California gubernatorial hopeful Phil Angelides will address students today at 4:45 p.m. in the MultiCultural Center Theater (MCC) about his views on higher education and improving California.
Angelides, current state treasurer, comes to the campus today to define his stance on issues of education, the environment and relieving California’s debt. A question and answer session, led by students, will follow his speech. The event is hosted by the Campus Democrats.
Angelides’ press secretary Brian Brokaw said the treasurer will explain his vision of improving the state.
“He’ll be talking about, overall, his plan of why he thinks he should be governor, but specifically with respect to higher education,” Brokaw said. “He’s got a plan called ‘College Opportunity for All,’ which is a five-point plan to increase the number of students who will be able to go to college.”
