Jim Leiding, candidate for president
Candidate for President
I would be happy and proud to serve as your president for another term.
I was a faculty member at ESU from June, 1968, until Feb., 2002. During that time I was active in APSCUF.
Locally I served as Meet and Discuss Chairman for 30 years, President for two years, delegate for 30 years and after I retired I served as President of APSCURF for four years.
On the State level I was on the Executive Council for 6 years, Meet and Discuss for 8 years, (6 years as Spokesperson), Chair of the Personnel Committee for 6 years, 18 years of the Health and Welfare Committee (12 years as Chairman).
The last three years I have been Vice-President of APSCURF.
If elected I would, with the help of the Executive Committee, work to maintain (and even increase) our benefits, especially our Health and Welfare Benefits which are constantly under attack. I would also do all I could to be of help to State-wide APSCUF.
Helen Bieber, candidate for secretary
Candidate for Secretary
I retired in June 2016 after teaching 40 years, 35 of them in the State System (temporary at IUP, tenured at KU).
During that time I was always involved with APSCUF holding positions local committees and VP off and on for about 12 years.
I also served as an Alternate Delegate and Delegate until running for and being elected as APSCUF State Secretary, a position I held for 18 years.
I’m happy to continue my service working with APSCURF alongside many of the friends I’ve made over the years.
Ana Börger-Greco, candidate for delegate
Ana Börger-Greco, Ph.D.
(Retired from Millersville University)
Candidate for APSCURF Delegate to the APSCUF Legislative Assembly
Dear fellow APSCURF members,
I have served as your representative to the APSCUF Legislative Assembly for the past two years, and would like to continue to do so for another two. I ask you to vote for me, because I think I have done a good job so far. I have attended all Assemblies, prepared to know what would be discussed, asked for your input and concerns, and voiced those concerns and questions to the LA when appropriate. I have made sure to write in-depth reports on each Legislative Assembly to make sure you can keep current on APSCUF and APSCURF concerns.
Because of my position as your Delegate, I have also been on the APSCURF State Executive Committee. I believe I have also served you well there by attending all meetings well-prepared for discussions; I’ve contributed ideas and done any tasks assigned.
I have also been active in APSCURF on a local level, serving as Vice-President/ President Elect of the APSCURF-MU Chapter since 2018. This summer I will take over as President.
When I came to Millersville in 1989, I joined APSCUF right away, because I realized that at a state university, where people other than faculty make important decisions about how the university is run, faculty must stand together to make a strong impact on those other decision makers. Over the years I felt more and more strongly about this, and became more and more involved in APSCUF and our university’s shared governance process.
During my tenure at Millersville I also served as Legislative Assembly delegate for 10 years and as alternate for 4. I also served on the state APSCUF By-Laws Committee for eight. Because I felt that the curriculum is central to what faculty does at the university, I served on MU’s Faculty Senate for 23 years as senator and 12 of those years as Chair of senate; at MU, senate is the APSCUF university-wide curriculum committee.
The three principal positives I bring to my representing you as APSCURF delegate to the State Legislative Assembly are that
- I have a good handle on what our issues are;
- I am willing and able to put in the necessary work; and
- I am not afraid to speak up for what we believe.
I hope that that is what you want in a representative and that you will vote for me. Thank you.
