Dear Friends.

I am pleased to announce my candidacy for re-election to the Board of Trustees of the South Orange County Community College District.

As a strong fiscal conservative, I have focused on ensuring our precious tax dollars provide the best possible education and training at Saddleback College and Irvine Valley College—two of the state’s top 10 community colleges.  

Last year, my fellow trustees elected me as President of the Board of Trustees, affirming their confidence in my leadership. I am proud that since joining the Board of Trustees, Saddleback College and Irvine Valley College have made tremendous gains for our students and community.  Here are a few of their accomplishments:

  • Out of the 113 California community colleges, Saddleback College and Irvine Valley College consistently have the highest student transfers to prestigious four-year colleges and universities, and award over 5,000 degrees and certificates each year.
  • Offering over 100 career technical education programs that prepare students for the demands of the 21st century workforce.
  • Enhancing the diverse social and cultural landscape of South Orange County through high quality dance, music, theater and other performing arts.
  • Serving over 8,000 senior citizens through their Emeritus Institutes of lifelong learning. 
  • Offers state and nationally renowned men’s and women’s athletics.
  • Adding new and renovated facilities and expanding classroom and lab space with no new taxes or debt.
  • Creating sustainable and environmentally responsible campuses.
  • Raising record amounts of scholarship donations benefitting several thousand students.       

Serving over 900,000 residents from San Clemente to Tustin, Saddleback College and Irvine Valley College enroll over 58,000 students each year.  Maintaining the quality and affordability of both colleges are vital to strengthening our local economy, and positively impacting the quality of life for all in South Orange County.    

I am asking for your support of my reelection campaign so that we can continue the success of the South Orange County Community College District and its two colleges.

If you able, please make a contribution to help me continue representing you and our community interests: http://www.timjemalfortrustee.com/donate.html

Also, please send me a note if you support my re-election to the Board of Trustees.

It’s truly as honor to serve on the board and represent South Orange County residents.

Warm regards

 

Timothy Jemal 

President, Board of Trustees

South Orange County Community College District
