Education is the bedrock upon which a community must be built. This, participation in the governance of schools, in my opinion, is one of the highest responsibilities and callings to which a member of our community can aspire. It is in this spirit that I offer myself as a candidate for the Board of Trustees of Long Beach City College and pledge myself to providing the kind of collegial leadership needed as we enter these early years of the 21st century and the challenges that these years will bring. 

My belief in the value of education matches my belief in the value of family, and all that word means, in the life of the community. My wife shares those values and is also a strong believer in the necessity of education in both the individual family and the larger social context. She, too, is a product of Long Beach schools, (Cal State Long Beach, BA and MA) and a leader in the field of education (former Assistant Vice Chancellor of the California State University). And our children, too, are beneficiaries of the California public school system. Four of our children have graduated from UC Schools (three from UC Berkeley and one from UC Santa Barbara) and one graduated from University of Southern California.

I have been fortunate to serve in numerous capacities of service locally: member and sometime Chair of the Long Beach Planning Commission; President of the Long Beach Bar Association; Chair of the "Dialogues on Freedom" Program, an educational program relating to law for all Long Beach public high school; Co-founder of Long Beach Heritage; Co-president of the Public Corporation for the Arts. I am also experienced in the classroom as a full adjunct professor of law at Southwestern University Law School. 

As Chair of the Long Beach Strategic Plan 2010, I encouraged the conclusion that Long Beach should be, above all, a safe community of neighborhoods focused on education and youth, and a clean green environment with economic opportunity for everyone. Our voters have demonstrated their belief in that goal by supporting numerous local bond issues on behalf of educating our youth. On their behalf, I propose to continue and do better.
