Who knows how many staff and faculty got screwed out of retirement . . . or how many students' continued education has been put on hold . . . 

. . . as the tax payers of the state of Washington continue to pay Janet Gulickson's bills.

Seeya 'round town, Moscow, because . . .

> President Janet Gulickson dropped a bomb on the students, staff, and faculty of the Pullman campus last week. At a social on the Pullman campus Gulickson blurted out that she intended to close the branch by fall. She brought the faculty to tears telling them that they would be not offered jobs at main campus. She panicked students who planned on attending Pullman SFCC in the fall because financial aid deadlines have passed and attending another college would now be impossible. At this social Gulickson did not and could not provide any numbers demonstrating how citing how closing the Pullman Campus would help with the SFCC financial deficit. She blamed software glitches, declining enrollment (not so in Pullman), and shrinking state funding as reasons behind her decision to close Pullman. Of course, she took no responsibility for SFCC's financial problems, nor did she offer any sort of solution to the students', staff or faculty's plight. Her decision to close Pullman is a result of poor fiscal planning bordering on malfeasance. The CCS Board of Directors should look carefully at the actions and performance of Gulickson, and indeed chancellor Christine Johnson to whom she reports.
