Marsee states that the faculty have been running the show for the last ten years. Where'd you hear that from. Here's the truth at least over the last, maybe seven years. Crabill may have had faculty in Admin roles but they were totally loyal to her. They helped her keep track of faculty opposition so she could deal with those "roque" faculty members and Admin who were not following her toxic, pied piper song that nearly ran the college into the ground. She could marginalize them before those dissenters could garner enough opposition to stop her pet projects that were jepardizing the solvency of the institution. Thank goodness ACCJC stepped up since the Board was happily dancing to her toxic beat. Sure when she left there was a void in leadership but, Tom Harris stepped in and taught those that remained that real leadership in an institution is owned by every member, down to the Maintenance Staff. The enrollment numbers improved, ACCJC recommendations were being addressed in unprecendented ways. The only thing Marsee needed to do was bring some oversight to the Facilities Master Plan. There was still major problems with collaboration and transparency. He also needed to finish getting the mechanisms in place to build the Educational Master Plan. Instead he's decided to take the college from this community and make it all his, just like Casey did. I can't believe the Board is so blind to see that this is Casey Crabill in a gentlemen's suit. He gives them glitz and glamour of expansion to new instructional sites (expensive overhead) when, according to Marsee himself, we are underutilizing our current sites. Forcing expansion of offerrings in areas where there is not enough faculty to cover our current filling sections let alone, the additional evening sections he demands we add. Evening sessions that always have less enrollment then their daytime counterparts. The only difference I have seen with Marsee is that he lacks the interpersonal relationship skills to conduct his hostile take-over, to pad his resume, under the radar. It appears however, that the Board learned nothing from what happened with Casey Crabill. Here we go again... Please Board WAKE UP, before it is too late.
