Tustin School Unified School Board Unanimously Endorses Wagner
Wednesday, May 19, 2010
"Don Wagner has demonstrated his abilities as chairman of the South Orange County Community College Board of Trustees," said Tustin Unified Board President Francine Scinto. "Don has delivered top-notch services to students and taxpayers while balancing the budget and not raising fees. He knows how to make tough decisions and produce results."
"Tustin Unified enjoys a superb working relationship with SOCC. On Don's watch we've jointly developed Early College, an innovative program allowing high school students to attend college and high school on their own high school campuses, graduating in four years with a high school and AA degree simultaneously. It's a terrific opportunity for Tustin students and a great cost savings for families," continued Scinto.
Scinto joins fellow board members Jonathan Abelove, Tammy Bullard, Lynn Davis, and James Laird in endorsing Wagner.
"I appreciate the vote of confidence but also the leadership of the Tustin Unified Boardsaid Wagner. "They recognize the importance of providing a quality education to our young people but also to be responsible and efficient with taxpayers' money. I will take the same approach that I've taken at the community colleges to Sacramento and make the tough decisions necessary to get our state back on track."
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.
