 FULLERTON, CA—Classroom teacher and 65th Assembly District candidate Sharon Quirk-Silva today announced receiving the endorsement of California Lieutenant Governor Gavin Newsom in the race for State Assembly.

“Lt. Governor Newsom is a bold leader who has taken strong positions on issues that profoundly affect California and the nation,” said Quirk-Silva. “He’s not afraid to make what he feels is the right choice even when it may not be popular.

“That’s the kind of principled, independent standard that I hold myself to.”

During her service in the State Assembly, Quirk-Silva passed legislation authorizing a veteran’s cemetery in Orange County, wrote the law expanding the California Competes program to help small businesses, and brought nearly $50 million to improve Orange County roads and freeways.

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.
