    Delta College is a mess. Anyone who takes a class on campus would realize that there are a whole lot of people there earning paychecks for doing nothing.

    Several semesters ago I took a course - each class time, the janitorial cart was parked outside the restrooms on that floor for the entire 1 1/2 hours of the class. After it was gone, the restrooms were in the same condition as they were before. It became obvious that the "janitor" or "maintenance staff," whatever they are called, just made an appearance and probably went and had coffee instead of cleaning the restrooms.

    Typical Stockton politics of nepotism, favoritism, inside-circle-ism - whatever you want to call it. Delta College should be investigated thoroughly by the state and the corruption needs to stop. Just look at the two trustees who recused themselves due to questionable activities.

    The standing joke is that "parking spots are always available" by the end of February because by then all of the financial aid has been paid out and those students don't need to attend anymore.

    Something needs to be done to protect the taxpayers who are footing the bill for this mismanagement. It is a shame that Marsee was determined to be a threat to the status quo instead of the solution.

    The settlement would be a lot different if the board members had to pay Marsee off instead of sticking us taxpayers with the bill.
