Letter to the Editor: To Fix Our Campus, Please Vote for Prop 13 on March 3

On January 28, 2020, UC Santa Barbara’s Daily Nexus published a letter to the editor from Kaitlyn Medland, coordinator of Fund the UC Campaign in the Office of the External Vice President of Statewide Affairs at UC Santa Barbara, titled, “To Fix Our Campus, Please Vote for Prop 13 on March 3.” Here’s an excerpt:

“If you have trudged up multiple flights of stairs due to broken elevators, lived with three people in a dorm room built for two or struggled to get some outdated piece of equipment to work in a lab, you’ve seen evidence of the lack of funding for the upkeep of our campus and accommodation of our growing student population. UC Santa Barbara is, like all of the state’s four-year public universities and colleges, strapped for the funds needed to keep its aging buildings, dorms and equipment up to date and to provide adequate housing for its students.”
