President Obama plans to nominate Collins to St. Lawrence Seaway board


President Barack Obama plans to nominate Clarkson University President Anthony G. Collins to the advisory board of the St. Lawrence Seaway Development Corp.

In a White House release about several administration posts, President Obama said, “I am pleased to announce that these experienced and committed individuals have agreed to join this administration, and I look forward to working with them in the months and years ahead.”

With U.S. Senate consent, Mr. Collins will join a five-member presidential-appointed advisory board to review the Seaway’s policies and advise Administrator Betty Sutton. Mr. Collins said in a statement he was honored by the nomination.

“The Seaway is a globally significant strategic asset with unparalleled opportunities to advance and balance international trade, world-class recreation and environmental stewardship,” he said.
