SAN LUIS OBISPO, CA – Today, Assemblyman Jordan Cunningham announced receiving the endorsement of Templeton Unified School District Trustee Katrina Merson, Former President Shirley Sigmund and Former Trustees Phil Keohen and Kevin Hamers.
“Jordan’s record on the issues that most impact our kids illustrates his passion for improving our state’s K-12 education system,” said former Templeton United Board President Shirley Sigmund. “As a former Templeton School Board member, Jordan understands how critical things like Career Technical Education are to providing a well-rounded educational experience.”
Cunningham, a former member of the Templeton Unified School Board, 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). Last year, Cunningham worked across the aisle to secure permanent funding in the state budget for CTE.
After graduating from Atascadero High School, Cunningham graduated from Point Loma Nazarene University with a degree in physics. He then obtained his law degree from the University of California, Berkeley.
Prior to serving in the Assembly, Cunningham worked as an attorney in private practice, as a federal law clerk, and an attorney for the U.S. Department of Justice. He later returned home to become a Deputy District Attorney in the San Luis Obispo County District Attorney’s Office. He now represents individuals, families, and local businesses as the owner and founder of Cunningham Law Group.
