A Product of Orange County
Sharon Quirk-Silva is a mother, teacher, former Mayor of Fullerton and Member of the California State Assembly.
Sharon has deep ties to Orange County. Sharon came to Fullerton when she was two, was educated in Orange County public schools, and earned her degrees from Fullerton College, UCLA, and CSU Fullerton.
She found a passion for education, serving as a classroom teacher for more than thirty years. Education is a family affair. Her husband Jesus Silva teaches math at Nicolas Junior High School and her four children all attended local public schools.
A Local Servant
Sharon has earned a reputation for solving problems, working collaboratively, and listening to others. 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 solve our problems. It takes people working together.
Her history of local service guides her philosophy on how state government should operate. 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.
- Focus on finding solutions, not scoring political points.
- Demand Orange County be treated fairly by Sacramento.
