Candidate Bill Quirk (Democrat)
For California State Assembly District 20
I am honored to be the only candidate for the 20th Assembly District endorsed by the California Democratic Party and a broad coalition of organizations including state and local firefighters, nurses, teachers, police officers, environmentalists and working families.
In addition, over 250 local elected and community leaders are supporting my candidacy, including State Senator Ellen Corbett, Mayor Mike Sweeney and State Assemblymember Bob Wieckowski. These endorsements are the result of my 30 years of volunteer service in this community and my eight years of accomplishments on the Hayward City Council.
My focus is on the three things most vital for our community: improving schools, creating jobs, and ensuring safe, clean neighborhoods. On the Council, I've fought to increase school funding, balance our city budget while keeping police on the streets and fire stations open, and stimulate job creation by promoting small business and reducing and streamlining regulations.
In the Assembly, I will protect education and other critical services by fighting for funding, promote jobs by reducing and streamlining regulations on businesses and support police and fire services by stopping state raids on funds for local government. I will also work hard to balance the state budget and spend taxpayer dollars wisely.
As a scientist, I worked at Lawrence Livermore National Lab and NASA and taught physics at Cal Tech, Columbia, and UC Davis. I was a PTA president when my children attended local public school and I remain active in many community organizations including Rotary, Friends of the Library, Sierra Club and Neighborhood Watch.
Please join local community leaders, the California Democratic Party, nurses, firefighters, police officers and environmentalists in supporting me for State Assembly.
