Do you want to help ensure public funds are well spent?
Community college officials are seeking applicants for a citizens'committee that reviews spending under Measure C, the $490.8 million bond measure passed in 2006 by voters in the Foothill-De Anza Community College District.
The funds have been used for major new buildings at Foothill and De Anza, including a new physical sciences and engineering building at Foothill, a Media and Learning Center at De Anza and adaptation of the former Onizuka Air Force Station for re-use as a satellite campus.
The seven-member committee meets quarterly and reports annually to the Foothill-De Anza Community College District Board of Trustees.
Applications are due Nov. 15 and new members will be seated in January 2014. Applicants must reside within the community college district boundaries, which include the cities of Palo Alto, Los Altos Hills, Los Altos, Mountain View, Cupertino, Sunnyvale and parts of San Jose, Santa Clara and Saratoga. District employees, contractors, consultants or vendors may not apply.
Applicants should submit a resume that includes their home address and a cover letter explaining their qualifications and which four membership categories they would represent. The categories are taxpayer association representative, business organization representative, Foothill-De Anza support organization representative or at-large representative.
Application material should be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org. For more information call 650 949-6100.
Committee members will be appointed by the Foothill-De Anza Community College District Board of Trustees.
