ICCTA Action Alert
Feb. 20, 2001
Today's Chicago Tribune features a scathing
editorial attacking Gov. George Ryan's proposed capital improvement program for community colleges.
Among the paper's claims:
But reality is that none of them (community colleges) is in dire financial
straits, and some of them are fatter than hogs. The community college board has seen
its budget increase 11 percent since fiscal year 1999.
The full text of this editorial can be viewed on the Tribune web site at:
ICCTA is urging trustees, presidents, and friends of community colleges to contact the
Tribune ASAP and protest its incorrect portrayal of our colleges' capital needs.
Letters should be sent to:
Voice of the People
435 N. Michigan Ave.
Chicago, IL 60611
Please be sure to send copies of any correspondence to the Trustees Association.
Thank for your advocacy on behalf of our system!
