Grant Bosse, one of several to pass this on to me, makes this pithy observation:
A constant criticism of this process is that through the failure of the Association of Alumni to adopt all-media voting for all offices, it has made it extremely difficlut for Alumni who live outside of New England to participate in the process. Their response is to hold a public forum… in Boston.
