NAME: Steve Lang
OCCUPATION: CEO/Business Owner
We need reform and new priorities at CUSD.
I will ensure precious tax dollars are directed to students and educational programs for students. I will work to restore classroom days that have been cut from the school year and programs that have been eliminated.
I appreciate our teachers’ position, as they have responsibility for our children’s education. However, “it’s only a good deal if it’s good for everybody.”
My highest priorities will be directing resources back into the classroom. As your advocate, I will support policies that promote and enhance:
Strong public education;
Maximum academic achievement;
Safe, sanitary schools for every student;
Adequate classroom supplies
Financial responsibility and lower taxes.
I have owned and operated a successful Orange County business since 1974. I’m a proven, effective, results-oriented leader.
As the CEO of a successful business – I will bring a strong work ethic, extensive business experience and common sense to CUSD.
My wife and I have three children and 10 grandchildren, all living in San Clemente.
As your trustee, I will carry out my duties and responsibilities with as much care for your family as I would my own.
Thank you very much in advance for your faith, trust and vote.
