North State farmer and State Senator Doug LaMalfa (R-CA) kicked off his campaign in the new 1st Congressional district today.

“I am honored to be able to stand here before you today and formally announce my candidacy for the United States House of Representatives,” LaMalfa told his supporters. “First I want to thank Congressman Wally Herger, not only for his endorsement of me, but for the years of dedication and for the dignity with which he served our area.”

LaMalfa said he would focus on protecting and expanding the job opportunities provided by the district’s timber, mining, water, farm and ranching industries, and reducing spending and waste.

“Crushing environmental regulations and rules need to be brought into balance with the real everyday needs of people,” said LaMalfa. “I have believed for some time now that Washington is out of touch with everyday Americans and especially with those of us lucky enough to live in the rural North State and rural America. One of my goals will be to make sure other members of Congress understand there is a whole world outside of Washington full of hard-working families trying to make ends meet.

“As your representative in Washington, D.C., I will work to: reduce the debt and balance the budget; reduce taxes so working families and small businesses can keep more of their hard-earned money; repeal unnecessary regulations that hamper our ability to create jobs; protect North State water rights and increase water storage throughout the state; and stand up for our conservative values of freedom, family, hard work and individual responsibility,” La Malfa said.

Doug LaMalfa is a fourth generation rice farmer. A lifelong resident of Northern California, Doug attended local schools and grew up learning the value of hard work and community service. Doug earned his degree in Ag/Business from Cal Poly San Luis Obispo. He and his wife, Jill, along with their four children, make their home on the family farm in Richvale. His state senate district covers much of the same territory as the new first congressional district. ■
