Not at all. He earned the nickname of Dr. NO at the Legislature, where he was a knee-jerk reaction against spending/investing in much of ANYTHING -- even before he saw it. You know, whatever the leadership of the anti-tax forces suggests.<quoted text>
You obviously have a problem with krinkie's views upsetting the apple cart at MnSCU, so by extension you must favor a system where everyone just gets along and does whatever the leadership suggests. your repeated reference to him as Dr No indicates you will disagree with anything he says, before he even says it.
I have nothing against a brash newcomer asking the questions some
do not want asked -- thereby causing discussion to go into new areas. I have played that role myself. What I have no time for is for someone who does not believe in the mission of an institution to waste huge amounts of time opposing virtually every action a board wants to take -- just to be an obstructionist, garner notoriety, cred with the anti-taxers, and grab a few headlines.
Perhaps Dr. NO will not operate that way. Maybe he will be a positive addition to the board of directors. Based upon his less-than-stellar performance in the Legislature -- I do not recommend holding one's breath until that happens.
Even you would not look good cold and purple -- so please stay with us!
