Cynthia Thacker files to run for 65th Assembly District

Cynthia Thacker, Conservative Republican candidate filed to run for California State Assembly in the 65th district, celebrates California’s unique diversity by staunchly proclaiming she is against ACA 5, which is on the November ballot to overturn Proposition 209. In 1996, California voters approved Proposition 209 which prohibits universities, schools and government agencies from using race or sex in their admissions criteria, hiring and procurement decisions. If ACA 5 is approved by voters, it would remove provisions of Prop 209 from the California Constitution.

“Assemblywoman Sharon Quirk Silva and fellow Sacramento liberals gave ABA 5 the misleading name of California Act for Economic Prosperity,” said Thacker pointing out that everyone wants economic prosperity. “If Prop. 209 is overturned, hiring and college acceptance practices will primarily be based on race and gender rather than skills and aptitude. No matter how Quirk-Silva and other liberals window dress ACA 5, it is a form of reverse discrimination.”

Calling ACA 5 a hidden quota system, Thacker added that reports show Asians would be negatively affected in college admissions.

“Passage of ACA 5 would give companies another reason to flee California to less regulated states,” Thacker indicated. “When jobs relocate, so do working- and middle-class employees. Liberal Assemblywoman Quirk-Silva doesn’t understand the dynamics needed to educate students and make an economy grow. Like most liberals, her answer are quotas and preferences.”

  1. Thank you for pointing this out about ABA 5. It is such a bad law for Californians. Time to rid the California swamp!
