Political Beliefs

Political Philosophy

I'm running for Community College Trustee because I believe with all my heart that education transforms lives.   I have been blessed with teachers who changed the direction of my life.   I am thankful and that is the reason education has been a passion of mine for decades.  I've spent 25 years educating students - spending time in and out of the classroom at UCR, CBU, and CSU.   I want every student to have a promising future.

As a business owner who creates technology products for customers worldwide, I will prepare students for 21st century jobs, balance budgets and fight wasteful spending, and expand career, technical, and vocational training programs.

As a first generation community college student and UCR graduate, I will fight for affordable education, stand up for high quality teachers and staff, and help students get classes and graduate on time.

As a community volunteer with deep Inland roots, I have spent decades leading civic groups that help students thrive.   I align college curriculum with workforce needs by serving on college advisory boards.
