UCA trustee draws support

Posted By on Sat, Nov 1, 2008 at 6:28 AM

Interesting. The UCA faculty and staff have called for Gov. Beebe to reappoint Michael Stanton to the UCA Board. They laud Stanton for releasing to media the smoking gun memo that President Lu Hardin wrote over names of others to justify a big bonus.

Some thoughts on that:

1) Hardin's tenure had already begun unraveling by the time the memo was released on account of clandestine and extraordinary bonusing approved by Stanton and other board members, though there's no doubt the memo hastened the affair.

2) Stanton used public equipment from UCA at his home for a political fund-raiser for Republican Sen. Gilbert Baker.

3) Stanton took and enjoyed special treatment for his children on UCA housing and a wedding reception (comped bill) at the UCA student center.

4) UCA needs an entire roster of fresh leadership.

5) Beebe has worked hard for Joe White for state Senate, not Gilbert Baker.

6) Dream on, faculty.

  • Donald Trump is historically unpopular — and not necessarily where you think

    My colleagues John Ray and Jesse Bacon and I estimate, in the first analysis of its kind for the 2018 election season, that the president's waning popularity isn't limited to coastal cities and states. The erosion of his electoral coalition has spread to The Natural State, extending far beyond the college towns and urban centers that voted for Hillary Clinton in 2016. From El Dorado to Sherwood, Fayetteville to Hot Springs, the president's approval rating is waning.
