My Top 3 Priorities

  • Promote a positive campus-city partnership between MT SAC COLLEGE and its host city. Re-build the lost trust.
  • Maintain the high academic record of MT SAC COLLEGE and ensure that students have a robust and supportive college experience. Utilize satellite courses and online learning.
  • Implement 2-4 year term limits for trustees. Develop a growth model that is sustainable. Use video broadcasting of trustee meetings. Implement a balanced budget resolution. No new taxes to residents.

Why I am running

Summary

Why I am running

I AM PROPOSING CONSIDERATION OF THE FOLLOWING IDEAS:

 

1.       Greater Use of Satellite Campuses AND online courses. Providing better access to the residents of Covina, Charter Oaks and San Dimas. Helping students facing economic challenges still learn and achieve at Mt SAC. We need to take our classes to where the students live.

2.       Decrease class size and increase teacher student ratios. To provide students with better educational experiences that are tailored to their needs while in college. We can ensure their  transition to UCLA, UCI, etc., by doing this! We can make sure that everyone who enters Mt Sac graduates with their certificate, AA or transfers to a 4 year. Let’s have a plan to  help students achieve your dreams.

3.       Lessen the intersection traffic that has resulted in major intersections receiving a failing grade. THIS INCREASES RISK OF ACCIDENTS involving students, residents and visitors. There are almost monthly accidents at Mountaineer and Grand.

4.       Building partnerships with other under-utilized community colleges. USING THE MT SAC BRAND to offer some MT SAC courses on the  under-utilized community colleges that students pass to come to MT SAC to lessen their drive time, stress and improve graduation rates.

5.       Early involvement of Mt SAC leadership with community organizations concerned with abuse of taxpayer monies.  This will bring it back to a partnership with surrounding communities where balancing the needs of the students and the community go hand in hand.

6.       Early involvement of Mt SAC leadership with LOCAL city governments, community organizations together with regional developers to minimize the effects of CUMULATIVE OVER BUILDING IN THIS AREA.

7.       Development of a top to bottom review of past practices and the implementation of better practices monitored and reported on by a GOOD PRACTICES CITIZENS OVERSIGHT COMMITTEE. I want you to join me. I want your voices to be heard that is why we should create a GOOD PRACTICES CITIZENS OVERSIGHT COMMITTEE.

8.       THE IMPLEMENTATION OF TERM LIMITS TO NO MORE THAN TWO TERMS PER CANDIDATE. Many Trustees have served over 20 years.

9.       Video broadcasting of Board of Trustee meetings so everyone can hear and see how Mt SAC conducts its business meetings.

10.     Development of a campus evacuation plan with local input in the event of fire, earthquake or a campus shooter situation.

11.     We need to create a MT SAC SUSTAINABILITY AND CAPACITY TASK FORCE. If we don’t study this problem and come up with creative ways to shift growth off campus our cities will face increased road maintenance costs, police and fire safety costs, health risks caused by emissions of toxic particulates resulting in city governments increasing our taxes again.
