If the college is looking for money to fund more classes, it should consider the medical benefits that the Trustees receive. The Trustees, such as Truett work about 5 hours a month (the rest of the time they have "off"). It's a pretty sweet deal to get medical coverage.
How much money would suspending these health benefits provide for classes and services? I'd like to see the numbers.
If the Trustees are truly serving the community, and not in it for the benefits, this would be a small sacrifice on their part. What about it George?
A third thing stands out:
Brooks got 30% of precinct vote and Rodoni got 28%. Compared to Rodoni 38%, Brooks 21% for mail-in. The other precincts could give Brooks enough to be a contender for November.
From a student perspective, one needs to understand that spending money on a campus life director, spending money to pay the salary of a VP who is on administrative leave, spending money on a variety of consultants to pontificate on obvious issues such as "the mission" all take money away from instruction. Students will see a very lean schedule this fall. Consider how funds are being spent and if you would rather have more courses offered by part-time faculty at the times that fit your schedule, or if you'd rather have campus life, consultants, and administrators on paid leave. It all comes down to management, or lack thereof.
Seems like you guys should start your own CR blog and stop filling up the NCJ space. Sounds a lot like the same 3 or 4 people talking to each other and a lot of preaching to the choir . Do you think many other people are reading this on a daily basis? Just email each other, it would be quicker.
