One Week to Go and a Video

With one week to go in this campaign, I'm leaving no stone unturned and I hope you can help me: Please sign up to volunteer for GOTV (Get Out The Vote) between now and Election Day.

I'm honored to have earned endorsements from so many strong leaders who inspire me, from Lieutenant Governor (and the next Governor of California!) Gavin Newsom, Board of Equalization Member (and the next Treasurer of California!) Fiona Ma, CPA, Congresswoman and House Democratic Leader (and the next Speaker of the House!) Nancy Pelosi, and of so many others!

As a first-time candidate, so much high profile support has made people take notice of our campaign, but it's your support that has truly fueled our campaign. Your contributions make it so that we can buy campaign materials (we just picked up 2,000 more flyers today!), and your volunteer campaigning made it so that we've visited every corner of the city and reached thousands of voters.

Please help in this final week however you can, whether with a contribution to help pay for those flyers we picked up today, or by volunteering to help GOTV and get those flyers to voters over the next 7 days. Or both!

Finally, I also want to share something I recorded last week about why I'm running for City College. I'm honored to be endorsed by Run For Something, and a couple weeks ago they asked me to create this, and I'm glad I did. Please check out the video and share it on Facebook (or Twitter) to let everyone know that you're supporting Dr. Victor Olivieri for City College Board!

I wouldn't have made it this far without you. Thank you for everything you've done to help make our campaign a success!

Excited to Announce Mayor Mark Farrell’s Endorsement!

Victor Olivieri with Mayor FarrelI’m excited to announce that Mayor Mark Farrell has endorsed my campaign for City College. Mayor Farrell has brought so much to San Francisco through innovation: the Shared School Project, Free WiFi for Parks, a city-owned fiber internet network, and solving a massive $4.4 billion unfunded retiree healthcare liability.

Mayor Farrell’s forward-thinking leadership and problem-solving approach has brought innovation, fiscal responsibility, and growth to City Hall, and I would be proud to bring the same to City College.

Victor Olivieri with Board President London BreedGreat news from the campaign trail: Board of Supervisors President London Breed has endorsed my campaign to become your next City College Trustee!

I’m proud to have earned this important endorsement from a leader who understands the importance of education. President Breed has a strong track record of serving San Francisco, whether it's building new affordable and market-rate housing, helping the homeless get off the streets, or modernizing and enhancing Muni. She’s also fought to improve public safety, stood up for the environment by acting on climate change, and works every day for safe, clean streets for all.

Major New Endorsement: Senator Scott Wiener!

Victor Olivieri and Senator WienerToday, I’m proud to announce that Senator Scott Wiener has endorsed my campaign to become your next City College Trustee!

I look forward to partnering with Senator Wiener as a tireless advocate for housing and transportation for the City College community. He has championed affordable housing and streamlined new housing construction with SB 35, enhanced immigrant tenant rights by co-authoring AB 291 with Assemblymember David Chiu, and fought for “complete streets,” solar, and many other approaches to making San Francisco more sustainable.

Lowering Barriers to Education

Last week, the City College Trustees voted to increase the student worker hourly wage to match the San Francisco city minimum hourly wage of $14 per hour. This is great news and will help lower barriers to education. This is one of the reasons I am running for City College, and is part of my Plan for City College. I applaud the Trustees and, in particular, the efforts of former Student Trustee Bouchra Simmons for this critical increase in student wages, and for the foresight to link this change to San Francisco City Law so that the wages will continue to rise along with the city’s minimum wage. This was long overdue and exactly the type of work I will prioritize as a Trustee.

Endorsed by Assemblymember David Chiu!

Victor and DavidToday, I’m proud to announce that Assemblymember David Chiu has endorsed my campaign to become your next City College Trustee!

I am so honored. This year, Assemblymember Chiu authored Assembly Bill 19 to provide one year of free community college to first-time students with the “California College Promise.” And just this week, Governor Brown signed this important bill that will help over 19,000 students statewide. Thank you for your bold leadership, David Chiu.

This is exactly the type of leadership we need in Sacramento and for City College.

This Campaign is About Listening

This campaign is about listening: Listening to our community. Listening to you. Listening to our students, staff, and faculty.

For the next year, I will be talking with students throughout the various centers and main campus, meeting with as many Deans and Department Chairs throughout City College that I can, and reaching out to the leaders of our unions, organized groups, and student associations. My campaign promise is to listen, learn, and champion the issues that are important to our community.
