Dr. Victor Olivieri - Community College Board Candidate


Experienced Leadership for the San Francisco Community College Board

I’m an immigrant and first-generation college graduate who struggled through the public school system and ESL classes, and went on to become an EMT through my community college. Since then, I have become an US Army Officer, earned a PhD in political science, served as a senior university administrator in the UC system, and taught as college professor. I currently serve as the President of the San Francisco Veterans Affairs Commission and as Co-Chair of the California Democratic Party Resolutions Committee, and I'm here today to ask you for your vote on the San Francisco Community College Board so I can help guide City College in the right direction and make sure it is stronger than ever for the next generation.

In 2016, I was appointed by Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi to serve as a delegate to the California Democratic Party and selected to serve on the CA Democratic Party Resolutions Committee to put my Ph.D. in Political Science to work for the people of our State. In 2018, I was elected by the voters of San Francisco in Assembly District 17 to continue my service to the CA Democratic Party and I was subsequently appointed by CA Democratic Party Chair Rusty Hicks as Co-Chair to the CA Democratic Party Resolutions Committee, where I have now worked on over 600 resolutions since 2016. I'm proud to advocate for practical progressive policies that champion social equity, environmental sustainability, and lifelong education with an emphasis on our underserved communities.

I'm a dynamic public servant with fifteen years of senior management experience leading major initiatives, implementing rigorous academic programs and overseeing college budgets, and cultivating cross-functional teams in public, private, and non-profit sectors.

I believe in public service and I look forward to hearing from you, working with you, and being your voice on the San Francisco Community College Board.

Victor Olivieri, Ph.D.

Victor has taught hundreds of students as an educator and improved the lives of students, faculty, and staff as a senior university administrator. Here are the voices of a few of them.
"Victor has shown his commitment to education, opportunities and students, but most importantly, he has shown that he can, and has, 'served those who could do nothing for him.' I believe that this is one of the most important qualities that a leader can possess." "Victor is the kind of person that genuinely cares about others. I really want to see more people like him in government. I’m so excited that he’s running because I can’t wait to see all the things he can do."
