Pasadena small business owner, longtime neighborhood association president, and city commissioner, Tammy Silver on Monday announced her candidacy for the Pasadena City College Board of Trustees, Area 4.

Silver saod she is running because PCC needs leadership with vision to help its students achieve excellence. By combining her passion for education with a strong business sense, she said, sher wants to ensure that PCC is the best run, most outstanding community college in all of California.

“Too few students are transferring to a four-year college, earning a certificate or earning an AA/AS degree. The college isn’t offering enough courses to prepare students for a twenty-first century economy. And, students are burdened with high out-of-pocket expenses for housing, transportation and books,” says Silver. “Pasadena City College needs to focus on achieving success by establishing stable and transparent leadership that listens to the needs of its students, faculty and staff.”

Silver has been happily married to her husband Michael for over 30 years. Their elder son Daniel is currently a Ph.D. student in educational policy and their younger son, Jeffrey is a college student. Silver currently serves as the President of the Oak Knoll Neighborhood Association and sits on the South Lake Parking Place Commission. She also serves as the Chair of the Finland subcommittee with Pasadena Sister Cities and is a Tournament of Roses, Formation Area Committee member.
