Mt. Hood Community College Zone 1

Special districts in Oregon are formed to govern specific resources. Examples are people’s utility districts, library districts, sewer districts, irrigation districts, ports and cemetery districts. Some districts get revenue only from taxes. Others, such as water districts, get revenue from ratepayers. Others may combine the two sources. Each district is governed by a board of directors which is responsible for the operation of the district and its financial accountability.

I would continue to work tirelessly, as I have in my previous 4 years on the board to increase state funding for community colleges. For several years the state legislature has not funded community colleges to keep pace with the cost realities of this important and essential part of higher education. The board has responsibility for oversight of the budget. In that role, it is important to assess the opportunities and the efficiencies that exist within the budget. Adoption of the budget is an open public process, so communication with stakeholders is certainly an integral and important consideration.
The College Foundation plays a significant role in supporting students by the numerous scholarships and support services they are able to offer. There is a Student Hub on campus that coordinates academic and resource services for students in one location. We have learned through the transition of all classes going online that some of our students don't have access to computers or the internet. This fact points out the importance of the needed availability of these basic resources for student success. The board's priorities are focused on the development of a campus wide equity lens and updating the strategic plan.
The Associated Student Government coordinates the food pantry on campus. They have formed partnerships with community organizations to help stock the pantry with much needed food including fresh produce. The Student Hub also provides community resources to the students that need help with housing needs. Establishing partnerships within the business and the broader community are important to addressing student success.
