Sonia Waraich’s article Upcoming Accreditation Propels University’s Assessment Reforms (9/25) was a remarkable piece of reporting and deserves special attention. Using her own research, Ms. Waraich has comprehensively described an important, yet complicated process. The writing is clear and accurate...

Laura Chapman’s article “The Cost of Legalizing Marijuana” fails to ask the questions “why?” and “Why does it matter?” What is the aim of this change? It seems Ms. Chapman is inferring that money, revenue, or wealth is the final aim, but wealth can never be a final aim. Wealth is a means,...

The Pioneer Editor, In regard to August 14, 2014’s edition – more specifically the article Carnegie park rides on report, that discusses the alleged expansion of Carnegie SVRA into Tesla Park, many facts within the article are skewed and purportedly untrue. Reading through this article, I...

Here we are, employees of this fine institution, coming to work diligently day in and day out. Some of us have multiple cars that we like to drive. We try to make sure that the parking tag follows us into the "other" car but, alas, it's human nature to be in a rush and we get to work without said tag....

Yousuf: I was pleased to learn the results of our local mayoral vote from your newspaper. It was right there at the news rack by the downtown Post Office and my look at the Wednesday local paper hadn’t shown any information. Your grammar could be improved by not putting an “s” after names...

To President Obama: Please respect internet neutrality

Dear Mr. President, I received your form letter from the Washington D.C. Democratic Committee, asking if I still have your back? As if our vote were a show of some kind of allegiance to your person. I never had your back; this is not a basketball game, whatever happened to the change we voted for...

To The Pioneer: For Winter 2013 Quarter I was assigned a POSC1201 project that would investigate the reasons and possible solutions to a problem that was going on in the community or on campus. I chose a campus-based problem but soon realized that it also was a community-based problem. Later, I decided...

Restore CSU Hayward

Filed under Letter to Editor, Opinion

If President Morishita wants the university to walk like a CSU in Hayward, talk like a CSU in Hayward, look like a CSU in Hayward, be supported as a CSU in Hayward, then the university should call itself CSU HAYWARD. As it did for 43 years. He may not duck the question. Almost all CSUs, Bakersfield to...

Union claims are untrue

I would like to respond to statements in your April 17, 2014 article attributed to the Carpenters Local Union 46 suggesting that CSUEB “did not require the contractor, Sundt or their subcontractors to pay fair wages, fair hours, nor proper working conditions for the construction of the five-story replacement...

Letter to the Editor: The Real State of Hayward

April 6, 2014
Filed under Letter to Editor, Opinion

This week, the Mayor of Hayward delivered his state of the city address. If the Mayor wants to find out the real state of Hayward, he can spend some time with the families of city employees. My coworker, a single mom with three children, is afraid of retaliation or of losing her job, so I will keep...

Sir: Your editorial by Daniel O’Neil was spot on. So good to see a ‘tell it as it is’ from a college publication. It will never be repeated in whole or substance in any mainstream media. Fear and accompanying self-censorship have accelerated the downward spiral of such publications. Only such...
