Lucas Chosen as Presidential Election Panel Participant

DeWayne Lucas, assistant professor of political science, has been chosen as one of six people to be chronicled by the Finger Lakes Times during the upcoming presidential elections. Over the next 10 months, the six will share their feelings and opinions as the campaign to elect our president unfolds. The other panel members are Bob Hussar, a retired accountant; Greg Lavin, a consultant and home care manager for the elderly; Doug Lippincott, director of communications at Keuka College; Anna Quinn, a senior at Mynderse Academy; and Rosario Vivado-Millington, a federal and state bilingual certified court interpreter.

Panelists' ties to the Colleges don't end with Lucas, however; Quinn is enrolled to attend William Smith in fall 2004 and Vivando-Millington's husband is Thomas Millington, a political science professor emeritus. Vivando-Millington also finished her B.A. at William Smith, receiving the degree in 1974. The group is featured in the Jan. 18 Finger Lakes Times story “Picking a president: Residents to follow campaign.” The follow-up story from the Iowa caucuses ran in the Jan. 20 Finger Lakes Times, titled “Results surprise Times' panelists.” The follow-up story on President Bush's State of the Union address was published Jan. 21. The story addressing the New Hampshire debates ran Jan. 23.
