Bye Bye Theobald!

15 Now and Stadium Stompers welcome the removal of Neil Theobald from the presidency of Temple University. Theobald ignored the voices of community, workers, students and faculty forcing us to protest in order to be heard. Throughout his tenure Theobald’s policies harmed North Philadelphia, a historic black community, by furthering gentrification and displacement and by refusing to pay workers at Temple a living wage of $15/hour. We hope that whoever the board chooses as his replacement will approach the community with dignity and respect. The board must now abandon President Theobald’s disastrous proposal to build a stadium in North Philadelphia.
