New senators elected

The first ASCC Senate meeting was held on Sept. 16, ushering in another chapter of new faces and fresh ideas for this semester’s elected body.

First time senator Joseph Silva was elected as Senate liasion has his sights on what he can do as an ASCC Senator.

“I hope to address any issues between the students and faculty, especially right now with our economic issues. Our biggest issue will be funding and where funds will be going.”

Silva hails from Virginia and plans on attending UC Berkley in the future. He has experience working with unions and organizing union activities and plans on applying his expertise as an effective mediator for both staff and student this semester.

Suzette Vega would like to use her first term as senator to further inform the student body of all the benefits they may be entitled to.

“I would like to the students to be more involved, especially the people that have been here only one semester, let them know all the benefits Cerritos College has to offer.”

Vega is a returning student from the professional world.

The owner of her own real estate brokerage business, receiving her real estate license at 18 and her broker’s license at 22, Vega plans on receiving her degree at Cerritos College for liberal arts before pursuring her academic career at Cal State Long Beach.

She plans on proposing an electronic bulletin board to replace the old paper method.

She also plans on using her real-life experiences in her position as senator.

“I came into this campus feeling that anything was possible because of all the hurdles and challenges that I had to overcome, being so young, being a woman, all the hurdles that we all go through. It taught me so much.

“I am a firm advocate that education is valuable and it is a foundation of everything we do but I think it also needs to be incorporated with what we learned in the real world as far as its theory and its practice and when we combine those is when, I think, we have the most success.”
