Millage Results and Thank You

Below is the email I sent to the MCCC family after the election results came out last Tuesday. I remain positive and eager to move on to the next challenge.

Dear MCCC Family,

I hope you are all well on this post-election day. I am sure you may know by now that our millage request was unsuccessful. I was disappointed by the results but remain enthusiastic (and positive) about the future. This election was not a referendum on MCCC and the quality of programs we provide here and the many lives that we continue to transform and enrich.

Thanks to all of you who worked so hard on this campaign. This is a quality institution with quality people in a quality community. I woke up this morning eager to come to work and face new challenges to take MCCC and this entire community to the next level. We fought the good fight, the struggle continues, and we shall overcome (l know, lots of clichés).

I want to also take this opportunity to congratulate the winners of the Board of Trustees election, Bill Braunlich, Mary Kay Thayer, and Lynnette Dowler. I look forward to working with them and the other Board members as we regroup and take on new challenges together.

  1. Dr. Kojo,
    After talking with some community members and found one, (yea unsound) reason against the millage was the new building. “If you can afford a new building, you don’t need the money,” was a common refrain. If we forward another millage, I suggest we emphasize the source of funds, and more importantly the need. One can’t work on solar technology in class rooms set up for radio repair. Perhaps inviting the public to our campus to see the solar arrays and other features of our forward going college. I’m really a good Monday morning quarterback. Pete
