U. S. Congressman Wally Herger


About Wally,

Wally was born in Sutter County in 1945 and raised on a cattle ranch in the small community of Rio Oso, located just south of Yuba City/Marysville. His public service career began when he was elected to the East Nicolaus School Board in 1976. In 1980, inspired by Ronald Reagan, he made a successful run for the California State Assembly where he served until his election to the House of Representatives in 1986. Wally and his wife, Pam, are the proud parents of nine children, and have nine grandchildren. Pam and Wally currently reside in Chico.

Wally is a third generation rancher and small businessman from Northern California who throughout his tenure in Congress has continued to advocate for core conservative principles: a strong, secure America; a limited, fiscally responsible government; low taxes and fewer regulations on small businesses; and promoting traditional values.
Wally is the second most senior Republican on the House Ways and Means Committee, an important committee that has jurisdiction over taxes, trade, Social Security and health care. At the beginning of the 111th Congress (2009), Wally was named the Ranking Member of the Ways and Means Health Subcommittee, where he was a very vocal opponent of President Obama's health care reform plan and advocated for market-based solutions to reform health care without growing government. He also maintained his seat on the Trade Subcommittee from which he has continued working to eliminate foreign trade barriers and open overseas markets for Northern California farmers and ranchers.
California Senator Elect Doug LaMalfa


About Doug

Doug LaMalfa is a fourth generation rice farmer and business owner who has lived in Northern California all his life. He and his wife, Jill, along with their four children, Kyle, Allison, Sophia and Natalie make their home on the family farm in Richvale. Doug attended local schools and grew up learning the value of hard work and community service. Doug earned his degree in Ag/Business from Cal Poly San Luis Obispo. He now manages the family farming business originally founded by his great-grandfather in 1931.

An active leader in Northern California agriculture, Doug was elected as a founding director of the California Rice Commission from Butte County. Doug also served on the Domestic Promotion Committee of the USA Rice Federation.
A conservative Republican in word and deed, Doug LaMalfa has opposed increasing taxes and is a stalwart defender of Proposition 13.  With a proven record of fighting on behalf of working families, Doug knows that taxpayers know better than bureaucrats and politicians how to spend and invest their own hard-earned money. He opposed the 2007 and 2008 budgets that have been proven shams that have resulted in California’s current budget crisis.
He has been a strong supporter of private property rights inside and outside the Capitol, authoring a Constitutional Amendment and helping place three initiatives on the ballot to protect Californians against eminent domain abuse.
Water is our most precious natural resource and Doug LaMalfa believes in protecting our water rights and developing more water storage. He has continually advocated for increasing California’s water supply, supporting planned projects such as Sites Reservoir. Doug has been a leader in opposing burdensome environmental regulations that place fairy shrimp and fish ahead of human needs. In 2004, he was the only California Legislator invited to testify at a Congressional Field hearing to restrict the overreaching federal Endangered Species Act.
California Assemblyman Jim Nielsen


About Jim

Assemblyman Jim Nielsen is honored to represent the 2nd Assembly District, which includes Butte, Colusa, Glenn, Modoc, Shasta, Siskiyou, Sutter, Tehama and Yolo counties.

Assemblyman Nielsen has quickly distinguished himself as a tough fiscal conservative and was appointed Vice Chairman of both the Assembly Appropriations Committee and the Assembly Budget Committee. In his capacity as Vice Chairman he led the effort to cut tens of billions of dollars of waste from the state budget.

Currently, Nielsen serves as the Vice Chair of the Assembly Budget Committee, and as a member of the Appropriations, Veterans Affairs, and Rules Committees.
In the first two years of his State Assembly service Nielsen was part of the Water Conference Committee which produced a water plan for California that protects water rights for Northern California. Assemblyman Nielsen is working tirelessly on issues that reflect his constituents' interests and values. He established himself as a traditional, tough-on-crime conservative who champions the cause for lower taxes, controlled government spending, private property rights, and reforming state regulation.
In 2010, Assemblyman Nielsen sponsored a measure to save the Williamson Act, which enables local governments to enter into contracts with private landowners for the purpose of protecting agricultural uses such as farming and ranching.
