Watch out Delta College: your surplus will turn into a deficit before you know it. There's nothing Marsee loves to do more than to treat the taxpayer's money like its his own personal piggy bank.
Nice try puttin' lipstick on a pig, Marsee. You are beneath contempt for what you've done to CR.
I like the part in the Stockton article when Marsee describes working at CR as a "living nightmare." Why burn your bridges when you can blow your bridges up?
Your criticisms of the WCG have nothing to do with the fact that the Brown Act might have been broken. Who would would one go to for an investigation about this possible violation of State law?
I personally welcome the DA and the Chancellor's Office to investigate the many misdeeds at CR--most especially Marsee's and the Board's illegal misuse and hiding of publicly accountable funds. If Truett actually gets his request for a formal investigation, it will surely come back to bite him. He will come to regret his reactionary shortsightedness and his blind hatred of the institution he is supposed to protect.
PUBLIC CONTRACT CODE
The provisions of this article shall apply to contracts by community college districts as provided for in Part 49 (commencing with Section 81000) of the Education Code.
(a) The governing board of any community college district shall let any contracts involving an expenditure of more than fifty thousand dollars ($50,000) for any of the following:
(1) The purchase of equipment, materials, or supplies to be
furnished, sold, or leased to the district.
(2) Services, except construction services.
(3) Repairs, including maintenance as defined in Section 20656, that are not a public project as defined in subdivision (c) of Section 22002.
The contract shall be let to the lowest responsible bidder who shall give security as the board requires, or else reject all bids.
(b) The governing board shall let any contract for a public project, as defined in subdivision (c) of Section 22002, involving an expenditure of fifteen thousand dollars ($15,000) or more to the
lowest responsible bidder who shall give security as the board requires, or else reject all bids. All bids for construction work shall be presented under sealed cover and shall be accompanied by one of the following forms of bidder's security:
(2) A cashier's check made payable to the community college district.
(3) A certified check made payable to the community college district.
(4) A bidder's bond executed by an admitted surety insurer, made payable to the community college district.
An investigation into the awarding of the illegal no-bid contract to JAG architects for the Garberville site would be a start.
