The Citizens' Bond Oversight Committee was established in 2004 and is responsible for overseeing the college's use of bond funds and for serving as a "check-and-balance" to ensure that the bond proceeds are only used for the projects included in the bond measure project list. Each committee member serves a term of two years.
"Cerritos College is an asset to the community, and I wish to see it continue to thrive," said Brossmer about his desire to join the committee.
Brossmer brings a wealth of experience to the oversight committee. Annually, he oversees a $7 million annual budget at Downey Adult School, which serves more than 14,000 students each year. Since 2000, Brossmer has actively served on the City of Downey Planning Commission. He also serves as the chairperson for the American Cancer Society's annual 24-hour relay in Downey and is a youth director for Rotary International.
"We're so pleased to have Roger join the committee," said Donna Jones, chairperson for the Citizens' Bond Oversight Committee.
"His familiarity with our community and students, along with his experience in educational administration, are incredibly valuable to the committee in ensuring the success of Cerritos College's bond management process."
