Tom Curtis: A question for Kevin Boyce

From Tom Curtis, January 15, 2010
Subject: 011510 Appointment Of STRS Board Member
State Treasurer Boyce,
Congratulations on finally appointing the 11th board member to the STRS board, Dr. Daniel J. Martin.
I have read Dr. Martin's vitae and found absolutely no reference to his being an investment specialist. Was that not to be the major criteria for the person you appointed?
In your response to my letter to your office many months ago, requesting that you appoint Dr. Dennis Leone to the board, your comments clearly indicated that you were unable to appoint Dr. Leone because he was not an investment specialist and that was the criteria you were following.
Please sir, would you kindly validate your reasoning for your appointment of someone that is not an investment specialist.
I look forward to your response,
Thomas Curtis
