Editor, James Keller, Executive Vice Chancellor of San Mateo County Community College District($188,000/yr.) filed the pre-election campaign disclosure statement for "Citizen's for Support of Community Colleges in San Mateo County". He and Ron Galatolo($240,000/yr.), Chancellor of the District, are Treasurer and Principal Officer respectively of that organization.
Those of you who have received the glitzy mailings urging you to vote YES on Measure G should take a look at this statement. The contributor list reads like a Who's Who of businesses seeking or having contracts with the District. And as expected, the San Mateo Community College Foundation headed by Stephanie Scott(on the District payroll at $148,000/yr.), plunked down $64,260 in this effort to ram the parcel tax down the taxpayer's throat! I thought foundations raised money from willing givers.
More than $184,000 has been raised from these beneficiaries of District largesse!
I urge voters to toss those glitzy mailers and VOTE NO on Measure G!
