(San Ramon, CA) – Bipartisan education leaders from throughout the community have endorsed Catharine Baker for re-election to the State Assembly.
“Catharine is a strong education leader. She has fought vigorously to hold our schools accountable and to provide sufficient funding to serve all students well,” said Anne White, Livermore Valley Joint Unified School District Board Member.
“Education is not a partisan issue. Catharine Baker has worked tirelessly for education and our schools. I support her because our students need her strong advocacy on their behalf in Sacramento,” said Suzy Pak, Lafayette School District Board Member.
“I am honored to have the support of our local education leaders,” said Baker. “As a parent of school-aged children, I know that we must put politics aside and advocate for real solutions to ensure every student and teacher has the tools they need to success.”
Baker also received the California School Boards Association Outstanding Legislator of the Year Award in 2017.
