NANCY PEARLMAN—BRIEF LIST OF LACCD ACCOMPLISHMENTS AND FUTURE GOALS
As in the past, I will continue to serve the community, faculty, staff, and students in the LACCD.
I got the nine billion dollar building program to be green and sustainable which changed the whole construction business in southern California so that people had to follow LEEDS. I fought construction mismanagement to the extent that I am personally being sued for forty million dollars by one bad company. Court case is in September if courts are back in operation.
I represented staff and faculty, especially part-timers, for better pay and working conditions. As the only part-timer on the board, I spoke up for more pay, especially for preparation and benefits.
I made sure that students were heard and respected and had the classes they needed. Now, they need to return to the classroom as soon as health officials say it is okay.
I worked to make the college operations sustainable so that there would be more resources (money, materials, etc.) for teaching. Most of the current trustees oppose sustainability although they publicly claim they are for it as part of their “greenwashing” efforts.
I led the effort to save Gold Creek Ecological Preserve from being sold; this unique outdoor learning environment that belongs to the LACCD and is used by all nine colleges should be better publicized and supported.
I tried to get better presidents and chancellors based on their accomplishments. I support diversity in hiring but look first at who will do the best job.
