Voters on Tuesday affirmed their confidence in the Glendale Community College leadership, reelecting Tony Tartaglia and Vahe Peroomian to the board of trustees at a time when the college faces unprecedented budget cuts.
“I am excited that the voters are expressing their confidence in their incumbents,” Tartaglia said. “It is a vindication that we made the right choices. It is a feeling of confidence that this college is moving in the right direction.”
The incumbents cited an ongoing effort to gather community input on the direction of the college, as well as enhanced career tech programs, as some important recent accomplishments.
“It really feels good,” Peroomian said of his win. “I think we have a solid bond between the city and the college. The college is not just a college in the middle of town, it is a vital part of the city.”
The current board also set Glendale Community College on the right path when it hired current President/Supt. Dawn Lindsay, Peroomian said.
