Billed themselves as
they vowed to stand up for the residents of their communities
against what they say is an unconstitutional onslaught from
regulators in Sacramento and Washington, D.C.
The people in Siskiyou were
echoing points I’ve heard throughout rural California. As they see
it, government regulators are pursuing controversial policies —
i.e., diverting water from farms to save a bait fish, the Delta
smelt, clamping down on carbon dioxide emissions to address global
warming even if it means driving food processors out of the Central
Valley, demolishing dams to increase a population of fish that isn’t
endangered — without caring about the costs to rural residents.

About Tim Donnelly
was elected in
November 2010 to represent the 59th Assembly District. The
third oldest of 14, Tim was born in Atlanta, Georgia; he made his
way to California to attend the University of California, Irvine in
1989. Working several jobs to pay his way, Tim earned his B. A. in
English. After college he went to work for his father in the small
family business, supplying parts to plastics manufacturers. After
five years, he started his own small business, providing solutions
to his customer's manufacturing problems. Having twenty years'
experience on the front lines of manufacturing, Tim brings a unique
understanding of the problems facing one of the most important
sectors in our economy.
In 2005, Tim
answered the call of his country, and joined the fight to secure our
borders. As the founder of the largest Minuteman chapter in
California, he leveraged the media to bring national attention to
the Federal government's failure to enforce the border. Since then,
Congress voted against amnesty, to improve the border fence and
double the Border Patrol presence. The American public is acutely
aware of the drug war, which has claimed over 40,000 lives in 4
years, and the violence that has spilled over the border into
Legislature, Tim has earned the reputation of a conservative who
holds steadfast to his beliefs: fighting illegal immigration,
defending public safety, removing restrictions on business growth,
and protecting the taxpayers' pocketbooks.
Tim serves as Vice
Chair of the Committees on Revenue and Taxation and Higher
Education. He also serves on the Appropriations Committee, Rules
Committee and Joint Committee on Legislative Audit Committee.
He is honored to
represent the communities of Apple Valley, Arcadia, Bradbury,
Claremont, Crestline, Glendora, Hesperia, Highland, La Crescenta, La
Verne, Lake Arrowhead, Monrovia, Redlands, San Bernardino, San Dimas
and Sierra Madre. Tim is blessed to live in the scenic San
Bernardino Mountains with his wonderful wife, Rowena, five sons, and
