SB 190 and AB 1413: Tell the Governor to Sign!

This message was sent out today by Pat Gantt:

Dear CSUEU Board member and activist:

Today I attended a press conference by Senator Leland Yee and Assemblyman Anthony Portantino. The purpose of the press conference was to urge Governor Schwarzenegger to sign SB 190 and AB 1413. The labor community and the students turned out in support of both measures. I was among the following people expressing support for the bills and urging the governor to sign them into law:

  • Courtney Weaver - UC Student Association
  • Derick Lennox - Associated Students of UC-Davis
  • Roberto Torres - California State Student Association
  • Lillian Taiz - President, California Faculty Association
  • Gale Price, Executive Treasurer, AFSCME, Local 3299
  • Joe Kiskis, Vice President, Council of UC faculty Associations
  • Jon Skiles, Executive Board, State Employee’s Trades Council
  • Jim Ewert, California Newspaper Publishers Association

It is crucial that each of you and your friends take the time to contact the Governor and voice support for SB 190 and AB 1413 and bring accountability into the administrations of public higher education. Here is the contact information:

  • Use the governor's web site to send him an email: http://gov.ca.gov/interact
  • Call his office at: 916-445-2841
  • Send him a FAX at: 916-445-4633

Please share this information with members and co-workers.

In Union,

Pat Gantt, President
