( The Ventura County Star chose this story for their recent article on the accreditation problems for Oxnard, Ventura, and Moorpark.)


I don't have much to say about the local Community College district risking their accreditation because of what appears to be the actions of one member. If you haven't followed the issue read this article.


What I find shocking is that his supporters demanded that he gets promoted. They want to promote to a higher position of influence the man that has been identified as a major cause of the accreditation problem.

If you read a few of the articles on the consequences of his actions you will notice that he is often unavailable for comment. I would like to read his full explanation to being blamed for the Accreditation issue.

Art Hernandez, all of our community colleges are important. It is your duty to serve the students of all of the campuses.

My take on the above-referenced article (and this is all I've read on the issue) is that it was the commission that over-reacted and placed the well-being of the students in jeopardy...simply to flex their muscle and make a point.

I would think the commission's first responsibility is to the students and their academic well-being. Hernandez's failure to show up at a meeting could have been dealt with directly, not by punishing students, faculties,staffs and placing the future of those campuses in jeopardy.

This buffoon needs to go! He clearly is not doing what's in the best interest of all 3 Community Colleges. All he does is whine and cry about Oxnard College at the Board of Trustee meetings. Who died and left him the crusader for Oxnard College?

This is the same guy who is so out to lunch that he lost his District-issued credit card and allowed whoever found it to charge up a storm to the District (as if it wasn't having enough budget problems already).

All he needed to do was to show up at an important training session that he knew about well in advance. But, instead, he disrespectfully blew the Commission off and, as a result, all 3 Colleges have been placed on probation.

I hope the voters will keep this in mind when this idiot runs for reelection. I hope we toss him out on his ear!

I agree 100%. This guy needs to go. As if our community colleges aren't having enough trouble offering the curriculum students need due to budget cuts, this idiot single-handedly puts them in a further bind by getting them placed on probation. The Commission called his behavior at Board meetings "disruptive." What a complete jerk!

He either doesn't know what the hell he is doing or is so immersed in his personal vendetta against Ventura and Moorpark Colleges that he's got total blinders on. He should do us all a favor and resign!

I love that "deer in the headlight" picture of him at the Board meeting. He looks like someone just informed him that the District's credit card he carelessly lost is now being fraudulently used by some criminal. What a bozo!!!

GS,

I would agree with you if there was a good reason to miss the meeting. The board was attending the conference to find ways to work better together because of his past mistakes. They all went and he continued to make the same mistakes.

You're absolutely right, Brian. There was no good reason for this buffoon, Art Hernandez, to miss the meeting. He knew damn well what he was doing by missing it too. But, it seems that he just doesn't care. He should resign immediately and issue a public apology to the college's he has irreparably damaged by his juvenile, cavalier attitude and behavior!

What a buffoon!!! What would it take to recall his sorry ass?

I think this buffoon, Art Hernandez, ought to be nominated for the "Selfish Person of the Year" award. Thanks for caring about our kids, Artie!!!
