Irvine, California – John Shanahan, the entrepreneur who created Hooked on Phonics ® and was the first syndicator of The Dr. Laura Schlessinger Show, has announced his support of Don Wagner for the 70th Assembly District.
"Don's leadership as president of the South Orange County Community College Board of Trustees has been instrumental in providing educational opportunities to Orange County young people," said Shanahan. "He has worked hard to balance the budget while expanding enrollment and been a champion for conservative values."
"John is an American success story and I am grateful for his support," said Wagner. "He has worked hard to succeed in a state that makes it difficult to do so. I look forward to working in Sacramento to change that and to help future John Shanahan's succeed."
Don Wagner and his wife, Megan, and their three children live in Irvine. He is a graduate of UCLA and the University of California, Hastings College of Law. Don has been elected to three consecutive terms on the Board of Trustees of the South Orange County Community College District, and currently serves as the Board's president. Don was a founder of the Orange County chapter of the Federalist Society, a nationwide organization of 40,000 conservative lawyers, law students, and scholars dedicated to preserving the rule of law from activist courts.
