Brian Dahle took the oath of office Monday for his second term in the California Assembly, vowing to work for his constituents to protect rural health care systems, promote balanced use of our natural resources, and fight job-killing taxes and regulations.

“I am humbled by the support of the voters in the 1st Assembly District,” said Dahle, who won more votes in the November 4th election than any other candidate in the California Assembly’s 80 districts. “It’s an honor to represent the people of rural Northern California, and I’ll work every day to fight for their needs and give them a strong voice in Sacramento.”

According to a media release from the Assemblyman’s office, Dahle’s top priority in the new term is ensuring that dramatic recent changes in health care – including the Affordable Care Act, the expansion of Medi-Cal, and the transition of Medi-Cal into a managed-care system – don’t undermine the viability of rural medical systems.

“The small hospital districts and nonprofits that provide much of the critical-access care in the northeastern part of the state have always been lean operations, but changes in the medical system are making it more difficult than ever to recruit doctors and supply key services,” Dahle said.

“California needs a medical system that meets the needs of the whole state.”

The Assemblyman will also continue to promote sensible management of the North State’s forest resources to reduce the risk of catastrophic wildfires and protect communities while promoting jobs in the woods.

First elected to the Assembly in 2012, Dahle continues to operate the family farm in Lassen County’s Big Valley. He lives in Bieber with his wife, Megan, and their three children.

The 1st Assembly District, reaching from the Oregon border to Lake Tahoe, includes all of Lassen, Modoc, Nevada, Plumas, Shasta, Sierra and Siskiyou Counties and parts of Butte and Placer Counties.
