Sunny Zia Enters Race For Long Beach Community College Board of Trustees
2013-11-06 · By Editor
Downtown resident Sunny Zia announced her candidacy today for Long Beach Community College’s 3rd District. The district encompasses most of Council Districts 1 and 2.
“I am running to bring new leadership to the Long Beach Community College Board of Trustees and fight for affordable education for all,” said Zia. Her platform includes putting an end to the anti-student two-tier tuition system, increasing access to vocational programs, and reinvesting in the local Long Beach economy.
“Long Beach Community College is the training ground for students who want to go on to a four year university and who want to gain the skills needed to quickly join the workforce. And as a trustee it is our job to ensure that any student who wants that opportunity has it,” Zia said.
Currently Sunny is the Contract Compliance Manager at the Port of Long Beach and responsible for oversight of all contracting practices estimated to be at $4 Billion over the next decade. She was recently appointed by Congressman Alan Lowenthal as the Chair of his Citizen advisory Committee on Human Rights and Foreign Affairs and has been a leader in the non-profit and philanthropic communities. She looks forward to bringing her experience with City government, business, labor, and the community together to serve the best interest of the Long Beach Community College District.
