The quote about cuts attributed to me in the article concerning budget woes does not accurately reflect my views or the comments I made to the author of the article. I do believe it is highly unlikely that any salaries will be reduced due to the budget shortfall. The Budget and Liaison Committee continues to examine the implications of the current budget shortfall and possible adjustments to the budget. As chair of the committee, I understand that these adjustments may include reductions in positions in all areas, including administration, faculty, and support staff.
