I send my gratitude to the members of the Miami Dade College (MDC) Presidential Search Committee for their commitment, dedication and hard work on behalf of our community. Their sole interest is to ensure MDC can continue the legacy of Eduardo Padrón.
It is difficult to understand how a nationally recognized institution for academic excellence is under attack.
For the MDC Board to simply discard from consideration the top four candidates, including an internal candidate recommended by the search committee, is beyond comprehension and seriously threatens to destabilize a wonderful institution.
I sincerely hope MDC board chairman Bernie Navarro will rectify the attempt to corrupt a process by misusing public power to benefit well-connected individuals at the expense of what’s best for our community.
Jose R. Fox,
