Dan Wolk Announces Run for State Assembly

Portrait-45_HRDavis Mayor Dan Wolk announced today in an email to supporters that he is running for the California State Assembly in 2016. In the email, Wolk also stated he has endorsements from more than 20 local elected leaders. Wolk’s announcement comes on the heels on Assemblymember Bill Dodd’s decision to run for State Senate.

“I am running for Assembly to ensure that everyone has the opportunity to succeed,” said Wolk. “As mayor and a county attorney, I have seen the challenges facing our region firsthand – in Sacramento, I will fight tirelessly and collaboratively to address them.”

Wolk also outlined some of his top priorities, including fighting for the middle class, growing the local economy, ensuring a resilient water supply, protecting natural resources and guaranteeing access to quality education for California’s students.

Wolk begins his campaign with support from more than 20 elected officials from around the district. They include Napa County Supervisors Diane Dillon and Mark Luce, Solano County Supervisors Jim Spering and John Vasquez and Yolo County Supervisor Oscar Villegas.

A full list of the announced endorsements is attached or can be found at DanWolk.org.

Currently serving as Mayor, Wolk has been on the Davis City Council since 2011. In that time, he has led efforts to construct a regional surface water project, pushed for greater investment in streets, parks and other vital infrastructure, promoted renewable energy initiatives and has passed fiscally responsible city budgets, while restoring the city’s rainy day reserves.

Wolk works as a Deputy County Counsel for Solano County, handling public finance, public contracting and water issues. He is also the founder of the Legal Clinic of Yolo County, a legal services provider for low-income families. Wolk grew up in Davis and attended local public schools, before attending Stanford University and receiving his law degree from UC Berkeley’s Boalt Hall. He lives in Davis with his wife, Jamima, a former professional triathlete and small business owner, and their two daughters, Avery and Layla.

Assembly District 4 consists of Napa and Lake Counties, most of Yolo County, as well as portions of Sonoma, Solano and Colusa Counties.
