3rd District Assemblyman Dan Logue came by the KNCO studios yesterday (Wednesday) to announce his campaign for the newly redrawn Assembly District 1 which will include all of Nevada County. Logue, describes himself as a fiscal conservative, small business owner, and a staunch opponent of high taxation and government waste. Logue has gotten 6 bills signed in the Assembly, including the telehealth bill that will make medical care available to patients in remote areas.
“It’ll create thousands of jobs. It’s a bill that I’m really excited about. It really rolls back the red tape in the health care field. I’m vice chairman of health, so we have access now to telehealth medicine all the way throughout the mountains of this region where they can get specialty care from a neurologist, urologist, any kind of specialty care within minutes.”
Last year Assemblyman Logue also headed a delegation to Texas to see what can be done to bring jobs back to California.
“I was able to get Gavin Newsome, Lt. Governor to go as a democrat on a bi-partisan trip was to prove to the people of Sacramento that our second highest unemployment rate in the nation isn’t because of the recession but because of our policy.”
Logue recently moved with his wife Peggy to Penn Valley to make him eligible to run for the Assembly District 1 seat. Also announced for the seat are Rick Bosetti, a Redding City Council member and Charley Hooper, a Pharmaceutical and biotech consultant who lives in Grass Valley.
