Candidate Fowler had this to say during a conversation with Walter Gomez.
“Repeatedly I find myself saying “cohesion” is one of my goals for YCCD. There has been division between the board, administration, faculty, staff and students. It is impossible to effectively and efficiently serve the students of the college with such a lack of cohesion, a component of which is relationship building. This can be achieved through strategic planning and implementation as the current plan is due for revision since it covers the years of 2007-2011. Also I would like to take critical and analytical look into what is happening with Measure J and how this project will come to fruition.”
