CU Regents Approve Tuition Hike

Regent Tom Lucero was the sole dissenter, citing the school's obligation to middle-class students and their families not to raise tuition so sharply:
The regents vote was 8-1. Regent Tom Lucero cast the dissenting vote. He said the increase would be a heavy burden on middle-class students.

"I understand we're being squeezed by the state, but at some point we have a moral obligation to students of the university," Lucero said, in reference to low state support.

But other regents said the increase is necessary to maintain the quality of the university. Regent Michael Carrigan said "Regent Lucero, with all due respect, what do you suggest we cut?"
Oh, I don't know Regent Carrigan. As an alumnus, how about the bloated bureaucracy and useless administration?

Overpriced, underqualified tenured professors (especially CU ethnic studies professors).

Expensive moonbat speakers like Kofi Annan.

That's just a start.
