Opinion: Stephen Gill can help guide the selection of the next WCC president
We have long served the community as staff, volunteers, and board members of various community non-profit organizations providing important public services. Our experience makes it clear that thoughtful, careful, experienced, and committed leadership is essential to the successful operation of any public body.
We are supporting Stephen J. Gill in his bid for re-election to a seat on the Washtenaw Community College Board of Trustees. Six years ago Steve brought his experiences in higher education and consulting to the board.
During his service as a WCC Trustee, and as current board chair, he has demonstrated his understanding of the careful balance that must be struck providing leadership, but also, facilitating the work of capable staff and volunteers.
During next year trustees will hire a new president at WCC. Having Steve Gill guide that process will ensure the college’s stability, growth, and vitality into the future. At a time when there is tremendous pressure on our educational institutions to improve the economy and educate a higher percentage of our citizens, we need Steve's proven leadership at the helm of our Community College. Please join us in voting the whole ballot on November 2, 2010 and supporting Stephen J. Gill for re-election to the WCC Board of Trustees. Molly Resnik John Martin Ann Arbor
