Thank you to Rep. Jeni Arndt (D-53), who asked for a summer legislative task force to look at non-tenure track faculty pay and working conditions in the Colorado Community College System. She did so on April 26, the day K12 teachers from metro-area school districts were protesting on the steps of the Colorado 
Capitol their own pay and working conditions. Her request failed, along party lines. She intends to keep helping us. We are hoping for more dialogue and a better chance at some much-needed change for the CCCS faculty majority in the 2019 Session of the General Assembly. National and local attention is focused on teachers now more so than ever before, and in August, former Lt. Gov. Joe Garcia will become the new CCCS President.
