My Top 3 Priorities

  • Managing the budget shortfall resulting from California's shutdown to soften the impact on our district, employees, students, and taxpayers.
  • Keeping our local colleges highly ranked and accredited. Cypress College is ranked the #1 Community College in California, Fullerton College is the #1 College for Cal St University transfers, and NOCE a top career technical & HS diploma institution.
  • Bond Oversight: The taxpayers of North Orange County voted the passage of two bonds, which financed several major construction projects on our local campuses. I will continue to ensure these dollars are being used to deliver the projects promised.

The NOCCCD oversees the campuses of Fullerton College, Cypress College, and North Orange Continuing Education.
