• League of Women Voters Citizen of Achievement

• San Bernardino City Unified School District Visual and Performing Arts Committee

• President, Kiwanis Club of Highland

Last November, I was appointed College Trustee and since that time have fought for you and helped deliver significant results:

• Hired new presidents for San Bernardino Valley College and Crafton Hills College

• Won restoration of full accreditations for both colleges

• Began the District’s long-term strategic plan

• Provide transparency and inclusion during Board Meetings

Vote for Dr. Anne L. Viricel for San Bernardino Community College District Trustee so I can continue to fight for you and the young adults in our community! I am not a politician; I am simply a concerned citizen and educator looking to use my skills to give back to our community and I would greatly appreciate your support.

  • Cut excessive administrators pay and use the money for teachers and students

Taxpayers and students need more classes for an education that will lead to a good job.  They don't need overpaid administrators, like the current board hires. The board paid the Chancellor $385,000 a year.  The board has THREE different administrations for two colleges with just 8000 full time students.  The board pays the Chancellor and two college presidents over $800,000 a year.  The board pays 75 administrators over $100,000 per year.  That is TOO MUCH! n  I want to use that money for more classes.  

For 30 years, I've managed my business.  The board needs the perspective of a business owner.  Currently, every board member is a academic.  

Teaching business law at CalState San Bernardino, showed me that our students are eager to learn and want to succeed.  Wasting money on overpaid administrators doesn't help them.

 

 

Teaching business law at CalState San Bernardino showed me that the education industry has failed our students.  They haven't been taught the basics about how government and ecconomy was intended to work.  They don't know that they were born with constituional rights, instead they have been taught that their rights were granted to them by the government.  They don't know how the free enterprise economy works or how it has made the US the greatest county in the history of the world.  They don't know the true story of our founders, why the founders insisted on the right to bear arms, of free speech and to practice one's faith of choice

If elected, I want our students to have the chance to take a class the learn about America and why it is the greatest country ever.
