Candidate Teresa Cox

For Ohlone Community College District Trustee, Area 2

Four years ago, I was elected to represent you on the Ohlone Community College District Governing Board. I have kept my promises as your trustee.

My goal has been simple: operate a world-class community college system that provides access to the education, training and technologies local students need to succeed in 21st Century jobs and careers.

I have worked hard to help Ohlone excel during the worst state budget crisis in decades. Our Board has balanced budgets, prevented the loss of accreditation, increased student transfer rates to four-year colleges and universities, passed a $349M bond measure to modernize aging college facilities and developed programs to train students for green jobs.

Receiving a quality education helped me achieve success in work and in life. I was the first African-American woman in the nation to earn a nuclear engineering degree. I successfully transitioned from engineering to a thriving business career. I am currently international strategy executive for a major cloud computing company and am a former Chair of the Economic Development Commission for the City of Fremont.

There is more work to do - I am eager to continue.

I ask for your support and your vote on November 6, 2012. Thank you.
