New Jersey Governors Office: Reinstate Tim Pernetti

      Somerset, NJ

 

Mr. Pernetti's recent "resignation" was due to media scrutiny over the handling of basketball coach Mike Rice's behavior with his team. Mr. Pernetti sought out and took action deemed appropriate by himself as well as the administration and executive staff at Rutgers. It was only after he lost his trial of public opinion did Rutgers President Robert L. Barchi ask for Mr. Pernetti's resignation.

 

Mr. Rice's actions were inappropriate to say the least however Rutgers board approved disciplinary action was taken. The forced resignation of Mr. Pernetti has taken a bad situation and made it exponentially worse. Mr.Pernetti is not only good for Rutgers Athletics, He is good for the college as a whole as well as the state of New Jersey.

 

Correct the injustice that was done and re-instate Tim Pernetti.

To:
New Jersey Governors Office, New Jersey Governor Chris Christie
Robert L. Barchi, President Rutgers University
New Jersey Governor
New Jersey State Senate
New Jersey State House
Reinstate Tim Pernetti

Sincerely,
[Your name]

      Tim led with integrity, intelligence and passion. Rutgers is being manhandled by the media.

      It appears that Tim was going to fire Coach Rice, but through the investigative process the decision was made to suspend/fine by the powers to be and Tim followed through accordingly. Tim should not have been "forced" to resign under these circumstances.

      Mr. Pernetti is the epitome of Rutgers athletics and a main contributor to the "Family" atmosphere. He is every reason why Rutgers athletics were heading in the right direction.
