"I wrote the nation's first parent trigger law in California." — Sen. (Ret) Gloria J. Romero
Ms. Romero really means is the American Legislative Exchange Council (ALEC) wrote the charter trigger law and she put her name on it.
This is no different than the myriad bills the California Charter Schools Association (CCSA) provided her with to do the same. Where the mendacious Romero talks about parents and children she really means charter executives and their deep pocketed lobbyists. For example Romero's SB 592 which handed public school property paid for by taxpayers over to private corporations.
Romero's biography always forgets to mention her honorary membership in the John Birch Society, as evidenced by her deep connections to the Koret Foundation and Hoover Institution.
