About Lance Christensen:
Lance Christensen brings nearly two decades of public policy and political experience to the role of chief strategist for Fix California in preparing to put the most substantial education reform measure in state history on the November 2022 ballot. Christensen is on a leave of absence from the California Policy Center where he was executive vice president and directed operations with two of their central projects, ParentUnion.org and California Local Elected Officials. Before stepping into the nonprofit world, he worked as a legislative consultant in the California State Senate, as well as a finance budget analyst at the Department of Finance. More recently, Christensen served as chief of staff and senior policy advisor to California State Sen. John Moorlach. While he dealt with every major policy issue confronting the legislature, much of his work there centered on addressing the state’s most difficult challenges: unsustainable government budgets, failing infrastructure, an inadequate education system, broken retirement promises and disastrous mental health laws.
Outside of government, Christensen served as director of the Pension Reform Project for Reason Foundation, setting the stage for major reforms in state and local retirement funding across the country. His work on state and municipal fiscal policy has been published in national and local publications.
Christensen earned his bachelor’s degree in English from Brigham Young University and a master’s of Public Policy from Pepperdine University’s School of Public Policy. Based in Wheatland (north of Sacramento), Christensen is fully engaged in his community, sitting on various boards and serving in any number of callings at church. He is a happily married father of 5 children, all of whom are seventh-generation Californians.
