The 2016 election not only brought a new President to the White House, but also brought new trustees to the North Orange County Community College District’s Board of Education to lead the school district.

Ann-Marie Stinson, Ed Lopez and Art Montez were running for Trustee Area 2, a district which includes Buena Park, Stanton and Anaheim. Lopez was elected by a slim margin of a four percent lead over Montez. As a trustee, Lopez seeks to raise the standard of education and help students reach their full potential.

He has worked within education since 2006, and is currently the Commissioner of the Yorba Linda Public Library.
