Last week my staff and I traveled to Siskiyou County to continue connecting with you in the district while session is out. The first stop on our trip was with Karuk Tribal Chairman Buster Attebury to discuss projects the tribe is working on in the community as well as how we can support them in the legislature. A big thank you to my friend‚ Chairman Attebury‚ for taking the time to meet and host our team in Happy Camp. (Bottom right) Our next stop was at Caltrans’ Happy Camp Complete Streets Open House‚ a Karuk Tribe-sponsored event aimed at showcasing plans to enhance safety‚ accessibility‚ and the overall quality of life along State Route 96. (Top right) Learn more about this project here.
Next‚ we visited Happy Camp Community Center to tour the facility and deliver their resolution for the 1st Assembly District’s Nonprofit of the Year. (Top left) Led by Abby Yeager and her dedicated team‚ the center serves as a crucial support system for the community‚ addressing various needs from Slater Fire recovery to childcare. This organization is truly a hub of community information and support‚ and I am proud to recognize their outstanding work with this year’s nonprofit of the year award. If you have an idea for our next nonprofit of the year‚ let me know here.
The following day my staff and I met with Kory Hayden and Jen Thackeray from Siskiyou Economic Development to discuss upcoming projects in the area. We had the opportunity to tour the former library‚ a historic building in downtown Yreka set to be transformed into the future EDC office and community space‚ courtesy of hard-earned grant funding.
We ended our time in Yreka with a meeting at the city‚ where Community Development Director‚ Julianna Lucchesi‚ and team provided an in-depth presentation on the city’s future planning efforts‚ housing solutions‚ and disaster resilience. Thank you to all who were involved in this week’s meetings. I commend you on your commitment to building up our communities.
Stay tuned for more information from the district. As always‚ you can contact my office here should you have a legislative idea to share or need our assistance.

|Roseburg Mill Tour with Eric Wafford|
Earlier this year‚ during the legislative session‚ I had the pleasure of meeting Eric Wafford in Sacramento. Eric’s journey and the story of his path to success were truly inspiring.
With the legislative session concluded for the year‚ I recently had the chance to revisit Eric and several of his colleagues at their workplace in Weed‚ California. After discussing legislative matters and sharing updates on the initiatives I have been working on for the 1st Assembly District‚ my staff and I joined Eric for a comprehensive tour of the mill. During our visit‚ we also met several other dedicated colleagues working on-site.
Growing up in rural Northern California‚ I am well acquainted with mill operations and the immense dedication displayed by employees in these roles. I extend my heartfelt thanks to all who took the time to greet us during our visit‚ and I am particularly grateful to Eric for orchestrating the meeting.
|In the District: Plumas County|
On Friday‚ my staff and I traveled to Plumas County to connect with local leaders in various industries. Our first stop was at Feather River College where we toured their campus and discussed a unique feature they offer to students- acquiring a Bachelor’s Degree in Equine and Ranch Management. With employment opportunities in agriculture expected to remain in demand over the next decade‚ this is an incredible opportunity for our rural youth‚ especially‚ who are interested in pursuing a career in this field. I applaud Feather River College for increasing access to education opportunities through their innovative programs. Thank you to Feather River College President Kevin Trutna‚ Agriculture Department Chair Russell Reid‚ Beef Program Instructor J.P. Tanner‚ and Ranch Facilities Manager James Read for your hospitality.
Next we toured Plumas District Hospital where we discussed the long term care facility being constructed across the street from the existing hospital. We also discussed the impacts of the lack of housing on the ability to recruit necessary staff. California’s housing crisis is especially impacting rural areas, such as my district. Thank you to Plumas District Hospital CEO JoDee Read and Plumas District Hospital COO Darren Beaty for taking the time to meet with me and my staff.
|Redding Area Bus Authority (RABA) Introduces Route 15 to Support Veterans|
Senate and Assembly staff recently attended the ribbon-cutting ceremony for the launch of Route 15 by the Redding Area Bus Authority (RABA) on October 18th at the Redding Outpatient VA Clinic. Route 15‚ which commenced on October 2nd‚ is a significant step in providing crucial transportation assistance for local veterans visiting the clinic on Redding’s south side. This new bus service also addresses the transportation needs of veterans‚ connecting them to vital locations like the VA Clinic‚ the Veterans Home‚ and the Redding Regional Airport.
The expansion of services will significantly benefit our local veteran community‚ and I commend RABA and its local agencies on taking this important step to further support veterans in the 1st Assembly District. Learn more about Route 15 here.
