Assemblyman Bill Dodd Running for State Senate Seat

BD-campaign-headshotState Assemblyman Bill Dodd today announced he is a candidate for the State Senate in District 3. Dodd’s announcement includes an event featuring over two hundred local leaders who support his election to the Senate. They include elected county supervisors, city councilmembers, sheriffs, district attorneys and other local office holders, as well as Congressman Mike Thompson.

“I’m running for everyone who is concerned about the California that we are passing on to future generations, and for young people confronting a future with greater uncertainty,“ said Dodd. “I will push for policies that renew the promise of the American Dream and expand the Middle Class – access to high quality K-12 and college educations, support for small business creation and expansion, and improved roads and highways that help the economy grow rather than drag it down.”

Assemblyman Dodd also announced that Representative Mike Thompson, current District 3 State Senator Lois Wolk, and Solano County Supervisor Jim Spering have endorsed his candidacy.

“Bill and I have worked together on many issues,” said Congressman Thompson. “Most recently, Bill was instrumental in having 330,000 acres of Berryessa Snow Mountain declared a national monument, which preserves an environmental and recreational treasure.

“Bill has my support because he will be effective in the State Senate on issues that matter for real people,” continued Thompson.

“Bill has been an effective partner on many issues for our district, including assistance for those affected by last year’s Napa earthquake,” said Senator Lois Wolk. “Bill is tenacious, principled, and a good listener – a great choice to follow me in the Senate.”

“Bill was the driving force behind the recently completed improvements to Highway 29 through Jamieson Canyon in Solano and Napa Counties,” said Supervisor Jim Spering. “No one else could have done what Bill accomplished.

“He is a person of action and I’m proud to endorse him for Senate,” continued Spering.

Dodd’s other public service achievements include:
•    Leading the multi-billion dollar project to control flooding in Napa County that included major environmental achievements such as the restoration of over 800 acres of wetlands;
•    Strengthening and extending Napa County’s historic agricultural preservation initiative;
•    Co-authoring legislation implementing a state Earned Income Tax Credit, which directly puts money back in the pockets of working families;
•    Working to include $400 million in the state budget for Career Technical Education.

Dodd also posted a video announcing his candidacy. It can be seen at www.billdodd.com

The 3rd Senate District includes all of Napa and Solano Counties, as well as portions of Contra Costa, Sacramento, Sonoma and Yolo Counties. It includes the cities of Petaluma, Cotati, Rohnert Park, Sonoma, Pleasant Hill, Martinez, American Canyon, Calistoga, Napa, St. Helena, Yountville, Benicia, Dixon, Fairfield, Rio Vista, Suisun City, Vacaville, Vallejo, Davis, Winters, Woodland and Isleton.

Dodd is a Democrat from Napa County. After a successful 25-year business career, Dodd served four terms on the Napa County Board of Supervisors, and currently represents the 4th Assembly District.
