Over the years, many presidential candidates (and presidents) have visited the colleges of the DCCCD.
• Vice President
George H.W. Bush spoke at Mountain View College in 1980 as well as Eastfield College in 1986.
• President Bill Clinton visited Mountain View College during an early vote rally for Hillary Rodham Clinton’s presidential campaign in 2008.
• And then, most recently,
President Barack Obama spoke at Eastfield College in 2011.
Hillary Clinton will be the next presidential hopeful to visit the colleges of the DCCCD. Her campaign has rented the Mountain View gymnasium for a campaign rally on Tuesday, Nov. 17.
The event is open to the community, including students. Tickets will not be issued, so attendance is available on a first-come, first-served basis. The doors to the gym will open at noon, and the program is scheduled to begin at 1:15 p.m.
