SACRAMENTO — Citing his history of success as a farmer, businessman and elected representative, the California Farm Bureau Federation has endorsed Brian Dahle for state Senate.
Dahle, R-Bieber, seeks election in the 1st Senate District, which includes all or parts of Alpine, El Dorado, Lassen, Modoc, Nevada, Placer, Plumas, Sacramento, Shasta, Sierra and Siskiyou counties. A special primary election for the seat is scheduled March 26.
Since 2012, Dahle has represented the 1st Assembly District in the Legislature, and CFBF President Jamie Johansson said Dahle has compiled a record of effective advocacy on rural issues.
“Throughout his years in the Legislature, Brian Dahle has more than justified the confidence we had when Farm Bureau endorsed him in his first run for Assembly,” Johansson said. “He has been steadfast in his support for issues that matter most to rural California voters, including water supply and property rights.”
Johansson noted Dahle’s career as a third-generation farmer and owner of a seed business.
“Because he farms and operates a business himself, Brian understands directly how government actions can help or hurt the rural economy,” Johansson said. “With his agricultural, business and legislative experience, he is an ideal candidate to represent this important region of California.”
The California Farm Bureau Federation works to protect family farms and ranches on behalf of nearly 36,000 members statewide and as part of a nationwide network of nearly 5.6 million Farm Bureau members.
