Los Angeles Community College District


Two runoff elections are set for trustees of the Los Angeles Community College District.

Auditor Tina Park is challenging incumbent Angela Reddock for Office No. 2, and attorney Robert Nakahiro is taking on incumbent Nancy Pearlman for Office No. 6. Trustees are elected at-large to run nine campuses serving Los Angeles city and county.

Reddock, a lawyer, was appointed to the board in 2007. She said she would increase student transfer rates to four-year colleges. Nakahiro, also a lawyer, said he would fight to maintain affordability and accessibility.

Pearlman, first elected in 2001, has made green construction her primary issue, while Park, a former financial auditor, has promised better fiscal oversight.


The district enrolls 130,000 students on a $600-million budget. Trustees, who also oversee a $5.7-billion bond construction program, earn $2,000 a month if they attend meetings regularly.
