My Ballot Statement

Don Singer Campaign Statement

Attached above is my official campaign ballot statement.  Every voter in the community college district will have a sample ballot mailed to them.  This same statement above will appear in the sample ballot statement.

In the next four years, my focus is making more of our local high school students aware of the opportunity to improve their lives – without building up massive student loan debt.  Our affordable community college programs can do just that.
