“I lived on a small ranch with my family,” said Dodd, “We grew grapes and walnuts. It was a lot of work!”
After attending CSU Chico, Dodd went to work at a family water business in the North Bay with one of the largest Culligan Dealerships in Northern California.
“I worked with a small business and I understand the impact of government regulation on businesses,” said Dodd, “I understand how important it is for the government to stay out of small business and to let small businesses do what they do best.”
Elected as the 4th District Assemblyman in 2015, Dodd will be hosting his first Colusa County Barbecue at the Sacramento Valley Museum on Friday, April 17th, 2015, from 5:30pm-7:30pm.
The family-friendly event will include an outdoor barbecue, live music, and a tour of the Sacramento Valley Museum’s current exhibit.
“I want this to be an opportunity to meet the citizens of Colusa County and to be their voice,” said Dodd.
Dodd is currently advocating for the construction of the Sites Reservoir that will provide much-needed water storage for the drought-stricken state.
“The project will not only benefit local farmers but will help the overall water system,” said Dodd.
Dodd commented that it is important to him to understand the project fully and to make sure the public is fully aware of the project as well.
“I have been meeting with the property owners up at sites, as well as the stakeholders to ensure that this project goes smoothly as possible,” said Dodd.
With Sites providing the largest capacity for water storage, Dodd commented that it is an impressive project that could see funding in 2016.
“You know this is a significant project when both Republicans and Democrats agree on the matter,” said Dodd.
4th District Assemblyman Bill Dodd represents portions of Colusa County, including the City of Williams and Communities of Arbuckle, College City and Grimes.
“I am thoroughly pleased and impressed by Assemblymember Dodd’s Willingness to assist with the sites project,” commented Colusa County District 1 Supervisor, Kim Vann, “I worked with
Assembly member Dodd when he was a former supervisor for Napa and I look forward to working with him in my district’s as an assembly member.”
Assemblyman Dodd serves as Chair of the Select Committee on Wine and also serves on Committees representing Agriculture, Business and Professions, Rules, Transportation, Water, Parks and Wildlife, Fairs, Allocation and Classification.
