Diversity in the boardroom (Editorial, Dec. 22) seems a good thing, but state Treasurer Deborah Goldberg should not be using “the Commonwealth’s $61 billion pension fund to make a stand on corporate diversity.” She has a fiduciary duty to protect the value and security of the pension fund for the benefit of taxpayers and pensioners, of which I am both, rather than to pursue goals of political correctness.

In addition, it's no surprise that Steve Mader, an official of an executive recruiting firm, is in favor of term limits and more turnover for directors. I'd value the advice more from someone who wasn't likely to benefit from it.
