I support Abel Guillen in his campaign to be elected to the Board of Trustees for the Peralta Community College District because: Having met and talked with him; having read his position statement on his campaign website; and most importantly I have seen how his supporters react to him when they meet him. He has their respect and all who I met where really fired up about helping him; they believe in him and I do too.
He truly is concerned with making the Peralta College system a place where students can learn the skills and gain the knowledge they need to become better more productive citizens; this is something all progressives recognise as of vital importance to our struggle to remake America into the country it should be.
Without a strong educational system, something we can no longer take for granted, the children of our nation will be unable to make a better life for themselves and by extension the rest of us. Abel understands this and has made the commitment to do something about it. I urge you to give him a hand.
