Sometimes local elections are not exciting. The Community College Board is usually such a position that does not attract attention. This time we really need to make sure we make good choices.
The Community College District is dealing with important challenges including an out of control board member that has been threatening the accreditation of the entire district and continuing budget cuts.
Two candidates are running for the area that includes Simi Valley and Moorpark. I have not yet been convinced that either is capable of dealing with these challenges.
Bernardo Perez has not been running much of a campaign. I don't know if he has addressed the issues with the accreditation.
Ash Givargis has not explained how he could help much with the accreditation process. Ash Givargis lists his ballot designation as a businessman. But that doesn't seem to be his primary occupation. He does work for the Youth Correctional Facility in Information Technologies. He is a Republican Party activist. I am not sure if that is helpful in a nonpartisan position.
