By now many Californians have likely received, filled out and either mailed or dropped off their 2020 election ballot to an official ballot drop box or voting location. It is critical that we all vote in this upcoming election, not only for the United States President, but for state and local ballot measures. This November, Californians will determine the fate of 12 state propositions, two of which could have a substantial impact on California Community Colleges: propositions 15 and 16.
On November 1st, I participated in an Informational Hearing of the Senate Budget and Fiscal Review Subcommittee on the status and implementation of Senator Marty Block’s 2014 legislation establishing the community college baccalaureate degree pilot program. The hearing took place at San Diego City College’s Corporate Education Center and was hosted by Chancellor Constance Carroll and the San Diego Community College District.
