Former Laguna Niguel Mayor Paul Glaab Withdraws from 73rd Assembly Race Endorses Anna Bryson

Posted By CotoBlogzz

Rancho Santa Margarita, CA - Former Laguna Niguel Mayor Paul Glaab Withdraws from 73rd Assembly Race due to health issues.  In a press release, Glaab explains that “ I recently had a serious fall that caused a head injury, and will require an extended recovery that has been making it difficult to run a campaign.  At this time I cannot continue to put the effort in to the race that will make my campaign successful.  Therefore, I have decided to suspend my campaign.”

Glaab was elected to the Laguna Niguel City Council in 2004, serving as the city’s Mayor in 2008 and in 2012.  In December of 2006, Paul joined the Orange County Transportation Authority Board of Directors where he represented South Orange County’s Fifth District and was a member of the Regional Planning and Highways Committee.   He served as Chairman of the Board in 2012.
As to his endorsement of Anna Bryson, the press release states:  “After deciding to withdraw, it was clear who to support—Anna Bryson. Anna has done so much for this community as an education reformer and leader. She will make a great Assemblymember. I would like to thank so many people who have worked and supported me during this campaign. I strongly encourage them to support Anna Bryson and keep this seat in GOP hands in November.”
This latest Bryson endorsement comes on the heels of the one by the  Conservative Republicans of California. According to its president Mike Spence:  “Anna has been an advocate for smaller government and conservative ideals for many years in Orange County. As a school board member and small business owner we feel that she represents the membership base of our organization.”

Bryson is a small-business owner and education reformer. While she has been serving as a trustee for the Capistrano Unified School District, it has become the top-performing large district in the state. As a trustee, she has prevailed in starting and maintaining five charter schools. Additionally,. Bryson volunteers in the county D.A.’s anti-gang program.
