Meet and Greet Potential SWC Governing Board Candidates

The Southwestern College Education Association PAC is sponsoring a meet-and-greet event for potential SWC Governing Board candidates.

Greetings Community Members of SWC,

Over the last year several prominent community members have expressed interest in running for SWC Governing Board for either a recall election or in the Nov. 2010 General Election.

Three seats are up for election in the Nov. 2010. Meanwhile a recall was started in Dec. because we would not wait any longer to get the word out about the critical problems the current Governing Board majority (Ms. Roesch, Ms. Saucido, and Ms. Valladolid) is causing Southwestern College. Through their voting actions and blanket support for President Dr. Raj Chopra's they have allowed our Accreditation to be in danger for the first time in the college’s history.

They have in the least refused to listen to any input during Oral Communication by community members, students, staff, and faculty every month; and at the worst they are openly condescending to the public and fellow board members, Jorge Dominguez and Nick Aguilar.

To assist our Community to better understand the issues and what is at stake, we have organized a “Meet and Greet” open to all potential Governing Board candidates.

Where: Romesco Baja Med Bistro (in the Tapas Bar)
When: Thursday, February 11th, 2010, from 4:30 to 6:30PM.
Suggested minimum donation: $25 advance/$30 at the door. Appetizers will be provided.

All proceeds will go to the SCEA PAC to support alternative SWC Governing Board candidates running in November 2010.

This “Meet and Greet” is open to all potential Governing Board Candidates for November 2010 elections and to all interested SWC employees, community members, and friends and family.

For more details, see this flyer.

Please RSVP to Janet Mazzarella at or Andrew Rempt at

Please share this with family, friends, and business contacts. Together we can Save Our Southwestern College.
