This Week: County Fairs‚ Bike Against Traffic and More


The 1st Assembly District is in the midst of County Fair season! County Fairs are such a vital part of rural communities‚ especially. In addition to providing family fun and delicious food‚ they are important economic drivers and instill an important appreciation for agriculture in our young people. Our fair grounds also provide shelter and care during natural disasters‚ such as wildfires. Fairs are especially nostalgic for me having grown up with my grandfather who was the fair manager for over 40 years at the Intermountain Fair in McArthur.

Here is a list of some of the remaining fairs happening in the 1st Assembly District. Find them all here on my website or listed below. If you know of a fair in the 1st Assembly District that is not listed below‚ please respond to this email with the date, location, and website.

Women Business Center JediSBA District Director in Shasta County

This week‚ my staff had the privilege of visiting the Women’s Business Center at JEDI during a site visit by the Small Business Association (SBA) Sacramento District Director‚ Heather Luzzi. Executive Director Nancy Swift‚ and her team graciously hosted the meeting where client success stories were shared by two inspiring entrepreneurs in our community.

As a business owner‚ entrepreneur‚ and member of the Women’s Caucus‚ I am encouraged by the support being provided to our local entrepreneurs in California‚ a state known for its challenging rules and regulations for business owners. Starting and growing a business here requires immense dedication and a strong support system‚ which is what the Women’s Business Center at JEDI offers.

Assemblywoman Dahle FaceTime meeting with Bike Against TrafficBike Against Traffic

I recently had a FaceTime meeting with the amazing team from Bike Against Traffic (BAT)! The timing of this meeting couldn’t have been more significant‚ coming right after our successful efforts in Sacramento to pass the crucial anti-trafficking bill‚ SB-14‚ in the California State Assembly Public Safety Committee.

BAT‚ a nonprofit based in Redding‚ California‚ is dedicated to combating human trafficking through cycling events. Their 2023 mission involves biking 4‚200 miles along the Trans-America Bike Route to raise awareness and support Unseen Ministries- an organization that provides services to trafficking victims and works to prevent trafficking- and their partners in their fight against trafficking.

I look forward to connecting with this group again‚ after they finish their cross-country journey later this month. Learn more about this local organization on their website here.

Cal Trans Update Road ClosureCalTrans Road Closures

Beginning this Monday‚ July 24th‚ Caltrans will initiate a bridge maintenance project in Lassen‚ Plumas‚ and Tehama Counties. This $5.2 million project‚ fully funded by Senate Bill (SB) 1‚ aims to repair and improve 17 bridges‚ ensuring safer access for commuters and facilitating the movement of goods.

The project will involve essential repairs such as polyester concrete overlays and joint seal and abutment work. While this is great news for the long-term integrity of the bridges‚ it may cause temporary traffic disruptions during the construction period.

Motorists should anticipate one-way traffic control at most locations‚ leading to up to 5-minute delays on weekdays (Monday to Friday) during daytime hours. Night work is scheduled for the Susan River Bridge‚ and lane/shoulder closures will occur at the Evans Canyon Undercrossing.

Here is a list of the bridges that will undergo rehabilitation during the project:
  • Susan River Bridge (#1) – State Route 36‚ Lassen County
  • Susan River Bridge (#2) – State Route 36‚ Lassen County
  • Pit River Bridge – State Route 299‚ Lassen County
  • Evans Canyon Undercrossing – U.S. 395‚ Lassen County
