The Orange County Classroom Teachers Association has endorsed Nicolette Springer in her run for the Orange County Commission’s District 4 seat, her campaign announced Tuesday.
Springer, a criminologist, educator, and 13-year resident of District 4, is in a five-way contest in the Aug. 28 election with Susan Makowski, Kevin Ballinger, Maribel Gomez Cordero, and Gina Perez-Calhoun. They all seek to succeed Commissioner Jennifer Thompson.
“Teachers are the foundation of a community. Their trust in my candidacy and vision for Orange County is humbling,” Springer stated in a news release.
If no one gets more than 50 percent of the vote the top two advance to the Nov. 6 election.
District 4 covers southeast Orange County.
