Cerritos elections

Dear Editor:I have been a teacher and counselor at Cerritos College for over 20 years and I am writing today to give my support for Tom Chavez for the Cerritos College Board of Trustees election next Tuesday, Nov. 3. I have worked with Tom Chavez for many years at Cerritos College. He is a 28-year retired employee of the college and given his involvement in campus-wide committees and his leadership over the years, I believe Tom Chavez has the skills and vision necessary to address the important issues facing the college. These issues include student success issues related to bacic skill attainment, transfer rates for students to four year universities, and continuing effective communication between the Board of Trustees and the administration. Tom has pledged to become an earpiece to the Board from the community. It is for these reasons that I hope you will consider joining me and the Cerritos College faculty and staff in supporting Tom Chavez for the Cerritos College Board of Trustees on Nov. 3. -- Sylvia Bello-Gardner, Cerritos College Counseling Faculty
