Hello! My name is Eric Kaljumagi and I am a candidate for the Citrus College Board of Trustees, Area 2. I have been a resident of Claremont for 21 years, ever since I left my job teaching high school math in Northern California to work as a mathematics and learning assistance professor at Mt. San Antonio College (Mt. SAC).
Over the past decade I have worked to make community colleges better, serving as my college's academic senate president and more recently as the president of the Mt. SAC Faculty Association. I am currently the president of the Community College Association (CCA), an advocacy group of community college faculty that fights to preserve quality education. CCA is the higher education affiliate of the California Teachers Association.
I look forward to using the knowledge I've gained to contribute to my community by serving on the Citrus College Board. I am proud to have earned the endorsement of the Citrus College Faculty Association, making me the only candidate who has been endorsed by Citrus College's teachers. Please click on the "About Eric" and "Issues" links above to learn more about me and what I stand for. In addition, I recently was interviewed on "Claremont Speaks." The podcast of the interview is at this link.
If you'd like to learn more about this election and the candidates, two candidate forums have been released to YouTube, one from the League of Women Voters of the Mt. Baldy Area and the other from Active Claremont.
