    I’m endorsing Cliff because he has extensive experience in the private and public sector. Cliff is a strong supporter of Torrance schools, he has an excellent educational background including two masters and a law degree and, perhaps most importantly, he has the common sense we need to guide Torrance into the future. He is thoughtful, intelligent, and listens to community concerns. In these times we need someone with Cliff’s experience to guide the City.
