MAKING OUR STUDENTS GREAT AGAIN!

It is time to MAKE OUR STUDENTS GREAT AGAIN, and I intend to work hard toward that goal!

As a small business owner that has interviewed hundreds and hundreds of job candidates over the years, I have seen first hand how our educational system has failed our students, including our community college system that produces students that cannot even use Microsoft Word, Excel or PowerPoint software programs.

Relevant Curriculum

We need to make sure that the students have (1) relevant curriculum to prepare them for today’s career demands; and, (2) more vocational and job skills programs for those students that do not want a four year degree; and, (3) training and educational programs targeting our veterans to help them integrate back into civilian careers after they have honorably served our country; and, (4) more affordable community college education for all.

Fiscal Accountability

We also need to make sure that we are properly managing our community college system’s financial affairs, including eliminating wasteful spending, eliminating over-spending through unfair bidding processes, and eliminating inappropriate pension system procedures through pension reform.

It is for these reasons that I’m running for the Board of Governors (Trustees) of the Grossmont Cuyamaca Community College District (Area 2).

I would be honored to have your support and your vote! Thank you!
