My Top 3 Priorities

  • PCC has had six presidents in less than ten years, and was recently on probation for two years. I want to restore morale, civility and stability on campus -- and build an effective working relationship between President and Board of Trustees.
  • As a community college graduate myself, I want to make sure that today's students have the same opportunities I had (or better!) to move on to university and successful careers. I also want to see more local students enrolled at PCC.
  • I am concerned that PCC's main science building was condemned six years ago, yet hundreds of classes are still being taught in "temporary" portable trailers -- with no concrete plan to remedy the situaiton.
