This just came across the wire from the Ken Williams for Orange County Board of Education, Trustee Area 3 campaign (Full disclosure: Custom Campaigns is the consultant on this race):

Dr. Ken Williams Opposes Munger/PTA Tax Hike

Orange County, CA (April 30, 2012) – Orange County Board of Education Member Dr. Ken Williams has announced his opposition to the Molly Munger/PTA initiative that would impose $10,000,000,000 in taxes on Californians.

The initiative, which has qualified for the November ballot, would not only increase income taxes on all California couples making $17,500 a year or more but would also increase the collection of private parental and student information from all families in California.

“Collecting private family information and raising taxes on Californians is not the solution. It is wrong to overspend the people’s money on wasteful bureaucracy and collect private and personal information on families,” Williams said. “It is time for Sacramento Democrats, politicians, and Governor Brown to limit the scope and size of government and start making fiscally responsible decisions and finding ways to balance the budget without raising taxes.”

As a member of the Orange County Board of Education, Williams has led the Orange County Department of Education as the proven fiscal conservative on the board. His voting record as a governing county board member reflects his pledge of “No New Taxes” and the financially strong fiscal viability of the county department of education.

Williams serves 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 an Orange County native 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.
