I just got my ballots for Directors of the Harvard Alumni Association and Overseers of Harvard College. I know absolutely nothing about what issues are involved in these positions, nor do I want to spend much time finding out. The candidate statements provide no useful information on the subject. If I don’t get any information suggesting that certain people particularly deserve to be elected, or particular deserve to lose, I plan to abstain.
Does anyone have views on the subject? Extra useful if your reasons are relevant to my own views on the subject. Since I have no idea what issues are relevant to Harvard overseers or HAA directors, I don’t know what my views are. But as a rough approximation to what my views might be if I knew anything, you can guess based on the general tenor of this blog.
