It is a campaign promise fulfilled.
When Kish Rajan pulled out of a race for re-election to the Walnut Creek City Council last fall, he vowed to contribute unexpended campaign funds to Walnut Creek's education foundations.
On Thursday night he dropped by the Walnut Creek Education Foundation meeting to deliver a $3,500 check. Earlier, he signed over a $3,500 check to the PEAK Education Foundation.
"I am very proud to be making these sizable donations to support Walnut Creek's schools," stated Rajan in a news release. “As a Walnut Creek native, resident and parent, I cannot think of a more important investment than in our kids.”
In a note on the PEAK Facebook page, Rajan said,"We all owe thanks to the generous donors to my campaign who agreed to allow the funds to be shared with our local schools."
Last fall, Rajan gave up his local campaign to accept a job offer from Gov. Jerry Brown as the director of the Governor's Office of Business and Economic Development (GO-Biz) in Sacramento.
