Allan Hancock College Seeks Community Members for its Measure I Citizens' Oversight Committee

Six open positions are available

FEBRUARY 14, 2019--Allan Hancock College invites qualified candidates to apply for appointment to the Allan Hancock Joint Community College District’s Measure I Citizens’ Oversight Committee (COC).

As required by law, the COC provides oversight to ensure that Measure I bond revenues are expended only for purposes authorized by law. To be considered for appointment, applicants are required to complete an application form, meet stated qualifications and have both a strong sense of civic responsibility and an active interest in community college education.

The oversight committee formed in November 2006 following the June 2006 passage of Measure I, the $180 million bond measure approved by voters to implement a capital improvement program for Allan Hancock College. The COC has six open positions: two student positions, one position each from a business organization, a senior organization, and the taxpayers association, and one community at-large member.

“We have been fortunate to have an excellent group of committed citizens who take seriously their oversight role,” said Allan Hancock College Superintendent/President Kevin G. Walthers, Ph.D. “The Measure I funding is helping to transform Allan Hancock College, and this committee is important to ensure the public is informed and involved in the process. I encourage anyone who is interested in the work we are doing – for students and this community – to submit an application.”

Members who are leaving the committee after completing their service include: Tim Bennett, community at-large representative; Jade Fuller, student representative; Hugh Rafferty, member of the taxpayers association; David Richardson, member of a business organization; and Bill Thompson, member of a senior organization.   

Upon recommendation by Walthers, and confirmation by the Allan Hancock College Board of Trustees at a regular meeting, the new members will serve one- or two-year terms, with the opportunity to renew their term one time.

Citizens’ Oversight Committee meetings are held twice a year.

Those interested in applying may complete and submit the online application available on the college’s Citizens’ Oversight Committee webpage, or request a print application from the President’s office by calling 1-805-922-6966 ext. 3454. The President’s office is located in the Administration building (bldg. B) on the Santa Maria campus.
