S.C. trustee responds

I’m afraid that (letter-writer, “Ramirez a victim,” April 14) letter in The Union makes little sense when confronted with the facts. His claim that “our Sierra College board of trustees was selected on a Republican-funded platform to defeat future construction of Sierra College in Grass Valley” is patently false.

While I am a Republican and proudly accepted the support of the Nevada County Republican Party, I was supported by thousands of independents and Democrats who wanted to see us bring accountability back to Sierra College.

I also was a firm supporter of the Measure G effort to double the size of the Nevada County campus. With these new facilities, students who were driving down to South Placer to get all of their classes in one place will now have a fuller complement of classes to choose from, right in Grass Valley.

It’s time to get the facts straight about Sierra College. After several tough months, we’re now in the position to build the facilities we need to serve our students, restore fiscal accountability, and put students, teachers and taxpayers first.
