Thank you!

Many thanks to all of you who supported us throughout the campaign, shared information with colleagues about the election and about our candidacy, and entrusted us with your votes. We are proud to represent all of our WMU faculty colleagues as your new WMU-AAUP president- and VP-elect, and we are looking forward to getting to work on the transition before we officially assume our offices in January.

We are excited about the prospect of working with you as well as for you, and we hope that we will continue to hear from you often about the issues that are most important to you. Stay tuned for more information about opportunities for you to reclaim your union, but in the meantime, if you have ideas or suggestions you’d like to share with us, we want to hear from you!Thank you again for your support. We are honored by your vote of confidence — both the presidential and vice presidential races were decided by margins of 26-30 percentage points — and we will not let you down!

Matthew and Lisa
