Community Colleges provide an invaluable role in our community. I am a product of the Community College system. I live in Huntington Beach and my four daughters attended Golden West and Orange Coast Colleges. Like me, they, too, earned advanced degrees.
I have served as your Trustee for the past sixteen years and during that time I have seen our colleges grow and graduate or transfer over 165,000 students to university or, go on to good paying jobs.
I have dedicated myself to getting the best and highest use of your tax dollar. You, too, have contributed to the success of the Coast College District by passing millions of dollars of Measure M Bonds for new construction of facilities, and the improvement of the campuses’ new equipment used for the education of your District’s students. My background as a budget analyst provides the knowledge necessary to manage our college finances and use every tax dollar to its highest and best use.
At the State level, I am proud to have represented the Coast College District on the California Community College Trustees’ Executive Board and as State Board Trustee President make policy and legislative recommendations for the benefit of the 2.1 million state-wide students we serve. My Board streamlined financial aid and added millions of dollars to Career Technical Education for the Community College System of California. I thank my fellow Trustees for placing their trust in me.
I am a native California baby boomer raised in Southern California and a graduate from Long Beach State. After college I began work as a probation officer and lived in Trustee Area 1 in Northwest Orange County for over fifty years. During my career of thirty-five years with the County of Los Angeles, I was an assistant administrator of two county general hospitals and multiple clinics. I also taught Spanish in a classroom setting to medical professionals. My background includes also being a budget analyst for the Department of Health, and during the 80's and 90's I was a Senior Deputy for County Supervisor Ed Edelman. My duties as the Supervisor's Budget Officer were to assist in financial policy development, and handle department operational issues by managing a $16 billion budget.
I understand the needs of students who have to compete in a world market and I have done my best to ease their financial burden by streamlining the financial aid process. This particularly helps those students and our Veterans who must depend on financial aid to complete their community college education. I look forward to continue working as your Trustee of the Coast Community College Area One. Please consider me as your candidate for Trustee with your vote.
