Hello Friends and Neighbors,
Welcome to my campaign for the Ohlone College Board of Trustees! I am excited to take this journey with each of you; and over the next few months, I look forward meeting you and listening to your concerns.
In today's uncertain economic environment, affordable, high-quality education has become difficult to maintain. As a long-time student advocate and educator, I understand the impact this has had on our students at every level.
One of the main components of sustainable economic growth is a strong public education system. Community colleges serve as a foundation to that system, and a gateway to opportunity for millions of Americans. In order to remain competitive, we must ensure our policies reflect that commitment.
As Trustee, my goal will be to preserve that standard of excellence, enabling Ohlone to continue serving as a model for the state and nation. My priorities will be to increase accessibility and affordability while promoting an atmosphere of innovation that will lead our region in 21st century job-preparedness.
Together we can make a difference for our students and our community. Thank you for your support.
Kevin Bristow, MPA
