    Candidate for
speaks to ASG
State Senator Rod
Monroe, a candidate for the of­
fice of State Superintendent of
Public Instruction, spoke before
the Associated Student
Government last week.
“We have to change the
way we support schools in this
state,” Monroe said of school
financing at the Thursday
meeting, “I’m calling for at least
50 percent support from the
state level.” Oregon is listed
number 46 (fourth from the
bottom) in state support for
Monroe also believes in
strengthening local control of
schools, by “providing services
to local school districts which
enable them to better serve the
needs of their communties.”
Monroe, 39, is a 3-term.
Oregon legislator. He has been
a teacher for 17 years, and cur­
rently teaches at Tigard High
The Senator said com­
munity colleges are an impor­
tant part of the educational
system. “With all. the new
technology, the types of jobs
are changing constantly. We
have to train people for these
jobs, and the community col­
leges are where we’ll do that,”
he said. “Universities have
been raising tuition so much
that they’re keeping people
out. That’s where the com­
munity colleges fit in.”
Monroe has served on
educational finance commit­
tees in the state Senate and
House of Representatives. He
has received endorsements for
his campaign from the AFL-
CIO, the Oregon Educational
Association, and the American
Federation of Teachers.
The job of superintendent
is a nonpartisan post, and there
is no limit to the number of
terms a person can serve. The
incumbent, Verne Duncan, has
served in the office for the last
eight years.

that the class is held every
Monday and Tuesday from 3
to 5 p.m., for children of Col­

class is available for kids ages 4
through 6.
Originally, the class was to
be held only once a week, but
the response was so over­
whelming, Knutson said, that
the Tuesday class was added.

Lee Fawcett, assistant
dean of student aid and sup­

the students start writing letters
to senators concerning the
Federal Financial Aid cuts at
last Thursday’s Associated Stu­

“Congress needs to hear from
people who are being affected
by these cuts,” he said.
April 19 there will be a
“Candidates Fair” for persons,
running for U.S. Congressional
5th District. Those candidates
who will be attending are Greg
Kaufman, Larry, Gray, Dave
McFarland. Mike Penski has
yet to be contacted. The fair
will begin at 11 a.m. and will be
held in the Fireside Lounge.
Students will get a chance
to listen to the candidates and
also ask them questions.
“There will be more candidates
here who. will be running for
other positions such as county
commissioner, superintendent
of the State School Board, and
state representative for the
23rd District,” Sam Crosby,
ASG president said. “They will
not take part in the fair, but
they will be Tjere if students
wish to talk with them.”
State Senator, Rod
Monroe, who is running for
state superintendent of public
instruction, was the guest
speaker at the ASG meeting.
Monroe gave a short presenta­
tion of himself and what he
believes in and asked the ASG
to help him with his campaign
(See story, page 4). As quoted
in his pamphlet, he will “bring
to this job 17 years’ experience
as a classroom teacher, success
as owner of a small business,
and three terms as an Oregon
legislator, working on he com­
mittees most important to
education. I also bring the con­
cern of a parent who knows ex­
actly what’s at stake—the future
of our children.”
There will be an anti­
nuclear rally on campus, April
22. In a letter written by Mar­
sha Meyers, acting dean of
humanities, the ASG was ask­
ed to help sponsor the rally.
ASG passed a motion that they
“cannot support” the rally.
Crosby feels that the ASG can­
not lend support to a con­
troversial issue without letting
the student body vote first.
Also on the agenda was
the resignation and dismissal of
two senators. Kim Smith has
resigned and Rebecca Col­
eman has been dismissed. Col­
eman is no longer a student at
the College, but failed to
resign. Two senator positions
are open and nominations will
take place this Thursday.
