Dear Tod,


The League is currently seeking three regional representatives to implement our expanded budget advocacy effort. The positions are funded for twelve months through voluntary contributions from our community college districts, and the representatives will be coordinating local activities and information among colleges, legislative offices, and the media relating to the ongoing budget crisis.

It is clear that we need to organize like never before to ensure that we keep the doors open so that our students and communities have access to the tools our colleges provide to most quickly rebound from this economic crisis.


We have posted the positions on employment websites and distributed the job announcements to all of our colleges. But, I want to also turn to you, our cadre of dedicated college advocates. The positions will be competitive--hundreds of resumes arrived yesterday and today--but we want to ensure that we get the most diverse pool of outstanding candidates possible.


Therefore, if you know of anyone who would be interested in one of the regional representative positions, please pass along the following job announcements.


We hope to fill these positions very quickly to get representatives on the ground, so please urge any possible candidates not to delay in submitting the requested materials. Resumes should be sent to Representative: Bay Area Regional Representative: Central Valley/Central Coast Regional Representative: Southern California As always, thank you for being part of this amazing advocacy effort for community colleges as we work to provide the highest quality education possible to the Californians who are counting on us.

Office of Mayor Antonio R. Villaraigosa

Director for Performance Management  

As a member of Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa’s staff, the Director for Performance Management joins with his or her colleagues to provide advice, counsel and focus on achieving results the mayor has set forth in fulfilling his role as Chief Executive Officer of the City of Los Angeles.  

The Director for Performance Management will lead and guide the Performance Management Unit (PMU), a staff of policy analysts, to review and assess progress made on mayoral initiatives designed to accomplish broader outcomes in specific focus areas of the Villaraigosa Plan.

Additionally, she or he will work with the Mayor’s senior staff to strategically plan future initiatives, including milestones and metrics, prior to initiation of a plan. The Director reports to the Mayor’s Executive Team via the Chief of Staff.  

The Director’s primary responsibility is to manage and improve policy development and implementation throughout the Mayor’s Office. This includes researching best practices and options on policy priorities by conducting independent research to present innovative and cost-effective solutions to entrenched operational problems, problem solving where there are undue and unnecessary delays to progress, as well as identifying potential problems and resolutions.  

The Director will meet on a regular basis with the Mayor to report on performance of the Mayor’s office and city departments. These sessions include an overall assessment of the progress on priority initiatives, significant milestones or accomplishments, emerging issues that may require future attention or may cause delays or hindrances to achieving the initiative’s goal, and robust recommendations for moving forward. 

The Director will work with staff to develop and refine the performance and management accountability tracking and reporting process. She or he will guide staff to develop metrics, operational and financial, to be used to evaluate achievement and performance through the use of baselines, milestones, and trajectories to measure progress. Together, they will develop and refine the performance and management accountability tracking and reporting process used by the Mayor’s office to foster the delivery of results by departments more quickly.  

The Director will guide staff to reach out to departments and teams throughout the City to assist personnel in implementing performance measures. This consultation process educates policy teams and departments as well as ensures the Mayor’s budgetary and policy goals are reflected in each department’s operations, within the context of the established strategic plan. Utilizing the Mayor’s website, the Director will share progress on the strategic plan, developing clear and understandable information.  The ideal candidate will have demonstrated executive leadership and consulting skills. Personal characteristics required include: consensus builder, problem solver, ability to move between theory and practice, entrepreneurial, articulate, demonstrated leadership, energetic and an adroit manager. The work itself requires great resiliency, creativity, resourcefulness and tenacity. The director works inside the city structure and on occasion, externally throughout the community. An important characteristic is a well-developed capacity for public speaking on complex issues along with the ability to motivate others and garner both support and resources to accomplish the work.  

The role of PMU director requires an understanding of the function and structure of local government in general, and of the City of Los Angeles, in particular. The importance of public service as a noble calling is a deeply held value of Mayor Villaraigosa and must be shared by all who work for his administration.
