“I am committed to fighting for L.A.’s students because generations ago, a lot of people fought for me. As a result, this L.A. student is living a life he never dreamed possible.”
Why R. Richard Cuevas
The current Board of Trustees President Andra Hoffman has done a dreadful job. Graduation and transfers rates are below acceptable rates, student enrollment has been in decline in the last five years with no solutions in sight. She has no concrete solution to the homeless Student Crisis. She will benefit from the hundreds of thousands of dollars spent on her reelection campaign by special interests in the November election.
Budget deficits are off the charts, graduation rates are at a record low, student enrollment is way down. New student housing is non-existent. She takes tons of money from special interests. She’s part of an entrenched system where as long as she’s there, nothing is going to change.
Since I have gone through the Los Angeles Community College system, I fully understand that student issues are not truly represented by the district senior level leadership or at the Board of Trustees which is dominated by special interest groups.
My platform focuses on Putting Students First by addressing the issues that directly affect our students such as graduation, transfer rates to four-year universities, addressing food/housing insecurity, and holding the Community College organization accountable to student outcomes.
Community College Helped Me Become Who I Am, Now I Want To Give Back
I dedicated my Masters Degree in Public Administration from California State University Northridge to my mother for always believing in me.
The nine colleges of the Los Angeles Community College District are some of the most important institutions in our region.
Educating over 120,000 students, they provide one of the clearest pathways to economic independence and a chance at a better life.
I know this is true because that is exactly what Community College did for me.
I am a first-generation college graduate.
After receiving an Associate Degree in Liberal Arts from East Los Angeles College, I completed a Bachelors of Science Degree in Political Science from the University of California Santa Barbara and earned my Masters Degree in Public Administration from California State University of Northridge.
