CCSA Advocates is proud to endorse Steve Glazer for California Assembly District 16. Glazer has served his community for over 10 years. In 2004, he won a seat on the Orinda City Council, served twice as Mayor, and was re-elected in 2008 and 2012. Throughout his terms, Steve has focused on improving infrastructure, public services, and local schools -- while ensuring government fiscal accountability.
At the state level, Steve’s public policy efforts span three decades and include landmark achievements in the areas of conservation, public safety, affordable housing, and fiscal reform.
Currently serving as a California State University Trustee and member of the Central Contra Costa Solid Waste Authority Board, Glazer has expressed strong support for charter schools. “Charter schools are an important part of the solution. They provide a healthy alternative for California families who are looking for the best possible education for their children.”
Glazer continued, “The charter schools in our state deliver high-quality, community-based learning that meets tough state standards without excessive bureaucracy and regulations. The State Board of Education should not limit charter schools’ programmatic and fiscal flexibility. They have a strong track record of building student success.”
Gary Borden, Executive Director of CCSA Advocates praised Glazer. “It is with great enthusiasm and excitement that CCSA Advocates endorses Steve Glazer to represent Assembly District 16. Steve has proven himself to be a supporter of charter schools.” Continued Borden, “Steve clearly understands the challenges facing public education in California, and as Assemblymember will work to improve conditions for charter schools and for public education in general.”
Steve is married to Melba Muscarolas, an AT&T executive. They have two daughters. Steve earned a bachelor’s degree from San Diego State University where he served as Student Body President.
The 16th Assembly District encompasses the areas of Livermore, Pleasanton, Orinda, Moraga, Walnut Creek and Danville. The district is currently represented by Assemblymember Joan Buchanan.
