Four new trustees were sworn in under a new oath and took their seats on the San Joaquin Delta College board of trustees on Wednesday night.

Teresa Brown, Steve Castellanos, Mary Ann Cox and C. Jennet Stebbins officially joined the board, but only after taking a new, longer oath. The oath, delivered by Stockton Judge Robin Appel, took over three minutes to complete. In addition to the state of California oath, the Delta administration added a new section recommended by the Association of Community College Trustees.

    House of .Could it be youre trying to think but nothing happens? Cant figure out what 720 days mean?

    House of Cra... chicken little? That wouldn't be my quote. As For Ted, he has 720 days until he gets booted out along with Rivera, and that my stray cat would be called a clean sweep. 7 for 7.

    Long or more likely Wide. You seem to have alot of animosity toward Ted Simas. I guess calling him "Chicken Little" wasn't enough.

    House, delta has a web page of the trustees, now that is a waste of cyber space.

    Could it be possible former trustees are still using Delta College internet equipment to insult Sentinel bloggers? If so then maybe they don't exhibit the same "high integrity and honesty" they use to describe others. While Delta College is cleaning house they should clean up their web page of former trustees mug shots.

    JF, common, put an application in.you are more than aware of all the issues that the college faces, this is an excellent opportunity for you. You know since Ted Simas openly supported Monroe in the last election against Serna he has alreay call her to hurry up and fill an application out. Remember he didn't repeat the oth the new trustees read last night.

    Raul says "I hope" Hope in one hand you know what in the other. See which one gets full first. They need more than hope Raul. Now that they have an oath that says don't be a crook I'm sure this will do it. They have to be better than what we had before. Hope for that one.

    I agree, JF, about all we can do it hope. ;) Ms. Serna's sense of entitlement seems to be the norm at **all** levels of politics and it is very sad. The lack of accountability is appalling; unfortunately, I seriously doubt the "new" administration will bring us much change...especially since it now looks like taxpayers will be on the hook for several more BILLIONS of dollars to bail out the auto industry.Below are two links on Ron Paul regarding the auto bail out.http://www.ktrh.com/cc-common/news/videos/player.html?mid=Reuters/12-08/RonPaul12-09.wmv&redir=yeshttp://www.campaignforliberty.com/Also, as a reminder, here's a link to HBO's "John Adams" a mini-series on how America came to be. Watching this, I could see Ron Paul as one of the founders. How far America has fallen.http://www.hbo.com/films/johnadams/For a real treat on the above link, click on Making John Adams and watch the videos on how the film was made and why.

    I have hope to Raul.I hope the DA will deeply investigate the boards actions and prosecute to the full extent of the law someday.I hope you never try to fool the taxpayers with any bond measure ever again.I hope you get replaced,I hope it is very soon.I hope,I hope its off to hope I go....
