Biografía

Thank you for taking the time to visit my page. Since you made the effort to visit, I believe you are very likely someone who believes in education, our community, and the future of our region.

Like me, you probably think it's a good idea to also allow community colleges like Southwestern College to offer affordable 4 year degrees. That's why I dedicated 3 years of my life to help make that happen. I advocated and worked on legislation on behalf of South Bay students who want and need a more affordable, local option for higher education.

Perhaps you have a deeper, personal connection to Southwestern College. I first experienced the campus at a young age, joining my single mother at her evening classes because she couldn't afford childcare. Through hard work and dedication, she earned her degree at Southwestern College, and raised her children with an appreciation of the difference a good education can make.

 

When I was in high school, I took college courses offered by Southwestern College at my high school. Those courses helped me better prepare for my degree from UC Berkeley.

Like you, I am very proud of our fine community college. I know how much it means to our region, and how many students it helps elevate into great careers. Like you, I believe in wise and fair administration of public funds. We need to 
think 

strategically in order to protect and enhance the resource which has been part of our community for so many years.

Please trust me when I say that I have the professional background, experience, and commitment to be the public servant you hope I will be. The teachers of SWC have endorsed my candidacy, as have most of the leaders you have elected in the South Bay because they know me, they know my values, my accomplishments, and they are looking forward to working together to further elevate Southwestern College to be the best community college in California.

 

Thank you!

SOUTHWESTERN COMMUNITY COLLEGE DISTRICT
Governing Board Member – Seat No. 3

ROBERTO C. ALCANTAR
Senate Education Advisor

Thank you for taking time to read this. I know that if you are reading the ballot statement for Southwestern Community College District, you are someone who believes in education, our community, and the future of our region.

Like me, you probably agree we should allow community colleges to offer affordable four-year degrees. That's why I dedicated 3 years of my life to make that happen.

Perhaps you have a personal connection to Southwestern College. My first experience was at age 5. My mom couldn’t afford childcare, so she took me along to evening classes. Later, Southwestern College classes provided a shortcut for my four-year degree from UC Berkeley.

Like you, I am very proud of Southwestern College. I believe in the wise administration of public funds. I am committed to thinking strategically to protect and enhance the resources which are vital to our community.

I have the experience and commitment to be the public servant you hope I will be. The teachers of Southwestern College have endorsed me, as have many residents and business leaders. They know my values and accomplishments. We are looking forward to working together to further elevate Southwestern College to be the best community college in California.
