SPECIAL GUEST SPEAKER: ASSEMBLYWOMAN MEGAN DAHLE
Recently re-elected to the California State Assembly from Assembly District 1, Megan Dahle will be our keynote speaker in February.
Assemblywoman Dahle is a native of the north state where she lives and farms in Lassen County with her husband, State Senator Brian Dahle and their 3 children.
Mrs. Dahle won re- election with 57.6% of the vote, to Democrat Elizabeth Betancourt’s 42.4%, a 15% margin. Of eighty members of the state Assembly, Ms. Dahle is one of nineteen Republicans who make up 24% of the Assembly body. She is one of five elected GOP women there. District One encompasses the northeastern part of the state running from the Oregon border to Lake Tahoe, west almost to Sacramento and following a jagged, gerrymandered line north with the west boundary somewhat similar to Congressional District One. Assembly District One has a population of 466,514 and is mostly rural in topography and conservative in outlook.
This legislative year the Assemblywoman has been appointed to the following policy committees: Appropriations; Business and Professions; Education; Environmental Safety and Toxic Materials; will serve as vice chair of Water, Parks, and Wildlife; and serves on the Joint Committee on Fisheries and Aquaculture. Mrs. Dahle will, as she did in the last legislative session, continue to advocate for the needs of rural schools, funding for charter schools, and for parental choice. She supports measures that make employment and licensing easier for struggling California businesses.
In response to Governor Newsom’s mishandling and one size fits all Covid edicts, she was one of the sponsors of the Healthy Communities Resolution, which our club supported and sent to the Board of Supervisors for adoption. Most recently Assemblywoman Dahle is working to clean up the Employment Development Department where billions of relief dollars were given to non-citizens and people who did not qualify, while needy, unemployed residents waited for help.
We’ve asked the Assemblywoman to react to and explain her recent votes against the California Budget Acts and to highlight legislation she has introduced, legislation she supports, and legislation she will oppose this session. Surely she’ll paint a picture of what it’s like to be outnumbered by progressives in Sacramento. Additionally we’ve invited Mrs. Dahle to outline a path to a resurgence of the GOP in California.
Program note: In the event that Assemblywoman Dahle is unable to attend our meeting at the last moment due to an unanticipated legislative duty, Board of Supervisors chairman, Dan Miller has agreed to step in to deliver the remarks he had planned to make at our January meeting.
