Lance Christensen joined Fix California to spearhead the Education Savings Account Act (ESAA) of 2022.  The founder of Fix California is Ric Grenell who was in the Trump Administration as the Acting Director of National Intelligence and as Ambassador to Germany.  There are 3 focuses of Fix California, and one is the Education Savings Account Act. 

California spends around $22,000 per year for each child in public school.  Parents with zip codes in neighborhoods with failing schools may lack the opportunity to provide better educational options, due to finances.  Zip codes are a lottery on the educational future of a child.  ESAA would change that.  It is a bi-partisan approach.  Funds follow the student, so parents can decide which school best offers a learning experience for their children.  

Before joining Fix California, Lance was the Executive Vice President of the California Policy Center.  Prior to that he worked as a legislative consultant in the California State Senate. He served as Chief of Staff and Senior Policy Advisor to California State Senator John Moorlach.  Christensen served as Director of the Pension Reform Project for Reason Foundation.  His bachelor’s degree is from Brigham Young University, and he earned a Public Policy Master’s Degree from Pepperdine University.  

A minimum of 979,139 signatures on Education Savings Account Act Petitions between now and April 2022 are required in order to be on the November ballot. Your help is needed.  

The Education Savings Account Act would be a monumental change to the California Education System.  You will want to know how it will be enacted, and how it will affect children of California.   Lance Christensen has the answers.  Knowledge is power.  Plan to attend and bring a friend.

President's Message

Dear Ladies and Gentlemen:

As your new president, I want to welcome you to the new year, 2022. May it be a happy and healthy one for you and your loved ones. It is going to be a busy year but we will have fun while we make a difference.

In the coming year there is much at stake. As an off-year election, there will be many challenges to the integrity of the voting process. In that regard, we will want to work with others to help ensure that every legal vote is counted. In addition, Californians will be facing a number of legislative issues, issues that will impact us all. Our January speaker will address one of these significant matters.

But most importantly – as we go through the year, let’s remember to pray for our country. She certainly needs it.

Looking forward to seeing you in the new year.

Patricia Pyle
President
Rancho Mirage RWF
