    This is such a no-brainer thing to do. Each county does not need its own little fiefdom when they are close in proximity. The Bay Area should have one CC each in the North Bay, Peninsula, South Bay, East Bay, and in San Francisco proper, not the dozen it currently has.

  2. Two years ought to be more then enough time for the vast majority of administrators to find some justification for their continued employment so my prediction is that, just as in school districts, consolidation results in budget increases.
