The UC Community Coalition for Option 4 will present University of California President Mark G. Yudof (or if heʼs unavailable, someone who looks very much like him) with the 1st Annual Bad Business Award for 2009. The ceremony will take place at the UC Coalition Bailout BBQ on the lawn outside of Fess Parkerʼs Doubletree Resort in Santa Barbara, 633 E. Cabrillo Blvd. at 12:30PM.

Inside the hotel, UC President Yudof will be the keynote speaker at the Spirit of Small Business Awards Luncheon. The UC Community Coalition for Option 4 thinks Mark Yudof is bad for small business, and finds it ironic that he, who will make the final decision to layoff some UC workers and cut othersʼ pay through furloughs at the largest employer in the area, is being held up as a model for small business owners who are already hurting in this “Great Recession.” We think thereʼs a better way to do business, and thatʼs in a manner that safeguards the economic health and well-being of local communities.
