SAN LUIS OBISPO, CA – Today, Assemblyman Jordan Cunningham (R-San Luis Obispo) announced that he had received the endorsement of the California Teachers Association, California’s largest teachers’ union.
“Jordan has always placed a priority on our education system, and has a record of protecting students and teachers,” said Gayle Bilek, CTA Director and Paso Robles resident. “He is the independent fighter Central Coast families need in Sacramento, and our region’s teachers are proud to support his reelection campaign.”
Cunningham received the endorsement of the CTA in both 2018 and 2016.
In 2017, Cunningham – a former Templeton School Board Member – was able to work across the aisle to secure critical funding that saved and expanded on California’s Career Technical Education programs.
Earlier this year, Cunningham led a legislative coalition in opposition to Governor Newsom’s proposed education budget cuts. As a result of these efforts, California students and teachers avoided a multi-billion budget shortfall that would have been catastrophic to our education system.
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 served as a deputy district attorney in SLO County, and on the Templeton Unified School Board. He owns a small business with his wife Shauna, and enjoys coaching youth sports and raising their four kids.
