MISSION VIEJO, CA - The California Federation of Teachers became the most recent major organization representing working families to endorse Democrat Scott Rhinehart for California’s 73rd Assembly District.
The California Federation of Teachers (CFT) represents over 120,000 workers at every level of the state’s educational system, from Pre-K Head Start to UC’s and Community Colleges.
The CFT identified Rhinehart’s commitment to strengthening California’s schools and supporting teachers and students as a key reason for their support.
“I am honored to receive this endorsement,” Rhinehart said. “California is the 5th largest economy in the world and yet we are the 41st state in per-pupil spending. In the Assembly, I will work to ensure that our schools have the resources needed to teach our children and young people.”
The California Federation of Teachers is the latest addition to Rhinehart’s endorsement list which already includes Congressman Mike Levin, California Assemblymember Sharon Quirk-Silva, Board of Education member Beckie Gomez, UNITE HERE, Local 11, and the United Electrical, Radio and Machine Workers, Western Region Council among many others.
