So far, break has been just that. However there was one bit of news that came out of the SIU Board of Trustees meeting this morning you might be interested in…

Poshard steps down early. Dunn will begin May 1.

  1. “Joan”,

    You have kept the lights on, the beverages flowing, the kitchen open, and even booked the bands.

    Good on you, nicely done.

  2. To the Post, and Poshard,

    Maybe sometimes, you just “have enough”(?)

    I am sure being at Gradutation ceremonies might have factored in, being an election year, and a Lame Duck, why deal with all the “Out Front” Dopiness. Walk away while no one is watching.

  3. Probably a smart move on Poshard’s part. The unions submitted their intent to negotiate last month; having a presidential transition in the middle of negotiations would create a logistical nightmare.

  4. Good guy. If I were him, I’d move to “The Villages” for half the year. He’s definitely reached retirement age with a good legacy behind him. Enjoy life Rep. Poshard.
