Supervisor Kim Dolbow-Vann Files Papers to Run for Congress

August 18, 2011 Kim Dolbow Vann, Supervisor from Colusa County, filed paperwork this week with the Federal Election Commission to run for the House of Representatives in the new 3rd Congressional District.

“The dysfunction in Washington, D.C. is preventing economic recovery,” said Vann. “We need voices of reason with real-world business experience. I’ve created jobs in the private sector, fought against regulatory hurdles that prevent job growth and helped bring higher education to a rural area. While Washington has consumed itself with petty infighting, I’ve been focused on finding solutions.”

“That’s the problem with too much of Washington right now; they’re looking for the easy way out, not for real solutions. Printing more money and going deeper into debt just puts off the crisis to another day, to another generation,” added Vann. “We need to get spending under control and eliminate the Washington culture where chronic waste is not just acceptable… it’s the norm.”
A fourth-generation family farmer in Northern California, Vann put her experience with business and agriculture to work right out of college, helping small farmers export their products through the World Trade Center in San Diego. Since then, she has worked as a legislative advisor in county government, as Senior Advisor to former Congressman Doug Ose and for the past eight years as a successful businesswoman, breaking down regulatory barriers to economic development.

“This district faces very real policy issues that need a champion. Unemployment is as high as 20%. In the coming years, Congress will be voting on a Farm Bill, we’ll see another round of base closures and we are slowly but steadily losing our water supply to Southern California. As a member of Congress, I’ll keep up my fight to reduce the regulatory roadblocks on job growth, I’ll fight to protect Travis and Beale Air Force Bases, and I’ll fight to protect our agricultural economy and our water rights,” Vann added.

First elected to the Board of Supervisors in 2006, Vann has established her reputation as a tireless advocate for protecting local government. She is the incoming Chair of the Regional Council of Rural Counties, representing more than 30 small and rural counties throughout the state. She also serves as Vice Chair of the Agriculture and Natural Resources Committee for the California State Association of Counties.

Adopted by the state’s redistricting commission this week, the sprawling new 3rd Congressional District includes Colusa County, parts of Glenn, Lake, Sutter, Yuba, Sacramento, Solano and Yolo Counties. The district covers some of the most productive farmland in the state and is home to some of the most important business centers, educational institutions, national security facilities and nature preserves in the nation. From Travis Air Force Base, the Suisun Marsh and the Fairfield Candy Cluster at its southern end, the district winds north and includes UC Davis, Beale Air Force Base, the Plumas National Forest and a wide variety of row crops, orchards and vineyards.

Vann has already secured the endorsement of political leaders Congressman Wally Herger, Congressman Jeff Denham, former Congressman Doug Ose, state Senator Doug LaMalfa, state Assemblyman Jim Nielsen and dozens of business leaders and local elected officials. She will make a formal announcement about the race in early September. â—„
