November 8, 2006

Dear Members of the Mendocino-Lake Community College District:

On behalf of the Mendocino College Board of Trustees, our students and staff, we would like to thank everyone who voted to support Measure W . Your vote helps insure that Mendocino College will continue to be a vital educational resource in our community, providing essential opportunities for student success for many years to come.

The campaign’s success is the result of a community wide support and effort from numerous individuals and groups. We want to especially thank the Mendocino College Foundation for their generous financial support and volunteer efforts. Special thanks is also in order for the many hours of time and effort provided by the Citizens for Mendocino College –Yes on W committee without whose work this campaign would not have succeeded.

We acknowledge there were reasons why not everyone voted yes on Measure W. That said, we trust that as we move forward, we will earn your confidence regarding our future plans. One of our first steps is to move quickly to establish the independent Citizen¹s Oversight Committee and we will be inviting individuals and groups to contribute to this process. In conjunction with the work of the oversight committee we will provide regular information on our progress to the media and on our website,

Measure W allows us to move forward to provide the facilities and infrastructure needed now and in the future to meet student needs. We will also be hard at work continuing to develop educational programs and student services to implement our vision of student success in the future.

The Mendocino-Lake Community College District thanks you for your support and invites your questions and comments as we move forward together in helping our students succeed with their education and job training goals.
