2 U of L trustees withdraw support for President Ramsey

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) – Two University of Louisville trustees have announced they’re withdrawing their support for university President James Ramsey.

Trustee Steve Campbell said he is making the change “with all due respect.” Another trustee, Craig Greenburg, said a resolution last fall supporting Ramsey is being used as leverage by Ramsey’s defenders.

The Courier-Journal reports the comments came during a meeting Thursday. Ramsey declined to speak to reporters afterward but said in a statement that the two trustees of 20 are entitled to their point of view, adding that he disagrees with them about how to best provide a quality education.

Board Chairman Larry Benz said after the meeting he supports Ramsey but thinks the powers of the president need to be “decentralized.”

Trustee Ron Butt said briefly that he strongly opposes a proposal that would remove Ramsey as foundation president.
