Don Wagner Fun Fact #1

Former SOCCCD trustee Don Wagner is running for mayor of Irvine. Perhaps the librarians of Irvine - and the folks who frequent them -  should check out Wagner's views about the American Library Association (ALA).

Back in 2006, as trustee Wagner led the charge to disassociate our colleges from the ALA which he characterized as "Liberal busybodies acting far outside their field of expertise."

Check out the video below to see Don in rabid action with distortions and mischaracterizations and the smug disdain many of us remember well.

By the way, if memory serves, shortly after Don's departure to Sacramento, both colleges were able to rejoin the ALA and now are members in good standing.
