I hope this message finds you well. In the spirit of Wildfire Preparedness Week‚ I met with representatives from CalFire 2881 and California Professional Firefighters (CPF) to discuss important issues related to wildfire preparedness and response. I was joined by Scott Witt and Ivy Williams of CalFire 2881‚ and Steven Tenorio and Brett Morris of Redding Fire Local 1934. We discussed the need for additional firefighter staffing in their department‚ its public safety employee organizations‚ and CPF’s legislative package. Thank you to both organizations for being engaged on these crucial topics impacting the communities we collectively serve.
I addressed the California Association of Realtors at their annual legislative day in Sacramento alongside Senator Dahle. We discussed hot topic issues for the real estate industry‚ legislation that impacts their industry‚ the future of housing in California and more. It was great to connect with realtors from the 1st Assembly District.
At Shasta SELPA’s Legislative Information Sharing Day‚ we discussed important issues related to special education in the Shasta County area. SELPA is a crucial organization that brings together 27 school districts‚ the Shasta County Office of Education‚ and four charter schools for special education purposes. I appreciate the discussion around how we can support students with disabilities in our communities.
Finally‚ I have some exciting news on my legislation. AB-1342: California College Promise: fee waiver eligibility‚ AB-1326: School district board vacancies: internet website notifications are moving on to the senate. AB-1141: Ag Pass is moving to the Assembly Floor.
More updates to come on important issues like these.

|CalFire Media Day|
As part of the ongoing Wildfire Preparedness Week‚ Team Dahle recently joined forces with CalFire Shasta-Trinity Unite and the U.S. Forest Service to witness the supervisors in training from across the United States perform aerial operations exercises. With firefighting from the air being one of the most perilous activities in wildland firefighting‚ this inter-agency course presented participating students with the unique opportunity to coordinate air tankers‚ helicopters‚ and smokejumper fighting aircraft on a simulated fire in Shasta County.
The class‚ which hosted 18 students hailing from various parts of the U.S. and even Greece‚ was split equally between CalFire and the U.S. Forest Service. Known for its reputation in hosting students from all over the world‚ this is the only class of its kind in all of California. We extend our heartfelt appreciation to CalFire Shasta-Trinity Unite and the U.S. Forest Service for their dedicated efforts towards ensuring the safety of our communities.
|Annual Children’s Memorial Flag Raising|
Recently‚ my staff had the honor of attending the Annual Children’s Memorial Flag Raising at the Superior Court of Shasta County. This event served as a solemn reminder that all children deserve to be safe and free from abuse and neglect.
As part of National Child Abuse Prevention Month‚ the ceremony was a tribute to children who have lost their lives due to child abuse and neglect. We were in the company of community partners‚ including the Shasta County Health and Human Services Agency (HHSA)‚ who are working tirelessly to eradicate child abuse and decrease the impact of Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACEs).
Let us continue to work together to ensure that every child in our community is safe and thriving. Learn more here.
