Second lawmaker calls for Katehi to resign as UC Davis chief

Assemblyman Evan Low joins Kevin McCarty’s call for Katehi to step down

Low, D-Campbell, is a member of the Higher Education Committee

Both legislators cite Bee reports on her corporate board participation


UC Davis Chancellor Linda Katehi has undergone significant scrutiny and criticism during her tenure at the university, stemming from incidents such as the pepper-spraying of peacefully protesting students to her service on corporate boards that did not reflect favorably on the university or her office. Even before coming West, Katehi was hit with allegations of influence peddling while serving as an administrator at University of Illinois. Patty Couse-Baker The Sacramento Bee



When you look at the performance of Davis academically, when you look at it competitively, when you look at money raised, all the kinds of things that benefit a campus, she’s been a very good and effective leader,


And here, I and many other people, including the Students, the Residents, the Professors, and the majority of the staff will disagree. She has tripled the workload by cutting the working staff, and cutting the Pensions of those he did stay by half while take a 400 percent increase in the pensions for life of other $500k a year managers (who have done nothing but whine they aren't getting paid enough), dismantled students programs which caused thousands of Seniors to not be able to graduate after spending 5 to 6 years going for their Degrees (which is what caused the protests in the first place), and is having Building constructed on Tax Payers money, while outsourcing them to her buddies who are making Millions in Profits, while not paying a dime in maintenance or upkeep, and hiring Minimum wage, no benefits, less than 30 hours a week staff that are not having background checks, putting them in with 18-24 years students. Unless of course they hire the students themselves, who are then paid less than minimum wage, no benefits and given double shifts (we have some as residents). All in all, it is always 'Ms Katehi who calls for "austerity" in all things but her and her buddies salaries and pensions, giving us the old, tired, worn out meme of "but we have to pay them excessively to get good talents". We are wondering when those talents will arrive.This is another example of the C.L.a M. chowder(heads). They want a million dollars a year, free medical, with a $250K pension for the rest of their lives (for 10 years of work) to piss and moan over it not being enough to live on, while expecting the workers to live on one two hundredth of that, and a $5K a year pension while making us pay for the medical to the tune of $500 per monthNeedless to say, she is now getting another protest.


Molly say:
So keep fightin' for freedom and justice, beloveds, but don't you forget to have fun doin' it. Lord, let your laughter ring forth. Be outrageous, ridicule the fraidy-cats, rejoice in all the oddities that freedom can produce. And when you get through kickin' ass and celebratin' the sheer joy of a good fight, be sure to tell those who come after how much fun it was.
