Rising to Power?

We are making progress in our goals--this time in running for Faculty Senate. As our union rep. says," I would recommend voting only for the 'two Michaels,' so our vote will have more impact." Three Michaels on the ballot include two from the non-tenure ranks.

Advice from a Michael on the committee was shared at a recent mailbox room meeting: "Be careful what you wish for . . . " Well, as one of the Michaels in question, I knew what he was referring to, but certainly didn't want to abandon the goal. Knowing the likely consequences shouldn't be reason not to try--which is to say that becoming Senator Mike would only have a statutory effect for those in the second tier.

Nevertheless, the long term effect for the next generation could be fruitful. So I must pioneer.
