    What An Election Season!

    alexIt was wonderful to see so many San Franciscans engaged and passionate about ballot issues and races that are close to home. There is no doubt in my mind that San Francisco’s future is bright when all of us find a way to work together.

    I am incredibly honored that voters chose me to continue serving as your Trustee on the City College Board. This campaign has been deeply personal for me. As a product of community college, being part of the decision making process that affects students looking for a path to a better life is a fundamental part of my values. It has been an incredible privilege to serve as your City College Trustee during this critical time.

    I also want to recognize Wendy Aragon and Tom Temprano for running great campaigns. I am proud that all of us stayed positive and focused on policies and the critical issues. City College deserves nothing less.

    City College is a special place and I want to thank the faculty, staff, and administrators that work hard every day to fight for our students and access to education. That is why statewide accreditation reform is fundamental to the ongoing success of City College. This is one of the key parts of serving our students the best we can, especially after the California community college system-convened task force recommended that all of us two-year colleges should be overseen by a new accrediting agency.

    Recently, Assemblymembers Phil Ting and David Chiu have crafted some incredibly impactful and comprehensive legislation and reforms that aim to alleviate and ease the pain we and other Community Colleges around the State are feeling from the accreditation crisis.

    I am eager to continue the work I have started at City College, and to fight alongside my amazing colleagues as we ensure that access to affordable education continues to be available in San Francisco. A great San Francisco needs a great City College! I hope you will join us in this fight by enrolling in a class this upcoming Semester. The 2016 Spring Schedule is out and can be found at

    I can’t wait to see what we will be able to accomplish over the next year.
