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.
