Rey Blanco is running for president — at least if he gets enough signatures from his San Jose City College classmates to get on the ballot for the upcoming student government election.
At 36, Blanco is in his first semester of community college, and for the first time in his life he’s embracing school. He’s already vice president and treasurer of the media club and produces a weekly podcast for the college radio station. Plus he’s taking 18 credits, more than a full-time course load, because he wants to transfer to a four-year school as soon as possible.
