Daniel Dodge
For Cabrillo Community College, Trustee Area 5

Occupation: Legislative Field Representative                       Age: 59

I have served our community on various boards, commissions and task forces for over 25 years. I would like to bring my knowledge and experience in public service and government to the Cabrillo College Board of Trustees.

Community Colleges are assuming a more important role in the education of our youth and preparing them to succeed in the modern workforce. Cabrillo College will need to facilitate opportunities for positive educational and employment outcomes for all in our community in the future.

I will use my advocacy skills and collaboration experience to assist Cabrillo College in implementing innovative programs that have proven to help students succeed in college. I will work hard for establishing 4 year degree programs at Cabrillo to create a valuable regional workforce.

A partial record of my service to our community:

City of Watsonville - Mayor and Council Member

Santa Cruz Metro Transit District – Chairperson

United Way – Community Hero Award

Pajaro Valley Prevention and Student Assistance - Board Member

Pajaro Valley Community Health Trust - Board Member

I would be honored to serve as Trustee for Area 5 on the Cabrillo College Board of Trustees.
