SBCC Trustees Elect Board Officers

Santa Barbara City College’s Board of Trustees elected board officers last week at its annual organizational meeting. In a somewhat heated discussion that fell along the same old line of division between the four most recently elected trustees (Peter Haslund, Marty Blum, Lisa Macker, and Marcia Croninger) and the three longer-serving ones (Joan Livingstone, Morris Jurkowitz, Luis Villegas), the board reelected Haslund as president and instated Macker as the new vice president, both of whom first won their seats at the trustee table in 2010. Villegas, a trustee since 1993 and the most recent VP of the board, was on the losing side of the small-scale power struggle.
