"As a school board member and parent, I am proud to support Steve for State Senate. Steve will work to repeal the recently passed district reserve cap so districts can continue to budget responsibly. Steve also understands that the Local Control Funding Formula does not provide an adequate base for all districts and he will push for both adequacy and equity. As an Independent, I am particularly impressed by Steve's willingness to work across party lines. We definitely need a more collaborative culture in Sacramento."
