I want to thank the Women Democrats of Sacramento County for their vote to endorse Tom Torlakson for State Superintendent of Public Instruction earlier this evening.
Tom had a conflict tonight, a forum at UC-Davis with a couple of the other candidates for SPI, so I was happy to step in and represent him at the Women Democrats of Sacramento County forum.
After Senator Romero spoke and answered questions about her campaign, I made my presentation about Tom's education agenda and why he will fight for every student and to ensure every neighborhood school can provide a top-quality education in a safe environment. I also mentioned the support he's received from groups like the California Federation of Teachers and leaders like former State Superintendent of Public Instruction Delaine Eastin.
After our presentations, I stayed at the meeting to listen to the presentations by candidates in other races the Women Democrats of Sacramento County were considering tonight.
I really enjoyed my visit and the opportunity to discuss Tom's campaign for SPI with the Women Democrats of Sacramento County. After he completed the forum at UC-Davis, Tom was able to tell me how much he appreciated the support, and having this group join his education team.
