Blog: Wu’s on First
Photos and Story by Dana Haynes
One bit of good news out of last week’s Washington, D.C. trip: We got to meet with Congressman David Wu.
I mean no disrespect here when I say that some elected officials need to be told what a community college is and how we operate. Congressman Wu isn’t one of those. He gets us. He understands the function of community colleges.
He also understands the importance of the Pell Grants, which are at risk of being severely cut back by the House this year.
Knowing he’s on our side helps the fight.
