Dear Joel, Mary and Pat,
The UCSB Council on Planning and Budget strongly supports the demand in Professor
Lakoff's letter to the UC Board of Regents and in his presentation to the Board, that the proposed furloughs and paycuts should not be implemented. If these cuts are implemented they will do irreversible damage to the University of California and the Council implores the
Board of Regents to explore every other avenue to meet the current budget shortfalls.
Chair Council of Planning and Budget, UCSB.
