ORANGE COUNTY, CA – Mayor Linda Lindholm, the leading candidate for the Orange County Board of Education’s Trustee Area 5 seat, has gained support for her campaign from South Orange County’s most respected women leaders. Orange County Supervisor Patricia C. Bates, Senator Mimi Walters, and Assemblywoman Diane Harkey have all officially endorsed Mayor Lindholm to represent South Orange County on the Orange County Board of Education.

“When I was in the Assembly, I carried bipartisan legislation to expand the number of entities that could authorize charter schools, and I know Linda Lindholm will help advance the ability of parents to start charter schools,” Orange County Supervisor Patricia C. Bates said. “We need Linda Lindholm and her pro-charter school leadership on the Orange County Board of Education.”

“As a State Senator, I’ve worked extensively on key education issues, and have successfully passed important digital textbook legislation into law. Linda Lindholm is an innovator who will use her experience to bring our children’s education into the twenty-first century, and that’s why I proudly endorse her,” said Mimi Walters. “Linda Lindholm is the best choice to represent South County’s children and families on the Orange County Board of Education.”

“With her experience teaching college students as a university instructor and leading a city as mayor, Linda Lindholm brings a unique background and set of skills that we need on the Orange County Board of Education,” Assemblywoman Diane Harkey said. “I am proud to endorse Linda Lindholm because we need her expertise leading the Orange County Board of Education.”

“As mayor, I have had the opportunity to work with Pat Bates, Mimi Walters, and Diane Harkey in improving public policy for South Orange County residents, and I am honored to have their support for Orange County Board of Education,” Lindholm said. “I am truly humbled by their support for my campaign to improve our education system.”

A businesswoman, Mayor Lindholm has served as the President of the Saddleback College Foundation Board, as President of the Beta Foster Care Advisory Board, and as the City Liaison on the Laguna Niguel Youth Committee. She has also served on the Capistrano Unified School District Instructional Materials Review Committee and the Prevent Child Abuse – Orange County Advisory Board.

Professionally, Lindholm has taught college students as a university instructor and worked with school districts on developing programs for teachers of children with physical and learning disabilities. She earned her Bachelor of Science Degree from Colorado State University and her Master’s Degree in Public Administration from the University of Kansas.   Lindholm and her husband, Wayne, have three children.

    Shorter versions of these endorsements:

    Bates: “When I was in the Assembly, I did X, and I’m sure that because of that Mrs. Lincoln Club President would favor it.”

    Walters: “As State Senator, I’ve done Y, and that’s why you should support Mrs. Lincoln Club President, who hasn’t, rather than her opponent with three decades worth of experience in the job.”

    Harkey: “Mrs. Lincoln Club President’s unique qualifications for County School Board are beyond description, which is why I have not really bothered to try to describe them. Zzzzzz.”

    Tell me, either Chris: Does Linda Lindholm think that textbooks should teach about evolution, or may or may not teach about evolution, or is she going full-bore and saying that they should NOT teach about evolution? I’m not going to be convinced by these boilerplate endorsements that the departing Mayor has immoderate talents, but maybe I could be convinced that she doesn’t have an immoderate agenda.
