Class officer voting is now open

Voting for the Princeton Class of 1999 officer positions is now open. The voting site is driven by the same Reunion Technologies registration system that powered sign-ups for Reunions.

The voting is now closed.

When clicking the link above, you will be directed to the log-in form.  Those who registered for Reunions may sign in with the same credentials; others can use the 10-digit number printed on the Princeton Alumni Weekly mailing label or click a link to retrieve that 10-digit number. There are more detailed instructions on the Reunion Technologies page.

The system will record whether you have voted to prevent you from voting twice, but the details of your vote will be anonymous. Final results will be announced on after 11:59 PM EDT on Tuesday, May 26th.

If you have trouble voting, please e-mail

Please familiarize yourself with the candidate statements below before clicking over to the voting page.

Candidate for President

Josh Pollack
It’s been a terrific five-year whirlwind serving as your Class President, and I want to thank all of you for the opportunity. This job has allowed me to reconnect with many old friends, and connect with many of you for the first time. We’ve accomplished so much as a class during that period, and it’s been a privilege to play a small role in the much larger work being done by our class volunteers – from our Annual Giving army to our tireless Reunions Committee to those of you who have taken the time to attend a class event or simply keep in touch with a small group of classmates. It would be an honor to continue serving as your President. See you at the Derby!

Candidates for Vice-President

Brad Hart
As we prepare for our 10th Reunion, I’m amazed at how quickly time has passed since graduation. As much as I miss our time at Princeton, I’m thankful for every opportunity I have to spend time with other ’99ers. As Class Vice President for the past 5 years, I’ve planned our popular off-year Reunions receptions and organized regional events. At these events, I’m continually amazed with all of the exciting things that members of our class have accomplished. I have enjoyed serving the class as Vice President and as the co-chair of our fifth Reunion and would like to continue serving the class by organizing and planning more class events over the next five years. I’m excited to reconnect with all of you at Reunions and want to build off our 10th to find new ways to bring the class even closer together.

Gary Pai
Class officers are for bringing the class together to do fun stuff and contribute to the larger community. Even spread out across the globe, we can connect more regularly and stay in touch. As president of the alumni association in NYC, I’ve helped organize many activities including mixers, wine tastings, and a trip to the zoo. I have the energy, the commitment, and the enthusiasm to serve our class as VP and I’d like to do more!

As VP, I’d work to organize mini-reunions in different parts of the world, volunteer projects, family-oriented events, and ski trips to some of the world’s best slopes. Let’s strengthen our connections and create memories through new P99 experiences. Please vote for Gary Pai as your new VP.

Candidates for Secretary

Julie Angell and Emily (Koster) Walling [co-candidates]
P’99 Class Notes – May 2009

Julie Angell and Emily (Koster) Walling, Reunions-planning maniacs, have got the “goin’ back” bug.

They write to say they’d love to be the Class of ‘99’s new Class Secretary. They want to hear about your weddings, babies, new jobs, book deals, advanced degrees, exotic treks, your Dad’s vineyard, your moves to Philly, Hong Kong, or the Bay Area — and more.

Both ladies also want to see more classmates re-connecting. Says EKW: I’ve been involved with Princeton forever; promoting class get-togethers is my thing!” Says JA: “I especially love hearing about ’99 get-togethers in places like Laos , L.A., and Buenos Aires . Invitations are welcome – I mean, just look at these cheeks!”

So put us to work, and let’s stay connected, ’99. Thanks for your time!

Bob Smiley
As a writer who has worked in TV sitcoms, I’m used to an audience with a short attention span. As someone who has done some freelance magazine writing, I hate typos. As a married man with two kids, I appreciate a nice wedding shot and a good baby photo. And as a Princeton alum who finds himself unemployed far too often, I always have plenty of time on my hands. Put these together and I’d like to think I’d make a perfect Class Secretary. (Endorsed by outgoing Secretary Sharon Sampson).

Candidate for Treasurer

Ken Lee
Ken is an avid ’99er and is looking forward to seeing you at our tenth reunion (Ken’s 14th in a row, 10th with a cowbell). He’s also proud of his flawless alumni giving record. He has been active planning this year’s Tentucky Derby as a co-chair on the Technology and P-Rade committees. As an engineer and manager, Ken is familiar with creating, managing, stewarding, and ethically controlling budgets. For the tenth reunion, Ken managed the reunion’s registration website, quickly responding to user requests and managing credit card transactions and refunds. It would honor Ken to serve as 1999’s treasurer.
