Rosie Garcia gave us her word that everybody will keep their JOBS?

Changes at Del Mar have faculty concerned

CORPUS CHRISTI - Del Mar College plans to rearrange some of its departments this year, and that has a lot of faculty members concerned. In fact, they called a meeting Friday asking the administration to explain what's going on.

The administration said it's a matter of making changes to the college's flow chart - the organizational chart. But concerned faculty and employees don't all see it that way.

Friday they packed a room on campus and many sounded off before Dr. Rosie Garcia, Vice President of Instruction. She told 6 News she can't recall such a heated faculty council meeting. Garcia said the changes basically include who reports to who on the organizational chart.

She said the students will still have the same teachers, the same programs, etc. She also wants to put to rest the fears some have that they'll end up with a pink slip.

"Nobody's lost their job. Nobody's lost any pay because of these changes. These are just organizational shifts, reporting structures," Garcia said.

Dolores Huerta has taught business at Del Mar College for many years. She said she's not against change, but maintains the process this time of changing the organizational structure wasn't done right.

"The way that this has all been done. Those of us at the faculty level don't feel like we have been given an opportunity to provide input. Some of us had heard rumors across campus that this was happening, but at no time did we faculty, individual faculty, receive anything official until it was all done," Huerta said.

Huerta will be moved to a new division because the Division of Business at Del Mar has been done away with, under the new organizational structure.

It's being moved under a different umbrella, to be announced.

Del Mar administrators maintain all classes, including business courses, will go on as usual, despite the changes to the organizational chart.

The Secretary of State cleared her to run.

I think these guys are going to learn a lesson or two....

from the attorney general down. The Secretary of State cleared Ms Garcia to run. If you read the AG opinion you will know what a crook this guy is when it comes to the little people. Carlos Valdez, I cant see how he would obtain Jurisdiction given there is no criminal act. This matter should be processed through existing administrative law.

The question is, which home was her domicile. I have been to her Apartment here in Corpus Christi, it sure looks like it is her primary residence.

I cannot imagine Carlos Valdez even having anything to do with this case, given his history with Mike Westergren and I am told with Joe Alaniz as well.

If Carlos Valdez prosecutes this lady, he is a fool.

I stand behind her.
