Glad you chose to share with us only the "lighter note."


On a lighter note:

There is a show called, "Undercover Boss", that airs Sunday nights. As the title suggests, bosses of fairly large companies go undercover at their own business to see how the rank and file do their jobs. They are all humbled by the end of the process and vow to make changes for the good for their employees.

I laugh every time I watch this show because I imagine Larson going under cover. I imagine his reaction to the anxiety, stress, & fear that he has created at OCC. I imagine that he would be delighted to know that nearly every worker hates coming to work and detests him.

If Larson could be half the man that some of the CEOs on the show are, then OCC would return to being a decent place to work. I don't think that he has one shred of humility or humanity in his body. Karma can you hear us?

Then they came for the Jews, but I was not a Jew so I did not speak out. And when they came for me, there was no one left to speak out for me."

I am posting a letter to the Board of Trustees on this site because at a public meeting I was treated with incivility by several members of the College Administration and the Board Chair. They were in violation of their own policy on"Civility"

Mr. Thulin:

You might want to review the College “Civility statement with regards to how I was treated at the Board Meeting on Monday, November 8, 2010 while speaking with vested authority of ANJCCF: Association of County College faculties. ANJCCF is an Affiliation of the NJEA, which represents the interest of New Jersey County College Faculty. It has been active for more than 36 years.

The College “Civility Statement” is supposed to guarantee the following:

1. Courteous discourse Honest interactions and utterances
2. Fair and just treatment
3. Integrity and keeping promises
4. Open professional communications
5. Diversity, professionalism, and collegiality
6. Free expression of views without meanness or a desire to do harm
7. Tolerance of differing points of view

I was not given this civility during my presentation. In fact, I was interrupted at least four times during the public comment session. Ms. Tara Kelly who is not a Board member was way out of line in interrupting my presentation and challenging unwarrantedly, my ANJCCF credentials.

I was speaking the truth about serious issues at Ocean County College as a Trustee and officer of ANJCCF. One of the most important Calls for Action by ANJCCF was: “ANJCCF call upon the College Board and to work with the Faculty Association to establish and implement a blueprint for a more collegial environment at Ocean County College.”

ANJCCF was calling upon the Board of Trustees to work together to resolve crucial issues and find common ground for a healthy campus environment. How can there be such hostility for such noble goals.
