WENDY GABRIELLA ATTORNEY/PROFESSOR ANNOUNCES CANDIDACY FOR ASSEMBLY DISTRICT 73
LAGUNA NIGUEL- Constitutional attorney and Professor Wendy Gabriella announced today that she is a candidate for the State Assembly to represent the 73rd long-time resident of the District and a career educator, Professor Gabriella runs as a fiscal conservative dedicated to ensuring that our present and future generations have access to quality public education in order to meet the economic opportunities of the future. Professor Gabriella’s campaign focuses on increasing per pupil funding while holding the line against spiraling tuition, ever escalating textbook prices, and crippling student loan debt.
“I intend to promote quality education in order to meet the economic opportunities of the future,” said Professor Gabriella in her campaign kickoff conference. “I am the only candidate in this race with 30 years experience in the classroom, and the ability to work cooperatively with Democrats in Sacramento to achieve real educational reform.”
“I am also a strong advocate of transparency in government, elimination of partisan politics, and holding Sacramento accountable”, added Professor Gabriella. “As a public interest attorney, I have successfully litigated numerous cases involving the California Open Meeting Act which requires elected officials to do the public’s business in public as well as First Amendment (Freedom of Speech) cases. I won the first Open Meeting Act case in California where the judge took the unprecedented step of ordering tape recordings of closed sessions to protect the public from secret backroom deals. It’s time to hold Sacramento accountable and eliminate the partisan politics which causes gridlock.”
The only Democrat in the race, Professor Gabriella offers the voters a stark choice between the typical politicians, and a consensus building candidate with the proven ability to work across partisan lines for the good of the district. “California is in transition,” Professor Gabriella noted.
“We need new leaders who can responsibly and compassionately guide that transition. We face many opportunities and Sacramento needs courageous leaders who are willing to plan for the future, a future that includes fiscal accountability, spending caps, and economic development.
Please join me in looking forward, investing in, and working toward the future of California.” Assembly District. As a Assembly District 73 includes Aliso Viejo, Coto De Caza, Dana Point, Laguna Niguel, Mission Viejo, Rancho Santa Margarita, San Clemente, and San Juan Capistrano.
