David Sandino is running for
Los Rios Community College District Board of Trustees
I am an active member of my community, having served as a board member on five different commissions, including the Planning Commission, Police Advisory Commission, Natural Resources Commission and Finance & Budget Commission. I have served as legal advisor to both local and state government boards. Additionally, I provided volunteer legal representation for those in need through the Northern California Legal Services.
I am a professor of law, teaching water law, environmental law, energy law and other courses at Sacramento State University, Santa Clara University School of Law, Lincoln Law School of Sacramento, UC Davis Extension and other colleges. These experiences gave me a strong understanding of the educational needs of students both for college transfer and career education. I currently serve as a water and energy attorney for the State of California working to help solve water and energy problems in the state. Appointed by Governor Schwarzenegger, I served as Chief Counsel for the California Department of Water Resources and understand how to guide large organizations. I represented the US through the Fulbright Program as a law professor teaching international law in Russia. I have a small business background, managing a family real estate business. I have negotiated dozens contracts and successfully worked with residents, large companies, and other small businesses.
My immediate focus is to help guide Los Rios community colleges through the educational and budget hardships stemming from the pandemic. My long-term focus is to improve access to the colleges and improve career training programs. I would serve as an ethical, transparent, and hard-working trustee representing all members of the Los Rios community.
Los Rios community colleges provide career training and college transfer education for over 70,000 students in the region. There are 4 home campuses--Sacramento City, American River, Cosumnes River, and Folsom--and 7 satellites campuses including West Sacramento, Elk Grove, and Davis. This system provides more than $2 billion in economic benefits to the region.
I wish to thank the many voters who supported me on election day. I am very honored and appreciative of your support. When our paths cross in the future, I look forward to meeting you and thanking you in person.
The goal of education is the advancement of knowledge and the dissemination of truth.
- John Kennedy
