Anthony Lubrano, an outspoken critic of how Penn State trustees have responded to the Jerry Sandusky scandal, is seeking a seat on the university’s board.
Lubrano said he has submitted his name to Penn Staters for Responsible Stewardship. That group, which is unhappy with the board, plans to back three candidates. Three of the board’s nine alumni seats are up for election this year.
“This is about the governance of our university and what happened Nov. 9 made us all acutely aware that this university isn’t managed the way we thought it was managed,” Lubrano said.
Trustees announced the decision to fire Paterno and then-President Graham Spanier in a hastily called meeting the night of Nov. 9.
Lubrano has been a major donor to the university and his name in on the baseball field.
Lubrano said he would like the Penn Staters for Responsible Stewardship support, and will defer a final decision on seeking a seat until after the group has made its final selection.
So far, about 15 Penn State graduates have announced their plans to run for a seat on the board.
