"Dr. Michael Daniels has the right background to serve District 3 capably. He’s well-grounded on the real challenges facing Orange County’s public schools and offers a low-key, approachable demeanor that will allow him to advocate for students and teachers alike.

 

He’d be the better choice in many matchups. Against the other remaining candidate in District 3, he’s a slam dunk!"
