1. Why do you enjoy representing school districts? 

I come from a family of educators and administrators.  Public education has always been an important aspect of my life and my family's values. I enjoy representing school districts because it gives me an opportunity to give back to our community in a unique and important way.

2. Where did you get your education? 

I started my education at Compton Unified School District and thereafter attended University of California, Los Angeles for my undergraduate degree, and the University of Southern California for my law degree.

“Nothing like it in the World” by Stephen E. Ambrose.  The book discusses the building of the transcontinental railroad which was planned under President Lincoln who was a former railroad attorney himself.

After Hewes made his money as a merchant in Alameda County, he and his wife moved to Tustin California for our beautiful Southern California climate.  The Hewes family settled in Old Town Tustin, where their original Victorian style home still stands today. Hewes Middle School in the Tustin Unified School District is named after David Hewes.
