FULLERTON, CA—Classroom teacher and 65th Assembly District candidate Sharon Quirk-Silva today announced receiving the endorsement of the California League of Conservation Voters (CLCV) for her campaign.

We look forward to working with her on our shared priorities.”
CLCV states its “mission is to protect and enhance the environment and the health of all California communities by electing environmental champions, advancing critical priorities, and holding policymakers accountable.”
