My Top 3 Priorities

  • Measure B provides 265M$ to the college for a vast array of improvements and programs. Wise and prudent use of this funding to create enduring value for all students, faithful to the expectation of taxpayers is a primary priority.
  • The Bolinas Marine Biology Lab, COM's “3d campus”, has been abandoned and neglected for 13 years. Restoring the lab will require some problem-solving, but is do-able and will result in the only active Marine Lab in the CA Community College System.
  • Student learning modality is evolving with ever-changing technology. Students that will be entering college soon require new and relevant course curricula that address how students learn and what they learn.
