SAN LUIS OBISPO, CA – Jordan Cunningham has received the endorsement of James Brescia, Superintendent of Public Education for San Luis Obispo County.
“Jordan has shown his commitment to improving educational opportunities for our children,” stated Brescia. “From his prior service as a school trustee, to his advocacy for Career Technical Education in the legislature, he has shown true leadership.”
Cunningham was first elected to the Assembly in 2016. Since then, he has focused on combating human trafficking and improving public education. He carried key legislation to save dedicated career technical education (CTE) funding in California, and led the fight to preserve such funding in the state budget. Informed by his experience in the business world and serving as a school trustee, he believes in the critical importance of workforce-ready education.
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. Cunningham also served as a trustee on the Templeton Unified School District board from 2014-2016. He now represents individuals, families, and local businesses as the owner and founder of Cunningham Law Group.
Assemblyman Cunningham represents all of San Luis Obispo County and a portion of Santa Barbara County, including the cities of Arroyo Grande, Atascadero, Paso Robles, Grover Beach, Lompoc, Morro Bay, Pismo Beach, Templeton, San Luis Obispo, Santa Maria, and surrounding communities.
Cunningham lives in San Luis Obispo County with his wife, Shauna, and their four children.
