Pasadena Library Commissioner and Non-Profit Attorney Kenny Rotter Launches Campaign for PCC Board of Trustees

Published : Wednesday, October 16, 2019 | 11:08 AM

Pasadena Public Library Commissioner and non-profit attorney, Kenny Rotter today announced his candidacy for the Pasadena City College Board of Trustees, Area 2. Rotter is running to address some of the most pressing issues facing PCC today, including the need to ease the burden of student loans, enhance mental health resources, and increase occupational certificate programs.

“I’ve never missed a student loan payment over the last nine years, and I still haven’t put $1 towards my principal. That’s simply absurd” says Rotter. “The PCC Board of Trustees needs to focus on the issues that matter most to students so we can equip them for the 21st century job market. By drowning them in out-of-pocket expenses and not providing the support they need to thrive, we are putting our students at a severe disadvantage. The upcoming election gives us the opportunity to change that, and that’s why I decided to run.”

In 2018, Rotter was appointed by Mayor Terry Tornek to serve on the Pasadena Public Library Commission, where he works to support Pasadena’s ten branch libraries. As a non-profit attorney, Rotter has worked for the California Correctional Peace Officers’ Association, the Arizona Attorney General’s Office in Child Support Services, and the UMOM New Day Centers, providing free legal advice to victims of domestic violence.

Rotter is deeply involved in community service locally and serves as the legislative lead for the San Gabriel Chapter of Mom’s Demand Action, a non-partisan gun responsibility non-profit. He is also active with the voter registration group Headcount and is a member of the Social Justice Committee at the Pasadena Jewish Temple and Center. Before earning his law degree from the George Washington University Law School in Washington DC, Rotter graduated Summa Cum Laude from Arizona State University.
