Sacramento, Calif. — Candidate for Natomas Unified School Board Jag Bains today announced the endorsement of Assemblymember Ash Kalra, who sits on the Assembly Committee on Education.

“I’m proud to have the endorsement of a thoughtful, respected state-level politician who is very familiar with education policy,” said Bains. “His support means a lot.”

Kalra was elected in 2016 to represent the 27th Assembly District, which encompasses downtown San Jose, East San Jose, Evergreen and parts of South San Jose. He is the first Indian American elected to the State Legislature.

“From talking with Jag, you can tell he’s in tune with the needs of the community and will be an excellent Board Member,” said Kalra.
