Sierra College Trustees handle a $69 million budget.

Trustee Nancy Palmer, working long and hard for the best education for students, puts the best interests of the taxpayers ahead of entrenched “political” interests. Candidate Dan Sokol is intelligent and practical, able to discern and willing to choose fiscal integrity over political expediency.
