“I am the leader and motivator in a time of crisis,” said Linda Lacy, one of five presidential finalists for Cerritos College, on Tuesday at a public forum in Cerritos College at 4 p.m.

Lacy was scheduled first of five candidates participating in a public forum at Cerritos College this week.

Lacy made it clear that the struggling economy and tight budget would be at the top of her priority list if elected president of the college.
Lacy expressed her optimism, despite the 14 million dollar budget cut Cerritos will undergo, saying, “If you stop planning and stop dreaming when you don’t have any money, you will never look forward. You need to imagine.”
