When asked about her recent announcement to seek the Los Angeles Community College District Board of Trustees Sydney says, "Why Not! Representation is very important to me. The work I do now is centered around making sure all voices are brought to the table and heard. Fighting for policies that support women and working families, and center on issues that are critical to someone like me (education, access, jobs, quality of life) may not be sexy, but they impact success in our communities. LAAAWPPI was founded to ensure that women of color have a pipeline to leadership, mostly to ensure that representation is diverse. Running for LACCD is the next step in this kind of advocacy that I have been part of much of my professional career. The community college district is a critical pillar in the success of our communities. It represents opportunity and is a gateway to the middle class. I want to keep that pipeline open. I want to strengthen its ability to serve all communities. I want to expand its reach."
Ms. Kamlager also notes, "LAAAWPPI is a tremendous resource and a great training ground for preparing someone to run for office. It is a support system like no other and it is definitely part of the reason why I am running for LACCD in 2015."
