It is true that Clatsop Community College lacked good leadership for nearly a decade. ("There's more where that came from," The Daily Astorian, Aug. 4) I know now that I was correct in being the first one to publicly call for the resignation of the previous president. I respected him enough to call him first before doing so. He was always friendly, available to me to chat and is a nice guy. I believe the blame rests primarily with the board for being unable to see we were going nowhere. This newspaper stated that my being on the board would have been a disruptive influence. But considering what has happened, maybe it was time to disrupt them.
