Michael Martin, running for governing board trustee in Area 7, said that as a Winters resident, he could represent his rural district on the Solano Community College board well.
“I understand the issues of smaller communities and rural lifestyle and feel I would bring a new voice to the governing board of trustees,” he said.
Martin said that Jowel Laguerre, Solano College’s superintendent and president, contacted him in 2008, when he was mayor of Winters, to help bring a stronger presence of the college there. Laguerre partnered with the school district and Martin to bring the first college classes to Winters. If elected, Martin said he would bring more classes to Winters and Dixon.
