Mayor Ed Lee has appointed Rodrigo Santos, a structural engineer, to City College’s Board of Trustees, reports the Bay Guardian. Santos will fill the vacancy left by Milton Marks, who died Aug. 9 of complications from a brain tumor.

According to the Guardian, Santos was not active in education issues before running for a seat on the Board of Trustees. Lee referred to Santos as “someone who shares my vision of reform and will support the tough decisions ahead.”
