February 16, 2016


State Assembly candidate and Palo Alto City Councilmember Marc Berman has earned the endorsement of the Foothill-De Anza Faculty Association.

“I am honored to have the support of the Foothill-De Anza Faculty Association,” Berman said. “Their members are working tirelessly to educate the next generation of leaders in Silicon Valley. Our community colleges are a critical component of our state’s economic future and play a vital role in unlocking opportunities for thousands of students who otherwise wouldn’t have access to higher education.”

The Foothill-De Anza Faculty Association represents over 2,000 faculty members who help the lives of 64,000 students a year. Since 1977, they have fought for smaller class sizes, higher salaries for staff and fair hiring practices.  

With their endorsement of Berman, the Foothill-De Anza Faculty Association joins numerous state and local leaders in supporting Berman for State Assembly, including incumbent Assemblymember Rich Gordon, Lieutenant Governor Gavin Newsom, Speaker pro Tempore Kevin Mullin, Santa Clara County Sheriff Laurie Smith, and Supervisors Don Horsley and Warren Slocum, former Supervisor Rose Jacobs Gibson, AFSCME Council 57, and the Laborers International Union of North America (LiUNA) Pacific Southwest Region.
