Friends and Neighbors,

After a week of careful watching, the math is increasingly clear that, sadly, it does not appear I can overcome my opponent’s lead in the race for Long Beach City College Trustee.

I congratulate Ms. Chico on a race well-run and wish her nothing but the very best as a Trustee of the institution I know both of us love and hold dear.

How fortunate I am to have the best friends and supporters that any candidate could ask for.  Because of all of you we will garner more than 20,000 votes, which is itself is record-breaking for a LBCC race.

I am grateful to you for your generosity and support and I hope that someday I will be able to be of help to you. I have been involved with the College and our community for decades, that certainly will not change.

In the meantime stay in touch and stay well.

All the best,

Dick Gaylord
