Sharon Quirk-Silva Ready for Fall Campaign
“Standing up for working families to end the partisan gridlock”
(Fullerton, CA)—With Tuesday’s Primary Election now over, and having won the right to move on to the General Election, Sharon Quirk-Silva today defined the race for the 65th Assembly District:
“This race is a campaign about someone who will stand up for working families in Orange County versus a career partisan politician,” said Quirk-Silva. “It’s about choosing between someone who’ll work to end the gridlock in Sacramento and someone who will perpetuate it.
“The 65th Assembly District needs a leader who will work to rebuild our aging infrastructure, increase renewable energy resources and promote clean environmental technology. We need to reward companies who create jobs here instead of giving them tax breaks for shipping jobs overseas. Let’s start by closing tax loopholes for millionaires, the big oil companies and big banks, and instead invest in California to create jobs here. In Sacramento, my priorities will be simple—stop the partisan bickering, listen to my constituents, and work in a bipartisan way to move California forward. We need to be flexible, and we need to get results. We need to put people back to work, ensure quality affordable health care, and provide a first-rate education system to give our children the tools they need to compete,” concluded Quirk-Silva.
Sacramento Assemblyman Chris Norby will be running for his third term in the Assembly, where he has maintained a partisan record of opposing any kind of investment in the local economy, public schools or alternative energy.
Sharon Quirk-Silva is an elementary school teacher who has built a solid reputation on the Fullerton City Council and as mayor for protecting working families and standing up to special interests. She’ll work across the aisle to transform the way the state does business.
“I am very excited to have quickly built such a broad coalition of support within our district. I have the support of teachers, law enforcement, environmental groups, women’s organizations, firefighters and many other elected leaders and community members. I look forward to campaigning throughout the summer and fall to share my vision of ending gridlock and putting Orange County’s families first,” she said.
