SAN LUIS OBISPO, CA – Today, Assemblyman Jordan Cunningham announced that he has received the endorsement of the California Teachers Association (CTA).
“As a former Templeton School Board Member, I understand the importance of providing our teachers with the tools they need to succeed,” said Cunningham. “Education is a top state priority and is foundational to our economy. I am proud that my efforts to support and improve public education have been recognized by our teachers.”
Cunningham was first elected to the Assembly in 2016. Since then, he has focused on combating human trafficking and fighting to grow Career Technical Education (CTE). He successfully fought for permanent funding for CTE programs in the 2018-19 state budget.
