Rep. Buckley reaches out to SOU’s Board of Trustees

peter buckleyAshland, Ore. — Representative Peter Buckley would like to be Southern Oregon University’s next president.  The democrat expressed interest in the soon-to-be-open position during a 5 on 5 feature interview with NBC5 last month, but we’re told by members of the board that he recently contacted them.
In November, Senator Alan Bates told us, Buckley would be great for the job.

“He’d be a great president,” Sen. Alan Bates says, “He knows the ropes, he knows where the money is, he knows the university. I would hope he would throw his hat in the ring as we go to select a new president.”

Board Chairman Bill Thorndike says there is an extensive process they follow to fill this position. The trustees will meet Friday to begin the nationwide search for executive search firms who will work to find potential candidates.
