I ask for your vote for Orange County Board Education to assure excellence for students, empowerment for parents and transparency for taxpayers.
Parents need local options for their children and a voice in their education. Taxpayers want more funds directed to the classroom, less to administrative overhead. Teachers deserve fair compensation to attract the best talent, and to be held to the highest standards.
I'm a father of five, with four still attending public schools. I'm a member of the PTA at both Beechwood School and Fullerton High School. I attend Wilshire Avenue Church and am fluent in Spanish.
I've dedicated my life to public service:
- 24-year classroom teacher
- Brea Teacher of the Year
- Mayor of Fullerton
- Chair of the Orange County Board of Supervisors
- State Legislator
- Vice Chair of the Assembly Education Committee
I've worked with both Governors Schwarzenegger and Brown on structural budget reforms to restore over $4,000,000,000 annually in redevelopment funds to education. I support local curriculum control and oppose top-down federal mandates like Common Core.
My endorsements include Anaheim Mayor Tom Tait, Orange County Supervisors Shawn Nelson and Michelle Park Steel and parents across Anaheim, Fullerton, Buena Park, Placentia and La Habra.
Call or text me at (714) 813-5899. Together, let's rededicate ourselves to educational excellence for all Orange County kids.
