David Hernandez Recommends Four Community College Candidates

Here's another election where I know zero about the candidates: the Community College Board of Trustees.

David Hernandez -- the man who picked up the fight against Measure R after the original challengers inexplicably bailed out on appeal -- recommends you vote for four candidates. To find out about David's picks, click here.

There's also an article on candidates in the Daily News.

Lest we forget....
Measure R was heavily supported by Home Depot.
The records show a $25,000 contribution, and lord knows, how much lobbying was done.

David is right. The four candidates he recommends are excellent candidates and should be elected. The four are: Guy Mato, Hector Gurule, Roy Burns and Josef Essavi. We need to make some changes in the LACC Board. Help these four knowledgeable and enthusiastic candidates get elected to the LA Community College Board.

I believe in Prop 13 protections unlike my opponent, who supported the lowering of 2/3 requiremnet to a mere 55% for all future education property tax increases.
There have been some secretive meetings held on different campuses to bring a new Tax Increase, namely Prop AAA to be placed on future ballots. This board is the same board that wasted millions on cost overruns, poor construction planning, implementation and on late fees and construction penalties.
I have worked with faculty, staff, administrators, students, and tax payers and know that we can do better. I will treat this part-time office as a full time job to involve the entire community in decision making not just the downtown politicians. Lower fees for students and increase private/public scholarships for books and make trasnferring easier while give students the chance to complete a vocational trade or job training education.
Give independence to each College President to make the decisions locally and to stop micro-managing the day to day operations.
To give tenure to qualified part time instructors so that they will stop driving campus to campus and rather focus on their students in one campus.
