Stanislaus Budget Rally

Stanislaus State had their budget rally yesterday, overflowing the conference room with an audience estimated at 300 by the Modesto Bee.

CSUEU Chapter President Frank Borelli made the Bee's article:

It was Gov. Schwarzenegger's proposed $312.9 million cut to the California State University system's budget that united students, faculty and staff in protest at the CSU Stanislaus campus Wednesday. It was a monumental moment for the group, which has never united like this before, said staff union President Frank Borrelli.


If enacted, the proposed cuts could leave a $2.4 million hole in Stanislaus State's 2008-09 budget.

"That's a best-case scenario," Borrelli said.
