My Top 3 Priorities

  • Cut excessive administrators pay and use the money for teachers and students
  • Stop dumb decisions by the college, like hiring a college president who didn't have the right degree!
  • Cut number of administrators with pay over $100,000. The district has 75 administrators who get pay over $100,000.

Taxpayers and students need more classes for an education that will lead to a good job.  They don't need overpaid administrators, like the current board hires. The board paid the Chancellor $385,000 a year.  The board has THREE different administrations for two colleges with just 8000 full time students.  The board pays the Chancellor and two college presidents over $800,000 a year.  The board pays 75 administrators over $100,000 per year.  That is TOO MUCH! n  I want to use that money for more classes.  

For 30 years, I've managed my business.  The board needs the perspective of a business owner.  Currently, every board member is a academic.  

Teaching business law at CalState San Bernardino, showed me that our students are eager to learn and want to succeed.  Wasting money on overpaid administrators doesn't help them.



Political Beliefs

Political Philosophy

Teaching business law at CalState San Bernardino showed me that the education industry has failed our students.  They haven't been taught the basics about how government and ecconomy was intended to work.  They don't know that they were born with constituional rights, instead they have been taught that their rights were granted to them by the government.  They don't know how the free enterprise economy works or how it has made the US the greatest county in the history of the world.  They don't know the true story of our founders, why the founders insisted on the right to bear arms, of free speech and to practice one's faith of choice

If elected, I want our students to have the chance to take a class the learn about America and why it is the greatest country ever.
