I am thrilled on the ballot on November 4th for the Austin Community College Board of Trustees, Place 2! As a past student of 3 ACC campuses and an employer of many community college trained employees, I am passionate about higher education and ACC’s role as a conduit for social equity and workforce readiness. My experience in business and construction will add a new perspective to the board as they embark on new projects across Central Texas. I am humbled to have the endorsement of the ACC American Federation of Teachers Union and the Central Labor Council, as I believe they recognize my past work in fighting for equality, respect, and fairness for all workers and students, and my defense of the American Dream. I would be honored to have your support and your vote on November 4th!
