Communications from

the Audience Ms. Linda Evers, President of California School Employees Association

(CSEA), Chapter 490, addressed her concerns regarding the promotions and

salary increases for administration that were approved by the Board on tonight's agenda. She referred to the atmosphere of frustration and anger among employees.

The CSEA feels that negotiations with the District have been stalled at this point.

He added that the SEIU is aware of reorganization, but the promotions and

salary raises for administration is a "big pill to swallow."

several members attended the Town Hall Meeting on May 21. She thanked

Dr. Hogue for his dedication to the College during his tenure and wished him

well. She also noted that a majority of the Board members have attended the committee meetings and all have spoken at the meetings. She believes this to

be a violation of the Brown Act.

Trustee Award to Ms. Lily Nguyen for her outstanding academic achievements
