Letter from DCCFA President Fred Newbury on the May 7 Board of Trustees Election


On May 7, we have an extremely important Board of Trustees election taking place.  For the first time in many years we have three seats that will be on the ballot to replace retiring Board members.  One thing that has not changed over the years is the importance of the contribution of our elected Board members—they determine policy and provide the leadership that is so important to the District.  This is a very important election and one that will determine the future direction of the DCCCD.

On behalf of our Faculty Association and our Student Government Association, who will co-sponsor the forum, I want to invite and encourage your participation in this democratic process.  As many of you realize, the voter turnout for the May election is very small.  We need the involvement of all—particularly our employees.

I would invite you to visit the DCCFA Blog for more information about the election and the campus events.  We will be posting questions that have been sent to candidates as well as announcing a series of campus forum (dates below) that have been scheduled to allow students, staff and community members get better acquainted with our candidates.  We will welcome your involvement and need your participation—particularly on May 7.  You will also note on the blog that we have information that will help determine your polling place.


Campus Forums:
Eastfield—10:30 am Wednesday, March 30, in Performance Hall (F Building)
Brookhaven—12:00 noon Thursday, April 14, Performance Hall (C Building)
Richland—9:30 am Tuesday, April 19, in Performance Hall (Fannin Building)
