Students cast votes for Cerritos College Board of Trustees, or do they?

Norwalk, Calif- The Board of Trustees elections for Cerritos College were held on Tuesday, Nov  8.

Students were able to go out and vote not only for the future president but members of the Board of Trustees for their school.

Students had the chance and make their vote count for the future of the college but seemed many did not plan to vote.

Jeff Morris, major in law administration of Justice said, “No, I don’t think so, I don’t think I am going to vote, I got a pretty full schedule.”

Other students at Cerritos College had little to no knowledge of the election.

Jesus Sanchez stated, “No, I don’t even know what that is or what it even consists of.”

He then went on to say why he didn’t know about the elections “I think it’s because there’s never anyone saying anything about.”

Sanchez further stated ways on how the school could reach out to the students about the elections to make them vote.

“Maybe they can put it on billboards, I don’t know, but they should make it a public announcement to grab people’s attention to make sure they know what it is.”

Sandra Salazar with 50.96 percent while Rosa Barragan and Tom Chavez had 28.78 and 20.26 percent respectively.
