I am running for re-election to Seat #1 on the Los Angeles Community College District Board of Trustees because of my continued passion for the community college system and my commitment to the students, their families and the staff of our colleges.
As the current President of the Board, I have fought tirelessly to improve the quality of education and secure more funding to ensure access for all who wish to attend.
In addition to serving as your Trustee, I am a Professor of American and California government with 22 years of community college experience. In addition to my years of work in the classroom, I have advocated for community colleges in the state legislature and federal government and work with students every day as part of my job at Glendale College.
As President of the Board of Trustees of the Los Angeles Community College District, I have fought to keep fees affordable, have lead the effort to give students the foundation to transfer to the state college or university system, have championed the expansion of our job and career training programs, created an LGBTQ+ Advisory Group, authored numerous resolutions to protect DACA Students, supported the creation of Dream Resource Centers on all nine campuses, supported additional resources for student basic needs as well as helped to facilitate the district’s first African American Outreach Initiative.
Thank you for visiting my website. I hope I can count on your support in this important election.
