OC District Attorney Tony Rackauckas Endorses Dr. Ken Williams for Re-Election to OC Board of Education
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Orange County, CA (May 10, 2016) – Orange County District Attorney Tony Rackauckas has endorsed Dr. Ken Williams for re-election to the Orange County Board of Education Trustee Area 3 seat in the June 7th primary.
"The Orange County Department of Education, under the leadership of Dr. Williams, has a great relationship with the District Attorney's office to ensure our high-risk youth receive the best education during the adjudication process," said District Attorney Rackauckas. "Dr. Williams, as a sworn law enforcement officer and county school board member, has positively impacted our county and communities. He deserves to be reelected."
"Having the endorsement of the District Attorney is a great honor," Williams said. "It has always been my desire to advocate for a safe and secure learning environment for all students in Orange County schools during my time on the Orange County Board of Education."
As a result of the county's effort and enforcement of the laws protecting our communities and families, gang related crime is down over the last several years.
As an Orange County sworn law enforcement officer and member of the Orange County Board of Education, Ken has strongly supported the Orange County District Attorney's office, Probation Department, and court system. Williams has served his constituents as their consistent conservative voice on the board, promoting traditional family values, public safety and safe schools, high academic standards, educational accountability, parental rights, and a "back-to-basics" approach to education.
During his first campaign for office, Williams defeated a twenty-year incumbent by running on a "back-to-basics education" theme that resonated with the voters of Trustee Area 3. A home-grown community leader, he is a native of Orange County who graduated from the county's public schools. He is a family physician in private medical practice since 1986, and is on the medical staff at St. Joseph Hospital, Hoag Hospital, and family practice department chairman at Children's Hospital of Orange County.
Trustee Area 3 consists of the cities of Brea, Irvine, Orange, Villa Park, and Yorba Linda; the communities of Anaheim Hills, El Modena, North Tustin, and Orange Park Acres; and portions of Lake Forest, Tustin, and Orange County's canyon communities.
