Tuition Hike Timeline Discussion Between UC Regents, UC Pres Occurred Solely -- Via Reporters?

see the detail in comments here at News10: Newsom Responds To Proposed UC Tuition Rate Hike (even includes former UC Regent Ward Connerly saying this is 'a mess, a mess') anyway, sections to note in the piece esp.:

Gov. Jerry Brown and Lt. Gov. Gavin Newsom, who sit on the UC Regents Board, said they were not consulted about the proposed tuition hike and didn't know it was coming.


Newsom said the timing of the tuition hike proposal was strategic: the announcement was made two days after the midterm election.

"The governor didn't have a lot of opportunity to dialog with the President of the UC system even as a member of the Board of Regents. I found out about this from another reporter who had a press embargo," Newsom said. "I hope they'll reconsider this and justify a different approach than the traditional approach of stacking more debt on our students and families."

And-- see this post noting: The notion that Proposition 30 really helped higher education is not true,” Brostrom said... [Note: Go back to past Regents meeting to hear the Regents falling over themselves to thank Gov. Brown for Prop 30]
