Joe Patterson Releases Strong Local Education Coalition in Campaign for State Assembly

Rocklin, CA – – Today, Joe Patterson announced a strong coalition of local education leaders in his campaign for State Assembly. Placer County was one of the first areas in the state to reopen in-person instruction after Gov. Gavin Newsom directed schools to close in March 2020. Joe took immediate action locally to help ensure kids returned to school as early as possible.

“The broad coalition of education leaders supporting Joe shows he has been a strong local advocate for our students. We support Joe so strongly because he has a clear history of taking action to support our community’s children and schools. As a father with children in local schools, Joe understands that the challenges our schools are facing include keeping them open to in-person learning,” said Rocklin School Board Member Tiffany Saathoff. “Joe was a leader in efforts to reshape the school board in a way that puts students over politics. That’s why we need him at the State Capitol.”

Patterson’s education coalition includes leaders from Roseville and Rocklin two of the largest cities in the newly drawn 5th Assembly District including:

Tiffany Saathoff, Rocklin School Board Member
Rachelle Price, Rocklin School Board Member
Julie Hupp, Rocklin School Board Member
Dereck Counter, Rocklin School Board Member
Julie Constant, Roseville City School District Board Member
Pete Constant, Roseville Joint Union High School District Board Member
Dave Patterson, Placer County Board of Education
Cari Dawson Bartley, Sierra College Board of Trustees

Roseville Joint Union High School District Board Member, Pete Constant, added, “I’m happy to be an early endorser of Joe, and I expect this coalition is going to grow in the coming days, weeks and months. The past 24 months have been hard for students and parents and we need someone who will take action against special interests at the Capitol. The individuals who understand education know there will be no better advocate for our students than Joe Patterson and that’s why education leaders like me are supporting Joe for State Assembly. I will be going door to door encouraging voters to vote for Joe because I know he did that for our community’s children when they needed him.”

The newly drawn 5th Assembly District’s population is split between Placer and El Dorado Counties. For more information about Joe and his campaign please visit
