At our meeting last Thursday, almost 100 Cal Dems signed letters urging their representatives to protect higher education in California.
We told Sacramento to look for new revenues–including tobacco and oil severance fees–before squeezing students, faculty, and the future of our state. Our message was clear: we would rather have affordable education than affordable cigarettes.
This was a great first step, but it won’t be our last. Education is too important to fail.
