Mismanagement, meet reality

What happens when millions of dollars are mismanaged by those trusted with taxpayer money? The taxpayers don't get what they thought they were paying for.

Now that Delta College trustees have frittered away millions of the Measure L bond, they've decided to pull the plug on a promised Lodi satellite campus, and the Mountain House and Manteca ones might not be far behind.

According to County Supervisor Leroy Ornellas, part of this isn't as dramatic as it sounds, because the need for satellite campuses is diminished with the booming popularity of online classes.

But it's unacceptable that the trusteeship of Delta College is so lacking that one, possibly three main projects of a $250 million bond are not built because of a lack of money.

I think it's safe to say that it's time to vote the bums out.
