Dear Colleague,

I am requesting your support for as your representative to the Faculty 
Senate. The reason I want to serve is that I want to fight for faculty 
rights and fair governance. The Faculty Senate is the right platform for 
that. A quick summary of me:

  * I joined Mason in 2000. Tenured in 2006. Served as Undergrad Program
    Director / Associate Chair of CEIE for 8 years
  * I have extensive knowledge of the system - undergraduate and
    graduate education, program administration, P&T process, faculty
    matters - more importantly, the history of VSE.
  * I am a registered professional engineer and I am governed by the
    engineers code of ethics, which puts the interests of the public
    above all. In this case, as a senator I will look out for the best
    interest of the faculty at large.
  * I have the ability, willingness and a history of speaking truth to
    the power.

Thank you for your consideration.

-Mohan Venigalla
