Save the Community Technology Center at PCCC
We, the undersigned, are asking Freeholders Edward O’Connell, Deborah Ciambrone, and Michael Marotta from the Passaic County Board of Freeholders to reconsider their position against bonding and allowing Passaic County Community College to bond for their capital expenditures. If PCCC is not permitted to bond for these expenses, programs such the Community Technology Center (CTC) will be eliminated.
During the past ten years, the CTC has served more than 10,000 local residents through an array of educational programs, has leveraged $10 million in outside funding, has formed successful partnerships with more than 24 community organizations, effectively engaged PCCC faculty, staff, and students in CTC activities, and has generated enormous good will in the community. These are just a few examples of why the CTC is such a tremendous asset to county taxpayers.
Please consider the economic impact, as well as the quality of life issues, associated with the elimination of community programs such as the CTC when budgetary issues are reviewed. We strongly believe that the cost of these cuts far exceeds the money saved by making them. We urge you to protect CTC programming from these budgetary cuts.
