Thank you for your most recent editorial about our community college district regarding our chancellor search and Board of Trustees' (Trustee Area 5) recent resignation due to his health.
We completely agree with your opinion that residents should be informed about not only our community college district, but also of all of our public agencies. Residents are always welcomed to attend our monthly Board of Trustees meetings and our Measure A/B Citizens Oversight Committee meetings. You may find meeting location information on our website.
Additionally, as we advised, last month, to the Pleasanton Weekly in communications with their reporter, the changes in our interim chancellor, for the past few months, were necessitated by the rules regulated by the state's retirement laws, which limits the amount of time each of those (retired) individuals were allowed to work full-time for our district.
The changes in interim chancellor leadership were not related to dissatisfaction with their performance, but instead mandated by state retirement law. Fortunately, Mr. Gerhard, our current interim chancellor, is not retired, so he can work normal hours for a longer period of time, as stated in his contract.
