Political Beliefs

Political Philosophy

My education and qualifications for the Alameda County Board of Education trustees are My career as a University Business Professor for Bachelor and Master level courses and currently serve as an elected member of the Hayward Unified School District Board of Trustees. This district, which comprises an area much larger than the city of Hayward, presents distinctive challenges in its cultural and academic diversity.

My earlier background as a real-estate lease analyst for major multi-national corporations gives me the ability to evaluate the bottom line which is rare in education budgeting, and in most government work. I have presented useful approaches to cost-cutting to put more taxpayer dollars into classroom teaching and less into sweetheart contracts. Prior to serving in elective office, I was also a classroom teacher, holding a BS in Computer Science, a Multi-Subject Teaching Credential, MS in Educational Leadership, and a Doctorate in Education, my research evaluates the dollarization of the currency in Ecuador and highlights the importance of the economic and financial literacy we all need. 

I am proud to have introduced computer technology to my third-grade Hayward students and raised their test scores 30%. In my tenure serving the community through collaboration, I have been able to increase the rate of high school graduations, promote and raise the minimum wage for district employees, develop procedures for competitive bidding on contracts, renovate and upgrade district schools, guarantee that all children regardless of immigration status receive a quality education, coach low-income parents and students on business startups, provide instruction for investing in stocks, options, and futures to underemployed parents.  Born in Mexico, I became a U.S. citizen at the age of twelve, when I entered public school in California. Bilingual in Spanish and English, I want to give every K-12 student in Alameda County the mastery of the English language and knowledge in economics and finance to become successful and productive. I pledge to help education rebuild prosperity, to reduce government waste, and to listen to you. Please give me your vote for the Alameda County Board of Education Area #5. Thank you
