Although he transferred to U.C. Berkeley at the end of the 2013 Spring semester, former Student Trustee Jason Troia is still making his presence felt at LBCC.
Troia said he has filed a complaint with the LBCC Board of Trustees on behalf of the ASB board of Executive Board in what Trustee Jeff Kellogg said “Is a document so convoluted with allegations that we aren’t sure of what direction we want to take right now.”
LBCC has 30 days to respond to the complaints and officials are not commenting on what specifically the document says.
Mark Taylor, the LBCC director of College Advancement, Public Affairs and Governmental Relations, has released a statement saying, “The document pertains to pending litigation and will not be disclosed.
While the district believes the claims contained in the document are without merit, the district has been advised not to comment further.”
Whatever the position taken by the board, Troia said, “The complaint was filed on behalf of the previous ASB Executive Board against the LBCC Board of Trustees and the current
ASB Executive Board is aware of the complaint. The LBCC Board of Trustees has 30 days to dispute the charges or not, which implies they agree with the allegations.” Troia said after the district responds to the complaint, everything will then be moved to Superior Court.
