Dr. Ken Williams Signs Pledge to Never Raise Taxes

Irvine, CA (April 9, 2012) – Orange County Board of Education Trustee Ken Williams has signed a pledge, promising never to raise taxes on his constituents. Dr. Williams has also consistently voted to never raise taxes during his tenure on the Orange County Board of Education

“I have always felt that the government has been overtaxing the people,” Williams said. “I have fought to make sure that the County Board of Education doesn’t place tax burdens on our constituents.  I will continue to be the only taxpayer advocate running for this office.”

As a member of the Orange County Board of Education, Williams has served his constituents as their consistent conservative voice on the board, promoting traditional family values, public safety and safe schools, high academic standards, educational accountability, parental rights, and a “back to basics” approach to education.

During his first campaign for office in 1996, Williams defeated a twenty-year incumbent by running on a “back-to-basics education” theme that resonated with the voters of Trustee Area 3.  A home-grown community leader, he is a native of Orange County who graduated from the county’s public schools.  He is a family physician in private medical practice since 1986, and   is on the medical staff at St. Joseph Hospital, Hoag Hospital, and family practice department chairman at Children’s Hospital of Orange County.

Trustee Area 3 consists of the cities of Brea, Irvine, Orange, Villa Park, and Yorba Linda; the communities of Anaheim Hills and North Tustin; and portions of East Anaheim, Lake Forest, Tustin, and Orange County’s canyon communities.
