Dear MSCA Faculty and Librarians:

Thanks to everyone who participated in the governance referendum held over the past two days. I am pleased to announce that, of the eight campuses that voted this month, all eight voted by a strong margin for Option One, to uphold the current system of governance (Article VII), as recommended by the MSCA Board of Directors. The specific results by campus are as follows:

Bridgewater
60 votes in favor of Option One
9 votes in favor of Option Two

Fitchburg
72 votes in favor of Option One
3 votes in favor of Option Two

Framingham
51 votes in favor of Option One
2 votes in favor of Option Two

Mass Art
21 votes in favor of Option One
0 votes in favor of Option Two
one challenged ballot

MCLA
45 votes in favor of Option One
12 votes in favor of Option Two

Salem
101 votes in favor of Option One
5 votes in favor of Option Two

Westfield
81 votes in favor of Option One
3 votes in favor of Option Two

Worcester
70 votes in favor of Option One
1 vote in favor of Option Two

Overall, this means that 93% of the votes cast supported the current system of governance.

Thanks again to those members who cast their ballots in this referendum. The Mass Maritime referendum will be held on March 22 and 23.

Patricia V. Markunas,
MSCA President
