Republican Party of Orange County Endorses Mayor Linda Lindholm Over Incumbent Republican
March 28, 2014
ORANGE COUNTY, CA – The Republican Party of Orange County has endorsed Laguna Niguel Mayor Linda Lindholm for Orange County Board of Education, Trustee Area 5. The party's Central Committee voted unanimously to endorse Lindholm over the objections of the 32-year incumbent, who is a Republican. Mayor Lindholm, the leading candidate for the Orange County Board of Education's Trustee Area 5 seat, is quickly setting herself apart as a consensus builder amongst education officials, organizations, taxpayers, parents, and teachers.
"The Republican Party of Orange County endorses Linda Lindholm as the best choice to represent taxpayers on the Board of Education," said Republican Party of Orange County Chairman Scott Baugh. "Linda Lindholm has a proven record of advancing fiscal responsibility and personal freedoms by supporting low taxes, balanced budgets, battling overregulation, and preventing wasteful bureaucracy."
"I am grateful that the Republican Party of Orange County has endorsed my campaign to help improve the education of our children," Lindholm said. "My promise to promote transparency, fiscal accountability, and a better education for all students has been a message that has resonated with people from all ends of the political spectrum."
A businesswoman, Mayor Lindholm has served as the President of the Saddleback College Foundation Board, as President of the Beta Foster Care Advisory Board, and as the City Liaison on the Laguna Niguel Youth Committee. She has also served on the Capistrano Unified School District Instructional Materials Review Committee and the Prevent Child Abuse – Orange County Advisory Board.
Professionally, Lindholm has taught college students as a university instructor and worked with school districts on developing programs for teachers of children with physical and learning disabilities. She earned her Bachelor of Science Degree from Colorado State University and her Master's Degree in Public Administration from the University of Kansas. Lindholm and her husband, Wayne, have three children.
