New chapter president elected

A new chapter president for the Los Angeles College Faculty Guild has been confirmed.

Fernando Oleas, Chair of the Modern Language Department, was elected the new president in a race that came down to a 129 and 90 vote against candidate Joseph Perret, Computer Applications and Office Technologies instructor.

“I was very pleased with the outcome,” Perret said. “I want to congratulate Fernando on his win.”

Perret echoed the sentiments on his Facebook.

“Congratulations to Fernando. Thanks to all who supported me. It was close 39 votes, so I think my message of Peace-Participation- and Progress resonated with the faculty. Let’s work together to make some of these changes happen.”

Oleas was unable to be reached for comment at time of print.
