(Victorville)– Joseph W. Brady, current Trustee of the Victor Valley Community College District Board of Trustees has received the endorsement of the Vice President of the Board, Brandon A. Wood in his re-election bid for the November 2016 election.
“As the President / Chairman of the VVC Board of Trustees, Mr. Brady raised the bar for professionalism and transparency. Joe was always inviting and inclusive of all board member’s ideas, comments and suggestions,” said Wood. “There is no question that Mr. Brady always acts for the best interests of our students. He clearly analyzes every situation by asking how does this benefit students, and how does this improve the health of our institution.” Mr. Wood will serve as the President of the Board of Trustees beginning in December 2016.
Additional endorsements to Brady’s campaign include: Congressman Paul Cook, Congressman Steve Knight, State Senator Sharon Runner, State Board of Equalization Board Member George Runner, State Assemblyman Jay Obernolte, First District Supervisor and Vice Chair of the San Bernardino County Board of Supervisors Robert A. Lovingood, and Third District Supervisor Chairman of the San Bernardino County Board of Supervisors James C. Ramos, as well as San Bernardino County Superintendent of Schools Mr. Ted Alejandre. “I am extremely humbled that the majority of former Victor Valley Community College Foundation Presidents have also endorsed me”, explained Brady.
“Re-election to the Board will allow me to continue the work I have begun, concentrating on the issues at hand: supporting continued student success and ensuring that our students have full access to the classes they need from our Victor Valley Community College. One of my goals is to provide more counseling staff and offer the most advanced educational environment to our students and our teachers,” said Brady. “Mr. Wood and I have proven that we work well together to accomplish goals effectively. With Brandon serving as President of the Board closely following the election in November, we can get right to work on the issues facing the college.”
“I am extremely proud of the condition in which we find Victor Valley Community College District today in comparison to where we were when I was appointed a Trustee in February 2011,” explained Brady. “With help, advice, guidance and work by many we have regained our full accreditation, are preparing for our reaccreditation in 2017, have our first balanced budget in nearly 30 years and have dealt aggressively with a $3.5 million structural deficit,” explained Brady.
Brady is President of Joseph W. Brady, Inc., DBA The Bradco Companies, a commercial based brokerage firm in Victorville, California, Barstow Real Estate Group (Barstow), Alliance Management Group (a property management group in Barstow), and Publisher of the Bradco High Desert Report.
“I believe that the High Desert can once again position itself as an economic powerhouse, but it can only be done through an educated citizenry and skilled workforce. In order to attract industry and employers, reduce above average unemployment and offer our students and graduates an opportunity to become a part of the High Desert landscape, we need Victor Valley College to remain a first rate educational institution,” stated Brady. “When re-elected, I will work diligently to ensure that.”
