    a.  VCFA Vasquez has a commitment to keeping the Bookstore as is.  As such, we have made a counteroffer to keep the Bookstore.  D. Coffin and G. Bodmer say that A. Herbert has made public statements that he will make the decision.  Vinod states that this is Trustee Riley�s agenda � privatization.   D. Coffin and S. Flint argue that we don�t have enough information to make an informed decision either way.  Vinod says this is just the tip of the iceberg for privatization so we should hold the line.  However, he doesn�t suggest any action from the Faculty Organization at this time.  Pres.
