News: New Members of the Pasadena City College Measure P Oversight Committee Introduced

Measure P

The Pasadena Area Community College District Board of Trustees announced the appointment of Sandra Burton Greenstein, Hanna Israel, Anthony Portantino, and Allen Shay to serve on the Pasadena City College Measure P Citizens' Oversight Committee, which will report on the progress of PCC renovations and construction funded by voter-approved Measure P Bond funds. The passage of Measure P in 2002 authorized PCC to issue up to $150 million in bonds to finance the construction. Bonds will be repaid through local property taxes.

The 12-member committee meets quarterly to ensure that campus projects are developed and funded as specified in Measure P. The committee also publishes each year a progress report in the fall PCC President’s Report to the Community.

Greenstein, representing the Senior Citizens’ Organization, is serving her first appointment on the committee. She currently sits on the board of the Pasadena Police Foundation, Pasadena Senior Center, and Friends of the Pasadena Library.

Israel, currently enrolled at PCC, is serving her first appointment on the committee. She serves as the PACCD student trustee.

Portantino, representing Trustee Area #1, previously served on the committee and is returning for a second stint. He is the state Assembly member for the 44th District and serves as the chair of the Assembly’s committee on Higher Education.

Shay, representing Trustee Area #3, is serving his first appointment on the committee. He has extensive experience in developing budgets for construction projects with his Pasadena-based firm Shay and Associates.

Committee members serve for two years. Members may be reappointed for a second term. They also may return to the committee after an absence of two years.

Measure P campus projects have included a new parking structure, a new Industrial Technologies Building, the renovation of the Campus Center building, and technology and safety upgrades to most of PCC’s existing buildings.
