Disgraced Cerritos College Faculty Senate President Robert “Bob” Chester made derogatory comments in public early this week that compared the campus leadership to prostitutes from Vietnam.
Hews Media Group-Community Newspaper received both an audio tape as well as a written transcript of the remarks on Thursday.
Chester can be heard stating at the beginning of the Cerritos College Faculty Senate
Meeting, where he served as President until his resignation on Tuesday afternoon said the following:
“Let’s begin with the really horrendous news first. You’ll notice no cookies. Guess what, no money, no money, just like the old days in Saigon- no money, no honey, ok. No money, no cookies. If you want cookies, give money. Simple. End of cookies report.”
In the meantime, Cerritos College Superintendent Linda Lacey sent out a statement via their legal counsel, specifically dealing with Chester’s abrupt resignation as both the leader of the Faculty Senate and Coordinator of Judicial Affairs.
“Mr. Chester has served and will continue to serve Cerritos College students and the community for many years. He is a valued member of the Cerritos College Faculty and has served the College in a variety of roles over the years, including twice serving as president of the faculty senate, most recently this year. This year he also took on the responsibility of serving as a faculty member in the role of judicial affairs coordinator handling sensitive issues relating to student discipline.” Lacey said.
“While Mr. Chester has resigned from these two positions, he will resume his role as a full-time classroom instructor,” Lacey continued.
“The College appreciates his service in these additional roles. He is leaving his appointments solely for personal reasons. His position as Academic Senate President will be filled according to Senate policy. His faculty appointment as judicial affairs coordinator is being handled by an interim dean at this time, with a permanent replacement to be announced at the end of the school year.”
