Sharon Quirk-Silva for Assembly

A Local Servant

DSC_3944a.jpgAs a former Councilwoman and Mayor, Sharon earned a reputation for solving problems and working collaboratively as a part of a team. That’s what teachers do with their students, and that’s how she approaches public service.  Sharon knows it doesn’t take a Democrat or a Republican to pave a street, fix a pothole or rebuild an aging bridge.  It takes people working together, regardless of party, to find common ground when solving the state’s challenges.

Her history of local service guides her philosophy on how state government should operate.  Sharon believes strongly in transparency, innovation and collaboration.  An advocate for reaching out to citizens, Sharon created the popular “Walk and Talk” program in Fullerton, in which she led citizens on walks through specific areas of the community and discussed issues of concern. Solutions are found at home in our neighborhoods- not with special interests that have overrun our State Legislature in Sacramento.

Sharon’s priorities are simple: 

  • Use constituent feedback to prioritize the issues important to our community.

  • Focus on finding and adopting solutions, not scoring political points.

  • Work across party lines to move our state forward.  

  • Demand Orange County be treated fairly by state government.
