Four Conservative County Supervisors Endorse Dr. Ken Williams for Re-Election to OC Board of Education
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Orange County, CA (May 17, 2016) – Four conservative Orange County Supervisors have endorsed Dr. Ken Williams for re-election to the Orange County Board of Education Trustee Area 3 seat in the June 7th primary.
The highly-valued and prestigious endorsements of Orange County's top county elected leaders include Vice Chair Michelle Park Steel and Supervisors Andrew Do, Shawn Nelson, and Todd Spitzer. Nelson and Spitzer are also the two immediate past Chairmen of the Board of Supervisors.
The news also comes after Williams also recently announced his endorsements from Orange County Sheriff Sandra Hutchens and Orange County District Attorney Tony Rackauckas.
"Dr. Williams has been a stalwart for conservative education and pro-family values in this county since his election," said Vice Chair Michelle Park Steel. "We need more men like him who promote 'back-to-basics' educational opportunities for our children."
"Having the endorsement of one County Supervisor would be a great honor, but to be honored by four conservative Supervisors endorsing me is incredible," Williams said. "I have always worked hard to have a positive relationship between the County Board of Education and the County Board of Supervisors."
"Ken is a proven educational leader because of his demonstrated efforts to strengthen campus and student safety, drug free and anti-bullying programs, and improving tests scores with a back-to-basics theme," added Immediate Past Chairman Todd Spitzer, whose supervisorial district includes most of Board of Education Trustee Area 3.
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.
