Board for University of Pittsburgh Medical Center

Nicholas Beckwith III, News Bureau: There are 63 directors on the board, which is comprised of representatives from the University of Pittsburgh, member hospitals and other community civic and business leaders.

Are you on the board too? Or, have you been?
I frown upon authorities. Appointed authority directors serve on the boards and get to pull powerful strings in the public sector. They are not held accountable to voters in elections. PAT, Stadium Authority, Parking Authority, Water & Sewer, Leasing Authority and so on.

Worse than a frown, like frown squared, goes out to UPMC. Those board members are not even identified. Faceless.

We need to open our ways, big time.
