The following candidates signed the pledge:
- Robert “Bob” Ausmus, Orange Unified School District

- Bob Gardner, Anaheim City School District
- Jose Alfredo Hernandez, Santa Ana Unified School District (Incumbent)
- Mike Moodian, South Orange County Community College District

Copies of their signed pledges are available here.
Tony Tapia, candidate for Rancho Santiago Community College District’s Board of Trustees, pledged to refuse health and medical benefits via email. He said he could not send a signed copy because he had issues with his printer.
James Vanderbilt, candidate for Anaheim City School District board (and incumbent), also pledged to refuse health and medical benefits via email. He cannot send a signed copy because he is currently serving in Kuwait as a captain in the U.S. Army.
Please Dr. Moodian with any questions at firstname.lastname@example.org.
