Brian Dahle is running for reelection in California’s 1st assembly district. It encompasses Lassen, Modoc, Nevada, Plumas, Shasta, Sierra, and Siskiyou counties in their entirety and claims the most of California’s northern border.
Dahle was elected as a Republican to the Lassen County Board of Supervisors in 1996 and served four consecutive terms on the body. He was appointed by Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger to the California Sierra Nevada Conservancy and serves on the board of the Regional Council of Rural Counties. He has represented the heavily conservative 1st district in the State Assembly since 2012, when he handily won the seat over a Democratic challenger. His goals are to reform the budget, reduce government regulation and preserve economic freedom.
