Florida Atlantic University deserves a better leader than Randy Fine

Rep.  Randy Fine, R-Brevard County

The editorial reflects the views of the Palm Beach Post editorial board, not the Post newsroom.

State Rep. Randy Fine of R-Brevard County said Gov. Ron DeSantis approached him to run for president of Florida Atlantic University.

Terrible choice.

Universities are for open minds, which neither he nor DeSantis learned at Harvard. Fine is proudly closed-minded, which he has proven in many ways.

He co-sponsored DeSantis’ “Stop WOKE” law, which limits classroom discussions of America’s racial history. It demonstrates that he is more comfortable perpetuating America’s Dark Ages than waking up and acknowledging the continuing impacts of slavery, and celebrating the social renaissance of the past decades while deepening the hard work that remains to be done.
