Rancho Cucamonga, CA — Assemblyman Marc Steinorth has made the improvement of education one of his priorities in the state Legislature, so it’s no surprise that leading educators in his district have pledged their support for his re-election.
His endorsers include Redlands Unified School District Board President Patty Holohan, Alta Loma School District Board President Caryn Payzant, Central School District Board President Joan R. Weiss, Chaffey Joint Union School District Board President Arthur Bustamonte, Etiwanda School District Board President Cathline Fort and San Bernardino City Unified School District Board President Dr. Margaret Hill.
“I’ve known Marc since he was my student back in middle school in San Bernardino,” said Dr. Margaret Hill. “He is a caring and committed leader and a strong advocate for education. As our Assemblyman, Marc is working to improve our neighborhood schools, invest in classroom technology, improve our libraries and update computer and science labs.”
Steinorth said he is gratified to have so many education leaders support his candidacy for another term representing the 40th Assembly District, which includes the communities of Rancho Cucamonga, San Bernardino, Highland, Loma Linda and Redlands, and the unincorporated areas of Mentone, Devore, Lytle Creek and portions of Phelan.
“As the father of two school age children, I see the importance of education on a daily basis,” he said. “Not only is a good education the key to their success in the workforce, but also the key to California’s economic success in the future.”
“We must ensure that our tax dollars stay in the classroom. We need to encourage workforce development by partnering with local businesses and increasing our focus on career and technical education. The time to make California’s education system the envy of the nation is now.”
