QUIRK-SILVA AGAIN LEADS FUNDRAISING AMONG TARGETED CHALLENGERS IN 2016

FULLERTON, CA—Full-time classroom teacher and 65th Assembly District candidate Sharon Quirk-Silva today reported having the highest cash-on-hand total and the most funds remaining after debt of any Democratic candidate in California challenging a Republican incumbent.

After raising $163,294 so far this year, Quirk-Silva has $264,602 left on hand heading into the June 7th primary.

“Sharon’s running a strong, focused campaign, which is made even more impressive given the fact that she teaches a 3rd grade class full-time,” said Assembly Speaker and former CSU Fullerton adjunct professor Anthony Rendon.

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.

    Peachy.

    But why has she endorsed a candidate for the 29th State Senate seat, Mr. Sukhee Kang of Irvine, who didn’t even live in the district until months after he announced his candidacy? Presumably it’s because she was told to and she does what she is told.

    Or maybe now, unlike 2014, she really digs carpetbaggers
