Portland Community College Zone 7

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 am proud to be endorsed by PCC Federation of Faculty & Academic Professionals and PCC Federation of Classified Staff. I spend a lot of time working with academic professionals and have seen the impact of COVID-19 on their careers. A strong workforce is critical and will cultivate a positive culture and improve the quality of education. Whether it be access to affordable healthcare, alternative work schedules, childcare support or other resources to help with employee retention, it is critical that community colleges think innovatively about how to strengthen these resources, especially during a pandemic. Although the pandemic has greatly impacted enrollment, community colleges need to prepare for an increase as we move into economic recovery. This includes creating linguistically and culturally relevant recruitment strategies to increase enrollment while simultaneously removing barriers to access for traditionally underserved or underrepresented students.
Portland Community Colleges has a strong strategic plan and supportive initiatives in place to improve graduation and transfer rates for low-income students and students of color. I would support initiatives that provide more personal support for these students, more advising, and cleaner pathways to a degree or certificate. In my current role, I work with educational partners - including PCC, to develop shorter certificate programs and on-ramps to careers that can be completed in shorter time frames, and by design, they are stackable, meaning students can build on them for additional training and have a clear pathway to a livable wage career. Additionally, I would support building partnerships with culturally specific community organizations to help provide support services to students to address unmet needs and improve graduation and transfer rates for low-income students and students of color.
It is important community colleges have legislation and resources to help provide supportive housing and wrap around services, which so many students need. Community colleges, like PCC, must look at the economic and social circumstances that face students who are going through their institution (especially for those who may be struggling to finish) and ensure that there are interventions in place to help them succeed. These interventions must look like ease of transportation, financial support for basic necessities like food, housing, and childcare, as well as workforce and career coaching and academic support. As a board member, I would support PCC initiatives such as Pathways to Opportunity, which includes staffing and resources for benefit navigators on college campuses to help students access benefits for childcare, food, and housing. This creates a culture that provides quality education, with a safety net that many students needs to achieve their educational goals.
