WHY CITY COLLEGE MATTERS

EQUAL OPPORTUNITY

TOM KNOWS FIRST HAND how important Community College can be to our community. As a teenager, Tom became sick and was forced to drop out of high school. Attending community college classes allowed him to get his diploma and enroll in San Francisco State University. 

 

That's why when City College was going through an accreditation crisis, Tom as the President of the Harvey Milk LGBTQ Democratic Club fought alongside faculty and students to keep the school open and accredited. That experience inspired him to run for the City College Board of Trustees. In 2016 he won his race and for the last four years, Tom has served as our representative on the Board of Trustees and as San Francisco’s youngest elected official. 

 

Tom worked with students, teachers, and staff to secure important victories for City College:

  • Ensured that our accreditation was reaffirmed for the next 7 years

  • Secured full funding for the Free City program for the next 10 years

  • Negotiated contracts to raise faculty and staff salaries

  • Helped passed an $845 million bond to rebuild our dilapidated classrooms 

  • Worked with faculty to create the Cannabis Studies Program

  • Helped create the Workforce Education and Recovery Fund to stabilize funding to retain classes

  • Fought for new resources and policies to support undocumented and LGBTQ students
