Memo to President Scott Scarborough, University of Akron:
You are the CEO of a public university. Or at least it was the last time I checked. That being the case, your salary plus other overhead items are paid by the public.
Aren't you obligated to respond directly to the taxpayers about your plans during this period of great campus stress instead of turning everything over to the head of the Board of Trustees? A lot of people around town are talking, particularly since the daily newspaper has now called for your "transition". Shouldn't you be talking, too?
I'm told your faculty critics will publish an unanswered letter to the board to break the silence.
