Scott Lay was a student at UC Davis, getting a B.A. in Political Science and a J.D. from King Hall.

Lay is the current President and CEO of the Community College League of California. He was one of the main forces behind Proposition 92 (2008), which could have provided a ton of funding for community colleges had it passed. He ran for Davis City Council as a student in 1996.

2008-06-15 21:07:06   Not exactly sure when he was a student, or I would have posted it. 1995 is one year I know for sure, but I don't have a lot of notes on the 1990s due to the kind of research I've been doing. —BrentLaabs

2008-06-16 18:10:38   I was a student from 94-96 (undergrad) and 97-00 (law). The LSA wasn't part of GSA when I was in law school, which became a conflict when GSA negotiated for the Facilities and Campus Enhancement initiative (FACE), which funded the stadium, aquatics facility, ARC, and several outreach programs. Additionally, we were frustrated because the 500 law students were included in the up-or-down vote with the other 20,000 or so students at the time.

As law students, we fought it because the outreach and financial aid programs were only available to undergrad and academic graduate students. Since we didn't object to the facilities, we re-crafted a fee initiative with outreach and loan forgiveness money for law students, called it LEAAP, and approved it.

Although people occasionally say that I was part of ASUCD, that's also incorrect. I was co-founder of UC Davis College Democrats with Ceclia Escamilla-Greenwald, member of the UC Planning and Budget Committee and member of the California Student Aid Commission. I was always an outsider to ASUCD. :-( —ScottLay
