Rep. Phelps-Finnie Joins with Rep. Bryant in Calling for SIU President's Resignation

May 18, 2018

A second southern Illinois lawmaker is calling for the resignation of SIU System President Randy Dunn.

Following the release of emails in an op-ed piece that revealed disparaging remarks by Dunn made against SIU-Carbondale, State Rep. Natalie Phelps Finnie of Elizabethtown writes Dunn should resign because he has lost the full trust of the SIU-C community.

She adds his resignation would allow good faith discussions to continue about SIU's future in both Edwardsville and Carbondale.

Thursday on the House floor, State Rep. Terri Bryant from Murphysboro called for Dunn's immediate resignation.
