error of less than 2 percent.
It’s time for Old Main to start dealing with reality. Penn State’s alumni demand transparency and accountability. No excuses. No delay. No doublespeak.
