January at the Capitol


I hope this message finds you well as we usher in the month of February!

Last month brought a number of visitors to our office‚ a testament to the engagement of businesses and organizations within the 1st Assembly District in the legislative process. I am appreciative of those who took the time to connect‚ sharing their insights and needs for the upcoming legislative year.

Among the noteworthy meetings were:

  • County Health Executives Association of California’s annual lobby day; Representatives from five different counties in the 1st Assembly District‚ including Alpine‚ Lassen‚ Nevada‚ Sierra‚ and Siskiyou‚ were present.
  • Bright Futures for Youth‚ a nonprofit serving the youth in the Nevada County region and last year’s Nonprofit of the Year for the 1st Assembly District.
  • Lake Tahoe Community College‚ where discussions took place regarding the educational landscape in the 1st Assembly District.
  • A meeting with representatives from Habitat for Humanity‚ exploring collaborative opportunities to address community needs.
  • Placer County CASA‚ a group that provides a vital service to children in the foster care system.

I extend my gratitude to all who made the journey to the Capitol to engage with legislators. In the current climate‚ it is more crucial than ever to be “Raising Rural Voices” in the legislature‚ ensuring that the concerns of rural communities are not only heard but actively considered in the crafting of legislation.

Should you have any thoughts on legislation that you wish to share with me and my team‚ please feel free to communicate through this link: https://ad01.asmrc.org/contact-me/. Thank you.

El Dorado School Board Association Meeting

Team Dahle had the privilege of participating in a meeting convened by the El Dorado School Board Association‚ where we gained insights into the positive developments within our educational institutions and identified areas for improvement.

El Dorado County‚ encompassing 15 districts and 67 schools‚ poses a significant educational landscape. Dr. Ed Manansala‚ the County Superintendent of Schools‚ provided a concise overview to the association‚ setting the stage for a roundtable discussion among representatives from the various school districts in the area. During this session‚ each representative shared uplifting anecdotes about their staff and students‚ highlighting innovative programs implemented to enhance youth education.

In line with the challenges faced by numerous schools and districts in Assembly District 1‚ our team attentively listened to concerns such as insufficient funding‚ challenges in staff recruitment‚ and the ongoing struggle to maintain student engagement. Despite these obstacles‚ the prevailing sentiment was one of optimism and encouragement. Representatives showcased tangible progress‚ indicating that students may be on the verge of overcoming the hurdles posed by the recent pandemic.

The meeting provided a comprehensive overview of the educational landscape in El Dorado County‚ emphasizing both achievements and areas in need of attention. The positive messages conveyed by representatives served as a beacon of hope‚ signaling progress amid the challenges faced by our educational institutions.
