NAME: Amy Hanacek
OCCUPATION: Small Business Owner
As a proud Capistrano Beach business owner and resident, I am keenly aware of the positive impact successful local schools have on property values and how they maintain the vitality of communities. My commitment to my neighbors in our coastal communities is to enhance the academic strength and quality of CUSD’s schools and to protect our investment in our homes and neighborhoods.
My two sons grew up in Capistrano Beach and graduated from San Clemente High School. I actively supported their education by serving in numerous leadership and fundraising positions at their schools and witnessed firsthand what our Founding Fathers knew: Public education is essential to our country’s common good.
As a small business owner, I understand the importance of maintaining sound budgeting and prudent fiscal policies, especially in times of economic uncertainty. Despite the severe fiscal challenges created by Sacramento, I will work to provide our children with the maximum educational opportunities available so that they may pursue their college and career goals. For example, my first objective is to promote outstanding education in Science, Technology, Arts, Engineering and Math to prepare our students to be the next generation of innovators and responsible citizens.
