Delta College Liaison: A Conflict of Interest and Unfinished Business


Before Trustee Reusche was hired as the Liaison between Delta College and CUSD ...
Calaveras Enterprise



Was the President of Delta College fully informed and ...

 1. made aware of the Trustee's conflict of interest(s)?
  • Who does Trustee Reusche represent: CUSD or Delta College?
  • The elected Trustee receives Health Benefits from CUSD and a salary from Delta College
  • Do the Trustee’s elected duties ever come in conflict with her paid duties and expectations as liaison for Delta College?
  • Was the position ever made public? 
  • If the process was made public (prior to the selection) how many candidates applied for the Liaison position?
   -----------
     
Was the President of Delta College fully informed and ...

2. made aware of the CUSD Trustee's history of misrepresentation while in public office?

  • When asked by Calaveras Enterprise reporter Stephen Crane, Trustee Reusche admitted to not having a Teaching Credential.

“All my course work and what is required by the state of California was completed,” Reusche said, acknowledging she does not have a credential.”

  • The CUSD Trustee has never publicly apologized for the unlawful act of misrepresentation
  • Trustee Reusche has never admitted to falsifying or misrepresenting her professional credentials on the 2012 Voter's Guide:


  • Trustee Reusche has never admitted to falsifying her candidate profile questionnaire in the Union Democrat:

  • Trustee Reusche has never admitted to misleading the public in the Valley Springs News
  • Trustee Reusche has never stated that it was wrong to mislead the public
  • Trustee Reusche has never admitted that she should not have misrepresented her professional credentials (stating that she held a California Teaching Credential) in order to gain public trust  
  • Trustee Reusche has never stated in public that she made a mistake and should not have misrepresented her professional credentials
  • Trustee Reusche has never asked the public for forgiveness
A better choice for the Delta College Liaison would be someone who has (1) no obvious conflict of interest, and (2) someone who does not have a history of misrepresenting their professional credentials to the public and their constituents which they are obligated to serve with honor and integrity.
