COAST COMMUNITY COLLEGE BOARD MEMBERS ENDORSE EDUCATOR SHARON QUIRK-SILVA

FULLERTON, CA—Classroom teacher and 65th Assembly District candidate Sharon Quirk-Silva today announced receiving the endorsement of three local Orange County community college trustees.

Coast Community College District Trustees Jim Moreno, Jerry Patterson, and Dr. Lorraine Prinsky have given their support to Quirk-Silva’s campaign citing her strong record and commitment to improving California’s K-12, community college, and university systems.

“Community colleges are critical to a stronger, more vibrant California,” said Quirk-Silva. “They serve over 2 million Californians every year, aiding them with educational services ranging from workforce training, transfer opportunities to CSU and UC schools, and adult education.

“I am grateful for the confidence Dr. Prinsky, Mr. Moreno, and Mr. Patterson have placed in me,” Quirk-Silva continued.

Quirk-Silva currently teaches 3rd grade and has spent 30 years teaching in the Fullerton School District. She is the former Mayor of Fullerton and served in the Assembly from 2012-2014.

The 65th Assembly District includes Buena Park, Cypress, Fullerton, La Palma, Stanton and most of West Anaheim.
