Here are two interesting factoids therein:
The board of trustees conducted their annual organizational meeting and facilities corporation meeting. The new board leadership positions are Tim Jemal, President; Jim Wright, Vice President; and Dave Lang, Clerk.Jemal as President: that's likely a good thing.
. . .
Employment contract for Gary L. Poertner as Chancellor, SOCCCD, effective July 1, 2016 through June 30, 2019.
|It can be fixed, some say|
(the "CEO perspective")
I'm also told that, when Gary P steps down, which will be soon, "big changes" will occur throughout the district, leadershipwise.
Let's hope the BOT gets an outsider for Chance (and for other roles). We need to get away from this sorry crowd.
Am I right?
Re upcoming trustee races: near as I can figure, these four seats are up (for 2016): Jemal, Wright, Lang, Jay. As I recall, Jay promised not to run for office next time around. Yeah.
Prendergast, Whitt, and Milchiker are up in 2018, I believe. Did Whitt make a promise similar to Jay's?
P.S.: [12/23] A wanted to watch the streaming video of Burnett/Roquemore's report on the accreditor's (ACCJC) recent troubles, but I couldn't get the streaming video page (at the district website) to open (it's mostly blank). So I emailed Tere, who said she was off to a vacation or something, and she dropped the matter in someone else's lap. But I still can't get the "streaming video" page to open.
What's up with that?
