CAC will convene at GCC Board meeting on Jan. 31

The next meeting of the Citizens Awareness Committee (CAC) will be the Gila Community College (GCC) Board meeting at either the Payson or Globe campus, now changed from Thursday, Jan. 27 to Monday, Jan. 31 at 2 p.m.

At this meeting, Bob Ashford, board chairman, will initiate a vote to do away with rules that were established for the GCC Board to follow. Included in these rules are term limits that would not allow Ashford to run for board chairman at this time. With his majority of board members from Globe it is expected the motion will pass, according to a CAC spokesperson.

Rim Country citizens are asked to attend this board meeting to protest during the public input period of the Meeting.

"If Bob Ashford is allowed to be re-elected he will be able to control any action related to our college's independence," said Payson GCC Board Member Tom Loeffler. "This meeting is critical to our efforts in achieving a better college through independence."

The meeting will be held on both campuses through interactive TV.  Seatiing is limited at the Payson Campus.
