“I bring extensive leadership experience from the education, business, civic and philanthropic sectors to the responsibilities and decision making required of a PCC trustee.“
I’ve been on the Board 40 years and worked with some legendary Trustees. Jim Osterling is one of the best. He’s passionate for student success, congenial to everyone and brilliant in understanding the complexities of Community College budgets and finance. Pasadena City College is the undisputed best college in the state, and Jim Osterling is a meaningful part of that success.
It is with great pride that we provide this letter of support for Jim Osterling.
Jim has been a tremendous contributor of his talent and expertise as a member of the Villa Riviera Real Estate Co. (VRE) Board of Directors for the past nine years.
His perspective has been instrumental in providing guidance to management on the development of a unique housing project (Bella Riviera) that features 81 employee affordable housing and 34 market housing units on a complex, former hospital site in a residential neighborhood of Santa Barbara.
The five-member VRE Board had been tasked to provide oversight for the development and Jim and his colleagues have exercised great judgement in their capacity as Board members.
We are confident that Jim’s background and experience will be invaluable as a public servant.
