Endorsements


“BAYMEC is overjoyed to announce our early endorsement of Adam Spickler for Cabrillo College Board of Trustees. His experience and knowledge make us confident that he would be an outstanding member of the Cabrillo College Board who will fight for all students to get the education they deserve.  Adam is thoughtful, effective, dynamic and has been a champion for the Santa Cruz County LGBTQ community for years. He would be the first openly trans official on the Cabrillo Board. If elected, he may also be the only out, trans-male elected official anywhere in the state of California.” Paul Escobar, BAYMEC Board President

“I am pleased to endorse Adam Spickler for Board Trustee at Cabrillo Community College. I know Adam to be a man of integrity, compassion, capacity, and commitment. We are indeed fortunate that he is willing to serve our college and community.” CA Senate Majority Leader Bill Monning
