And full awareness of the political power pressure being being applied on them to move it. Our community was not represented by enought political power to keep it here. So in order to achieve this power in the future we need to elect politicians that will represent us and are smart enought to put our community first instead of their own special agendas.

I have to agree with you. We keep electing persons of limited intellect and expecting results one might witness from a true scholar.

Where do we find true scholars?

Actually it had nothing to do with political power and had everything to do with long term negative employment issues. TYC didn't kill CSS, we killed ourselves. It wouldn't have mattered if the Governor himself, who was actually contacted, would have lobbied for us. We couldn't overcome the truth, that there were other State Schools with less problems and more productivity.

I agree with you here. This is what people wanted with Government cuts. This is what they got. Its how the system works.
