Murray State University: Cancel Senator Mitch McConnell's commencement address

    1. Petition by

      Ditch Mitch Murray State

Mitch McConnell will be speaking at Murray State's commencement on May 11, 2013. Why should the graduating class of 2013 have to sit through a commencement address from an elected official that doesn't care about students?

      Makes me dread hearing him speak at my graduation. I should be excited for the day and he ruins it.

      Phil Schooley

      Mitch McConnell embodies the worst aspects of government; censorship, limitations on civil rights, broad-reaching government police powers, anti-education, anti-science, anti-higher education, fear-mongering, and typifies precisely why no...

      We've already had his wife. Why not get someone from the other side of the aisle.

      Why is this petition about something that happened (or not) May 13, 2013, being circulated seven months later, in December 2013?

      This is just another opportunity for Mitch McConnell to spew his lies for free when he has plenty of corporate sponsors to pay for his rhetoric. I admire the students who have the backbone to make a stand. I've graduated from MSU with a BS & MS degree & Mitch wouldn't support the petition I currently have for sure. Please take a minute to read my comments as the first signer & author & sign & encourage everyone you can to sign & share as well. http://signon.org/sign/standard-tax-deduction

      Because I believe Mitch only serves for his own purposes and does not care about the people he is supposed to be serving.

      He does not represent my views for fairness to the people of Kentucky and the USA. Also, he has consistently voted against measures that would benefit MSU and other public schools.

      He doesn't fairly represent students and teachers!
