Marcia Lee Nordstrom for San Diego Unified School Board District C
Successful businesswoman, involved community leader and active mother.
Marcia Lee Nordstrom is a Korean-American businesswoman and has been a community leader for over 15 years.
I will work to make our schools better for ALL our children, preparing them to meet the many pathways of life.
As a parent of two school-aged children, I will work with communities, parents, law enforcement, to make our schools safe and address bullying, unsafe social media, and violence on campus.
Education Options – One Size Does Not Fit All
I will push for quality education for ALL children, regardless of their path, whether it’s college, vocational programs, or real-life trades for those who want to be workforce ready.
I will demand accountability and restore trust with transparent financial management of district funds ensuring that money is prioritized for children and education and provides for quality teachers who are the stewards of our children's education.
EXPERIENCE + COMMITMENT TO ALL STUDENTS
I graduated from USC and during 20 years’ experience as a businesswoman, I have proudly served on the Pacific Beach Planning Group, PB Business Improvement District and past president of the PB Town Council collaborating with communities, groups, and law enforcement to address community issues.
Marcia is very active in her community, serving her second term on the Pacific Beach Planning Group, and previously served as President of the Pacific Beach Town Council. She also helped found the Pacific Beach Business Improvement District, serving on the board of directors and sub-committees from 2002-2014. While working in her family’s business, she worked closely with the Hospitality Taskforce to address alcohol-related problems in the community. She has been involved with homelessness, housing, short-term rentals, safety, and quality of life issues which have been ongoing problems in her neighborhood for many years.
Marcia has been a licensed real estate professional for over 15 years and is a managing partner with Engel & Voelkers, specializing in residential and commercial properties. For nearly 20 years, her family owned a prominent Pacific Beach restaurant, P.B. Bar & Grill, and handled operations, marketing and community relations. In that role, she saw firsthand the challenges facing small businesses from changing economic conditions, government regulations and taxes. Over the years, she reached out to the community and worked with law enforcement, local leaders, and elected officials to address real problems in her neighborhood. As a Supervisor, she will reach out to communities, focus on health and public safety, help small businesses expand and work toward creating better-paying jobs for San Diegans.
Marcia has a business degree from the University of Southern California and lives in Pacific Beach with her husband and two children.

Marcia Nordstrom believes, enough is enough with the taxes and rubber stamping the current San Diego Unified school board does for its donors and unions. From the article...
"In 2008, local voters approved $2.1 billion in bonds for the San Diego Unified School District. In 2012, district voters approved an additional $2.8 billion in bonds. Now, with Proposition YY, the school board is seeking $3.5 billion more in bonds, to be paid off over 39 years with a property tax hike equal to $300 a year for a lot with a $500,000 valuation."

At a recent San Diego Unified event, school board incumbent Michael McQuary shook hands with community members and greeted school police officers who had recently taken him on a ride-along. You got the sense this retired school teacher was in his element. Indeed, his calendar is filled with district ribbon-cutting ceremonies and assemblies. Continue reading here.
