Madison County Board Chairman Alan Dunstan has co-authored a letter to Governor Pat Quinn, asking him to reconsider last week's move to remove three current members of the Southern Illinois University Board of Trustees.  Dunstan and St. Clair County Board Chairman Mark Kern also request the governor meet with members of the Southern Illinois legislative delegation to resolve the issues.

Dunstan says the names Quinn nominated to take the place of those who would be replaced are not graduates of SIUE, and that gives him pause.

Dunstan comments

Haine's bill would require that, of the seven gubernatorial appointed board members, three of the appointees must be graduates of SIU Carbondale and three must be graduates of SIU Edwardsville, and would also extend voting privileges to the second student representative.
