The Foothill-De Anza Community College District seeks district residents to serve on its Measure C Citizens’ Bond Oversight Committee.
Volunteers are needed to fill two-year terms in four capacities:
• At-large representative
• Taxpayer association representative
• Business organization representative
• Foothill-De Anza auxiliary organization representative
The seven-member committee reviews expenditures associated with the $490.8 million bond measure approved by district voters in 2006 and reports annually to the public and the board of trustees on the implementation of the Measure C bond program.
The committee meets quarterly. New members would be seated in January.
Applicants must reside within district boundaries, which include the cities of Los Altos, Los Altos Hills, Mountain View, Palo Alto, Cupertino, Sunnyvale and parts of San Jose, Santa Clara and Saratoga. District employees, contractors, consultants or vendors are not eligible to serve.
“I have enjoyed serving on the committee because I have had the opportunity to work with interesting and intelligent people, both fellow committee members and staff members of the colleges,” said Chairman Dudley G. Andersen. “I’ve been able to represent the community by providing oversight and feedback on the use of bond funds to create facilities that bring the colleges continuing recognition as leaders in community education and also offer exceptional learning environments for students.”
Members who will be leaving the committee at the end of the year include Andersen, at-large representative; Robert Lancefield, taxpayer association representative; David Bergman, business organization representative; and Anita Manwani Bhagat, auxiliary organization representative.
Continuing on the committee are William Dietz, senior citizens’ organization representative; Susan Silver, at-large representative; and Etienne Bowie, student representative.
