Questions & Answers

Questions from League of Women Voters of North County San Diego (1)

What is the most significant challenge facing the Palomar Community College District, and if you are elected, what steps will you take to address it?
Answer from Tim Fillinger:

A significant concern for our district is decreased enrollment.  As enrollment decreases, so does our state and federal funding. The Palomar Board must engage and work hand-in-hand with the local High Schools to promote the great opportunties that attending Palomar affords our communities students.
