"First Generation American....
speaks out for education."

Ensure your advocacy on the Cuesta College Board of Trustees by re-electing me, Marie "Maggie" Kiersch, as your trustee.

As an active advocate, I am committed to responsible spending of taxpayers' hard earned dollars.

My parents immigrated to America to ensure that the education denied to them would be afforded to me. I am most appreciative of the sacrifice they made and to the educational institutions I have attended. Because of my personal experiences, I have a strong commitment to provide for those who now seek to study, to learn, and to update their skills.

Cuesta College offers such an avenue for each individual. However, the Governor's budget reduces funding for programs which directly effect our students. To continue to provide access for all of our students is going to be the major challenge facing the Board of Trustees.

As the only professional educator on the Board, my experience includes the following:

English/Speech/Biology Instructor
Women's Basketball Coach
Assistant Dean of Students
Cuesta College Coordinator of Special Services for Displaced Homemakers

This experience acquaints me with the problems and possible solutions facing Cuesta College.

I look forward to the opportunity of working with you as we strive to provide the best education possible for our students.

Your vote for Marie "Maggie" Kiersch will be appreciated.
