“Mike Levin will be an advocate for the students of MiraCosta and our region,” said Trustee Fischer. “His background as an environmental attorney and clean energy advocate is impressive. He is committed to making community college tuition-free and supporting quality public education,” he added.
“It is an honor to have Dr. Bill Fischer endorse our campaign,” said Levin. “He is a community leader dedicated to making higher education an effective instrument of social stability and economic progress.”
Trustee Fischer earned a doctorate in English from UC Berkeley. Fischer dedicated his professional career to education; for 33 years he taught English at State University of New York at Buffalo.
