Happy Thanksgiving from Team Dahle!
I look forward to spending more time in the district in the coming weeks and gearing up for 2024. As we approach Thanksgiving‚ I’m reminded of the many things we’re grateful for in the 1st Assembly District: the beauty‚ community‚ family‚ and more.
My team has been working hard to make sure the voices of the North State are heard in Sacramento. We call it “Raising Rural Voices.” This involves bringing people from other parts of the state to our district so they can understand rural living‚ with all its beauty and challenges. We’re creating laws that address issues specific to our district‚ fixing problems not only for us but for other areas where similar challenges exist. For instance‚ AB 516 makes cultural ceremonies excused absences for students‚ and AB 925 bridges the funding gap for sexual assault forensic exams. Both ideas came from people like you in the district. (Click on the previous links to watch the videos we’ve put together about where the ideas for these bills came from and how they benefit our North State communities.) I’m proud of the work we’ve done so far and look forward to another year of making changes that directly impact the people of the 1st Assembly District. It’s an honor to represent you.
In the meantime‚ colder weather often means power outages for some of our communities. If you are looking for outage updates in your area‚ be sure to visit the PG&E Outage Map here or check with your local utility provider. You can also find helpful tips for preparing for outages here.
Cheers to the year ahead and Happy Thanksgiving from Team Dahle!

|Help Our Forests, Cut Your Own Christmas Tree
One of the many things I love about the North State is our forests. During the holidays‚ our forests provide a wonderful opportunity to enjoy the outdoors with your loved ones and chop down your own Christmas tree for the cost of about $10 / permit.
Participating in this opportunity has a dual purpose – providing your family with a fresh‚ healthy tree and thinning overly dense areas of the forest which helps with wildfire prevention‚ among other benefits. Each forest has a map highlighting the areas where tree cutting is permitted. Be sure to identify an acceptable area and obtain a permit before you go. Here are a few links to help you get started with obtaining a permit in your area:
|Shop Local – Small Business Saturday
This week we get the opportunity to celebrate Small Business Saturday! It’s a day to acknowledge the pivotal role played by small businesses in fostering economic vibrancy and a distinct local identity.
Small business owners are our friends and neighbors; the supporters of our kids’ little league teams; the ones who come through for us when we truly need it.
On Small Business Saturday – and every day – our support not only contributes to the success of small business owners‚ but to the communities we live in as a whole. Let’s collectively make a positive impact by championing local businesses on this Small Business Saturday.
