News Release: “Lt. Gov. Gavin Newsom’s Statement on the University of California’s Threat to Increase Tuition Fees”

Thursday, November 6th, 2014

It’s on. Here’s Gav’s reply to this recent effort from President Janet Napolitano

***News Release*** - Lt. Gov. Gavin Newsom statement on the University of California’s threat to increase tuition fees

Contact: Andrea Koskey, Communications Director

California Lieutenant Governor Gavin Newsom issued the following statement on the University of California’s threat to increase tuition unless the state appropriates additional funds, thereby breaking its two-year old tuition-freeze agreement negotiated in 2013 in exchange for increased state funding:

The University of California cannot bestow pay raises on its top earners with one hand, while continually taking more from students and their families with the other and deflecting criticism by laying its solution at the door of taxpayers. New funding must be tied to earnest and innovative attempts to reduce the university’s cost structure and promote affordability and accessibility, not threats that reward the status quo.”

Background

The proposed increase to students comes just two months after the same board approved up to 20 percent increases to four chancellors and increased a base salary for a new chancellor by 23 percent of his predecessor. These decisions are not tied to performance or outcomes.

Lieutenant Governor Newsom believes that high-level solutions could be factored in to meet the growing costs.  For instance, UC facilities system-wide could save $500,000 per contract if in-house employment was used over outside contractors; another $160 million could be saved if UC offered an Associate Degree to Transfer Program from California Community Colleges, similar to existing program between community colleges and California State Universities; and millions could be saved if the failed IT implementation of UC Path was addressed. That program’s repayment costs have ballooned to $200 million over the next 20 years.

The University of California system has received numerous increases to financial resources including full funding of State’s Cal grant program; expansion of the middle-income fee grants covering one-half of tuition and fee increases for middle-income students from families earning up to $120,000; 20 percent increase in state funding as part of a multi-year stable funding plan; a 5 percent increase from the 2014-15 state budget contingent a tuition freeze through 2016-17; and $50 million to promote innovative models of higher education at the campus level that result in more bachelor’s degrees, improved four‑year completion rates, and more effective transfers between the community colleges and the universities.

Oh, it’s on. The Contra Costa Times went and done it. They went and  asked every bay area governmental agency they could think of (from “A” for AC Transit to “W” for the City of Woodside), “Hey, how much do all your employees make?” So now, tout le monde, can see how much you (a city, county or other regional government employee) makes in salary by clicking here.

The search screen looks a little like this:

What’s that, you work for the state?  Well then the Sacramento Bee has you covered right here.

Is all this disclosure legal? Hells yes! Why? Because International Federation of Professional and Technical Engineers, Local 21, AFL-CIO v. Superior Court of Alameda County was a 7-0 vote in the California State Supreme Court. Does that mean that you can look up the Supreme Court Justices’ salaries? Yes. Ha! (But they don’t care if you know, srsly.)  

Did some “public health care district” hospital administrator in the East Bay pull down over $800,000 in a year? Yes.

Why? Why not? And, since women only make 59 cents for every dollar men make, shouldn’t her take have been adjusted up 69% to $1,486,000 per year or something? Why not? After all, her job is described as “difficult.”

And her assistants only get paid “from $372,555 to $407,065.”

That’s all.
