Jozef Thomas Essavi, a resident of Los Angeles for 20 years, is married to Nina and is blessed with three children. Jozef is currently serving as Los Angeles County Commissioner.

Jozef is a product of Los Angeles Valley College and was elected and re-elected as the ASB Union Treasurer in the 90's and was unanimously nominated from LAVC to become LACCD Student Trustee. Jozef knows the inner workings of LACCD, its flaws and positive aspects and has worked with faculty, staff and administrators in a fair and balanced fashion. He went on to receive his BA from UCR and MA from Cal State Northridge. He is committed to the district's taxpayers and Proposition 13 and to accountability and responsibility. He is committed to full student access to education, lower unit fees, and expanded scholarship programs and can not accept the current 51% high rates of graduation failures among District's students. He is committed to teacher tenure rather than shuttling between campuses. He is committed to giving independence to each of the nine campuses and their administrators. Jozef Thomas Essavi will be "a Trustee for all of us".
