From my experience in the student government, I've learned all of the different responsibilities that the President must have, and I know I can meet and exceed those expectations. I know first-hand the lack of college life on campus since the closing and "renovations" of the main building. I'm not going to magically promise sunshine and rainbows, but if I am elected President, you have my word that I will do my best to represent you and provide solid American leadership to Cerro Coso Community College. My goal is to create a campus where intellectual diversity can collide, and physical and mental health are promoted. If we share these values of intellectual growth and self-betterment, then vote for me: Peter Parker...err I mean: Samuel Kelley. Thank you!
